Intuitive Eating Workshop

Intuitive Eating.png

Intuitive eating is a non-diet approach to eating that focuses on tuning in to your body's cues to determine what, when, and how much to eat. 

Join Katie Haneke, Registered Dietitian, in exploring the principles of intuitive eating and how embracing these principles can help to encourage a positive relationship with food. This workshop is open to anyone. 

Please note that this workshop may not appropriate for those who are actively struggling with an eating disorder.

If you have any questions about the workshop or need assistance in determining whether it would be a good fit for you to attend, please contact the facilitator directly at khanekerd@gmail.com.

About Katie Haneke

Katie Haneke is a Registered Dietitian working at the Grand River Community Health Centre (GRCHC) in Brantford. Katie completed both her Bachelor's degree in Applied Human Nutrition and a combined Master's and dietetic internship program through the University of Guelph. She has experience working in long-term care, but her true passion is community nutrition.

In her time at GRCHC, Katie noticed the lack of support in the Brantford community for clients struggling with an eating disorder, which lead her to seek out training to help address this gap. Katie has completed two online courses designed specifically for dietitians on supporting individuals with an eating disorder, which inspired her to seek out opportunities to focus her work more in this area. Katie seeks to provide compassionate, client centred care with the ultimate goal of helping clients repair their relationship with food.

Join us to learn how to incorporate mindfulness into your life! 

Research has shown that mindfulness has tangible, long-lasting benefits for both mind and body, including decreased stress, improved concentration, increased resilience, improved general health and decreased symptoms of depression. 

In the sessions we'll cover:

- Dealing with difficult emotions
- Effective mindfulness practices
- The science of mindfulness
- How to cultivate a home practice
- Plenty of time for discussion and questions

This series is open to everyone! You do not need to be struggling with an eating disorder or body image issue to join and no experience with mindfulness is required.
