We're Sara & Bekah

We're passionate about improving the relationship people have with their bodies and food.

We work with people 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 anyone who has spent their life tormented by the diet industry.

Dr Sara Dowsett (she/her) 

Counselling Psychologist, Certified Intuitive Eating Therapist, Founder of The Intuitive Psychology Academy.

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

By founding The Intuitive Psychology Academy, I aim to tackle the issues at the root of the diet industry, while providing people with education and therapies to support them in their journey to healing their relationship with their body and food.

I am a registered Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) Psychologist and a chartered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS). I am also a member of the Association for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH), a certified Intuitive Eating therapist and I adhere to the Heath at Every Size (HAES) principles in the work I carry out.

I like to provide therapy that feels both approachable and engaging. I'll sit alongside you, listen and support 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.

Bekah Ellis (she/they)

I am a Body Activist and Social Media Influencer in all things body image related.

I am a big part of the anti-diet movement and work to spread the message that dropping out of diet culture is, in fact, possible!

I am also responsible for all things creative. 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 I teach 6 of the 14 training lessons in our online course - Diet Culture Dropout!

We connected due to our shared passion for the anti-diet movement and all things mental health, and combined forces to create what you see here today… a safe space for folks to drop out of diet culture and reclaim their relationship with their bodies and food-for good.
