Work with Wendy

Are you overwhelmed and frustrated by food sensitivities? I can help you:

  • Stop constantly worrying about food and get back to doing things you enjoy,
  • Calm your food fears,
  • Heal your limbic system overreaction to food,
  • Figure out the foods you truly need to avoid and reintroduce the rest,
  • Let go of diet restriction lists,
  • Find your “safe” foods,
  • Create a balanced, nourishing meal plan.

How will the workbook help me? Clients are often searching for the root cause of their food sensitivity. The workbook helps clients take a step back, look at the bigger picture and change the patterns that contribute to their reactivity. This work helps clients develop a firm foundation to expand their diet. One client described the workbook as “preparing the soil, before planting the seeds.”

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?  I can help you with any aspect of your diet or relationship with food. Common topics are listed in Living Well on a Restricted Diet.

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 five topic summaries from Calm Your Food Fears & Expand Your Diet. Also, my Public Resources and  Messages to Calm Food Fears are a great place to learn more about my philosophy and approach. Please contact me if you have further questions.

College of Dietitians of Alberta LogoWhy 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.
