What is included in the IN PERSON/ SKYPE components of the program?

Office or Skype appointments

Stina offers appointments at her Hamilton office or via Skype. She is passionate about helping parents and children develop a healthy relationship with food.

 

Together you will explore what your food philosophy is, how you would like to feel when you sit down to a meal with your family, and what you would like your child’s relationship with food to look like. We will then be able to compare it to what is going on in your family feeding dynamic at the moment, and make a plan for how to bridge the gap between the goal and the current situation. 

 

You will also get a chance to discuss any concerns you have about your child’s nutritional intake and make a plan for how to address any issues. 

Skype play-date

A Skype play date is Simone’s unique, playful way of helping stressed out parents get some one-on-one and tailored eating assistance with their kids. She hops on Skype (with or without my kids) along with a platter of our pre-arranged food list (some preferred foods and some goal foods). You converse in the lead up to the play date so that she can pick a best fit menu for you. Ultimately, the foods are tailored to your child’s preference and your goal foods.

 

During the session Simone keenly observes your child’s approach to foods, in particular how they respond to and how they opt-out of challenging situations. You all have a great time trying out these new foods!

Office, Skype or outdoor appointments

Mel offers a range of options. You can see her via Skype, at her comfortable studio office in Lambton, for a walking or playground appointment at Lambton park or just over the phone! 

 

Mel believes parents shine when they have access to independent/non-judgemental support that is woven with empathy and evidence-based strategy and experience. She helps you identify your family’s strengths so you can use these clues to cross-pollinate the successes you are having into areas you feel frustrated about.

What happens when you book in?

When you click through to book in, you’ll be given the option to book in for ‘Goodbye Stressful Mealtimes’ option 1, 2 or 3, which corresponds to the level of support you wish to engage. 

 

Your first appointment will be with Stina, and she will relay your information to Simone and Mel so you can organise your appointments with them. 

Once you have booked in you will receive an email with a payment link (securely through PayPal), and once you have paid you will receive a confirmation email with a link and password to log in to the online program and you’ll be on your way!
