Are you ready to end your fight with food and make peace with your body? 

I created A Journey to Fullness just for you. 

 

 

 

By the end of the 16 weeks my aim is for;

 

  • You to see yourself as worthy and deserving of joy and you understand what you need and are able to meet those needs with non-judgement, kindness and compassion. ​

  • You have understanding and confidence in nourishing your body with the nutrients it needs to allow you to live a full and vibrant life. 

  • You feel safe occupying the body you are living in and are accepting and grateful for it; you have no desire to intentionally harm or neglect it. 

  • You recognise your feelings, allow them be there without identifying as them and comfortably investigate them with kindness, being curious about the messages they hold. 

  • You know you are worthy just as you are and feel comfortable and confident to implement personal boundaries. 

  • You feel a deep sense of connection to your body, your inner wisdom, other people and to the universe. 

  • You have a toolbox of practices and strategies that you confidently use to support you to manage uncomfortable emotions and respond to distress in a healthy way. 

  • You dedicate time to doing things that you enjoy and know you deserve to experience joy and pleasure; you rest when you are tired. 

  • You can separate your true self from your inner critic and are able to recognise the false messages you have been taught. You are able to restructure the damaging beliefs and thoughts so you can move forwards into your true power. 

  • You dedicate some attention to food and your body in proportion to other areas of your life, leaving more space for fun, connection and self development. You move your body in a way that feels intuitive for you. 

  • You live your life with a general sense of peace, contentment and trust and fully inhabit your body.

 

 

How does it work?
 

Over 16 weeks you will gain access to 32 video modules, two per week. Each module is between 15-30 minutes long and focuses around one or two topics of psycho nutritional education and embodiment as well as practical coping practises and strategies to gradually build up your tool box. There will also be an element of self discovery or self inquiry in these modules as well as guided meditations and somatic practises too. At the end of modules there may be a small action plan and some further resources if you would like to do further reading or exploration. 

I take a integrative approach in my work, so along the journey I guide you through a range of dietetic and therapeutic modalities including cognitive and behavioural, acceptance and commitment, inner child as well as somatic approaches to focus on four key areas; nourishing the body, feeding the spirit, welcoming the feelings and creating new patterns; because healing our relationship with food goes so much deeper than we often acknowledge. 

 

There will also be a peer support group on online group for you to use which I will do answer any questions and do regular Q&As to coach you along your journey.

 

 

What is A Journey to Fullness? 

A Journey to Fullness is a 16 week virtual recovery, rediscovery and reconnection programme designed for individuals that are ready to overcome fear, develop food freedom and rediscover themselves and their passions so they are finally free to experience joy, pleasure and purpose. 

 

I wanted to create a recovery programme that is accessible for anyone experiencing any stress, shame and guilt around eating, food and their bodies that bridges the gap between self help and one to one dietetic therapy. I know how difficult it can be to access funded support and private one to one treatment is not always an option. So my aim for A Journey to Fullness is to provide a holistic, evidence based programme combining science and spirituality, to help you to break free from chaotic eating, reconnect to your body and feel the freedom to truly enjoy life; alongside others that are on a similar journey to you. My experience has shown me that individuals have the ability to self heal if they opportunity and guidance to explore this.

Who is A Journey to Fullness designed for?

A Journey to Fullness has been created for anyone that would like to improve their relationship with eating, food and their bodies to support them to live a more vibrant, joyful life. You may currently be experiencing distressing eating behaviours such as engaging in binge eating or restriction, you may be obsessively calorie counting or following strict foods rules, you may feel guilty after eating or hate what you see in the mirror; or you may be stuck in a diet cycle and fed up of your mental space being overruled with food and body image. However you are experiencing a disconnect from yourself and relying on maladaptive coping mechanisms A Journey to Fullness has been designed to support you to put an end to your battle with food and feel safe to enjoy living in your body.

I have a diagnosed eating disorder, can I join A Journey to Fullness?

Yes, I take a non pathologizing approach in all my work, which means I do not "treat" an illness or disorder but support you along your journey of self discovery so you can gain a compassionate understanding of why you think, feel and behave the way you do; alongside offering you psycho-nutritional education so you are fully informed, and active coping mechanism to support you to manage emotional distress and discomfort in a healthy way rather than turning to maladaptive behaviours around eating, restriction and/or exercise.  If you are being supported by a multi-disciplinary team, I would advise to confirm with them that A Journey to Fullness aligns with your current therapeutic input.

 

Although BMI is not a direct representative marker for health, due to the neurobiological changes that occur at a weight that is below "biologically acceptable", A Journey to Fullness is not suitable if you have a BMI below 17.5 due to the need for clinical management.

Do I need to buy or prepare anything to get the most out of my journey?

As we will be doing some self inquiry regularly throughout the 16 weeks, it would be great if you could buy yourself a notebook or journal and a pen. I would recommend wearing some cosy clothes when you listen to the modules so you feel as relaxed as possible. 

What happens if I miss a week? 

Even though the modules are released weekly, you can access them at any time with your own log in. I recommend trying to engage weekly with the Journey so you feel supported and committed; but if you need to take a break then you can revisit your modules at any time point. This is not a race, gentle, gentle, gentle. 

What happens when the 16 weeks is over? 

You will continue to have access to all the modules, tools and resources and of course it would be lovely to keep you as a member of our online community. 

Who do I contact if I have a question? 

I will be doing regular Q&A's in our community group so please email me info@RachelAnneHobbs.com or write your question directly into the group. It is expected that everyone in the group is respectful of confidentiality to allow members to be as vulnerable as they need to be. 

Do I need to watch the videos or is there an audio version?

The videos are not powerpoints presentations, so it would be fine to shut your eyes and listen to them if this feels better for you.
