Hi there!! My name is Maddie (she/her) and I am a registered Nutritionist, educator and student therapist from a little beach town in south west Australia. I am the founder of Messy Health which has grown from an Instagram account where I share my tips and tricks on nutrition, intuitive eating, binge eating, and more, to a private practice and online school!
If you are interested, I have a bachelor of food and nutrition science, currently undertaking a master of counselling and will be starting my PhD next year. I have worked in the Australian and American media as a nutrition advisor, and as a researcher in gut health! I currently work clinically and facilitate our food therapy program with my amazing clients.
Messy Health is a company dedicated to creating an educational space for those working on their mental health, healing their relationship with food, feeling peaceful about their body, and taking back joy and pleasure in their life. Through my journey of developing peace around food and my body, coupled with my education in nutrition, food science, and psychotherapy, I have the knowledge and understanding to help facilitate healing around food, body image, the body, and how they all intersect.
Although the majority of my academic training is in nutrition and food science, I am very passionate about sexual health. sex positivity, body image, relational health, trauma and addiction, and all aspects of mental health and I plan to continue exploring these areas while studying mental health counselling. I practice through a feminist, social justice, Health At Every Size lens and hold inclusivity and accessibility as a top priority.
