Hi! I’m Shawna Melbourn and I am a non-diet Registered Dietitian, an Approved Supervisor through the International Association for Eating Disorder Professionals (CEDRD-S), and I am a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor.
I have walked alongside many individuals and families while they take the courageous steps towards recovery from an eating disorder. My approach is deeply rooted in a non-diet, compassionate approach, while honouring the emotional experience of recovery and without judgement.
With my almost 15 years of dedicating my career to this vulnerable and rewarding population, I developed an online training course for Registered Dietitians and other healthcare providers to learn these valuable and caring tools. In ED for RDs: Eating Disorder EDucation for Registered Dietitians online courses, I will share my years of training, clinical experience from both hospital and private practice and offer a safe place to gather non-diet, evidence-based practical knowledge.
Currently, I have the privilege of working alongside a team of compassionate and caring psychologists and Dietitian in my private practice within Anchor Psychological Services in Ottawa, Canada. Our team specializes in supporting and nurturing recovery from eating disorders, disordered eating and chronic dieting.
