Laura Cherry - specialist in adult and adolescent eating disorders
Therapeutic eating disorder dietitian - bringing balance back to eating.
Nutrition therapy is an integral part of the eating disorder (ED) treatment and recovery process. The primary role of nutrition therapy is to assist patients to normalise their eating patterns.
Normalised eating encompasses:
- Eating adequately to meet the body’s daily nutritional needs
- A balanced and sustainable relationship with food, free from negative or distorted thoughts about oneself
- Listening to and trusting your body’s internal cues to determine hunger and fullness.
If you or your service would benefit from a truly therapeutic approach please contact me.
