About The Intuitive Psychology Academy

We are a small UK based business passionate about improving the relationship that folks have with their bodies and food. We work with folks of all shapes, sizes and genders to support them in breaking down the barriers that the diet industry puts up. 

Combining our passion for debunking diet culture with our knowledge of psychology and intuitive eating, we aim to provide therapy and educational resources for folks who have spent their whole life tormented by the diet industry. 

Meet The Team


We’re a small business, and we like it that way! It allows us to get to know our clients and give them the attentive support they deserve.


Dr Sara Dowsett is a Counselling Psychologist, a Certified Intuitive Eating Therapist and the founder of The Intuitive Psychology Academy.


 After over a decade of education and experience of working with a wide breadth of psychological presentations, Sara decided to focus on an area she was most passionate about… Body Image Psychology and the anti-diet movement.

With the Intuitive Psychology Academy, she aims to tackle the issues that are at the root of the diet industry, while providing folks with psycho-education and therapeutic interventions to support them in their journey to healing their relationship with their body and food.

Hi, I'm Sara! (she/her)


I use my 10 years of education and clinical practice in psychology to work with clients and provide therapy that feels both approachable and engaging.

I'll sit alongside you, listen and help you to explore your own unique stories. I will hold space for the distress you might currently be experiencing, whilst also keeping in mind the shifts you would like to implement in your life. Finding the right therapist for you is so important, get in touch with me to see if we are a good fit.

I'm Bekah! (she/they)


I am responsible for all things creative at IPA. If you’re admiring our website or a social media post, chances are, I designed it. I work closely with Sara to create content, generate ideas and provide important feedback on our online course.


Sara and I connected due to our shared passion for Health At Every Size (HAES) and the anti-diet movement. We combined forces to create what we have here today… a safe space for everyone to learn and reconnect with their body.
