Health Professionals and Students
Looking to learn more about philosophies such as mindful & intuitive eating, HAES (r), weight inclusive practices, body acceptance and non-diet advice? You have come to the right place.
Diet culture and the anti-fat attitudes that continue to be perpetuated both in our culture and in medicine make it a challenge to help clients understand that there are other ways to feel happy and improve wellbeing.
The challenges are increased when we feel isolated and without the support of colleagues, professional orders or any education in traditional school training.
Whether you are looking to connect with like-minded professionals or hoping to expand your knowledge in these areas, there are many communities of support out there for you!
Pivoting from Weight to Wellbeing Online School
Sadly, there is still very little time dedicated to teaching intuitive eating, body image, and weight inclusive counselling skills in dietetic programs. Many dietitians (both new and experienced) are still unaware that there is an alternative to the weight-centric nutrition talk!
I put the knowledge I have learnt into easy to understand, affordable webinars. Generally, each webinar is a 2-hour presentation where you will hear from an experienced dietitian (either myself or an esteemed colleague) on a nutrition topic in which they specialize (example, diabetes, eating disorders, picky eating, sports nutrition, etc) followed by a guided discussion, Q & A or panel discussion.
I hope you consider joining my Facebook Group Mindful Movement and Mindful Eating Support Group
This Facebook group is a non-judgemental community where you are encouraged to ask questions to peers, start meaningful discussions and share non-diet resources. Support is vital when pivoting your business from the traditional weight loss and diet based advice to one that is weight inclusive and encouraging mindful movement and mindful eating.
Joining this group will keep you informed of opportunities to learn either from myself or others in the HAES community via webinars, blogs, podcasts, books, and much more. This is also a place to share and promote the projects YOU are working on. In my experience, there is no online community more helpful in spreading the word about weight neutral, HAES, mindful/intuitive eating projects as like-minded peers. Join the Facebook group now!
Look to collaborate?
Are you a student or a new professional?
I am always excited to collaborate on a blog article either for my own site or for Huffington Post Canada’s blog. Shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or use this the button below to send me a message through my website if you’d like to chat about these opportunities.
If you are looking for support with case consultation with a client, looking for someone to review your website copy or handout for weight inclusive language or even just have general questions about the HAES (r) or Anti-Diet movement, I do offer supervision.
