Why is pricing Name Your Own Price / Sliding Scale?

  • To be mindful of the financial difficulties so many are experiencing.​

  • Many like that extra layer of privacy (all out of pocket!)

  • Figure skating and other aesthetic sports are expensive

  • "Adding another expense" can be a barrier that prevents athletes from getting support ​

  • Knowledge on athlete welfare, mental resilience, and body inclusivity needs to be accessible

How do I decide what to pay?

If you are meeting your basic needs, but struggling to partake in the sports you love, workshops would be $30 and private sessions would be $40. 

What is Wellness & Health Coaching?

With some guidance, everyone creates their own Wellness Plan and begins to take steps toward achieving their wellness, food, and health goals.

What is Intuitive Eating?

“Intuitive eating is an approach that teaches you how to create a healthy relationship with your food, mind, and body—where you ultimately become the expert of your own body.   You learn how to distinguish between physical and emotional feelings, and gain a sense of body wisdom.   It’s also a process of making peace with food—-so that you no longer have constant “food worry” thoughts.  It’s knowing that your health and your worth as a person do not change, because you ate a food that you had labeled as “bad” or “fattening"."

How can healing my relationship with food improve my athletic performance?

Healing your relationship with food will improve your athletic performance tremendously. Your brain will no longer be distracted by hunger, lack of fuel, or fatigue. When you're training, you'll be focused on the task at hand; not how your body looks or what you are going to eat later. Healing your relationship with food is associated with increased bodily awareness and the ability to recognize when something in your body feels off, when to push, and when to rest.

How does Wellness & Health Coaching incorporate Intuitive Eating?

When a client's relationship with food and body come up, Aimie incorporates the principles of Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size®. HAES advocates for compassionate self-care, respect for body diversity and supports mindfulness, attuned movement, eating, and self care. It is an evidence based shift that veers away from the idea that people can or need to control their weight through dieting. Thus, Aimie addresses food and body issues in a weight neutral approach. There will never be weigh ins, for weight is not a good indicator of health!

What is Wellness & Health Coaching like?

The coaching experience is much like climbing a mountain with an experienced guide. Guides do not climb the mountain for you, but they enable people to get to new heights in places they may have never been before. They accompany their client on the journey acting as a supporter, source of feedback and accountability. Together, they attain the summit and experience increased wellness.

Is Wellness & Health Coaching the same thing as psychotherapy?

No, Aimie is not a licensed therapist. Coaching is not to replace psychotherapy. As a Wellness & Health Coach, Aimie is a medical ally by helping you achieve the lifestyle improvements your healthcare provider wants to see you make.
