To eat or not to eat - that is the question...

Do you find information about healthy nutrition quiet confusing? And has following a healthy diet become a kind of stress for you? Are you somehow stuck in your eating habits and overthinking them?


I am an experienced nutrition scientist and nutritionist specialised on nutrition psychology. I can advise you independently to

  • get clarity on what is really healthy nutrition
  • understand where and why you are stuck in certain eating habits
  • become more self-empowered to change your nutrition
  • feel much freer when deciding about what, when, how to eat and feel less restricted, guilty, or fearful

Welcome to my

Practice for dietary advice and nutrition psychology

Whatever you share, you will be provided a trustworthy context.

My practice is located in Binningen next to Basel and easy to access by public transport.

Holistic approach & nutrition psychology

The approach comprises different aspects which have proven to be essential for nutrition counseling:

  • a clear explanation of a healthy diet (nutrition education) and the impact of healthy nutrition on your wellbeing and your body
  • body focused approach which means
    • explaining the body´s impact and the body´s stress on your eating behaviour, for example calming yourself down by eating
    • making you more sensitive for the signs of your body such as hunger, thirst, satisfaction, low blood sugar, or craving without being hungry
  • practical help and tools to make you more sensitive and aware in order to enable you to help yourself (empowering you)
  • my empathy as well as trustworthy frame to share and work together

Holistic approach in nutrition counselling means that we will have a look on your nutrition within the context of your body, emotions, needs. Therefore, a body oriented psychological approach is needed, as your body and your unconsciousness eating habits often represent unspoken messages about your desires, your needs, as well as your conflicts. We might even see the connections between your eating habits and what you experience in life. Thus, you will have a chance of even experiencing a personal development. In fact, the so induced personal development will provide - vice versa -  the fundament for changing your eating habits. It is a change that comes from inside by being self-empowered.

I can help you with the following subjects

  • disordered eating such as
    • craving
    • experiencing never-ending phases of restricted eating (strict diets) with possible weight loss alternating with phases of eating attacts and possible weight gain
  • overthinking such as what to eat, how much to eat, what to trust so that it takes a marked amount of energy and time in your daily life
  • being strict with yourself and your ideas of how to eat as well as feelings of guilt and possibly even shame in case you fail to fulfill your ideal
  • eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, orthorexia,night eating, secret eating
  • obesity as well as diseases like hypcholesterolemia, diabetes etc.

About me

Özlem Schader

Dipl. Oecotrophologin (nutrition scientist)

Ernährungsberaterin SVDE-SRK 


I have been continuously studying and trying to understand human´s eating behaviour. 


Not only are people by so much contradictory information outside. If they finally set goals how to eat, they experience problems and are even desperate in trying to apply a better eating behaviour. There is a connection between our more or less healthy eating patterns and stress which can be explained by aspects of neurobiology as well as bonding or relationships.


I love to share my knowledge to let people recognise their patterns and vicious cycles and enable them to help themselves.  For me, it is a pleasure to see people even grow personally.
