Terreen Stenvers, Credentialed Eating Disorder Clinician, Be Mindful NutritionTerreen Stenvers is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian, a Credentialled Eating Disorder Clinician, and an Accredited Sports dietitian and we are fortunate to have her joining our team at Be Mindful Nutrition. 

She has over 30 years of experience as a dietitian and has worked in a range of settings including private practice as well as elite sporting environments.

Her experience and expertise in working in the sporting arena means she has a deep understanding of the concerns that athletes can face related to food, body image, and sporting performance.

Terreen uses a non diet approach to address eating, health, and weight concerns with her clients.  

In recent years she has undertaken additional training to develop her skills in working with clients who struggle with disordered eating and eating disorders.

We sat down with Terreen to get to know her a bit better

Q: What do you like most about working with clients who are struggling with their relationship with food?
Terreen: Good question! I love seeing my clients breaking the shackles of diet culture and gaining freedom and enjoyment from the food they eat.  I also love it when my clients become more self-compassionate and want to truly nourish their bodies rather than punishing them.

Q: What drew you to becoming a sports dietitian?
Terreen: When I first started working as a dietitian in regional SA, I started participating in triathlons.  I was training a lot at that time and soon began to notice how what I ate affected my training and how I felt day to day.  I decided to do the sports nutrition training for dietitians at The AIS to learn more and there began my passion for helping athletes perform at their best through good nutrition

Q: If you’re not at work – what do you enjoy doing? 

Terreen: I love nature and being outdoors so enjoy walking, hiking and camping. I also really enjoy relaxing activities such as reading and jigsaw puzzles. 

Q: Sweet tooth or savoury?
Terreen: Savoury definitely!  Chips, cheese, crackers…yum
