About Help Yourself

Help Yourself was established by Kerith Duncanson and Rick Naylor in 1996. Kerith and Rick have more than 50 years combined experience in the medical, health and fitness industries.  The business was originally established to provide 1:1 and small group services to dietetic and exercise clients on the NSW mid north coast, however, it has now evolved into a nutrition and dietetic business exclusively, providing face to face and online dietetic services.
