Nutritional psychology is an innovative approach combining nutrition, bodywork and mental health. It’s more than what we choose to eat. This is the way we prepare for each meal, digest and combine nutrients.
Our thoughts, feelings and behaviors are influenced by biochemical processes. They also affect our appetite, sleep patterns, metabolism and energy levels. Disturbances in these pathways relate to stress, anxiety, depression, psychosis, mood swings, whims and addiction. Learning to control compulsive food, excessive hunger, or excessive feeding is the key to a healthy mind and body!
Nutritional therapy perfectly combines the science of nutrition with the psychology of food in a functional way. In this way, everyone can enjoy emotional balance, a lot of energy and long-term health.
My mission is to lead you through an integrated process that combines scientific research, psychology and individual dietary plans depending on age, emotional needs and medical profile. It’s a psychotherapeutic process focused on the relationship with food, diet and body image.
Nutritional therapy will help you to:
- Achieve permanent, sustainable changes in your relationship with food
- Explore and learn about your inner process
- Obtain practical tools that will help you to work on yourself individually
