Food and Body
My motivation in Well of Being and beyond is to help people restore a deeply loving and compassionate connection with their body and to live a life free from rules and habits around food, whatever your past experience has been.
Having experienced Anorexia Nervosa, myself for 15 years, I know first-hand the struggles of living with a difficult relationship with food. I am also fortunate to know the joy of living beyond Anorexia and into a life of freedom from fearful thoughts about food and weight.
I believe deeply that anyone can experience a positive, loving, and compassionate relationship with their body and food, no matter how long they may have suffered. It is my aim to support you to rediscover that positive, loving and trusting relationship with your body and thrive again.
So, how can I help?
Around The Table: A 6-week Guided Group Coaching Programme
This holistic 6-week guided programme will guide you through the core elements which are central to changing your relationship with food and your body forever.
Each week we will come together for 90 minutes to explore some of the key features involved in developing a loving, nurturing and thriving relationship with food, weight and body.
The course will include a short video each week to watch about the key elements before the sessions. In the sessions there will be opportunities to explore your experiences and responses to each element, with opportunities for coaching each week.
I recognise that group work isn’t everyone’s preference and so if you prefer to have individual sessions with me, we will create a package together tailored entirely to your individual needs and hopes.
We can meet as often as is best for you, and for as long as therapy is beneficial to you. All these decisions will be thought about and designed around you, with your hopes and needs at the forefront of every decision.
Individual therapy will help you to explore in a safe, welcoming and accepting space the beliefs that have got in the way of you realising your wellbeing and start to open up the world of resilience, clarity and freedom that is there within you.
It may be that as well as 1:1 therapy, you wish to attend the group too. That is fine – I want your experience within Well of being to be as beneficial to you as possible.
Around The Table: Creating a thriving relationship with food and your body
This is our free-to-join Facebook community. The group is a closed group which is designed to motivate, support and encourage anyone who has a difficult relationship with food and their body. There are opportunities to ask questions, share triumphs and struggles, or learn from the sharing of others in the group. We would love to have you join us.
Talks and Workshops
If you or your organisation would like to learn more about eating disorders, food and weight issues, what creates and exacerbates a difficult relationship with food and our bodies, and how to best support anyone who is struggling, please get in touch for a conversation about how I can help with training and workshops tailored to your needs.
When someone we love is struggling with food and weight, the ripples of suffering can spread far and wide. We know that the impact of food and weight difficulties have a huge effect on relationships, families, and friends. If you are supporting someone you care about and want some support yourself, I am here to help and to reconnect you to your own resilience as well as seeing the resilience in those you are caring for.
