Ok, let’s start with ‘like’ or maybe ‘accept’ or maybe just not ‘consistently hate on ourselves’.
Summer is coming and I can already sense the dread. The fear, the panic…
I can hear it in the words of the women around me.
“I need to start exercising”
“I need to lose this belly"
“Too much cellulite, bingo wings, saggy tits, flabby arse”
Do any of these feel familiar to you?
You feel safer in the winter
You feel self-conscious as it starts to warm up
You start comparing yourself to 20-year-olds on social media
Ridiculous ‘diets’ keep popping up on your social feed
You promised yourself
that it would be different this year.
That you would ‘eat healthily’
That you would ‘get fit’
That you’d lose this stone, 2 stone….
But, you didn’t
You didn’t ‘achieve’ the ‘dream body’, the ‘bikini body’ or the ‘summer body’
Or, you’ve just given up completely!!!
So, you start hating on yourself, again and if you’re honest…
The number on the scales makes you want to cry
You are a dress size you don’t recognise
You hate going clothes shopping
And you’ve stopped buying clothes that you love
In fact, you’ve stopped doing things you love, with the people you love
And, you feel as though you have failed. You start dreading social events and thinking of ways not to go. And you know that you are WAY more than a number…
But you feel defeated. And ashamed. And out of ideas. And actually, pretty depressed and depleted…
What if I told you that I have something that I think will help? (because I do!)
What if I told you that you:
COULD have a very different relationship with your body?
COULD heal your relationship with your body?
that your relationship with yourself is the key to healing?
Because we cannot heal a body that we hate…
What if I told you that you can get out of that restrict, overeat, restrict, overeat…Push the ‘fuck-it’ button…Punish yourself cycle?
And what if I told you that it had a LOT less to do with your ‘diet’? That an intensive exercise programme isn’t gonna fix it.
a dose of real self-kindness (alongside this incredible programme ) just might.
I know you’re probably thinking that it can’t be THAT easy! But what if it is? What if tending to and befriending your body was the ONLY real way to find peace?
If you are ready to:
Stop being in an abusive relationship...with yourself
Reduce that awful bloody sense of panic and self-hatred
Begin to feel at home in your own skin
Start truly taking care of yourself
Remove the need for ‘willpower’
Stop obsessing about food, weight, appearance
Reduce the mindless, emotional eating
Reduce those intrusive thoughts of not doing or being enough or too much
Care WAY less about what ‘they’ think
Walk into the event feeling truly confident
Have so much more time and energy to do the things you love this summer
You are going to LOVE ...
The Body Love Edition!
A 30-Day Intensive that might just save you SO much time, money (surgery is probably not the answer) and heartache…
So, if you know that you have been through enough with this food/diet/weight thing.
And you know that you deserve more.
And you know that it is an inside job.
But you keep looking outside for a solution.
And you know it should be WAY more fun than this.
But it is completely fucking exhausting!!!
And you know that deep down, you are wasting SO much energy on this.
But you don’t know how to make it stop.
Then maybe it is time you woke up and remembered...
That the time, money and effort you are giving to this, could be spent creating the most gorgeous, gentle, tender relationship with the MOST IMPORTANT PERSON you will ever know...
I approach self-love in a completely unique trauma-responsive way, working on our deepest layers, to create sustainable shifts.
Mind, heart, nervous system healing for women who have been through enough!!!
This is not a ‘quick-fix’ but it will be an AMAZING reset.

“I've learnt more in your workshops than any sessions with any other professional in my whole adult life so far! Everything makes perfect sense. That’s how I feel when you present your workshops, it’s like the pennies are finally dropping all over the place for me and I feel that I can finally learn what I’ve always had missing!”
