NON-DIET NUTRITION COUNSELLING
WHAT I DO
I offer evidence-based nutrition support, Intuitive Eating counselling and traditional counselling, in person or remotely.
Individual sessions or longer programs will help you understand how to cultivate health through personalised nutrition – without the diet mentality. Specialised counselling and ongoing support and is available for eating disorders.
By working with me you will learn to:
Stop dieting forever
Understand the harm of diets and weight-cycling, why it’s almost impossible to sustain that elusive ‘perfect’ weight, and learn how to eat with fear or micromanaging.
Trust yourself around food
Learn how to be peaceful around delicious foods and let go of the anxiety of bingeing, purging or other negative food/eating behaviours.
Move for joy
Enjoy physical activity that makes you feel really good for the sake of doing it, without being compelled by guilt, to manipulate your body or to earn your supper.
Improve body image
Learn how to accept your body, respect it and care for it, even if it’s not the body you see in your dreams. Release yourself from the constant striving for a ‘different’ body without compromising health and wellbeing.
Understand healthy eating
Really understand the science of healthy eating and what it means for you, away from the crazy world of health bloggers, food rules and pseudoscience.
Most diets result in weight regain within 5 years, often more than pre-diet weight
Around 70% of young women engage in disordered eating like restricting and bingeing to control their weight through pressure to be thinner
Fewer than 5% of us can ever achieve the ‘thin ideal’
Over half of all children growing up have dieted, and have body image concerns that continue into adulthood
Since working with you I realised how much of my coping was tied up in food and comfort eating. I’ve found other ways to feel ok now, my anxiety is not in control of me, and my body feels more like home. Life changing!
I wish I’d found you years ago! All that wasted time going round in circles, exercising till I was exhausted and still not happy with my body! Now finally I’m able to enjoy food guilt free without having to run off the calories. I sleep better and I know what to do with those diet
Simone helped me after I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease.She helped me understand how to listen to my body and not fight it. She also saved me hundreds on supplements I didn’t need.
There’s not many counsellors who have your knowledge of nutrition science, who really understand what an eating disorder feels like. You understand what I’m dealing with more than anyone I’ve had treatment from in 20 years.
What can I help you with?
Eating Disorder Counselling
Eating disorder counselling is available online or in person. Benefit from psychological and nutritional support in one place, and ongoing support with a dedicated app. All body sizes, and shapes and a weight-neutral approach.
Our first appointment is usually around 90 minutes. It’s where we get to dig deep into your story and begin to understand just what it is you need. We’ll talk about your history with food, eating, sleep, stress, physical activity and any other relevant health issues. I’ll do a health assessment including if relevant, a nutritional profile. This appointment is your chance to say what your hopes are for our work together and forms the bedrock of how we proceed with a plan.
This appointment takes 45 minutes and is for you address anything you need following on from an initial consultation. This appointment is available to existing clients and includes worksheets, tasks, feedback and brief email support. Follow-ups are best booked in blocks for newer clients who might need more contact time, and can be booked even if you haven’t seen me for a year or so. If things have changed dramatically and you haven’t seen me for some time, consider booking a longer appointment if you feel that updating me might take longer.
