THRIVE GROUP COACHING
A 12 week small group programme to help you overcome disordered eating and body image concerns
PLEASE ENQUIRE TO REGISTER YOUR INTEREST
Bamboo group has been designed for those experiencing episodes of binge eating [including binge eating disorder], emotional eating that causes distress and those that are stuck in a chronic dieting cycle.
Small group coaching has been designed for individuals who are experiencing an eating disorder, disordered eating or chronic dieting and would like to develop greater food freedom, an improved relationship with their bodies and feel liberated to prioritise time to enjoy rest and play. Everyone presents with slightly differing symptoms of disordered eating or chronic dieting but common humanity can be found in that thoughts and behaviours surrounding food, the body, eating and exercise are impacting everyday life in a negative way. This coaching has been designed to provide the support, safety, psycho-nutrition education, cognitive and somatic skills, tools and strategies and to aid understanding of why you turn to distressing behaviours as a way to cope and how to change that.
As I Dietitian, Personal Trainer and Therapist, I am clinically trained and work holistically with mind, body, heart and soul; because our relationship with food, eating and our bodies are so much deeper than we often recognise. (If you are not sure what the difference is between a dietitian and other nutrition professionals please click here)
EXPERT, EMPATHIC COACHING
Every week for twelve weeks we meet together virtually to focus on a different aspect of psycho-somatic-nutrition education alongside practical skills, strategies and practices to not only support you gain greater knowledge of why you continue to perform behaviours that are distressing, but to also give you implementable coping tools to widen your window of tolerance so you are confident that no matter how much anxiety you experience when creating new behaviours and overcoming fears, you have the skills and tools to tolerate it.
COMMUNITY AND CONNECTION
Our group will also be a safe place for you to share your stories and learn from one another, giving you an opportunity to nurture a small community to offer and receive support. Our coaching group is kept small and intimate to allow you to feel heard. I add you to confidential whats ap group so you can share skills and resources during and following the coaching too.

Cactus group has been designed for those in quasi recovery. This is when you may have worked really hard in your recovery from an eating disorder or disordered eating and noticed some improvement [and it would be easy to settle at this place with the rest of the world not noticing]; but you know that you are still struggling with distressing and/or controlling thoughts around body image and eating and not yet experiencing the full freedom that you deserve.
Alongside weekly coaching sessions, I provide you with individual weekly support and guidance through our E-consultations to offer you personalised direction and encouragement.
RESOURCES AND TOOLS
You receive a virtual toolbox filled with my recordings, worksheets and E-books that you can utilise during your coaching and for as long as you need afterwards.
Group coaching is not only more accessible in comparison to purely personalised support, but it also reduces feelings of loneliness and isolation that disordered eating can create. It provides a sense of common humanity and comfort that others understand because they are experiencing too. It is natural to feel nervous about group coaching, however it doesn't take long for the group to feel like a great support system.
