My Story

I struggled with my relationship with food for the majority of my life, up until my early 20’s, when I decided enough was enough.

I started dieting at a young age, name the diet and I’ve probably done it! The toxicity of this really escalated in my late teens, as my dieting became more extreme so did my food obsession. This cycle continued with one fad-diet after another, at the same time my joy for life and mental wellbeing was deteriorating.

My turning point…

I was missing out on experiences and had a profound knowing that I wasn't living the life I was meant to be living because of my relationship with food and my weight. I was constantly tired, my thoughts obsessed over food and weight and I was finding it hard to keep up with daily activities and participate in activities I wanted to.

I knew that that there was nothing I could do but stop dieting and heal my relationship with food. I stopped the diet cycle, the restrict, binge, repeat cycle and reclaimed my life.

Long story short, I made enormous shifts in my mindset and food relationship. I learned how to nourish my body and mind for total wellbeing while getting to a healthy weight. I reconnected with the true pleasure and satisfaction from eating and my body so that listening and honouring its wisdom became intuitive.

Through this journey I found a new joy for living, a truly renewed me. 

Let's rewrite your story. I would love to guide you to a freer, healthier, happier relationship with food and body. Book a complimentary discovery call and I look forward to meeting you.
