I am a huge advocate for helping others develop positive relationships with food. Through individual counselling, workshops, and words of encouragement, I do my very best to show others how to improve and grow in order to feel good about themselves, good about the food they eat & the body they are in.
POST HOLIDAY NO-SUGAR TRANSITION
Moving away from excess sugar into the New Year is a great place to start on your path to better health. We know we will feel better, work better, function better, without it. But HOW do we take it out? HOW do we move towards letting go of sugar in a successful, nurturing way?
replacing new year’s resolutions with real goals
This New Year, set realistic, doable goals rather than getting lost in hard to sustain resolutions. Realistic goal setting is not about reaching the highest point, nor is it a race to see who can get the healthiest, the quickest. It involves honestly thinking about something you could actually do; are willing to do; and want to do.
Eat Cake: Indulge With Intention
You can be strong in your conviction to eat well, be well, feel well, and still receive all the benefits of indulgence, my friend. Allowing good quality treats as part of your regular dietary regime is not only justifiable, but arguably necessary. No kidding.
It can be done.
Preventing Eating Disorder Development in your kids
It has taken me decades to find my voice in and around Eating Disorders. It wasn’t until I decided to cast light on my own struggles, talk openly about them and find strength in them, that I became truly able to honour my journey and begin to lend a hand to others. That’s the way life works, I guess.
Making Peace With Food
We live in a diet world.
Inundated daily with information instructing us what to eat, what not to eat, how to have a better body, flatter abs, be a certain size. We have been assaulted by diet lingo now for decades.
It’s time for a change.
raising intuitive eaters
Most of us were raised to believe that certain foods were “bad” while others were “good” and that how we behaved would dictate what we got to eat that day. The problem with this way of raising eaters, is that it teaches children to detach from food; to put food into “good” and “bad” categories; igniting feelings of insecurity, lack of control, guilt, and shame when it comes to food.
