You could move through this world assured of who you are, comfortable in your body?
You were present spending time with your kids or your partner, instead of in your head judging yourself?
You were fearless to pursue what you wanted in life and had the energy to do it?
You felt sexy and enjoyed being intimate with your partner?
You wore whatever clothing you wanted simply because you liked it?
Well I’m here to tell you – all of the above is absolutely possible.
But - we live in a world that doesn’t tell us that. Our culture (aka “diet culture”) tells us that only thin people get to be happy and healthy. Only thin people get to be successful and attractive.
That is one of the biggest lies we’ve ever been sold.
I know you’ve been here (I have too):
Trying every diet and exercise program in existence, hoping this will be “the one” that sticks.
Comparing your body to others (or comparing yourself to how you looked before).
Feeling lost and confused about what you "should" or "shouldn’t" eat.
Hearing about the "war on obesity", so naturally, fearing weight gain.
And of course, hearing that voice inside your head running a list of flaws when you stand in front the mirror.
All of this – Wears. You. Down. (Not to mention steals your joy.)
Deep down a part of you knows this.
That part of you longs to be free of the weight loss and body hatred thoughts, and yearns live life joyfully in the body that you have.
But it can be really hard to do this when:
Having self-acceptance and self-compassion feels out of your grasp.
Your family and friends believe that being thinner is better (and have no problem telling you that!)
You turn on the TV or drive down the street and see fatphobia everywhere.
It can feel scary and lonely to walk away from the crowd and decide you’re no longer going to fight with your body.
This is why I offer one-on-one coaching – so you don’t have to do this alone.
As someone who’s been there and gets it, I will walk side-by-side with you as your coach and guide to help you come back home to yourself – the self deep within that knows you are OK (nay - great!) - no matter what your body looks like or weighs.
8-Week Coaching Package
The work of body acceptance isn’t a quick fix (nothing worthwhile or lasting usually is!)
My six-week coaching package is designed to bring you from A to B (or A to C) on your body acceptance journey.
This coaching will give you a jump start along a path that will lead you to living life in alignment with what is most important to you: a life of more confidence, more freedom, and more self-acceptance.
Week 1: The first session is 1 1/2 hours. In this session we lay the groundwork for our next five weeks together. I help you get clear on what is most important to you in your life, and you will come up with a goal(s)/focus to work towards during our time together.
Weeks 2 – 7: Each session is 1 hour, and you direct these sessions. There is no specific “topic” or area I will cover, but we will instead focus on what is most important to you when it comes to your relationship with your body. I will follow up on the goal(s)/focus you set for our time together, but I will also provide space to address and work on what is up for you that week.
Week 8: The last session is 1 hour 15 minutes. In this session, like in previous weeks, we will address what is up for you, however we will also spend time reviewing your goal(s)/focus and reflect on what has shifted for you since the first session. You will come away with a sense of completion, but also with the direction and momentum to move you forward in your body acceptance journey.
Email Support: If at any time in-between sessions you are struggling or looking for additional support, I guarantee you a 24-hour response time with coaching via email.
Investment: $1,150 (CAD dollars) See payment plans in FAQs.
It can be helpful to hear about others experience with the six-week coaching package, so you can read client testimonials here.
I get that investing in ourselves can sometimes feel frivolous, but the thing is – our fixation on our body literally gets in the way of everything else.
When we remove the barrier of body dissatisfaction, we literally create more time, energy, and happiness in our lives.
I also understand it can feel uncomfortable opening up to someone about such a personal topic. That’s why I recommend if you aren’t already, follow me on Instagram or Facebook, and watch my YouTube videos so you can get to know me.
And, because I want to ensure this is going to be the right fit for both of us, I offer a free 30-minute consultation so we can chat and I can answer any questions you may have.
Q. “I don’t really know what a coach is. How is it different than therapy, or just talking to my best friend?”
A. Whereas a therapist will dig into and focus on your past, a coach will support you in creating the future you want for yourself. And while best friends are wonderful, they can be a little biased! A coach is able to remain objective, see things from a perspective that someone close to you simply can’t, and most importantly, is trained in proven methodology and tools to create real change in your life.
Q. “Do you offer payment plans?”
A. Yes. You have the choice to pay fully up front, or in two monthly payments of $600 CAD, or three monthly payments of $400 CAD.
Q. “What happens if I have to miss a session?”
A. Although it’s most effective to do the sessions weekly, life happens, and that’s why we can do the six sessions within an eight-week period. Likewise, if I am unable to commit to a session the following week, our time together will be extended to accommodate.
Q. “I'm a tough case. I’ve battled with my body for what feels like forever. Will six weeks of coaching make much of a difference?”
A. I’m going to be straight with you – working on body acceptance is not a quick fix. Expecting yourself to have a whole new mentality after 20 to 30 years of thinking one way, is a tall order for anyone. Coaching for six weeks won’t take you all the way from A to Z. However, what we will do is begin the process and take the first few important steps on a new, positive path. At the end of the six weeks you will come away feeling better about yourself, more confident in your body, and with tools that you can use in your daily life so that in time, change will be INEVITABLE. And since this is a process, you have the option to continue your coaching with me afterwards in a time frequency that works for you.
Q. “What if I need to cancel after a couple sessions? What is your Cancellation Policy?”
A. I get that life happens and despite best intentions, you may need to cancel. The Cancellation Policy is as follows:
