Victoria is a Clinical Psychologist, Certified Mind Body Eating Coach, Addiction counsellor and completed her studies in 2012. Prior to this, Victoria did a Master’s degree in research psychology at the University of Cape Town. She has worked in several government psychiatric institutions, including Tara hospital where she practiced in the eating disorder unit.

In 2014, Victoria worked in a rehabilitation centre in Cape Town specialising in alcohol, drug and sugar addiction, and has continued to specialise in in-patient rehabilitation since then.

Victoria has always been very interested in understanding the psychology behind eating and how to work with people and their relationship with food. She has also completed an additional certificate in LCHF through the Nutrition Network in 2020, and is currently in training to become a binge eating specialist. Victoria is a facilitator of groups, workshops and lectures, and her academic work has been published in the Journal of Neurovirology. 

Victoria knows that change is not easy and hopes to help people gain insight into their thought processes, emotions, behaviours and connection with their bodies in order to improve their relationship with food and make better choices for themselves.

A different approach

For far too long we’ve been inundated with misguided messaging about food, weight and diet – told that we lack willpower or that we just need more self-control. On top of this, the majority of nutrition experts promote conflicting advice. The result is that people are confused about what to eat, how to have a happy relationship with food and a healthy metabolism.

In my professional practice, I combine many of the best strategies from nutrition science and eating psychology, and by eliminating all the “shoulds and shouldn’ts”, focus on what’s right for your body and your personal style. As we work together in this way, eating and health issues become a place of exploration; instead of seeing such challenges as the enemy, they become opportunities for growth and self-improvement.
