I have a BSC Medical Honours Degree in Nutrition & Dietetics from The University Of Cape Town, and completed my undergraduate degree majoring in Human Kinetics & Ergonomics (HKE) and Psychology at Rhodes University. My primary interests are in general healthy eating, sports nutrition, eating disorders and cancer nutrition

Human Kinetics is a discipline focused on human movement and exercise and its impact on health and physical performance. This stimulated my interest in sports nutrition and the importance of nutrition for exercise and performance. I am passionate about exercise and completed a short course on exercise prescription in chronic diseases and special populations through Witwatersrand University.

I see food as nourishing and something that should be enjoyed not feared. I don’t see ‘healthy’ as being low calorie, but being the most nutritious option. I followed up my interest in eating disorders by doing further short courses on emotional eating, binge eating & bulimia nervosa and am waiting to complete my final course on restrictive eating disorders (anorexia nervosa, anorexia athletic and orthorexia).

Although weight management is what dieticians are mainly associated with, we also promote healthy diet and lifestyle and provide medical nutrition therpy and dietry advice to patients with medical conditions such as diabetes, cancer, Hypertention, hypercholesterolemia and more.

I am a qualified Counselling Psychologist with a Masters in the Social Sciences from the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal, where I received my Honours (cum laude). I am registered with the Health Professions Council as a Counselling Psychologist and have additional qualifications as a Play Therapist.

I have previously tutored Psychology at the Universityof Kwa-Zulu Natal and have been involved in a number of community projects as group facilitator and researcher. I also worked in the Student Counselling Centre at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal where I worked with a wide scope of issues ranging from depression and anxiety to relationship difficulties and career counselling. After leaving the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal I opened a private practice in Glenwood which I have recently expanded to include offices in Durban North.


Dr Azeema Khan is a Family Practitioner that graduated from Wits Medical School. After graduating and completing her internship, she worked in the UK in both
their private and public health sectors.
She worked in various disciplines, but largely in Emergency Medicine.Upon returning to South Africa she was invited to be an associate at the Bluff Medical Centre; a centre fully equipped with x-ray facilities, a theatre for minor procedures and a casualty/procedure unit. She practised there for eight years, having a special interest in female and paediatric health.

She then decided to take a short break to spend time with her two daughters, and has since resumed practice in Durban North, this being more convenient as she resides in Durban North. Her well-equipped practice offers a wide range of services that include ECG testing, blood sugar and cholesterol testing, equipment to deal with minor lacerations, removal of skin lesions, ‘tissue glue’ where indicated –esp for kiddies (meaning no needles needed!), and incision and drainage of abscesses.

She is also particularly known for her patient approach to papsmear testing and newer Liquid Based Cytology for cervical screening –at this consult female health issues are addressed and screened, a mammogram or bone density scan may be indicated. She is passionate about her patients and adopts an approach to a patient’s well-being that encompasses their social, emotional and physical well-being, motivating patients to be the best they can be!
