  • Binge eating
  • Mood issues related to food and diet

 

  • Body image and self-esteem challenges
  • Self-compassion and mindfulness
  • Self-care and healthy habits
  • Clinical Supervision

My approach combines Positive Psychology, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy, Nutritional and Mind-Body Science, all deeply rooted in Self-compassion and Mindfulness.

Together we will focus on:

  • Developing a healthy and enjoyable relationship with food and movement
  • Body and self-acceptance
  • Emotional and mood regulation
  • Mindfulness and self-compassion
  • And so much more…

​By eliminating all the ‘shoulds and shouldn’ts’, we focus on what’s right for your body and your personal style. As we work together, eating and health issues become a place of exploration. Instead of seeing challenges as the enemy, they become opportunities for growth and healing.  My focus is on helping clients reach their highest goals, not by strategies that punish, but through strategies that nourish.
