Hello pals! My name is Maddie (she/her) and I am the principal nutritionist and the founder of Messy Health.

Messy Health is all about getting back to the simple, joyful, pleasurable, flexible and expanding relationship with food that we all deserve. We approach this goal in a few ways. We offer 1:1 food-related therapy support in Portland, Geelong and Melbourne, Victoria for NDIS participants and we also offer online courses and other resources to help support people wherever they are at with food.

I am currently undertaking my masters of occupational therapy which is exciting! I have special interests in sensory processing, food-related behaviour and emotional regulation.

You can also view our services page to learn more about what we offer.

Who are we and what do we do?

We provide 1:1 culinary art therapy to help increase confidence and freedom with food. We will be releasing more information about our Kitchen Therapy program soon. Stay tuned

The Messy Health School is an online platofrom where our principal nutritionist has created online, and self-study courses to help people heal their relationship with food and their body. Life is too short for diets and hating our body!

  • Intuitive eating
  • Culinary art therapy
  • Body image
  • Slow living
  • Emotional eating, Binge eating, Gut health, Mental health and more!
