Lane’s main area of interest is in improving her patient's relationship to food, and their body. In her practise, she draws on a combination of counselling techniques and educational tools such as mindful eating and motivational interviewing.
Lane promotes a mostly plant-based approach to eating. She encourages the Mediterranean diet for a healthy heart, mental health and general well-being and to help with achieving and maintaining a healthy weight range. She also assists individuals with planning healthy vegetarian or vegan meals.
She provides nutrition therapy via individual consultations face-to-face, online (Skype, Zoom and FaceTime) and over the phone.
