DISCOVER FOOD FREEDOM

Regardless of your weight, if you’re eating addictively and food is on your mind 24/7, I can help you. I offer 1-1 coaching and group coaching. I’ve recovered from food addiction and binge eating disorder and I can relate to your struggles. If I’ve recovered, so can you!

Addictive eating is a spectrum, and some of us are more affected than others. Most people who find me have reached a critical level. But my approach will benefit you even if your addictive eating is mild.

Food freedom coaching is for you if you want to:

  • Lose weight and keep it off
  • Enjoy a right-sized body
  • Stop dieting
  • Stop bingeing
  • End food hangovers and food fog
  • Stop mind chatter about food and weight
  • Experience peace of mind
  • Live an emotionally balanced life
  • Discover life beyond food
  • Are willing to do what it takes

Let me paint you a picture of what food freedom looks like: Food is in its rightful place, leaving room for a fulfilling life between meals. Meals are abundant, delicious and healthful. You’re enjoying living in a right-sized body or are moving towards a healthy body weight. You have an air of calm and quiet certainty and a peaceful, positive mind. You gracefully deal with life’s ups and downs and face inner and outer challenges with strength. You act with full integrity and your actions reflect your values. You enjoy healthy relationships with yourself, others and the world around you. You’re dedicated to rigorous self-honesty and a lifestyle of daily self-care that expands your food freedom. If right now you’re in the grips of a powerful food addiction, food freedom is a priceless gift!

Are you ready to discover life beyond food? Are you willing to go to any lengths? Get in touch for a free consultation.

What does working with me look like?

I’m a coach, counsellor and mentor with personal experience ‘from the trenches’ of food addiction. Think of working with me as a mentorship. I work quite intensively with most of my clients. I also offer single sessions depending on your needs and existing support network. I don’t believe in quick fixes. We focus on steady progress and long-term sustainability.

In our sessions I share practical tips based on the collective experience of food addicts around the world. I share the wealth of knowledge gained from research on food addiction and the psychology of eating. I draw on a global network of experts to keep you up to date with the latest knowledge on food addiction.

I’m not a psychologist or psychotherapist. I don’t hold any special licenses for curing addictions or eating disorders. I bring firsthand experience of the underground food addiction recovery movement and have helped other food addicts on their journeys to food sobriety and peace of mind.

I’m also not a qualified nutritionist, weight loss professional or dietician. But during our work together I may offer a food plan with firm eating principles, and encourage you to discuss it with your healthcare professional. I do this because I know when you’re in a seemingly hopeless cycle of addictive eating, receiving firm direction on what to eat can be a relief. As a fellow food addict I’ll share a system that works for me in sticking to a way of eating and living which brings freedom.

We’ll be working together on four dimensions; physical, emotional, mind and spiritual.

The physical dimension refers to the body. We improve your food and eating habits so that you can reach a healthy weight, overcome withdrawals, cravings and food obsession. This may be done in collaboration with your doctor depending on your circumstances. We’ll be working on embedding daily actions into your lifestyle to support you.

As soon as you’ll stop eating addictively the emotions will start coming up. The emotional dimension of our work will equip you with the skills you need to live an emotionally balanced life without excess food. Yes, it’s possible!

Working with the mind, you’ll gain awareness of how your thinking affects your eating, your moods and your behaviours in all areas of your life. You’ll gradually learn to build positive and and supportive thought and behaviour patterns to help you flourish.

The spiritual dimension helps you harness  the inner strength, courage and motivation you need to be the best version of yourself and experience a life where your values and actions are fully aligned. This is not about religion. It’s a very sober, simple and functional type of spirituality. No magic wands.

I’ll be sharing reading material and practical information, help you build self-awareness, and equip you with new skills and perspectives. It’s fun and it’s hard, but it’s always rewarding and brings a lot of growth. I’ll be guiding and supporting you through a process of gradual transformation. I bear witness to that transformation being possible.

Of course I’m not a magician. I can’t guarantee results. In my recovery, I found that I had to be willing to do the work as if my life depended on it. And I remain dedicated to my daily actions to keep my food peace one day at a time. It’s been such a rewarding journey for me. And I’ll support you on your journey.

If needed, I’ll collaborate closely with your healthcare professionals, such as nutritionists, dieticians, doctors, psychologists and psychiatrists to provide a holistic service. I’ll mentor you in a way that a non-food addict simply wouldn’t be able to. Often, healthcare professionals will give you well-meaning advice that doesn’t seem to be working for you. Unfortunately, food addiction is not yet a well known or recognised condition so it’s not well understood by the healthcare system.  I have an information pack for your healthcare professionals, and I’m also happy to talk to them to make sure we’re giving you the best support as a team.

If you’re interested in my bespoke group coaching programs, please get in touch to express your interest so I can let you know about details and dates.

You can also explore my general life coaching if you’re happy with your food but are blocked in other areas of your life.
