Why I became an Eating Psychology Coach
I love food and love eating, but in my clinics I see too many people who have an unhealthy relationship with food, and themselves
I want to help people become more relaxed around food, experience how wonderful it is and allow it to truly nourish them, rather than fight it and think it’s the enemy
For far too long, we’ve been inundated by negative messages about food, weight and diet.
We’ve been told that we’re willpower weaklings or that we need more control.
The media and other ‘nutrition experts’ promote conflicting advice. The result is people are confused about what to eat, and how to have a happy relationship with food and a healthy metabolism.
In my professional practice, I combine many of the best strategies from nutrition science (my studies to become a dietitian and ongoing reading and research) and eating psychology.
By eliminating all the “shoulds and shouldn’ts”, I focus on what’s right for your body and your personal style. As we work together in this way, eating and health issues become a place of exploration. Instead of seeing such challenges as the enemy, they become opportunities for growth and self improvement.
In my training at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, I’ve learned to help clients reach their highest goals not by strategies that punish, but through strategies that nourish.
I love this work 🙂
