In this episode I speak with Anne Richardson who is a registered nutritionist who exclusively works with disordered eaters whether they have received a formal diagnosis or not.
She focuses her work more on restriction, so her clients tend to suffer with anorexia, orthorexia and bulimia mostly. She is also currently doing a diploma in cognitive behavioural therapy and this is reflected in her practice which blends nutrition with CBT. Anne mostly work online from her home in Devon.
Anne graciously shares her own personal story with a restrictive eating disorder, how she initially decided to *not* work in the nutrition space nor with people struggling with eating disorders, but eventually ended up doing so when she was looking for a career change.
We talk about the challenges with healing from a restrictive eating disorder, the importance of including nutrition and a nutrition professional as part of the team. Food itself is an ally in recovery and healing and not the enemy that the eating disorder is trying to make it out to be!
I think anyone who is struggling, has been struggling or is caring for someone with a restrictive eating disorder will find some gems to take away from this conversation and Anne’s wisdom and knowledge.
