What is Mind-Body-Nutrition Coaching?

What do I do as a certified coach in Mind-Body Nutrition and Dynamic Eating Psychology?

The Coaching training I went through is an unconventional approach developed by the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. It effectively addresses weight concerns, binge eating, overeating, body image challenges, and various nutrition-related health concerns.

I don’t see your eating challenges as a sign that “something is wrong with you and we have to fix it” - they are messages from your body/life. We can explore the personal areas of life that directly impact your food, weight and health.

Often our eating challenges are directly related to work, money, relationships, family, intimacy, life stress, and so much more. By working on the places that are most relevant for YOU, positive changes happen naturally without trying too hard or using willpower.

I look to support you with coaching strategies and nutrition principles that are nourishing, doable, sustainable, and that really works.

How is my approach different to everything else you've already tried?

For far too long, we’ve been bombarded by negative messages about food, weight, and diet. The media and society tell us that we don't have enough willpower, we aren't committed enough, or that we need more control - just try harder, and get serious. The majority of nutrition experts promote conflicting advice.

We are all confused about what to eat, and how to have a happy relationship with food and a healthy metabolism.

In my professional practice, I combine many of the best strategies from nutrition science and eating psychology. By eliminating all the rules, I focus on what’s right for YOUR body and your lifestyle. As we work together in this way, eating and health issues become a place of exploration. Instead of seeing such challenges as the enemy to suppress, they become opportunities for growth and self-improvement.

I help clients reach their highest goals not by strategies that punish, but through strategies that nourish you as a whole person.

About my training

I trained at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, the world’s leading school in Nutritional Psychology, where I received my certification in Mind Body Nutrition and Dynamic Eating Psychology.

I now have powerful new tools and protocols that enable me to work with weight issues, body image challenges, overeating, binge eating, and various nutrition-related health concerns, such as digestion, fatigue, mood, immunity, and more.

My work combines the fields of Dynamic Eating Psychology and Mind Body Nutrition and my past training in Functional Nutrition. In my coaching, I use a combination of practical coaching techniques, results-oriented psychology, clinical nutrition, body-centred practices, mind-body science, and a positive and compassionate approach to challenges with food and health.

What is Dynamic Eating Psychology?

Dynamic Eating Psychology offers a positive, empowering, and transformational approach to helping people with eating challenges, designed for anyone who eats. Each of us has a unique, fascinating, and ever-changing relationship with food. Why do YOU eat what you eat, the way you eat it? What's behind your food behaviours?

Dynamic Eating Psychology sees our challenges with eating, weight, and health not as an indication that we’re broken but as a beautiful opportunity to grow, evolve and discover more about ourselves.

Our relationship with food has important lessons to teach us if we choose to listen. And it recognizes that our challenges with eating, weight, and health are intimately connected to other primary life dimensions – relationship, family, work, sexuality, our search for meaning and fulfilment, and so much more.

What is Mind-Body Nutrition?

Mind-Body Nutrition is an exciting and timely new field that advances the practice of clinical nutrition by exploring the psychophysiology of how thoughts, feelings and beliefs impact nutritional metabolism and health. It goes FAR beyond physical nutrition by focusing on the fascinating connections between the brain, body, and behaviour.

Simply put, what we eat is only half of the story of good nutrition. The other half is who we are as eaters. Mind Body Nutrition reveals how stress physiology, the relaxation response, breathing, awareness, pleasure, meal timing, and much more profoundly influence digestion and calorie burning.

And it offers practical and simple strategies for the most commonly seen eating challenges and health issues of our times.

So that's it!
