Coach mentoring an athlete

Mentorship

Helping athletes manage eating disorders so that they can perform at their best, while feeling confident in their bodies, is a rewarding practice. In the world of sport or performing arts, it can also be challenging. Having worked in the field for over 10 years, Alexia and Jodie are well equipped to help you manage those challenges. Mentorship programs are available for both dietitians and psychologists, offering ongoing support and education to help you thrive in your practice.

SUPERVISION GROUPS

Our supervision groups are an intimate and confidential space to share and exchange with other practitioners. Groups will consist of sharing and conceptualizing cases, learning new skills and tools, and discussing how to adapt treatment to best serve the athlete population.

"I learned so much from Jodie in our eating disorders in athletes supervision group. She is truly an expert and her passion for this topic is inspiring!"
Dr. Lisa Linardatos

"I enjoy all the more working with athletes who have eating disorders thanks to Alexia’s mentorship. Working with her has taken me beyond my education and has allowed me to finetune my strategies, to better understand WHEN and HOW to apply them. By doing so, I have better results with this vulnerable clientele. The exchanges are rich and allow me to really develop my practice. I wouldn’t do without it anymore!"
Marie-Hélène Bourbonnais
