Ep 17 - Tracy Brown
Tracy Brown on attunement, somatic-based nutrition therapy, trauma and moving away from shame through connecting with the body's wisdom. PLUS a NEW BONUS meditation!
Please join me as I speak with the passionate Tracy Brown of Florida, USA. Tracy is a registered dietitian, eating disorder specialist, body image and attuned eating coach who also specialises in the unique practice of somatic nutrition therapy.
Here Tracy shares:
The bigger scope; leading clients to trust their bodies for life
Importance of attunement and mindful presence in nutritional practice
Being comfortable with mess; the art of knowing when to use cognitive and counselling/mindful skills
Client journey and recovery; importance of patience, non-judgment, compassion,helping them feel seen and heard
Diet-culture in practice; using it to reprogramme and show clients they have a power and choice – they are in charge!
Trauma; introduction to Big T’s and Little T’s
An introduction to somatic nutrition therapy; things getting stuck in the nervous system - a transformation of neural pathways, not just strategies for coping
Recognising client needs and what they are ready for; making their choices okay for them by building safety
Shame; how it arrives, recognising it, sitting with it and bringing it out in the open for healing
Her new project!
BONUS - leads us in a meditation to help us find our centre and connect with our innate sense of worthiness
