We're on a mission
Find the 'Sweet Spot'
We live in a world of all or nothing and often feel stuck between dieting and over eating/binge eating (aka yo-yo dieting). However, there’s actually another option, and that’s what we focus on, finding the “sweet spot” between restriction and feeling out of control (aka food freedom)
What this means is ...
Why we take this approach?
Shifting the focus away from weight (something we can’t control) and onto behaviours, thoughts and feelings (things we can control) empowers us.
It shifts the blame away from us and gives us space and permission to finally build body trust, respect our body and make looking after ourselves something we WANT to do rather than something we HAVE to do.
If there’s one thing I’ve learnt from my ten years working as a Dietitian – it’s that having a body in this appearance-obsessed world is complicated, and everyone has a different story. In fact, I’ve lost count of how many clients have shed tears in front of me while expressing their body distress.
Decades spent counting every calorie, considering every step and comparing every mouthful, while riddled with guilt, shame, and anxiety for eating the “wrong” thing or not moving their body “enough” – it’s exhausting!

HEY, I'M ERIN
Accredited Practicing Dietitian | Intuitive Eating Counsellor | Certified Eating Disorder Clinician
AKA- A food and body image counsellor
Like most Dietitians, I started my career providing weight loss advice to “improve people’s health”, but it didn’t take long for me to realise this approach created more problems than solutions. I’ve spent years unlearning my traditional weight-centred education and now adopt a weight-inclusive, HAES & non-diet approach.
I’m on a mission to free people from body hate, unrelenting food standards, and the constant diet culture narratives. Drawing on my lived experience, counselling skills and intuitive eating principles, I help my clients regain control over food, accept their bodies, and free their minds of relentless food and body concerns, so they can focus on more important things in life.
NOT SURE WHAT YOU NEED?
Sometimes we know we want to change, but have no idea where to start.
In this complimentary 15 min zoom call let me know what’s going on for you, I’ll explain how I can support you and see if I’m the best person to support you right now.
We believe our clients already hold many of the answers; our job is to listen, validate and guide them to these answers. Not to tell them what to do, or set them up for failure with untenable weight loss Goals.

have a question?
A non-diet dietitian focuses on providing long term, sustainable health changes while helping people accept the body they’re in. They use a client centred approach and provide a safe space to help empower their clients to navigate diet culture, advocate for themselves and repair their relationship with food, their mind and body.
All Dietitian’s are nutritionists, however not all nutritionists are dietitian’s. Dietitian’s have completed a minimum four years study and require ongoing education to remain accredited. Nutritionists have less regulations and anyone can call themselves a nutritionist.
As an Accredited Practising Dietitian & Credentialed Eating Disorder Dietitian with ten years of experience in public, community and private health I’ve helped support people with many different chronic illnesses. While I specialise in the treatment of Binge Eating Disorder, I also work with adults to help manage Atypical Anorexia Nervosa, Pre-diabetes, Type 1 & Type 2 diabetes, Cardiovascular disease & Hypertension, High Cholesterol, Irritable bowel syndrome & Low FODMAP diet, Constipation (other gut-related issues), and General healthy eating advice
Great question! When I first started working as a Dietitian I was very weight focused, meaning a lot of the recommendations I made tied back to weight loss. After seeing first hand the weight stigma this created and delving into the research around the limited success of weight loss about 5 years ago I decided to adopt a non-diet, weight inclusive approach instead. This means I don’t weigh my clients, or focus on their weight (because this is not something we can control), we can however control our behaviours like what we eat, how we move, how we look after our mental health, our sleep, our social connections etc. and that’s what I focus on with my clients.
