Recovery

Recovery 101

2019 marks my 10 year anniversary of recovery from bulimia.

Since I launched my business, the number one question I get asked in my free intro sessions is, what tools did you use for your recovery.

So here they are!

Addiction for me was like living in a mental prison every moment of every day that I couldn't find any peace from. Nothing soothed it. No matter how much chocolate, lollies or sugar I consumed, there was no ongoing relief. The sugar gave me 10mins of relief maybe, but then the guilt, shame, humiliation, negative self talk would start again. It was endless mindless chatter of my unworthiness and it was endless. No amount of exercise was enough, no amount of sex with random strangers ever soothed it, no matter amount of shopping eased it. It was just additional fuel.

Nothing anyone said helped..

Addiction is by far the hardest thing I have ever experienced

According to Lifeline, addiction is described as

“a physical and/or psychological need to use a substance, often caused by regular continued use. Some substances are more highly addictive than others. Some people are more likely to become addicted to a substance depending on mental, physical and lifestyle factors.”

Addiction for me was like living in a mental prison every moment of every day that I couldn’t find any peace from.

Nothing soothed it. No matter how much chocolate, lollies or sugar I consumed, there was no ongoing relief. The sugar gave me 10mins of relief maybe, but then the guilt, shame, humiliation, negative self talk would start again.

I would spend my days counting every calorie consumed and every calorie burned during my 4-6 hours of exercise so that I could ensure that there was never any weight gain.

Weight gain meant I was weak, flawed, imperfect and unlovable.

It was constant mindless chatter of my unworthiness. It never eased.

No amount of exercise was enough, no amount of sex with random strangers ever soothed it, no matter amount of shopping eased it. It was just additional fuel.

Nothing anyone said helped..

The self loathing was a constant…

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no 1:1 coaching sessions within the program unless you paid in full. The weekly Facebook Lives are Q&A’s so is a form of group coaching as everyone will learn something from everybody else.

This program is purely practical steps only to support you on your journey of recovery from any form of eating disorder.

If you are looking only for support in healing body image, please refer to my program The Body Love Experience.

At this stage, I plan on running the program as a live round, three times a year. 

The program will be available for purchase post the first live round of the program so can be undertaken at anytime post June 2019.
