What is Meal Support Coaching?

Meal support coaching is about sitting down to a meal or snack with my client and giving them the emotional support they require to move forward in their recovery.

Emotional support can be defined as giving clients encouragement and reassurance and helping them cope with their anxiety and fears about eating. During the meal I help encourage my clients by highlighting their eating successes and give reassurance by emphasizing the physical and psychological benefits of re-nourishment. By doing this, it helps to lower their anxiety level by listening to them express their fears, distracting them with “healthy” conversation, and promoting relaxation techniques during the meal.

Meal support coaching helps my clients build vital eating skills so they can become competent, and confident eaters again so they can enjoy their lives to the fullest without the unhealthy preoccupation with eating.
