What is Intuitive Eating Therapy?
Intuitive eating therapy with our Dietitian focuses on helping individuals develop a healthy relationship with food and their bodies. It’s based on the principle of intuitive eating, which encourages individuals to listen to their bodies’ hunger and fullness cues and to eat in response to those cues, rather than following strict diets or food rules.
Our Dietitian works with individuals to help them understand and implement the principles of intuitive eating, and can provide guidance and support as they work to break free from dieting and develop a more positive relationship with food and their body.
What’s involved in Intuitive Eating Therapy?
→ Understanding the principles: Intuitive eating is a complex concept that can be difficult to understand and implement without guidance. Our Dietitian can help individuals understand the principles of intuitive eating and how to apply them in their daily lives.
→ Breaking free from dieting: Dieting can be deeply ingrained in an individual’s mindset, and it can be challenging to break free from restrictive thinking and behaviours. Our Dietitian can provide support and guidance as an individual works to let go of dieting and develop a more positive relationship with food.
→ Addressing any health concerns: A dietitian can also help individuals to address any health concerns they may have and ensure that their diet is meeting their nutritional needs.
→ Identifying and addressing underlying issues: Intuitive eating therapy can help individuals identify and address any underlying psychological or emotional issues that may be driving disordered eating behaviours. Our Dietitian can provide support and guidance as individuals work to address these issues.
→ Helping to build a sustainable and healthy relationship with food: Intuitive eating therapy with a dietitian can help individuals develop a more positive and sustainable relationship with food, which can lead to improved physical and mental health in the long term.
