Food & Body

You are currently struggling with / in recovery from an eating disorder or form of disordered eating, such as anorexia, othorexia, bulimia, binge eating etc

You are obsessed with eating healthy, clean food in a way that limits the physical and mental energy you can direct to other activities

You flit from one diet or food fad to the next in the hope it will help you feel better, lose weight, avoid experiencing guilt, or gain approval from others
Your routine around food, exercise or work has become so rigid that you feel guilty or unworthy of pleasure if not all goes as planned
Negative thoughts and fears about food rule your experience of enjoyment, fun, work and relationships

Days where you allow yourself to relax without feeling the need to do something are rare or non-existant
You obsessively exercise or embark on rigid fitness plans to the point of exhaustion, even when you don’t enjoy them
You have an obsessive love hate relationship with weighing scales, and the number they tell you play a part in controlling how you feel and behave
You have perfectionist standards that seem out of reach but you still strive to attain them anyway - no matter what the cost
You have goals to follow your dreams or overcome a certain trauma in your life but feel undeserving or too trapped in a vicious cycle of self-judgement

You want to learn to show love and kindness towards yourself and others while improving the quality of your relationships
Could I Be Your Coach ?
My passion to enable you to become the best version of yourself isn't solely based on my academic qualifications reading lots of text books and conducting my own academic research
Alongside the substational evidence based research to underpin the Nourishing Routes philosophy, I am here for you because I have quite literally wore the T-shirt of self-loathing, perfectionism, disordered eating and living miles apart from my authentic self and purpose.
I am here to show you that, despite multiple myths that recovery or self-love isn't possible or worth pursuing,
they absolutely 100% are !
Through realising and putting into practice the philosophy of Nourishing Routes in my own life, I have discovered the far reaching benefits of living more compassionately with my whole self and others, and have been able to fully break free from a negative relationship with food and body, while stepping on a life fulfilling pathway where I can be the best person I was born to be.
Overcoming your own fears and setbacks while saying a big 'get lost' to your harsh inner critic (Or even people who don't believe in your amazingness) may sometimes seem impossible - believe me, I know. But, the reality is that you have so much potential just bubbling inside of you - waiting to be released so that you can show the world what you're made of and make it a much better place for us all to live and thrive in.
