I am a dedicated practitioner who firmly believes in the holistic integration of mind and body for optimal well-being. My practice is rooted in the principles of Health At Every Size, emphasising the importance of weight inclusivity. I understand that trauma can deeply impact one's relationship with food and body, and I approach each client with sensitivity, informed by a strong foundation in trauma-informed care. Additionally, I am deeply committed to social justice, recognizing the myriad ways societal structures can influence individual health and well-being.
My work is an amalgamation of various modalities, each chosen for its unique ability to address different facets of the human experience. While the foundation of my practice is grounded in nutrition science, I also incorporate:
- Intuitive Eating: Encouraging clients to tune into their body's cues and foster a healthier relationship with food.
- Mindfulness: Harnessing the power of the present moment to cultivate awareness and acceptance.
- CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy): Addressing and restructuring negative thought patterns that might contribute to unhealthy eating behaviours.
- Motivational Interviewing: Aiding clients in uncovering their intrinsic motivation for change.
- Neuroscience: Understanding the brain's role in eating behaviours, and how various factors, from neurotransmitter activity to hormonal imbalances, can influence our choices.
- Somatic Practices: Recognizing the profound connection between the body and mind, and using body-based techniques to process and heal trauma.
- Nutrition Counselling: Providing evidence-based guidance on nutrition, tailored to each individual's unique needs and circumstances.
At the heart of my practice is a person-centred approach. I believe that every individual is unique, with their own set of experiences, challenges, and aspirations. As such, every program I design is bespoke, tailored to align with each client's personal journey.
I am deeply passionate about helping individuals heal and recover from obsessions around food, overeating, emotional eating, and body image concerns. I firmly believe that everyone deserves to live a life where they feel fully nourished and comfortable in their own skin. Through our collaborative efforts, I aim to guide my clients towards this vision of holistic well-being.
