Hello and welcome to my website!

Are you…

  • constantly judging how you look?
  • worrying about what other people think of your appearance?
  • rarely, if ever, feeling like your body measures up?
  • spending a lot of time, energy and money on trying to improve and/or maintain your appearance?
  • feeling too insecure about your body to enjoy dating, romance or intimacy?
  • fed up with feeling unattractive and unworthy of love?

If so, you’ve come to the right place!

You see, I understand exactly how you feel and what you’re going through. Because that was me too. I spent 30 years of my life judging my appearance harshly. I was highly critical of the way I looked and monitored my weight obsessively. No matter what I did, I always had the sense that I wasn't 'there' yet.

The whole problem weighed me down. It felt like it was the depressing soundtrack to my life, and something I’d never escape from. I tried so hard to make my body look attractive, and wasted a lot of time, energy and money in the process. All I wanted was to feel beautiful, and therefore loveable, but the end goal always seemed to elude me.

One of the worst things about it was that it completely messed up my relationship with food and led to decades of all kinds of disordered eating. And I didn’t even realise that it was my harsh judgment of my body that was the root cause of my difficulties with eating. I just thought I was greedy and had to work hard to control myself.

My obsession with my looks affected every area of my life, and I often felt insecure and depressed as a result. There were even times when I thought that death would be the only way out of this suffering. Because I’d struggled so long and had tried and failed to recover so many times, I thought that this problem was a part of my identity, and something I’d never be free from.

But I’m happy to say that I was totally wrong about that – it’s a very good thing to be wrong sometimes! – and a few years ago I fully healed in this area. I now hardly ever think about what I look like, let alone worry about it! And I’ve never been happier. My eating problems are a thing of the past. These days my relationship with food is easy, natural and problem-free, just as it was when I was a little girl before any dysfunction set in.

And without the preoccupation with my looks and food draining my energy, I now have so much more time to devote to enjoying life, trying out new things and treasuring being with people I love.

I now feel secure in the way I look, not because I conform to all the bogus ‘beauty’ standards that get shoved down our throats throughout our lives, but because I realise, deep down, that real beauty can never be reduced to any metric. It is simply what we see when we observe the world through the lens of love.

Freedom is your birth right. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve struggled with these problems, or how severely they've affected you, please rest assured that you can get better. You can wake up from the nightmare, and go on to live a fulfilling, enjoyable life.
