People I've Helped
- "The emotional eating module was LIFE CHANGING for me! I never realised that comfort eating was benefiting me on some level but it all makes sooo much sense for me now. I've been working really hard the last few months to tune into my emotions and pick apart my thoughts to figure out what I really need (it isn't wine - who knew! haha!). The worry journal exercise has stuck with me the most, it's been so helpful, thank you so much for all your help and the videos and workbooks!)" - Programme Member, May 2018
- "I've just got back from a restaurant with my hubby. I thought about what you said about 'unconditional permission to eat' and I ordered exactly what I wanted on the menu (no salad this time!). By our third course, I felt full, but satisfied, like on a deep emotional level, as well as in my belly. I just stopped eating midway through my dessert (this is really HUGE for me, I NEVER stop eating midway through dessert!) and I didn't feel like I'd missed out, or wasted food, offended someone for leaving it, or anything like that. It was just amazing like I could actually listen to my belly and stop eating without the mental battle and wanting to binge." - Programme Member, April 2018
- "I haven't weighed myself in weeks, I just don't care about that number anymore because I'm enjoying my life, eating food I actually like and doing yoga too...and you know what? I feel damn good about myself for the first time in years! I cannot thank you enough, Karen!" - Programme Member, December 2017
