Binge eating affects people of different age, gender and cultural background. Evidence suggests that it is the most common of eating disorders in the UK. It often involves consuming large quantities of food in a short amount of time until feeling physically uncomfortable. There is usually a sense of loss of control followed by guilt and shame. If this resonates please know that I understand your struggle. My mission is to help people improve their relationship with food and find freedom. My passion comes from past experience of my own food struggles and realising that healing comes from taking a holistic approach that takes into account physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.
For some people binge eating stems from dieting while for others there is a psychological trigger. Whichever it is in your case, your struggle is valid and it is not your fault. I believe that listening and connecting to your body can help you in recovery. Usually people experience feeling disconnect when they binge. This can be distressing and often causes people to blame themselves for not being disciplined enough. You may feel alone, hopeless and ashamed too many times and wondering what to do with these feelings. This is where I can help.
According to the HAES® (Health At Every Size®) movement it is possible to be in good health while in a larger body. It is also important to remember that your worth is not defined by your body size. I believe that having a healthier relationship with food comes from having freedom of choice instead of having rules about food. Choices that come from a place of self-care instead of a restrictive mindset often contribute to balance and wellbeing. Making peace with food and recovery is about creating new ways of relating that will honour both your physical and mental health. If you are looking to find peace with food and nurture your body and mind in ways that support you rather than work against you feel free to contact me.
