How will the workbook help me? Fear is a powerful force. The workbook will help you reflect on where your food fear is coming from and implement proven strategies to minimize it.
The workbook is titled Tame Your Food Fears & Start Living. What do you mean by “start living”? Constantly worrying about food and symptoms can take away from enjoying life. I help clients come to a place where food is a part of their life – but no longer dominating it.
How long does it take to read the articles/videos and complete the workbook? Reading the articles and watching the videos takes 1-2 hours. However, I suggest that clients expect to spend about five hours, so they have time to reflect on their learning.
Do I have to send you my completed workbook? The workbook is your tool for self-discovery. We will discuss your insights, but you do not need to send the workbook to me.
What else will we talk about besides the workbook? The workbook is the starting point. As one client described it, the workbook is “preparing the soil, before planting the seeds.” Our additional discussions depend on your unique needs. Most clients want some guidance for reintroducing food, but there isn’t any pressure to expand your diet. Meal planning and coping with a restricted diet are other potential topics. See Living Well on a Restricted Diet.
What is the typical program timeline?
The typical program timeline is four months. Can this be extended? The timeline is very flexible and will be adjusted based on your needs.
How often can I e-mail you? I encourage clients to e-mail as often as they want. I check messages at least three times per day and respond immediately. E-mail support is a very important part of the program.
Why don’t you list success stories (testimonials) from past clients? My regulatory body, the College of Dietitians of Alberta, does not allow members to include testimonials in their advertising.
How do I know if this program is right for me? It’s a good idea to read the four topic summaries from Tame Your Food Sensitivity Fears & Start Living. Also, my public Tame Food Fears articles and Wendy's Quotes are a great place to learn more about my philosophy and approach. Please contact me if you have further questions.
Why consult a registered dietitian (RD)? Nutrition counselling is offered by a variety of people using different titles. Like all regulated health professionals, dietitians undergo comprehensive and rigorous training, both on the job and in universities. In Canada, a dietitian must be registered with their provincial college, which includes a four-year undergraduate degree at an accredited university, an internship program (usually one year) and college exams. The college protects the public, by ensuring members provide ethical, evidenced-based services and maintain competence through yearly education programs. If clients feel their service did not meet these standards, they have recourse through the college.
Dietitians look beyond fads and gimmicks to deliver reliable, life-changing advice.
