Who is it for

If you are currently working with athletes and performers you are working with an at-risk population for eating disorders. Reaching peak performance should not mean developing an excessive preoccupation with eating, shape and weight.

Change will not come from the athletes alone but with the help of the organizations and the people who coach them, support them and work with them daily. With the right education, mindset, and protocols sports systems can be central in ensuring athlete health and wellness.

The DFP difference

I am proud of the progress we have made, supported by Alexia de Macar and Jodie Richardson. They were able to guide our teaching team by pointing out the markers to look out for. We have been able to address the major issues that can plague our aspiring artists: anxiety, low self-esteem, eating disorders, etc.
