    BONUS: All About Intuitive Eating with Dr. Laura Thomas

    BONUS: All About Intuitive Eating with Dr. Laura Thomas

    In this episode, Dr. Laura Thomas and Mimi talk about some of the biggest intuitive eating questions! Laura established the London Centre for Intuitive Eating (LCIE) in 2017 to help support clients who have a difficult relationship with food and their body. She has a passion for delivering inclusive, trauma informed, and person-centred care for all bodies. She draws upon different therapeutic and counseling skills to support her clients in their recovery from disordered eating, chronic dieting, and body dissatisfaction. She also incorporates different health care frameworks into her work, such as Health and Every Size Ⓡ, Intuitive Eating, and Body Image Healing. Much of her work focusses on advocacy and reducing weight-based discrimination within the nutrition profession. Laura takes a collaborative approach to working with clients, recognising that they are the experts of their own bodies and experiences. Her advice and recommendations are not didactic, rather she helps guide and support clients to reconnect with their bodies.

    In January 2019, Laura published her first book with Bluebird Books: Just Eat It: How Intuitive Eating Can Help You Get Your Shit Together Around Food.

    * apologies for the little glitches this time — I’m not sure how that happened but, I hope you’ll listen through! In this episode, Mimi talks with Dr. Veronica Eyo about motherhood and “bouncing back.” Dr. Veronica Eyo, a Bilingual Licensed Clinical Social Worker, is passionate about helping mamas, new and seasoned, navigate the challenges of parenthood. She transitioned her practice into primarily working with mothers after becoming one. Some of the experiences that Dr. Eyo navigated especially in the beginning, led her to seek specialized training in working with moms but especially with mamas of color. Supporting mamas through various walks of life is one of Dr. Eyo’s guiding posts and influenced even her dissertation where she researched the factors that influence the success of student mothers in higher education institutions.
