DIETETIC THERAPY

I believe everyone has the power to heal and live a fulfilling life. 

Binge eating, yo-yo dieting, purging, chewing and spitting, emotional overeating, extreme food rules, food restriction, compulsive exercise, body hatred ...sound familiar?

Breathe ... it's a safe space here

I HAVE DESIGNED DIETETIC THERAPY FOR THOSE WHO WOULD LIKE TO IMPROVE THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH THEMSELVES AND FEEL SAFER, MORE ACCEPTING AND MORE CONNECTED TO THEIR BODY SO THEY CAN TRULY ENJOY LIVING IN IT.

What happens in life is not only stored in the mind but in the body too.


 

THE PROBLEM IS:

TRADITIONAL EATING DISORDER TREATMENT FOCUS' ON THE MIND AND MEAL PLANS AND NEGLECTS TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE NERVOUS SYSTEM AND BODY.




 



I work integratively with mind, body and spirit. I draw on different approaches, strategies and practices to meet you where you at.


 

You are the leader of your journey

Everyone's journey is unique and what you focus on and how long we work together will depend on your personal circumstances.

We may explore psycho-nutrition education, nutritional rehabilitation, meal planning, supplemental requirements, coping skills and practises, embodiment, body image, neuropsychology, hypnotherapy, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, graded exposure, inner child healing, cognitive behavioural therapy, somatic practises and of course focus on building a trusting therapeutic relationship. 

I USE A THREE STAGE MODEL IN MY PRACTICE; 

  • WE BEGIN WITH STABILISATION, SAFETY AND SYMPTOM MANAGEMENT

  • WE MOVE IN DEEP EXPLORATION AND ACCEPTANCE 

  • FINALLY, WE INTEGRATE OR RECONNECT TO THE SELF, OTHERS AND THE WORLD

I generally work in 6/12 session sets which allows us to reflect and evaluate regularly, these can be weekly, alternate weekly, monthly or ad - hoc whichever suits your own journey best. Not everyone feels the needs to have 6/12 sessions but we still practices a three stage model. I also offer single sessions if a one off session is what feels best for you and your circumstances.

I am anti diet culture,
but not anti diet ...

nor am I pro diet.

If you would like to pursue making changes to your physical body, for example pursuing fat loss, this is something that can be explored at a later point. If  your goal is  recovery from a diagnosed eating disorder, disordered eating or to improve your relationship with food, eating and/or your body then any weight or fat loss goals may need to be put on pause, which I understand can be difficult if you have been trying to lose weight for a long period of time.

Nurturance and compassion are the leading values in my practise

It is important that you feel cared for and that you matter, because you do. Dietetic therapy includes;

An initial consultation lasts up to 60 minutes, this allows us to comprehensively explore where you are currently at, what you are struggling with, what you need and how you got here. Following this you receive a full write up with gentle recommendations to explore. *At present all sessions are "email sessions"; an initial consultation involves receiving a list of questions and prompts to send to Rachel; she will then comprehensively read, analyse and respond with guidance, support, questions, resources and any necessary prescriptions.*

Follow up sessions are allocated 50 minutes each; your emails are carefully read and replied to with a therapeutic response, alongside updated nutrition guidance, support, questions and resources. 

Written follow ups are provided after each session, these include resources and gentle goals that we create together.

Personalized nutrition guidance and movement recommendations if appropriate. These may include example plans or E-books.

Journal prompts and meditations aligned with your goals and needs. 

If appropriate to your needs I will give you access to our masterclass' and courses.
