Disordered Eating

I offer nutrition counselling to support recovery from:

  • Anorexia Nervosa
  • Bulimia Nervosa
  • Overeating
  • Food anxiety
  • Orthorexia
  • Food Refusal and Avoidant Eating

 

Nutrition interventions are an essential part of treatment of an individual with an eating disorder. I have been working with people with eating disorders for 16 years, and use the most up to date research, my experience and positive attitude to move my clients to a better place with food and eating.

Each of my clients is unique with their own struggles. My goal is to help clients lose the fear and anxiety with eating, and to move towards becoming more confident with food.

Traditionally, seeing a registered dietitian only involved the provision of a standardised meal plan, weight and height measurements, perhaps even calorie targets and exchanges.

Over the last number of years nutrition for disordered eating has evolved into nutrition therapy. The initial goal is to ensure that you are medically safe, followed by addressing the thoughts and feelings that are connected to your relationship with food and body.

  • no judgement
  • providing some structure to remove confusion and anxiety
  • making sense of your distorted myths about food
  • the fascinating science behind how food nourishes your mind and body
  • helping you tune in to your body and it’s needs

 

What my clients say:

“Thank you so so much this is so helpful , the new snack ideas are especially great! I finally feel so ready to completely commit 100% to recovery and get my life back! I hope this motivation continues as it’s so freeing! Again thank you so much for all your help you are a huge element in my full recovery you have no idea 🙂 ”

 

“Your help is great Sarah and I honestly know I couldn’t do this without you! Thank you. I just needed someone to talk to, get my anxieties out and wouldn’t judge me”

 

“It was 7 weeks yesterday since I last used laxatives, and over the past week I have seen a massive improvement in bloating and swelling. I am also not craving foods that I don’t want to eat, and I am not thinking much about food as much unless I am hungry and I really feel able to just eat as much as I want and stop.”

 

“I am feeling a lot less stressed around food and feeling a lot more in control, which feels ironic when so much of my restricting was about control. I just cant believe it, I feel like I am eating proper food”
