I am devoted to creating a safe, non-judgmental and accepting space in which clients can unlearn diet culture, redefine health, let go of constantly trying to “fix” themselves, and create a lifestyle that is rooted in acceptance and Body Trust®.
The five core competencies of Body Trust are:
Practice weight neutral self care,
Move your body joyfully,
Practice self compassion and
I believe that freedom from food and a life without dieting is a possibility for every person and something that is deserved simply for being human.
I believe that dieting for weight loss does not work in the long run and that factors determining body size are complex.
I believe that using a scale as a measure of success and trying to change ones body from a place of shame and self-loathing does not work.
I believe in supporting behavior change for the sake of health and well-being rather than weight control, and that the most effective and sustainable way to create a healthy lifestyle is to move away from focusing on weight, and towards other markers of wellbeing.
I believe that health looks many different shapes, sizes and lifestyles.
I believe that health is not a moral issue and our personal choices about how we chose to pursue our health are not up for judgment.
