Non-Diet Dietitian & Psychotherapist
Rhea applies the principles of Health At Every Size® (HAES®) and the Non-Diet Approach to assist her clients to respect and care for their bodies with food. The non-diet philosophy is one that is weight neutral, assisting an individual to engage in health behaviours regardless of their body weight, shape or size and shifts the focus to wellbeing rather than weight change. Rhea works with individuals and groups to develop their skills and increase their awareness of natural internal eating cues, build body trust and move away from fear-driven, restrictive & rules based eating.
Rhea is also a Psychotherapist and integrates mindfulness & compassion-based counselling therapies into a nutrition counselling setting. She holds a strong interest in mind-body health and as such, primarily sees individuals with food and nutrition concerns including: emotional eating, binge eating, body weight/shape/size pre-occupation & dissatisfaction and disordered eating, along with restrictive dieting tendencies. This approach is also applicable and useful in chronic disease management to improve blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol parameters and in increasing dietary variety.
Rhea works as part of the team at Adelaide Health Care under her business name Mind-Full of Food Nutrition Counselling.
