Hello, I am Natalie
I am an Accredited Practising Dietitian based in Perth who is passionate about helping clients to pursue health without dieting. I work with clients to support them in improving their relationship with food, eating and their bodies. I use a non diet approach and understand how difficult navigating the world of health and nutrition can be and that often people have been struggling for years. If that sounds like you then you’ve come to the right place!
My Mission and Philosophy
Food is so much more than just fuel for our bodies. Food brings people together and is meant to be savoured, enjoyed, and shared with loved ones.
Somehow along the way, our approach to food and eating has gotten very complicated and stressful. If you have been feeling this way, then you are not alone. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be this way!
As a Dietitian, I believe that life is too precious to waste time counting calories and worrying about the number on the scale. My mission is to support you to develop sustainable, enjoyable and mindful health practices in order to gain freedom from food struggles.
Rediscover the joy of eating with plenty of room for all of the foods that you love!
How do we achieve this?
At Be Mindful Nutrition, I use the non diet approach which is based on the Health at Every Size (HAES®) and intuitive eating principles. This approach equips you with the skills to nourish your mind, body and soul. Through this process, you’ll find how to reconnect with your body, become more aware of appetite and fullness, improve your relationship with food, rediscover the pleasure of eating and find your own definition of health. This means being able to let go of any food anxiety or guilt and not having to cut out your favourite foods. In other words: no dieting!
Who is it for?
I work with clients who present with the following diet-related concerns:
- Weight or body shape concerns/body shame
- Recovery from chronic and lifelong dieting
- Disordered eating and eating disorders such as binge eating, bulimia nervosa, and anorexia nervosa
- Chronic health conditions (including cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis)
- Diabetes (type 1 and 2)
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
- Intestinal conditions (including irritable bowel syndrome and coeliac disease)
