Meet Shannon, Nutrition Counsellor
I help people heal from disordered eating. Sounds pretty simple, right? Actually, it's not. That's why I've spent years training to help you.
My focus is helping people relearn how to eat, and how to get out of the stuck place they're currently in. My approach combines Nutrition Counselling, Non-Diet Approaches including Intuitive Eating, and disordered eating support.
I offer people the best of both worlds; a place to speak, and a place to "do."
Qualifications & training
To be honest, I don't think someone telling you all their qualifications helps you get to know them & how they might be able to help you. So I have all my training on a separate page...
We need to talk
If you’re struggling with your relationship to food, I'm here to help you.
My mission is to help people like you because I know how all-consuming a difficult relationship to food and your body is. Having struggled with my own disordered eating I am now in a unique position to help others recover. I don't know about you, but I spent years feeling like the people who were helping me just didn't get it.
I know what it's like to feel completely stuck and feel like there's no way out. I also totally get that a lot of the time, you don't want a way out. It's like there's two sides; one side is desperate to feel better with food and your body, and the other side is so not ready to let go. I completely get how resistant you might feel.
I also know what it's like to have no clue to feel better. You know you want to feel more relaxed around food, less guilt, less shame, and be able to fuel your body. But you just have no clue how to.
I want to support you from wherever you are in your relationship to food right now, all the way to full recover - however long that might take.
I combine my training in nutrition counselling, body image healing, Intuitive Eating, my Masters in nutrition, and so much more.
What breaks my heart the most when it comes to doing this work? Seeing people who are so deserving and in need of support, but they aren't offered treatment because they don't meet unfair criteria's. If that's you, I invite you to get in touch with me to speak about how I might be able to support you.
You have exactly what you need to recover. You just need expert, guided support.
