The reason why I was interested in working with Vania was what I noticed on a Binge Eating Disorder Facebook page! I just felt the way she answered questions and responded was intuitive, knowledgeable, understanding and empowering. Her responses resonated with me and made me feel better about myself and what I was going through and I hadn’t even spoken to her! I did some research and found her Peaceful Eating website.
Before I worked with Vania I was stuck. Although I had made efforts to stop dieting, I still carried that mentality with me. I was binging a lot, confused, frustrated and it all seemed rather hopeless! I was having some very dark days indeed!
With Vania’s help I have learned to find space between my thoughts and actions. I have learned how meditation helps with this. I have learned more about self-care and how essential and simple this can be. I have learned about Intuitive Eating and really how to tune in to my body and listen and importantly, I have learned to recognise my hunger signals and how to find satisfaction. I am still working on this but feel empowered and set free to try things, make mistakes and still be ok. I have learnt to breathe! I have learnt to be much kinder to myself.
“It’s a practise” is what you will hear from Vania. Gone are the days when I am so hard on myself and things have improved immeasurably for me. I am no longer binging, although if it happens it’s no big deal and is there to teach me something. I am much more able to stop eating when I am full and I found learning about the brain and how it works fascinating! I am much more free of thinking about food
non-stop and I feel like less of a failure and more of a human being that I ever have before.
I never felt like there was a timeframe with Vania. We went at my own pace and every session I came away with such rich, personal learning. I am so grateful for that and I miss her!
If you would like to be more at peace with food and yourself, I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Vania’s expertise. She truly is an amazing person to work with and I consider myself so lucky to have found her. She has such knowledge and sensitivity. She seems to have the ability to get to know who you are and has a real skill and thinking of what would work best for you. She makes herself available to you and was able to give me advice and guidance between sessions if I asked.
