I'm Rachel Anne Hobbs and my mission is to help individuals restore their relationship with food, reconnect to their bodies and reclaim their voice, their truth and their freedom to live a life they love. 

I am a clinically trained dietitian, certified therapist and have been voted one of the top 10 exercise trainers in the world. 

I help individuals just like you, to overcome fear, develop food freedom and rediscover themselves and their passions so they are finally free to experience joy, pleasure and purpose. For the past decade my passion has been to  pluralistically support individuals to recover from disordered eating, chronic dieting, compulsive exercise and heal body image and weight concerns.

I have guided clients to recover from years of chaotic eating, restore their menstrual cycle, optimise digestive health and truly learn to respect and reconnect to their body and the wisdom it holds. I know experiencing freedom, joy and pleasure is not only possible, but it is our birthright because I too have been where you are. 

My own transformational journey from adolescent  trauma and disordered eating to healing and wellness was guided by a therapist who showed me unconditional empathy and kindness which alongside my own personal, professional and spiritual development allowed me to not only heal, but also find beauty and joy in daily life. 

You deserve to take up space, your body is yours to occupy. I have over 10,000 hours of clinical experience  and work integratively with mind, body, heart and spirit; because our relationship with food and our body are so much deeper than many people recognise. Modern life often gives us pains, trauma and stress, which can lead us to become deeply disconnected to our bodies, ourselves and the world. Part of my work is to support you to slow down and tune into the wisdom your body holds, to allow you to feel safe in your body, to allow you to see it as an ally, not an enemy. 

It is time to stop letting shame and fear control you. My work  is compassion led, soul centred and grounded in evidence based practice. I am a trauma informed practitioner, which means my work embodies safety, choice, collaboration trustworthiness and empowerment. I support you to acknowledge and respect your story so far and give you the tools, space and care so you feel empowered to write your next chapter.

"I haven't just recovered from years of disordered eating, I have recovered myself, the parts of me that got lost when I put my time and energy into thinking about food. I used to think if I lost the food rules and got to know myself it would mean letting myself go; but now I have done it, it feels like I have set myself free." Leanne, Food Freedom Therapy
