Hi, I'm Marissa ! 

A Warm Welcome to Nourishing Routes 

After spending many year's in and out of hospital and clinically intimidating therapy rooms, I felt that there must be something better for individuals in Recovery from an eating disorder. 

 

 I also knew that i needed to go on my own compassionate journey to wellness that didn't involve obsessing about weight, Calories, strict routines and numbers. 

 

Aside from learning everything I possibly could about Psychology, Nutrition, Counselling and Health at university, the real progress was made outside the classroom.

 

I am reclaiming back my life through practicing self compassion, social connection, yoga, practically challenging all of my fear foods, expressing creativity and understanding the value of peer support from someone who really knows what eating disorders and the recovery process feels and looks like. 

 

 I believe that we can all be experts by experience in our own recovery, and I invite you to take a journey with me to reclaim back your own recovery journey and ultimately your life.

 

I love to empower as many individuals as possible to find their own Self-compassionate Journey to reclaiming their own recovery through being able to:

 Love Food,

Adore Your Body

Become Your Natural Self 

 

Nourishing Routes refers to a compassionate, lifelong journey where we can view  health and wellbeing as something much more meaningful and beautiful than the exact nutrients we eat, what we weigh, or the amount of exercise we carry out. 

 

" Being nourished is not solely something we can

directly attain from energy or nutrients in food –

 

I believe that there is a much more

exciting adventure to be explored "

without being held back by a

negative relationship

with Food and Body "
