Mind-Body Coaching by Dr. Rachel Smartt
We are usually inundated with negative messages about food, weight, and diet. We’re told that we’re will-power weaklings or that we need more control. But often, eating habits are connected to work, money, relationships, family, intimacy, stress and so much more. By working on the areas that are most relevant for you, success is more easily achieved.
My approach is positive and empowering. I combine many of the best strategies from nutrition science and eating psychology for my clients. They consult me on issues relating to weight, binge eating, overeating, body image challenges and various nutrition-related health concerns. I tailor my coaching practices on what’s right for my clients’ bodies and personal styles. As we work together in this way, eating and health become areas of exploration and opportunities for growth and self-improvement. In addition to coaching strategies, I support my clients with nutrition principles that are nourishing, doable, attainable, and sustainable.
I coach person-to-person, in group settings and over the phone. My role as a coach is to assist with the improvement of eating challenges rather than a replacement for psychotherapy, legal counsel, or medical advice.
