BHlthSci (Psychology) MSc. (Human Nutrition)
Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor
I am a New Zealand Registered Nutritionist with a passion for helping people resolve their issues with food, eating and body image. My usual clients are either struggling with weight issues and/or eating behaviours (particularly binge eating), are 'recovered but not quite' from an eating disorder, or bariatric patients that have hit a difficult patch post-surgery. If you have a diagnosed eating disorder, or are newly recovered, I can work with you as part of your team, but you will also need to also be seeing a psychologist.
I will put together a personalised program for you that emphasises feeling good throughout the process and will guide you step-by-step towards a healthier and less stressful relationship with food. I am happy to work with people that have special nutrition requirements (e.g. celiac disease, lactose intolerance) or that prefer to be vegetarian or vegan.
If you are in NZ and have Southern Cross health insurance, your sessions may be able to claim rebates for sessions (check if your plan reimburses for sessions with a Registered Nutritionist).
I primarily work online, and am also available for face-to-face sessions in Christchurch a few times a month.
