Food represents more than just fuel for the body systems; it is social, cultural, emotional and offers a way for friends and families to connect. Let’s celebrate and savour good food and friends and eating together.
Approach to Counseling: “My counselling approach is rooted in a combination of expertise, experience, trustworthiness, and empathy. I understand the unique challenges that individuals face when it comes to their relationship with food. Many of my clients come to me with feelings of frustration, a loss of control around food, struggles with eating habits, and overwhelming guilt.
My empathetic and understanding nature allows me to connect with your feelings and experiences on a deeper level. I know that addressing issues related to food and eating habits is not just about fueling your body; it’s also about factoring in the emotional, social, sensory and physical aspects at play. I’m here to support you, help you with gaining control, and help free yourself from the uncomfortable feelings of guilt.
My experience in working with a variety of clients has equipped me with the insights and strategies needed to help navigate these complex emotions and behaviours. I approach our sessions with a high level of trustworthiness, creating a safe, confidential space where you can open up without fear of judgment.
Together, we’ll work towards a healthier, more varied eating plan, incorporating a balanced approach to food and nutrition, plus a more positive relationship with food, ultimately empowering you to live a fulfilling and nourishing life.”

“The first wealth is health” – Ralph Waldo Emerson. I love this quote as it emphasizes the idea that good health is the most valuable asset a person can possess. Without good health, it can be challenging to enjoy and pursue other aspects of life, including wealth and success. It underscores the fundamental importance of taking care of one’s physical and mental well-being as a foundation for a fulfilling and prosperous life.
