Certified Body Trust® Providers

Certified Body Trust Provider

The multidisciplinary group of people in this directory have spent 10+ months training with us to become Certified Body Trust® Providers. They are some of the wisest, most caring thinkers and process holders we know. Finding community and sharing your process with people who support your liberation is an important part of reclaiming Body Trust. If you do not see someone in your area, many of our providers offer support via video conference or phone. Please reach out to us if you need assistance finding someone to support you.

We are working hard to draw an increasingly diverse group of people to be part of our Body Trust Provider Community. We see how necessary it is to increase inclusive training opportunities for people experiencing marginalization, as the voices and experiences of non-white people, gender variant folks, fat folks and/or people with disabilities have been absent and minimized in the eating disorder field, healthcare and wellness professions. In an effort to include the wisdom and expertise of people who are often excluded or unable to participate in training such as ours, we offer a minimum of five equity priced spots in every cohort. You can read more about the Certification training here.
