Say Goodbye to Binge Eating

A 12-week  adventure where you stop getting food to live your life for you and discover resilience you never knew you had. 

Is This You?

Food is your number one go-to when you're feeling low, angry, depressed or frustrated

You feel guilty for emotionally eating but feel powerless to do anything about it

You have a fear of getting hungry

You have no idea how to manage difficult feelings

You hate yourself for sabotaging your health goals

Welcome to Release.
By the end, you will have:

Learnt to regulate your emotions

Instead of seeing difficult emotions as triggers for binge eating and mental pests to be squashed, you will have a toolkit for understanding, channelling and releasing them - safely and without overwhelm. You will liberate yourself from the pressure to solve your feelings.

Reduced your appetite

Unhook food from your feelings. Meal by meal you will have a range of strategies to stay present when you eat. And when this happens, you digest your food better. You truly nourish yourself. You eat less, but you enjoy food more.

Transformed how you see yourself

Welcome to the programme where you feel better about yourself from day one - not when you have achieved success. We will put a gagging order on your inner critic. Goodbye deprivation, punishing restriction and never being enough. Hello curiosity, neutrality and celebrating every imperfect success.

"Undoing 25 years of binge eating habits and coping mechanism is very challenging work. However, it's rewarding, insightful and progressive - but because of Harriet it's also FUN!"

Louise Mitchell, UK

So...How  Will  This  Programme  Impact  You?

Before you complete Release :

You can't deal with difficult emotions without comfort eating

You feel guilty for sabotaging your health with sugar and other junk, which makes you sabotage even more
It seems like food is more powerful than you when you are under stress

You wish you weren't so damn emotional - you see yourself as one hot mess of feelings

You wish you were stronger

Emotional eating is your life manager, which means that overeating is the norm and binge eating a regular occurence. You blame yourself.

After you've completed Release :

You have a set of tools to help you channel and release uncomfortable feelings

You now understand the hidden reasons for that sabotage and have developed neutrality around your mistakes, which weakens the need to self-sabotage
You see emotional eating as an understandable but ineffective coping mechanism, which you have replaced with healthier life strategies. You own your power.
You understand that all emotions are messengers, and have learnt to manage them without eating them. You start feeling sorry for people with a repressed, stiff upper lip way of living (if you can call it living)
Because you allow yourself to experience life directly instead of ask food to mediate for you, you accept yourself and embrace the 90% beats perfection principle. You become an awesome role model for younger people in your life.

Having put food out of the job of life manager, you eat less and start running - not walking - towards your health goals. You realise you never were to blame in the first place. Life gets easier AND the field of possibility opens up for you.

"I have tried so many diets and cleanses and have never achieved as much as success as I have doing Harriet's programme. I feel incredibly empowered."

Jessica Romrell, health coach

Why do I think I can help you?

Instead of the usual "I am perfect and if you aspire to be me the perfection is assured" bio you usually find, I thought it would be more useful to give you my warts-and-all mini bio.

Early 80s to 2011 - Harriet spends 3 decades of her life from the onset of adolescence to the age of 40 as a compulsive, binge eating emotional eater whose best friend is sugar.

2011 - starts working with her mind and doing experiments to tackle binge eating with some success

2012 - motivated by PMS that made her feel demented, Harriet does a one month experiment giving up 95% of her sugar consumption. It changes her life and she never goes back.

2013 Trains in eating psychology and starts coaching binge eaters and sugar addicts.

2017 Starts The Eating Coach podcast. Over 200,000 downloads to date.

2020 Everything falls apart as she tries to meets everyone else's needs in lockdown. Becomes compulsive and ashamed.

2021 Turns 50 and tells the truth in her podcast. Starts developing the concept of eating presence and get curious about this renewed exploration into her compulsion a decade after the original one.

The shame she thought she had lost with her sugar addiction starts to actually dissolve. Her boundaries strengthen and she stops wasting energy on people who used to drain her. 

She has a more empowered sense of how she can show up in the world. Loses weight. She still has to shed more to meet her health goals, but she commits to be the change she wants to see for compulsive eaters everywhere.

These adventurers can't be wrong!

More Confident & Happy

"I’ve learnt a lot, not only about food but about myself and I feel a much happier person because of it. Many thanks for everything.


Nicole Anslow Milward

"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

" I have had 100% success giving up biscuits and chocolate since going through this process 2 months ago. Ideas like The Double Dare have made social situations a place to actually feel empowered around food – the other day I was at someone’s house, stood near the cake and  didn’t have any!

This Programme Isn't For Everyone

This is PERFECT for you if...

You will be happy with a 90% (not 100%) reduction in emotional eating. You know that perfectionism will destroy your confidence.
You love the idea of challenging your beliefs through experimenting with new approaches.
You want help motivating yourself to meal plan. You are ready to reclaim control of what you eat and experiment. You are OK using this programme as a time to defocus on calorie counting and the scales, because both of these can make you feel so bad.

You are genuinely interested in how emotional eating is a coping mechanism and you are excited by what a weight off that understanding could be for you. You are sick of feeling this bad about yourself.
You understand that progress is not always smooth and that there will be times when this is an uncomfortable process. That is OK, because you are in a pretty bad place now and are ready to swap that never ending pain for discomfort that has a shelf life and liberates you.

This is NOT for you if...

You demand perfection

You are set in your ways 

You want a programme that tells you exactly what to eat and provides you with set meal plans, a diet etc. You want to discuss calorie counting and weight loss in the Facebook group.

You just want to stop ruining your diet and have no interest in understanding why you might have had some misguided need to comfort and stress eat.

You demand a smooth, linear reduction in your emotional eating from week one that makes you feel better every day.
