FAQs

I’m here to answer your questions – always

I am only ever a phone call away. But in case you’re browsing this website at some ungodly hour of the night, I’ve answered some of the most common fussy eating questions below.

 

What about covid-19?

With COVID-19, please note that I have had to suspend visits to families, however I work online via facetime, skype and zoom, with individuals and groups.

How do I know if professional support is necessary?

If your child’s fussy eating behaviours are persistent, it’s worth tackling them – as they may not go away without intervention.

What’s more, as the issue progresses, your child’s food choices may continue to narrow. And a limited diet may result in nutritional deficiencies that can impact their long-term health.

Also, the long-lasting social effects of fussy eating should not be underestimated. Kids will often take their childhood habits into adolescence and adulthood.

That’s why it’s best to intervene as early as possible.

However, if you’re unsure whether your fussy eater requires professional intervention, book a free 15-minute assessment today.

When should I get help?

When the stress surrounding mealtimes is becoming too much, that’s usually a good sign it’s time to get help.

And if you’re noticing that your child’s food choices are becoming more and more limited, it’s best to act before things get worse. Another common marker is unsuccessful feeding therapy.

However, I find that most families typically know when they need help.

Do you provide services to children of all ages?

Yes. I help babies, toddlers, primary school-aged children, teenagers – and even young adults.

As a parent, how involved do I need to be in the process?

The success of all my solutions depends significantly on you as the parent or carer. You need to be fully committed to introducing the changes needed to achieve results for your child.

Where do you conduct home visits?

I visit families within 20km of Elsternwick/St Kilda (Victoria). If you’re outside this region, my Fussy Eating REMOTE program is delivered online.

What is the waiting time for your services?

On average, I can begin working with your family 2-4 weeks from the time you have booked your program.

Can we get a rebate for your services?

My services are not covered by private health insurance or Medicare. However, NDIS funding is available if you’re self-managing your fund and choose to work with me.

Do you provide services to children with special needs?

I see many children with developmental delays and special needs. This includes everything from language and speech difficulties, to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and ADHD.

How quickly can I expect to see results?

This depends on many factors. Some children require a far greater level of intervention and a longer-term program to achieve the same outcome.

Will our family privacy be protected?

I treat all your information as confidential. To learn more, please read my privacy policy.
