What is Intuitive Eating Counselling?

Intuitive Eating is a revolutionary approach to eating that encourages you back to bodily trust and finding joy in food, eating and movement.

Intuitive Eating offers you a way out of chronic dieting, fear of food and negative body image. By exploring your food and body beliefs, diet rules and food fears, we hold space for the things that feel hard and you find new ways to experience your body. When the need to diet comes up, you can understand it more deeply and honour what it is that’s really going on for you.

Simone trained with Elyse Resche and Evelyn Tribole, the original Intuitive Eating professionals. She is on the member directory of Intuitive Eating counsellors.

One to one online nutrition support

Nutrition support is available for a range of conditions across the lifespan.

Sometimes nutrition support is integrated into your package if it’s relevant to your circumstances. Sometimes though, you need specific help with something.

What to expect?

We’ll do an assessment of relevant background information, for example medical history, medication, hereditary factors, lifestyle and environmental circumstances (sleep, stress, physical activity), any blood tests results and a symptom questionnaire. The emphasis will be on understanding your circumstances and making changes based on preferences, sustainable behaviours and evidence. We can talk about nutrition education and meal planning for recovery and/or symptom management, for example nutrition for improving inflammation or mental health.

Nutrition counselling is available for the following conditions/circumstances:

  • Eating and physical activity for cardiovascular health (including clients who have a diagnosis of heart disease)
  • Eating well with cancer including weight concerns, osteoporosis/bone health and maintaining muscle
  • Eating disorders and disordered eating – managing recovery eating
  • Pregnancy nutrition including advocacy and support for higher BMI women in maternity services
  • Concerns about blood sugar and Diabetes Type II
  • Arthritis and gout
  • Chronic fatigue, ME
  • Hypothyroid and Graves disease
  • Plant-based eating and sustainability/ethical concerns
  • Poly-cystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)

Specialist nutrition and psychological support

Looking to the past, we’ll make sense of the here and now, to plot a way forward.

I offer a unique integrated approach to eating disorder recovery that blends nutrition and psychological support into one package. With this approach we can tackle the broad themes and explicit issues that might be related to food, nutrition, eating or emotions.

ONLINE SUPPORT

We meet over Zoom and initially weekly, with between session support in the client portal and homework to do. Clients with disordered eating can expect to be in therapy for at least 20 sessions over a period of up to six months. This is because  we begin with weekly contact and then as therapy progresses you extend the time between sessions to practice implementing change with gradually reducing support, until you feel confident.

You do not need to have been diagnosed with an eating disorder. Self-identifying as having issues with food is enough. Likewise, if you have competing issues around mental health and the body, for example to do with identity or historical trauma, we can address these as they arise.

You can expect to do an assessment of current symptoms and a screen for risk, as I cannot work with people who are in an active phase of their eating disorder (where current binge/purge is occurring) or those at a very low BMI. We can develop a meal plan for recovery and work on implementing it to get you physically well whilst we address the factors underlying the problems and protection from relapse.

Common eating issues include:

  • Restriction
  • Chronic dieting
  • Latent bulimia
  • Anorexia-bulimia subtype
  • Binge eating
  • Night eating
  • Orthorexia/clean eating
  • Binge/restrict
