My Philosophy of Care

My work as an eating disorder dietitian is informed by treatment models such as FBT and CBT-E. I'm trauma-informed and bring a non-judgmental and individualised approach to every client. I use the Plate-by Plate Approach to scaffold my clients' eating during recovery and I follow the RAVES model to support my clients to return to normal, intuitive eating. Excluding clients where low body weight or weight loss is a concern, my approach is weight-neutral. I address someone's concern about their weight by exploring what's driving that concern, rather than setting a weight loss goal. For example, if someone wants to lose weight to feel better about their body, we work on ways to improve their body image directly. I understand that the relationship between weight and health isn't straightforward, and people of all shapes and sizes deserve respect and support to engage in healthy behaviours if they want to. I provide nutrition education in line with the principles of the Non-Diet Approach. My clients learn to accept and embrace all foods, trust their body to guide their eating, explore enjoyable movement, and optimise their nutrition without sacrificing the enjoyment of food and eating.

About Me & My Practice

I’m a non-diet dietitian and the owner of Diet-Free Me. I live in the Fremantle area of Perth with my co-parent and two little kiddos. I’m a member of the LGBTQI+ community and I identify as a small-fat person. I also have ADHD, and I have a special interest in supporting neurodivergent clients. My non-diet journey: For most of my teens and early 20s, I was unhappy with my weight. While I never followed any of the popular diets, I definitely had a diet mindset and this lead to some unhealthy eating and exercise behaviours. As a newly graduated dietitian, my mantra was “It’s not dieting, it’s just healthy eating” but (spoiler alert) it actually was dieting! What I observed with myself and my clients was that losing weight seems so easy in theory (“Eat less, move more”), but much harder in real life, and keeping the weight off was even harder. I now understand the reason for this, and it’s not to do with lack of willpower! The truth is that dieting is like fighting a losing battle. But you don’t have to keep fighting. There’s another option, one that can lead you down a path to feeling better about your body and your eating regardless of what the number on the scales says. I chose that path almost 10 years ago and I’ve never looked back.
