Reclaim Your Life from Food
Experience up to an 95% reduction in your binge eating, sugar addiction or compulsive behaviour around food without feeling deprived or bad about yourself
I had had a problem binge eating for almost 20 years when I started working with Harriet. I had coaching from some very well-respected practitioners, but I saw very little change. In 12 weeks, I have experienced a real transformation in my mindset around this problem. The check ins and extra email support really kept my spirits up. I now only eat chocolate occasionally, and eat more pleasurable replacements. But more importantly, I don’t pin the old emotions (guilt, shame) to the eating.Sally Bolton Manchester, UK
In this powerful 12-week programme, we will dismantle the core of your eating problem using a whole host of strategies: nutritional changes, simple neuroscience, reframing your self sabotage and highly practical techniques - to name but a few. We will weaken this force (using a range of crafty and creative techniques) so it loses its ability to control you. Result: you get your life back. This is about so much more than your eating.
The 4 Paths To Freedom From Food
#1 Retrain Your Brain To Divert Cravings...and bypass willpower
Imagine having no cravings - how much easier would it be to avoid those powerfully addictive binge foods which create that overwhelming and destructive desire in you?
I cannot promise you that you will never experience them again. Instead, let me offer you a much more realistic possibility: that you can learn how to prevent a good deal of cravings in the first place, and then to divert that cravings energy into something harmless, even when you feel utterly compulsive. The great news here is that none of this requires any willpower - there are far more creative and powerful strategies at your disposal. Let me introduce them to you, and coach you into finding the best ones for you.
It certainly has felt more sustainable, mainly because you can feel a difference in yourself almost straight away – not just physically, but mentally stronger. I now do not have migraines (which literally were disabling my life). No doctor had been able to help me for 3 years. I feel amazing, full of life and health. I sleep properly and am no longer angry and depressed, I feel like a new person. I have lost 3 stone, and my confidence and self esteem are though the roof! Thanks to Harriet for helping me change me life.Fran Hansen Shrewsbury, UK
#2 Free Yourself From Sugar...and other mood hijacker foods
You know that there are certain foods you always turn to when the binge compulsion strikes. Sugar is the most common, but there are others. What they all have in common is that for many people they are what I call mood hijacker foods. They create mood swings, PMT, fatigue, brain fog and other unnecessary side effects that could be seriously affecting your confidence and quality of life.
I will show you how to liberate yourself from them using both nutritional and practical techniques as well as transformational reframing that completely changes the meaning of this challenge for you and reconnects you to your real power.
If short term dietary quick fixes and wishy washy positive thinking have failed you, let me work with you to turn this struggle into an adventure. The most important one of your life.
The coaching made me think about things in a different way. It has made me take action on playing more badminton, which I really love. With my eating, I was labouring under the illusion that getting up late and only eating 2 meals would help me lose weight – now I understand the science behind why the opposite is true. The sessions were really useful in that they gave me space to think about what I can do that will really impact my health. Harriet is very good at teasing out connections and making sense of my behavior around food and exercise and gently offering suggestions of things I might try.Richard Smart Brighton, UK
#3 Turn Off Emotional Eating...by flipping the 5 happiness switches in your brain
There are 2 ways to avoid emotional, comfort and stress eating: D.O.S.E.R. and postive channeling.
What is D.O.S.E.R? Have you ever had a hug from a friend you haven't seen that brightened up a lonely day, or got some good news in an otherwise difficult week, or despaired at why you only ever seem to enjoy life when you are on holiday? You believe that these feel good moments are at the mercy of external triggers (your friend, the good news or the holiday). This is dead wrong. You have an inbuilt feelgood factory in your brain, ready and waiting RIGHT NOW to produce genuine lifts in your mood and outlook.
You can take complete control of the 5 happiness switches that I collectively call DOSER, and do a huge amount to not only prevent emotional, comfort and stress eating - but also to improve your daily life. What are you waiting for?
What is Positive Channeling? The popular belief about emotions is that we would all be happier if we could ignore those pesky devils anger, shame, fear etc. The truth is that we have turned these uncomfortable emotions into monsters (and so made them more powerful than they need be) because we do not understand how they can actually HELP us be happier.
The solution is to positively channel them and so get them to dissipate naturally, which is as a learnable skill as the ability to read the words on this page. If you are sick of the time you spend feeling bad about feeling bad, these strategies will be a game changer for you.
Harriet broke down the process of tackling my sugar addiction so I could do it in an effortless way, a day at a time. Her replacements made all the difference. I haven’t given it up completely, but cutting down on it has changed my life. It released a tidal wave of creativity and potential. I’ve left the financial hell I’d created and have been able to reframe my abusive childhood using tools Harriet taught me. I am no longer living caught up in the past.Alison Rowanna Shropshire,UK
#5 Neutralise Your Guilt and Shame...and get your life back
Guilt and shame are crippling. Imagine how much easier it would be to achieve eating change if you could get rid of them permanently? The key here is to understand that they have a misguided function: they really want to help you, but are doing it in a way that not only doesn't work, but actually makes you miserable.
Neutralising guilt and shame is all about looking at your inner resistance not as an enemy waiting in the wings in an invisibility cloak to ambush our best laid plans, but as something we have a choice to give in to or not. Once you start to use specific strategies to empower yourself to make the best choice, you can move through your challenges not as a struggling survivor, but a thriving adventurer. Your eating becomes a tool to help you reclaim your life.
Do you want to walk past the dessert aisle without obsessing... but be able to enjoy any food in moderation - and press the stop button in your head when YOU want to?

What's the next step?
In less than a month, Harriet was able to coach me so I was able to overcome the negative habit of overeating at night. The changes she helped me make have been sustained and I am so happy with the resulting weight loss that is still happening! She really understands the complex subject of the psychology of eating and is able to give that over in a fun and compelling way that creates lasting change.Neil Rischall New York
I had an awareness of my issues around food before I worked with Harriet, but it didn’t translate into real change. For years I used food to deal with stress and upset. Resisting the junk both at home and at work functions was really hard.
This coaching has more flexibility and uses a range of ideas and tools than other approaches I have tried where one single quick fix was sold as the answer, like hypnosis.
In the last 6 weeks since starting, I have avoided sugar many times, even on flights and at conferences where there is just endless amounts of the stuff. I am exercising more and my clothes are now looser. It is great to say no and actually feel stronger and better about myself.
I used to use food to deal with my stress, especially sugar and simple carbs. I had the capacity to eat uncontrollably. Within a couple of weeks of starting the coaching, I gained better clarity, learnt new tools to manage my stress and felt much more mindful day to day. This, in turn, had a positive impact on not only my eating habits but also my general well being.Client
I have reduced my overall sugar consumption significantly by the tools that Harriet taught me. I am much more able to relax and my adrenals are better. I used to spend much of the day in a state of stress and those feeling have significantly reduced. I have developed resilience and the ability to seek uncomfortable, scary change for positive results. I am more consistent with healthy habits like yoga and other simple daily routines.
I have made fundamental, long-lasting progress with Harriet's help.
