Nutrition Counselling with Lilydale’s Dietitians
You have been wonderfully made. You are valuable. You were created for a purpose.
BDHH is pleased to have two Accredited Practicing Dietitians who consult from our clinic, offering specialties in different areas – eating disorders, disordered eating, general well-being, diabetes, cardiovascular health, and oncology management. Sarah and Emily have availabilities over the course of the week and are both passionate about people improving their well-being through nutrition counselling. GP referrals are welcome and private health insurance rebates may be available depending on your coverage. Working with a Dietitian is a transformative process and requires full engagement from both practitioner and client. In-person and Telehealth consultations are available, so more people can access the Dietetics service.
Food doesn’t need rules. You weren’t created to control what, how or when you eat. You were created to enjoy all food and nourish yourself in a way that makes you feel good and pursue health.
It is possible to break free from food rules and leave the guilt behind. You can learn to trust your body. You can get off the diet train and enjoy all foods without fear and shame.
Finding peace with your body is learning how to find your worth outside of your body, rather than the number of scales.
It’s providing your body with the nourishment that it needs and finding movement that brings you joy.
It’s realising that you have purpose in the body you are in.
Relfecting on your health as a whole acknowledges that health encompassess all areas of life – physical, mental, social and spiritual health.
Nutrition counselling gently guides reflection on your relationship with food and your body holistically to encourage the unity of all areas for greater well-being.
