About me:

Hey, I’m Emma!

Hey there! I’m Emma, an Accredited Practising Dietitian all about nourishing your body and mind with a sprinkle of fun and oodles of compassion. My mission? To make food less complicated and stressful, bring back the joys of eating and strengthen your body image or ease the pain you might be experiencing.

Food is 100% my love language and I would probably fight someone for any type of biscuit covered in chocolate. I have a slight obsession with dogs and my favourite thing to do is travel and experience all the cultural differences (including the foods of course).

So, if you’re seeking a dietitian with a fun approach who ultimately wants to help you bring back the joy with nourishing your body without a side of confusion – I might be your match!

What's your favourite podcast?

Ladies, We Need To Talk, Hamish and Andy, Everybody Has A Secret and The Quicky (cause I’m too lazy to watch the news).

Your idea day off?

Finding sunshine, moving my body, connecting with loved ones, OR getting on a plane and seeing the world (spoiler alert: requires more than a day off).

special interests:

  • Kids (5+) and Adolescents & Adults;
  • Eating Disorders, Disordered Eating & Body Image;
  • “Fussy Eaters”;
  • Athletes;
  • Neuro-Affirming Practice;
  • Motivational Work.

I thrive helping people who...

experience disordered eating, eating disorders and a tumultuous relationship with their bodies. I specialise in helping women with a chronic history of dieting who feel a lack of control or total confusion in what and how to eat.

What are your strengths as a therapist?

I have flexibility in sessions, pride myself on actively listening to the client, and weaving sessions to accommodate for your needs. I prefer a visual learning style and getting the client actively involved in participating with ideas and solutions.

What is your general philosophy and approach to helping?

I use a collaborative approach in my therapy and unpack your eating behaviours at a deeper level. I believe YOU are the expert on yourself! I am simply there to assist and guide you to truly living in alignment with your values and your goals.

favourite therapy tools

  • I use a non-diet approach when it comes to my practise and love to embrace a mixture of motivational interviewing techniques, CBT and DBT skills based on the evolving presentations of my clients.
  • I understand there is no one size fits all and strive to adapt and be flexible in my approach – we work as a team!
