I use a therapeutic relationship based on trust, understanding and compassion in order to support clients in making changes. Often clients feel shame about some of their eating or exercise habits. I am non-judgmental and understand that eating disorder symptoms and unhealthy habits develop for good reasons. My feedback is caring and honest, and I invite you to be part of the process of developing a plan for change.
Areas of Focus
Most of my experience has been helping clients with:
In our work together, I will emphasize practical, realistic steps. My approach isn’t about unsustainable “quick fixes”, but rather manageable changes that can last a lifetime. I am happy to work alongside other counsellors if you're already seeing someone else for psychological counselling.
Philosophy of Nutrition
I believe that food is not only fuel, but also an important part of our quality of life. I'll never label foods as “good” or “bad”. Nutrition choices are complex and multi-faceted. Our health isn’t determined just by what we eat, but also by how much, how often, and for what purpose.
The Nutrition Counselling Process
Nutrition work will be tailored to your individual needs. Together, we will explore what changes could be made to your eating and exercise routine, the pros and cons of making changes, which changes you feel willing and able to make right now, and how to support you in taking those next steps. You will control of the type and pace of change.
