I have felt a total shift in my well-being – I have gone from feeling really “stuck” to feeling like I can cope with things to come. I am now kinder to myself and understand why I act the way I do. The information was clear and concise, not overwhelming, and easy to digest. Participating in this program felt like a very safe way to learn about myself and what steps to take to get to a healthier place.

Highly recommended – a very supportive and encouraging environment that can lead to lasting change. I have a greater understanding now of how my brain and body work. Also, an ability to treat myself more gently with regard to expectations. I am more enthusiastic about eating to nourish my body and exercising more and on top of that I’m working to make things fun rather than a responsibility. A fantastic program.
