Hi! My Name is Shauna,

I am an Eating Psychology Coach, specialising in the treatment of Eating Disorders and eating challenges. My journey started as a dieter from a young age, eventually leading me to become a Slimming Consultant for several years. However, my disillusionment with the slimming industry pushed me to seek training in Eating Psychology.

In 2013, I transitioned into private clinical practice in Belfast. Through my experience, I came to the realisation that conventional weight management approaches often fall short and can even be harmful. Instead, I shifted my focus towards a weight-neutral approach that emphasizes health-promoting behaviors, which have proven to lead to more lasting and effective change.

My primary passion lies in Intuitive Eating, an evidence-based, weight-neutral approach. I am deeply committed to this self-care framework that encourages a healthier relationship with food and one’s body.

On a personal level, I have moved away from the world of counting points, syns, and calories. I now embrace a more relaxed attitude towards food and my body. I’ve cultivated a positive relationship with eating and exercise, and I aim to guide my clients toward a similar transformation.

My qualifications are extensive and include training in the treatment of Eating Disorders from the National Centre of Eating Disorders, graduation from the Institute of Psychology of Eating, Integrative Counselling, Advanced Life Coaching, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy), NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Yoga Teacher certification, Athletics NI Running Coach, a BSc, and a Post Graduate Diploma.

Beyond my professional role, I am also a wife, a mother, and an enthusiast of chocolate and peppermint tea. I find joy in participating in parkruns and maintaining a balanced and fulfilling life.

“Excellent. Compassionate, and knowledge of books and quotes and IE shines through. Humility around her time as a SW leader is a huge added value to me as it validates the madness of dieting as a product.”
