Melanie works in private practice as well as conducting group therapy workshops.
She specializes in emotional eating behavior and aims to assist clients to break free from their struggle with food and weight. She does this by helping her clients to feel an enhanced sense of self-acceptance and self-worth, enabling them to care for themselves in a nurturing rather than a punitive way.
Melanie works with her clients to explore and understand the emotional reasons for their compulsive eating, and assists them to develop more effective methods of dealing with these emotions. They are then better able to regulate their eating behavior and develop healthy life-style habits.
Melanie encourages her clients to reject dieting, release their guilt and work with their bodies. She has completed intensive one-on-one training with me on my scientific principles and coaching methods.
What our readers say...
"Dear Dr Amanda, Just a quick thank you for sending my parcel. I am totally enjoying reading what you have to say. I am wondering just how many people have 'discovered' you and if they haven't why not? As I mentioned to you briefly the other day, I have been through Fit for Life, Pritikin, Weight Watchers, Too Good To Be True and Tony Ferguson's diets and have eventually put a good deal of what I did lose back on. BUT, and this might seem a bit premature, I am SO EXCITED about starting on your 'diet'. I have never read anywhere (and my husband and I have done a great deal of reading about nutrition and weight loss), anything like you are advocating. I understand fully what you are saying and it all makes so much sense. I have never been excited about losing weight before (it has all been in the too-hard-basket) but I really am enjoying following your guidelines. If ever I am asked who I'd vote for as Australian of the Year I'd have to say you. I truly hope that more and more people 'find' you Amanda and that those who have tried and failed at all the other so-called weight loss "experts" have their lives changed and enhanced by your research and advice. Anyway, so much for the quick note! Thanks again Amanda and I congratulate you on your website. It is most informative and very user-friendly! Warm regards, Kaye Frost-Smith PS I have spent all morning making your Cottage Pie, and from licking the spoon it tastes fantastic!"
