Testimonials from Food Habits Clients
A few comments from some of my happy clients whom I have helped.
"We needed help with our teenage daughter who was increasingly anxious around food. She was restricting her diet to her idea of 'healthy' choices (e.g. berries and kale), she lost weight, was excessively tired and irratable. After just a couple of sessions with Andrea we noticed a big difference with our daughter. Andrea's gentle, respectful, calm,non-judgmental approach coupled with her teaching of enjoying food made a huge difference to how our daughter views food. The change is actually quite dramatic and we are very grateful to Andrea for her wisdom and assistance"
"My family have been very entertained at having everything on the table at once. Miss C: "Can I really eat pudding first!?" Haha. And she never eats it first. :)
Being able to help ourselves to what else we need when hungry has been good. And makes for much better conversation as we seem to take longer, take our time and talk. I've found it much more relaxing starting off with a blank plate and putting what I wanted on it. Master A seems to be eating more too. I can see their bodies tell them what they need and they just go for it."
"We have totally altered the volume of food we eat and understand the need to eat when we are hungry rather than when the clock says to eat. What we like is that we can enjoy eating out/entertaining and cope with eating while traveling without feeling that need to stick to an unrealistic plan. Thank you for all your ideas - they will certainly remain with us long term."

"What has changed most significantly is my acceptance of where I am and what is right for me at this point in time or as you described "normalising my relationship with food". The best part is being free from having to monitor everything and having a focus on what I should be doing/eating. So, would I recommend you to others? Most definitely, yes."
"I have had the opportunity to help Andrea with catering food for an alfresco wedding feast as well as simpler meals and snacks. It has always been an enjoyable experience, with an easy flow of instructions and ideas. She is very organised, calm and confident in the kitchen and manages to create dishes with ease, that are both delicious and healthy."
"As a father of two very active kids it can be a struggle to find tasty and healthy food that the kids will eat. Andrea has been fantastic, giving me some really great practical advice without making me feel guilty about giving them treats as well. Thanks Andrea!"
