Let's work together to build sustainable, lifelong skills to foster a positive relationship with food, movement and your body, so that you can "walk away better, more free, more present, more connected to food, and to the joyful experience of eating, from being in our caring presence."
The approach of The Intuitive Dietitian Clinic is deeply rooted in the philosophies of Health At Every Size. Combining Intuitive Eating, Weight Inclusive Medical Nutrition Therapy, and Body Respect, we pride ourselves on focussing on your overall health and wellbeing, rather than your weight/size, in all services. Appointments are available via Face-to-face at the Clinic, Online from anywhere in the world, and Home Visits are available depending on circumstance.
We will meet you where you are at and work together to foster a positive relationship with food, movement and your body through developing and moulding life long skills to combat diet culture, cultivate sustainable self-care practices, practice gentle nutrition and develop healthy habits. Learn more about our approach below.
Intuitive Eating Counseling
Intuitive Eating is the core expertise of The Intuitive Dietitian Clinic, and despite your reasoning for coming to the Clinic, Intuitive Eating is almost always integrated into the work we'll do together. Connecting to your body's internal wisdom is at the heart of The Clinic, and Intuitive Eating is just this - learning to honour your hunger and fullness cues, making food enjoyable and satisfying again, practicing gentle nutrition and overall fostering a positive relationship with food and the eating experience.
Weight Inclusive Medical Nutrition Therapy
Every client that walks through the door has a unique background and circumstance. Our holistic approach to health involves using gentle nutrition as a tool for sustainable self-care to recover from disordered eating (orthorexia, compulsive/emotional eating, diet recovery, 'clean-eating' recovery), manage a gastrointestinal condition (such as IBS & Coeliac Disease), manage diabetes, and provide support through pregnancy. MNT is completley individualized to meet your current situation and stage of life.
Food and body shame are inextricably linked. One often comes with the other. This is why The Intuitive Dietitian Clinic is deeply rooted in HAES*. Your body deserves dignity and respect, no matter what. No matter the size or shape, and no matter what others may have told you. Developing body respect is a fundamental aspect and an essential part of the healing process. We offer a kind and compassionate space to help you process your own thoughts and feelings around your body and provide you with skills and tools to help release body shame.
