Joie empowers clients to become natural and fearless eaters-- to eat what they want, when they want it and to listen to their bodies. In doing so, they learn to make peace and create a new and positive relationship with food.
Joie meal companions are trained professionals who come to the home, school, and office to provide meal support to help clients adhere to their specified plans. By eating a meal alongside the client, they bring a sense of curiosity and compassion to the food experience. Their intention is to help maintain accountability without becoming the food police.
Meal companions are thoroughly trained to deal with clients struggling with disordered eating and eating disorders including: anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and compulsive overeating. Our meal companions also work with bariatric surgery patients, diabetic patients and anyone needing extra support with food.
With therapist, dietitian, psychiatrist and doctor's appointments
the actual eating the food part often goes missed.
