I am so honoured to be a part of a flourishing and passionate community known as Body Trust® Providers. Made up of multi-disciplinary professionals who have completed a rigorous and intensive training, we are all dedicated to speaking on behalf of body justice and inclusion, while not promoting dieting, specific food philosophies or the promise of weight loss.
We are passionate about helping folks to heal their relationship with food and their body and believe that bodies are not problems that need to be fixed. Together it's time to try differently, not harder.
WHAT IS BODY TRUST?
Body Trust® is an approach to healing body shame and disordered eating based on the clinical work of Hilary Kinavey, MS, LPC and Dana Sturtevant, MS, RD. The approach is designed for multi-disciplinary helping professionals to make a shift from a weight-normative to a weight-inclusive approach to care that includes recognition of what helps address intersectional oppressions that have made “body trust” challenging, unsafe or inaccessible.
Body Trust® is both a radical paradigm shift for helping professionals and a specialized, practical intervention for healing body shame and disordered eating that addresses internalized weight stigma and moves towards resilience and liberation from individual, cultural and systemic body oppression.
