Intuitive eating skills for athletes and active people
Every day we are bombarded with social pressures of physical image, behaviour and even professional choices!
Athletes have the added pressures of performance, competition and body image expectations.
Perfectionism is sometimes masked as personal excellence, and strict rules start to dictate our lives:
chronic dieting, food group eliminations, calorie counting, carbohydrate counting, eating “clean” and many other strategies.
More often than not, such impositions are only limiting progress
and seriously impacting both physical and mental health, taking us further from our sporting goals.
When we are in tune with our body needs, when we honour our internal cues of hunger and satiety, when we get satisfaction out of the food we eat and when we treat our body with respect, then we are able to make choices that work in our favour. We eat what we need to keep our bodies strong, support the training load, and take us to new heights.
There is no guilt. No shame. No feeling out of control.
ARE YOU READY FOR A NEW PERSPECTIVE?
is a series of workshops and educational sessions that provides the support and guidance to teach you the
empowering skills of intuitive eating
with a focus on athletes and active people's perspectives.
The aim of this workshop series is to help active people who have struggled with eating rules and restrictions in the past foster a better relationship with food. This is specially for you if:
- Food is a way of dealing with emotions or stress
- Eating is associated with guilt and anxiety
- You alternate between bingeing and restricting
- Exercise is used to counterbalance foods eaten
- Food is seen as "good" or "bad"
Together we will explore an alternative to diets and restrictive eating patterns, and develop valuable intuitive eating skills. As a result, this program will help you create more trust in your internal signals and make decisions about eating choices that will honour your hunger, health and training requirements.
ARE YOU AN INTUITIVE EATER? TAKE THE QUIZ!
This program is about cultivating a fresh perspective on your health and wellbeing, and providing the tools and resources you need to take practical and inspired action to support your athletic endeavours.
We will challenge pre-conceived ideas and old habits.
We will be there to support and motivate you along this journey.
IF YOU ARE READY TO DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY,
WE CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU!
No food guilt.
No food shame.

I am afraid that if I stop dieting, I will lose control of my eating.
You're not alone. Many people feel like you, and this is a characteristic of the diet mentality. By learning to listen to your internal cues of hunger and satiety, and reducing the emotional importance of food, you will feel much more satisfied with your food choices.

A little about me
Brazil-born and Tasmania-based, I’m a tropical soul with a passion for exploration. Thriving off fresh perspectives, varied routine and adventure, I love questioning what is arbitrary and helping people make choices that align with what they truly want.
My interest in nutrition and dietetics has been ever-evolving and iterative, and fused with a keen love of sports and stretching my body and mind to their limits.
What began as a youthful search for the mythic 'perfect diet’ found within glossy magazine pages, quickly morphed into a life-long learning affair with what we eat and how it can transform our lives in powerful ways. Not only did I find it to be the foundation on which a healthy body could thrive, but I realised how deeply it was connected with our psychology, motivation and mindset.
To me, understanding nutrition has unlocked a sense of autonomy, possibility and excitement, as I fuel myself with everything I need to live fully and freely.
Today, I feel incredibly grateful to work with clients from all walks of life, supporting them to shift their perspective and grow their potential through holistic health and wellbeing.
I have always been a passionate learner and have amassed multiple formal qualifications in the field, as well as private practice experience spanning from 2010 to present. I am an Accredited Practising Dietitian & Sports Dietitian, with a Bachelor of Biological Sciences, a Masters of Nutrition and Dietetics and a Postgraduate Diploma in Sports Nutrition through the International Olympic Committee.
Inspired by how my current work powerfully intertwines with mental health, I’m currently studying a Bachelor in Psychology. I fuse my varied professional expertise and experiences in a holistic approach that blends nutritional science, dietetics, mindset and coaching.
