Life, Fitness, Wellness & Food Coach
Meditation Teacher & Therapist, Holistic Counsellor
Wow… when I reflect on the life I have lived thus far, I am amazed, proud and ever so thankful! Without truly living I wouldn’t have amassed the experience, knowledge, awareness, fortitude and sheer determination to make my life a reflection of my inner desires. Thank you.
Throughout a mammoth personal struggle of many twists, turns, ups and downs, I’ve now fulfilled my true inner calling to be in a position of helping others. And I couldn’t more grateful or happy about that!
The Road to MindBodyFood…
I personally battled bulimia nervosa, emotional eating, food addiction, depression, perfectionism, people-pleasing, self-hatred and self-doubt since my mid teens. I lived with my constant inner critic, low self-esteem and self-defeating behaviours for many years before finally navigating the mental conflict that took control over my life.
The unhappy soul in me was never satisfied - my needs were ignored and certainly not fulfilled. I was constantly searching for something - anything - to take away the pain and feel safe, valid, significant and loved.
It wasn’t until the moment I realised I was the “key” that I began to unlock the answers within.
Throughout my own journey and recovery I tried to help others along the way. In my twenties I worked as a Weight Loss Counsellor and Lifeline Telephone Crisis Counsellor. I became involved with the Queensland Eating Disorder Association offering counselling support for other sufferers and their carers. I became a contributing writer for their monthly newsletter, Through The Looking Glass, and have since published many articles for various print and online media, including a major feature in Runners World magazine.
The ultimate gift is in publishing my first book, documenting the highs, lows and hilarity of my own journey of recovery.
Using various therapies, strategies and techniques alongside my natural instinct, I can guide you in developing greater self-awareness to manage your stress effectively, change your mindset, create a more balanced life, and most importantly, replace limiting beliefs with a proactive, positive and realistic mindset determined to change your attitude towards yourself, eating and your life.
I’m constantly reading, watching, studying and learning about: personal growth & development, natural & living foods, wealth & success, health & fitness, metabolism & hormones, mindset & affirmations. For many years I’ve followed the teachings of experts such as Louise L Hay, Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy, Bob Proctor, Tom Venuto, Yuri Elkaim, David Wolfe, Kris Carr, Esther & Jerry Hicks, Dr Robert Anthony, Dr Wayne Dyer, Dr Sherrill Sellman and Dr Mercola, to name a few.
With 17 years of experience, personal insight and professional development in health, fitness, nutrition, biopsychology, counselling, coaching, meditation and wellness, my aim is to help you overcome the emotional rollercoaster of disordered eating from unresolved emotions, unmanaged stress and old sub-conscious beliefs creating self-sabotaging behaviours.
Helping others who struggle with stress and eating issues, body image and self-esteem is my true passion. I use both personal and professional experience to help you define, plan and achieve your goals with empathy, knowledge, skill and constant support. I’ll give you my warmth, generosity, strength and enthusiasm to inspire you to reclaim your identity, own your actions and take control of your life.
I look forward to meeting you!
