What can I expect from the non-diet approach?

There are many differences when looking at dieting vs non-diet approach. In practice, the non-diet approach is quite different to a traditional weight loss counselling session. Weight loss would usually involve weighing your body, keeping strict food intake diaries, counting calories and setting out rules of “good” and “bad” foods.

Instead, the non-diet approach is much more flexible. I will hold space for you to explore  your hunger cues, which are different for everyone. We will discuss diet culture and how it skews our view of health and well-being. I will introduce you to intuitive eating skills while you learn how to listen to your innate hunger and ultimately honour it.

When you truly reach a place of honouring your hunger, deliberate food deprivation can become a thing of the past.
