My Philosophy of Care

I approach my work from a trauma-informed lens. I work with my client's values on the goals they see as important to them. We work at the individual's own pace. I use self-compassion and acceptance commitment therapy within my work. I see the humanity in my clients; I see they are both their bodies and their spirits. I see systems and structures that have existed for far too long have created unequal access to weight-inclusive care. Using a social justice lens and a feminist approach, I aim to work with the individual to navigate the realities of the systemic weight stigma in healthcare whilst being a provider who rejects this paradigm. I know I hold identities associated with oppression and those suffering from oppression. The intersectionality of the work that we do together acknowledges that I may have caused harm, I may cause harm in the future and that my role is to reflect, learn and repair. Creating an open dialogue between myself and the client, the expert on their own body, allows tremendous wisdom to be utilised within and between sessions. Being a HAES® provider allows me to see the whole human within the context of the known and unknown social determinants of health. Health is “NOT THE ABSENCE OF DISEASE”. It allows for providing services for the community that accepts your body exactly as it is -ALL OF IT. My clients must feel seen and heard, and I support them in their healing journey by acknowledging that they may be doing this work despite the dominant culture

About Me & My Practice

I am Ged, and I am so pleased to meet you and belong to an organisation undertaking crucial work. I was fortunate to receive HAES® training as a student in Dietetics. I have lived experience of weight stigma both in my profession and the medical profession. I advocate for my clients daily in helping them to receive appropriate weight-inclusive medical care. I am also co-convenor for the Weight Stigma Social Justice Special Interest Group for the Australia New Zealand Academy for Eating Disorders (ANZEAD). In addition, I supervise colleagues who wish to practice from a weight-inclusive HAES® lens. Outside of work, I am blessed to have four adult children, a grandson and a partner who greatly supports my work. I met my partner on a dance floor many years ago, and we continue to dance at every opportunity. I am originally from Liverpool in the UK and have been calling Australia home for the last ten years. I love beach walks, reading and sharing meals and celebrations with friends and family.
