Hi, I’m Liz, as a counsellor, professional supervisor, coach, workshop facilitator and certified Body Trust® provider candidate, my passion is walking alongside people as they tap into their intuitive selves connecting to inner wisdom and moving beyond the stories of how life ‘should’ be.

I work with people who experience grief, depression, anxiety, panic/stress, overwhelm and who may feel lost.  Please see Work with Liz – Counselling

I specialize in working with adults and youth who experience disordered eating: Binge Eating Disorder (BED), compulsive overeating, chronic dieting and/or challenges with body image/body acceptance.  I support people who are ready to heal their relationship with food and their body.  People who are ready to leave the diet culture behind, who want to reclaim the world of ‘normal’ eating. Please see Work with Liz – Body Trust Coaching. 

If you are not ready YET for this and struggling with anorexia, bulimia,  I can connect you with other therapists.

Congratulations on being curious about what is possible for you.  It takes one small step at a time and as you are reading this you are already on your way.  I would love to walk alongside you for this part of your journey.

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy – A values led Life

These are the times that ACT reminds me to accept what cannot be changed, change what can and have the knowledge to know the difference. Using mindfulness allows thoughts to pass, it has been really hard at this time and I have lost count yesterday of how many times I did this, but I did, I really did not want to be with the uncomfortable feelings, hence the distraction tactics above but needed to  be with real feelings and then continually come back to what I was doing, back to my values. 

D.E.E.P. Body Trust® – Values & Beliefs – Manifesto

Body Trust® Be Nourished.org is a radical, authentic paradigm with such integrity in providing services to those who are ready to heal their relationship with food and their body.  People who are ready to leave the diet culture behind, who want to reclaim the world of ‘normal’ eating.

Embodiment – What does it mean?

I am so grateful for Body Trust® and Be Nourished.org which is radical in its approach only because it is about truth and justice and the reality of who we are.  How can that be radical? If it means having better relationships with ourselves, our bodies, food and each other, then bring it on.  You and I, all of us are worthy of that and what a far better world it will be to live in.  You only need to start with you. There is a whole community that is growing world wide.
