What made you want to become an Eating Psychology Coach?
I am passionate about empowering women to heal the relationship between emotional body and food. I am 30kg less because I used mind body nutrition to swap my internal war for a life of freedom. Today I am grateful for how my own hurts and setbacks helped me reach my full potential in this world. It is through healing my own food, emotional, and body challenges that I can help others today. As an Eating Psychology Coach, I get to make a real difference by helping others through their struggles so they can realize their dreams in this world. It is a privilege to live my life with that much purpose.
What does your practice look like?
In my practice, I work with clients (male & female) in person or on Skype. I also coach women’s groups and corporate groups that meet weekly to explore and heal their issues with body and food. I do talks whenever I’m invited as speaker. I work with addictions and behavioural problems. My speciality is mind body connection, eating psychology, nutrition, healing the emotional body, and using the subconscious mind to facilitate lasting change. My approach is not only physical transformation, but emotional and mental transformation as well.

How has being an Eating Psychology Coach impacted your professional life/financial well-being?
Knowing some stuff through your own understanding is one thing. Being qualified to offer learned opinions is quite another. In my work as a Certified Eating Psychology Coach, my professional life keeps increasing as one satisfied client tells another. The confidence gained from my qualifications and seeing real results with clients – priceless.
How has being an Eating Psychology Coach impacted you personally?
Through my work, my life is finally driven by my soul purpose, everything in my life is better because of that.
