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.
