Meet the founder

Hey, I'm Shannon

I built Ease Nutrition Therapy so people like you can live without negative thoughts about food, eating, and their body.

I want you to have less anxiety, fear, and discomfort with eating. I wish you could feel more easy breezy and more able to live the life you dream of.

Myself and my amazing team can help you go from food obsession and worry to food bliss.

Simply put; I know how it feels to live with disordered eating.

I’ve been there too – for many years. I struggled from a young age with cycles of restriction, purging, and binge eating.

Followed by “pseudo-recovery” which involved lots of clean eating, a long stint at eating only plant based, being gluten free (and most things free), paleo, keto, food combining, eating in line with Auveryedia, low-carb, high-carb, raw till 4. You know it? I’ve probably dabbled.

When I qualified as a nutritionist, it felt like my duty to give people like you the support I wish I had.

I wish someone would just tell me what to eat! By the time I graduated my Masters in Nutrition, my relationship to food was in a really great place. And I knew my true calling was to help people with their relationship to food, not just giving them more rules.

I then trained in counselling and psychotherapy, and gained lots of additional training in eating disorders and body image to help my future clients best.

Like most people we work with, my road to recovery was long & tough.

I saw many clinicians: therapists, dietitians, nutritionists, coaches. Some didn’t understand the food side of things. And others didn’t understand the emotional + mental health side of things. All the options for support were really disjoined + like they were missing something.

All the while, my health was terrible not just in my eating disorder. But in my digestion and menstrual health too. I had horrendous IBS for many years, and my period was all over the place.

I knew I needed to create support that felt whole. Support that gave the food/nutrition side AND the emotional side. Support that understand that my disordered eating wasn’t just me trying to “be healthy” – it was a coping mechanism for things that happened in my life. But, it was ALSO a condition of the world we live in. AKA a world that is image-focused + encourages disordered eating.

As you can see, I’ve put a lot of years of thought into this!

Throughout my recovery from disordered eating + poor mental health, I wished I had someone who understood how my eating disorder behaviours weaved into all areas of my life. But I also wanted someone who was invested in my physical well-being. I felt like therapy was all about talking, with no action.

I wanted someone to fully support me in moving forward. That’s how my passion for helping others with a tough relationship to food began.

It’s what lead to this clinic that is now Ease Nutrition Therapy.

It started out as just me, but now I have a team. This includes two other clinicians to see clients, Tiuka and Kacie. They are wonderful additions and support our clients just how I would.

Meet the team

Shannon (she/her) - founder , lead nutrition counsellor, eating disorder recovery coach

Hey there - I’m Shannon. I love with the easy breezy things in life: being at the beach, relaxing with a coffee, reading, lying down.... I'm obsessed with my beautiful tuxedo cat, Lily. I’m Scottish - currently, I'm living in Aberdeen, on the North East coast. I'm a water baby -- I love being by the beach, coast, or any body of water really. I’ve been a Swiftie since 2008 - I hit up Taylor Swift club nights on the reg. I'm an older sister and I fit most of the stereotypes! I have too many favourite foods to name just one. Sushi, pizza, cheese, mezze, rice dishes, sandwiches, chocolate, dumplings, fried pizza… My final meal on earth would be a platter of all my favourite things. Clique self-care is my favourite - a bubble bath, a hair mask, getting my nails done, candles - dream! I wish I could listen to podcasts 24/7. I love listening to celebrity gossip, friends chatting, and sports podcasts. I'm a huge tennis fan -- I love to play and watch. My ideal relaxed Sunday is playing tennis and grabbing a coffee and cake on the way home. It’s so cool that you’re here, reading our/my website! I feel super privileged that I can help people as my job.

Toni (she/her) - eating disorders dietitian

My name is Toni (she/her) and I’m a UK HCPC registered online dietitian helping women recover their elationship with food. After years of living in an endless cycle of dieting and binge eating, I am on a mission to help you embrace a balanced and sustainable approach to your relationship with food! It’s time for you to stop feeling guilty and shame about food! Toni is passionate about supporting people to achieve a truly healthy relationship with food and body acceptance, by healing their relationship with food and body by establishing sustainable, health-promoting behaviours for life. Toni was motivated to specialise in eating disorders and intuitive eating after her own experience growing up around diet culture as a young dancer. She understands how overwhelming it can be to stop dieting and in her 20s, struggled with her own body image and disordered eating. Toni believes that recovery from an eating disorder/disordered eating isn't a one size fits all approach. Her style is compassionate, realistic and personal to suit the needs of the individual, preferences and lifestyle. She uses a Health-at-Every-Size and non-diet system to support people in overcoming rigid food rules and food anxiety. When Toni isn't working, you can find her walking her dog, listening to podcasts, paddle boarding, planning holidays and researching the next restaurant she wants to try.

What our clients say about support with us

All of these clients received 1:1 nutrition therapy, our personalised and most transformative option

“She has really helped me to get to a place which I did not think was possible. 

I have been able to identify and eradicate many of my restrictive behaviours, some of which were on a deep, subconscious level”

Jac |

Supported for 9 months with bulimia

“I have been binge free for 2 full months! Crucially, this “binge free” time has meant I’m actually feeding and fuelling my body, but also enjoying all the foods I’ve avoided since I was a teenager.”

Jodie |

Supported for 6 months for binge eating

“I was struggling with making myself sick. Shannon gave me so much help by being gentle yet motivating. Weekly counselling really transformed me and helped me fully recover”

Erica |

Supported for 10 months for restriction and purging
