"This course was transformative personally and professionally. It has changed the way I work with clients in helping them manage stress and stress eating. Best thing I ever did for myself."

Claire Stuebe, LPC;  U.S.A.

"As a registered dietitian working in weight management and eating disorders, I came into the program with knowledge and experience in mindful eating practices. However, this program taught me more skills to help my clients that I was able to implement quickly. This is a very practical course and evidenced based. It was highly interactive and we were provided with immediate feedback from Andrea and our peers. I loved it! What surprised me was that I personally benefited from this training because part of the program is cultivating a mindfulness meditation practice. This program was exactly what I was looking and it absolutely exceeded my expectations. Thanks!"

Heather Bainbridge, RDN; U.S.A.

"This is a wonderful program to help professionals help people with behavior change, both learning what is your inner wisdom and your outer wisdom. This is one of the best classes I have taken in my 35 years as a nutrition professional and I highly recommend it. Andrea is a compassionate, patient teacher."

Linda Rosini, RDN, IFNCP, CDE, CNSC

"Your program has changed my life and my health... one of the best decisions I ever made!"

Tracy Glatz, RD,

"The online MB-EAT program is one of the best online courses I’ve taken. I have integrated so many of the practices in my day-to-day, and I have become more empowered in my relationship with food as well as the relationship I have with myself."

Michelle Schneider, Integrative Nutrition Coach, U.S.A.

I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone wishing to delve deeper into mindful living and eating. This course has really transformed my relationship to food, eating and to my body. As a professional training course, it has equipped me with the confidence, the skill and the tools to start sharing this work with others. Andrea is a wonderful teacher - she delivers each session with clarity and expertise with her vast experience and wealth of experiences shining through. She really listens and creates a safe, warm and friendly learning environment. 

Claire Rother; U.K.

 "The MB-EAT training program taught me specific meditations and gave me a frame work to use with my clients who struggle with Binge Eating Disorder. I am also grateful that it was taught from a Health at Every Size perspective, removing weight loss as a central focus which so often continues to hinder clients ability to heal and nurture themselves truly."

   Meghan Campbell - MS Ed., LPC, USA

 "This has been a training of incredible value, professionalism and quality. I felt welcomed and with permanent invitation to experience learning, change and progress both in my own personal mindfulness practice and as a health professional. I appreciated the depth of the content, the course materials and the warmth of Andrea’s teaching. It has helped me get aligned with my values, my own personal needs and goals, and who I am."   

   Maricarmen Grisolia - RDN, France

 "The course was beyond my expectations. Presentation of contents, meditations, communications, and interaction, all are conducted in a friendly and professional manner. The course provides the tools to understand and improve the relationship with food, become awareness of habits, triggers, cravings, and become a mindful eater."

  Nora Oliveri - MD, Argentina
