We are Sinéad and Shauna, two Intuitive Eating Counsellors who have healed our own relationships with food and body despite years of dieting, obsessing over food and body, and experiencing disordered eating. We have six children between us and are passionate about sharing the Intuitive Eating Message with parents and caregivers to help you set your children up for a healthy relationship with food and body. 

A little bit about who we are…

Hi, I’m Sinéad Crowe

An Intuitive Eating Counsellor, Nutritional Therapist, and Perinatal Mental Health Clinical Nurse Specialist. I was a lifelong dieter and struggled with binge eating for over 20 years, which caused me guilt and shame. At one point, I even imposed rigid food rules on my older children due to my extreme habits.

I’ve successfully transformed my own relationship with food and body, and I now raise my younger children as intuitive eaters. In 2020, my sister and I co-founded @intuitive.eating.ireland on Instagram to empower others who may be using food to cope with their own challenges.

Having found my path to freedom, I am passionate about guiding people towards liberation from disordered eating patterns and helping them embrace a more peaceful and mindful approach to food and life.

Hi, I’m Shauna Gibson

An Intuitive Eating Counsellor and Eating Psychology Coach with expertise in treating Eating Disorders and eating-related issues. In my late teenage years, I started dieting and even worked as a Slimming Consultant for some time. However, I became disillusioned with the industry and found my true passion in eating psychology. Through studying with various eating psychology experts worldwide, I now embrace a weight-neutral approach, advocating for health and well-being through intuitive eating.

I’m a proud mother of two children, and I’m incredibly passionate about assisting parents on their journey to raise intuitive eaters. Drawing from my personal experiences and expertise, I understand the challenges we face as parents and the importance of fostering a positive and healthy relationship with food and body in our children.
