Eating that doughnut
won't make you gain weight.
Stop Dieting And Move Towards A Life Of More
Self-acceptance, authenticity, fulfilment, freedom, and joy.
I know the frustration of having done countless diets, overthinking what foods are the healthiest, beating yourself up for eating the ''forbidden'' foods, constantly losing weight and putting it back on again, and never accepting your body as it is.
This is SO exhausting.
And the sad part is that you end up carrying feelings of shame, self-doubt, and low self-esteem.
You are not lacking willpower or discipline. This is not about being a failure.
The problem is the diet culture, not you.
We are constantly bombarded with diet culture messages about the thin ideal, weight, detoxes, and how we should feed our bodies.
Food becomes "good" or "bad" and inevitably, we end up setting food rules. We all know that voice in our heads that keeps telling us "you shouldn't eat that" or "you need to work this donut off"; it’s almost automatic.
Diet mentality keeps you thinking that there will be a new diet that will help you lose weight permanently and that eventually, you will accept your body and be happy.
But this is a false belief.
The reality is that the diet mindset takes up so much of your energy and mental space that you have little time to explore and re-connect with other aspects of yourself.
Your true, authentic SELF.
Rejecting the idea that there are any good diets out there, and recognising that diets don’t work long-term is the first step to healing your relationship with food, your body and mind.
Although taking this first step may feel daunting, it is truly an act of self-trust and self-love. It is an inward journey to the mind-body connection and healing that involves unlearning and relearning, self-discovery and growth.
I want to help you break the diet mentality and support you in developing trust in yourself and around food, learning skills to cope with your emotions, and building better self-compassion and self-esteem.

1:1 Holistic Counselling Sessions
Food can become an emotional life preserver for those who have experienced childhood or adolescent trauma, and it’s understandably hard to let it go.
Using a traditional approach with more holistic and spiritual methods, I will guide you to relieve that sense of overwhelm, loneliness, stress, isolation and confusion in a non-judgemental and caring space.

What Clients Are Saying
Laura’s coaching has helped me re-set my relationship with food, shown me how to become more mindful of how I eat, and encouraged me to let go of diet mentality. With her compassionate, insightful support I can highly recommend her to anyone caught up in emotional eating.
We all need support at some point in our lives. To ask for help is often the most challenging step, but once you have taken that step you’ll be amazed at the results you can achieve.

Muffins For Breakfast?
Diet culture is really good at creating rules. One of those rules dictates when it is acceptable to eat certain foods. For example, we "should" have oats, fruit, yoghurt or cereal for breakfast or the idea that we "shouldn't" have pasta for dinner. Well, I used to think like that...
What Is Intuitive Eating?
Intuitive eating is a process that can help you get out of your head when it comes to food and body image, move away from rigid external rules and eat according to your natural appetite and satisfaction cues.
