I have a couple questions for you.  

How do you know if your client feels relative safety to trust you?  

When a client says they feel better thinner and they cognitively get that thinner does not make an enormous difference in day-to-day life events/relationship but still hold onto to the “just in case” of pursuing thinness, do you know how to help them “un-velcro” from the hyper-vigilance?

Do you know who, why and what to do when you feel stuck, rattled, frustrated, or overwhelmed in session? What is your stuff and what is theirs?

When it comes to minimizing the threat response at mealtimes, do you know the 4 missing actions steps to help clients go from “I don’t know what to eat/can’t stop binging/don’t have time/don’t know how” to create a landing pad for food to happen?

If you are looking to say yes to all these questions and for your nutrition counseling and education can stick then consider…
