Welcome To My Page

Throughout my life, I struggled with chronic dieting, binge eating, and body image issues. Following the popular advice to exercise more and eat less only made things worse. As a young woman, I faced numerous health challenges, experienced weight loss resistance, and felt a sense of self-doubt due to my perceived "failed" attempts at weight loss.

 

Only during my healing process, I discovered that my struggles weren't solely related to food and exercise. They were also rooted in my beliefs about myself and the unrealistic societal standards of beauty. I came to realise that strict diets aren't the solution and that achieving sustainable weight loss requires a holistic approach, one that focuses on the body (physiology) and mind (psychology) of the "eater".  Instead of training my willpower, I learned to focus on understanding my relationship with food, managing emotions and stress, finding a balance between physical activity and rest, and recognising hunger and satiety signals, among others. 

My journey led me to become a Nutritionist and Eating Psychology Coach.

Through my in-person and online services, I help people transform their health and relationship with food and their bodies.

 

I take a holistic approach, delving into the root causes of health problems as well as weight-loss resistance. I utilize various functional tests including DNA testing.

My Story and My Why

I started dieting and disliking my body at just 16, while my mum, at 46, also struggled with self-acceptance and increasing body weight due to emotional eating and stress from her demanding job.

Despite being a superhero in every sense—dedicated to her work and loved by everyone for her ongoing support—my mum couldn't escape the grip of self-doubt and dissatisfaction with her body.

Every night, she would stand in front of the mirror, feeling like she was failing....

At the same time, she would tell me to accept myself, but how could I take advice from her when she couldn’t model self-acceptance for me?

While I was going through the challenges of puberty, my mum was in perimenopause – a phase I understand so much better now (being almost 46 myself).

Her constant self-criticism and lack of self-care which intensified over the years, ultimately took a toll on her health. She passed away from cancer in 2016.

Our shared journey opened my eyes to the destructive power of body hate and dieting and it became my mission in life to help people break free from this vicious cycle.

Ten years ago, I was lucky to learn the power of self-compassion and the importance of approaching weight and emotional challenges with empathy and understanding. My approach today is rooted in evidence-based nutrition science, eating psychology, and transformative coaching, guiding people through their journey with love and support every step of the way.


Every day, I dedicate my work to my mum, Janina. 

In addition to my work with individuals, I also strive to raise awareness about the harmful effects of diet culture and unrealistic beauty standards on our society. I have seen first-hand how these societal pressures can lead to disordered eating habits and low self-esteem.
