My Philosophy of Care

My approach to health and care is inclusive, feminist and non-judgemental. It is important for me to do no harm, and to always refer clients to the best possible practitioner for them – I don’t consider myself to be the best practitioner for all. Being a HAES practitioner was what motivated me to start coaching in the first place. HAES was crucial in my own recovery, and therefore, it became essential when I trained as a coach, for me to carry the HAES message in my communities - in the UAE and abroad (as a bilingual practitioner, I also practice in French speaking communities) where HAES is very rarely mentioned. HAES care is non-weight centric, and I see so much harm done by weight centric care in my sector. I also find HAES to be an amazing model to guide people towards a better self-care and self-esteem, which are essential to body image work. In 5 years, I have never and will never coach outside of the HAES perspective, as I know it to be the only method for true body acceptance and respect and to free clients from diet culture.

About Me & My Practice

I decided to become a HAES coach after going through my own body image struggles and not finding practitioners that truly could help me in a non-weight centric way, on different levels: food, exercise, mental and emotional health, body satisfaction. I had become very delusioned with the weight-centric “health” model and the horrifying fatphobia my fat friends and family members had to endure, and found in HAES a viable option that (sadly) not enough people knew. I am practicing since 2018 and have supported fat folks in their disordered eating and body image recovery, but also to apply HAES principles to their lives. In the same time, I have advocated for HAES in local ED charities (MEEDA) through their social media content and a podcast, and this allowed me to reach out to many medical practitioners. I am a mom of 2 and also spend my time advocating for HAES in local schools with parents, teens and school staff.

Accessibility Considerations

My office is not wheelchair accessible, but offers ample space for entering and sitting without weight limits. I am the only person in my practice and am very inclusive of all identities.
