Helping you find calm with food

Welcome! We're so glad you've found us.

Hopefully, this is the start of your journey toward finally breaking free from the power that food has over you. We do things a bit (a lot!) differently here. We're a specialist practice in Sutherland Shire, Sydney, offering compassionate and collaborative eating disorder treatment, plus treatment for other eating behaviour concerns (like binge or emotional eating) using a non-diet approach. If you aspire to a life of just eating 'normally' again, you're in the right place. Read on 🙂

Are you a Non-Diet/ HAES aligned health professional?

I'm looking for you! Please contact Emma re locum/ contracting opportunities, or if you're already in private practice, I would love to refer to you. I also organise a monthly HAES practitioner meetup and would love to have you there.

Individual Dietitian Consults

Sutherland Shire Clinic

The number 1 reason people tell me that they held off on seeing a dietitian for their eating concerns is the feeling that ‘I already know what I should be eating’. And you know, I bet you’re right! I’ve never met someone with an eating disorder or other food & body concerns who didn’t have excellent nutrition knowledge. But because ‘nutrition is a science, and eating is a behaviour’ (actually a really complex set of many intertwined behaviours!) I focus on the ‘why’ & ‘how’ of eating.

We’ll work on improving your relationship with food: breaking down unhelpful food rules; building your confidence in making your own food decisions; and taking the guilt out of nourishing your body.

What Health Issues Can We Help With?

We're a specialist practice, offering 'non-diet' (i.e. not weight focused) nutrition and body image counselling, eating disorder treatment, and related group programs. If unsure whether we can help you, feel free to phone and ask.
Anorexia and Bulimia Nervosa

Medically stable adults and adolescents seen. Maudsley Family based Treatment offered.

Maybe you're not sure whether you actually have an eating disorder, or whether you're ready to get treatment? We can help you work out whether you're ready, what outpatient treatment options could suit you (check out our support group here), and put you in the drivers' seat.

It's never too early or late to get help.

Parents are welcome to phone & enquire about options for your child/ young adult.

Emotional & Binge Eating

Are there foods that you just can't keep in the house? Do you eat in secret, or feel ashamed about how much you eat?

We'll teach you how to take back the control that food has over you.

Get individual nutrition counselling, or you might want to join our Overcoming Binge & Emotional Eating group program.

Weight Concern & Body Image

FACT: Most people seeing a dietitian want to lose weight. BUT: dieting increases risk of chronic disease and makes most people heavier over time. There IS an alternative to yo-yo dieting misery!

We do not offer a weight control service; what we do offer is the Non-Diet approach, which is better supported by research for achieving long-term health improvement. This takes the focus off weight (which is mostly out of our control) and puts it on eating behaviours (eg mindful eating) & body image- which we CAN control and improve.

You deserve a life of enjoying food and feeling comfortable in your skin!

Want to learn more about us and our approach?

At first glance, most people think the idea of 'not dieting' sounds great! But it's hard to know what this might actually look like when you, and everyone around you, have dieted off and on for as long as you can remember.

Our free 'Intro to Non-Diet Nutrition' email course is the perfect way to get an insight into what we do, and how we do it. It's also a great way to see whether you like our approach, if you're considering booking in with us or joining a group program.

Over the next few weeks, you'll get a series of emails explaining a core Non-Diet principle, with some actionable steps that you can implement right away.

From time to time (about once/month), you'll also receive updates about new blog articles, plus early access for group program registration.
