Is food constantly on your mind? Do you feel like you’re losing control around your eating habits? Are you continuously skipping meals and feeling guilty when eating? Restricting food to make up for “bad days”?

Unfortunately, preoccupation with food, diets and weight is very common in our society. However, the long-term effects of dieting are almost never a healthy body and balanced weight. Instead, increased levels of anxiety and depression are common between dieters, as well as impaired gut health, hormonal and blood pressure irregularities and increased bone loss.

Unhealthy eating practices also have a potential to spiral into disordered eating as well as eating disorders such as bulimia, anorexia, orthorexia (preoccupation with ‘healthy food’ with underlying weight concerns), night eating disorder or EDNOS (eating disorders not otherwise specified).

If you feel that your eating behaviours are chaotic or are experiencing stress around eating it is important to know that there is always a chance for you to change your relationship with food and find the balance between eating healthy and happily.

I will support you with compassion and free of judgement through your journey to normalised eating and more flexible relationship with food. I use a non-diet approach and believe that the ultimate goal is to be able to achieve patterns of eating behaviours that promote health and happiness.

The consultations about eating behaviours will focus on:

  • Reducing fear and anxiety around eating
  • Reducing the symptoms of disordered eating
  • Promoting a peaceful relationship with food
  • Recognising clues of hunger and satiety
  • Reducing cravings and emotional eating
  • Helping you move towards intuitive eating practices

In the management of eating disorders, I will work together with a psychologist and a GP.
