What can I expect in a session?

If you haven’t seen a dietitian in the past, or this is your first experience with  a different approach, you might be wondering what happens in a session.

 

Our first session together is about sharing your food and body story. We identify what you would like to achieve in our work. At a 75-minute appointment, I ask questions to guide the session.  We have a conversation focusing on:

 

  • What your history with food and your body has been like for you
  • Your current health and how food fits
  • A plan for our work, to get you closer to the change you want

 

At the end of this session, we will have a  discussion about how much support will be beneficial.

 

For each following session, we spend 50 minutes  together, going over a variety of things:

  • Delving deeper into certain areas of your health, food, eating, or body image story
  • Discussing activities you’ve tried between sessions and the things you’ve noticed
  • Learning about topics related to eating, food, the body, and health
  • Resources including podcasts, books, blogs, or activities that will support your change

Everybody has a different journey and wants different things from the work, so it’s difficult to say how many sessions we will need.

Virtual Sessions

Online nutrition sessions mean you can stay home and get support. No travel, no parking, no shoes required!

Some people feel a little nervous about virtual sessions, that’s understandable, there can be many thoughts…

Will I feel the same connection?……

What if I can’t work with technology?…..

Is the care going to be the same?

  • Secure and easy-to-use telehealth platform, Coviu. No downloads, no logins, click & connect on any device
  • Research shows that care via telehealth is as effective with counseling for behavior change, as in-person care
  • We are in this together, I spend time with you at the start of our first session to ensure you are comfortable with the environment.
