WHAT I DO
I offer nutritional therapy, 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, IBS, diabetes, general health or dealing with difficult life events.
Amongst other things, 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.
WHY I DON’T SELL DIETS
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 or counselling for other reasons is available online or in person. Benefit from psychological and/or nutritional support in one place, and ongoing support with a dedicated app for food based issues.
I accept English speaking clients in any country, and offer virtual sessions via Skype or another secure platform. Sessions are arranged flexibly to meet your needs and are supported by email contact, resources like activities sheets and an app. It can feel strange at first if you’re new to online talking therapy, but we’ll quickly establish rapport, just like I’m with you, in your room.
In person support is available in Barnstaple, North Devon, UK. Appointments to be made online via the booking system or by email.
