This course completely changed my way of thinking about dieting and what we “should” be doing.  I have realised how much society and the media drill into us how we should look, eat and live and how damaging that is.
Diane strips all that away and really focuses on what our minds and bodies really need and want.  I have a long way to go, but I now have the skills on how to get there

I’m extremely glad that I attended this course.  I took some convincing and wasn’t sure this course would help me much.  I was wrong!!  I have learnt so many things that can and will empower me for the future.  I would recommend this course to anyone struggling with food.  You need to learn there is no “good” or “bad” food.

I decided to do this course after going to see Diane about my eating.  It was at a time in my life that had some stressful events going on.  The course allowed me to focus on nourishing myself in order to cope with other situations.  It has helped me think logically about how and what I eat and what I feel about those situations.

Changed the way I view my relationship with food

This course has completely changed the way I view my relationship with food. It has helped me to take a deeper look at how and why I eat. In a safe and non-judgemental environment I have been able to share my experiences with others who are also struggling with food. Dieting and weight loss used to involve a lot of guilt and negativity but not any more. I now have the tools to change my deeply ingrained habitual eating patterns from a place of love and nurturing. I'm the only one that can do it. And I will. Because I'm worth it! You are too!

Diane is a registered dietitian who has also invested enormously in her education in psychology, mindfulness training and the treatment of eating disorders but more importantly invests herself wholeheartedly in helping persons find effective ways to heal from very painful and difficult conditions and disorders. To be effective in these fields takes a great deal more than formal education, even from such distinguished institutions as Oxford.  To effectively help persons with the pain and suffering experienced in these kinds of disorders requires at least a commensurate personal investment in cultivating mindfulness, compassion and loving kindness skills. These skills can only be learned in the cauldrons of human suffering, both in the rawness of our individual lives but also in serving the lives of others. It’s clear to me that Diane has spent a great deal of time in both. 
 
I feel privileged and honoured to offer my recommendation and endorsement of Diane’s new program and would encourage anyone that is seeking help with these difficult conditions to spend time with her and her new program to see for yourself how your personal investment with her can benefit your life.  I’m confident that this is one investment you will happy to have made!

THIS COURSE HELPED ME TOWARDS ACCEPTANCE, RATHER THAN REJECTION

My life has been a rollercoaster.  Married three times, lived in Australia for many years.  Three grown up children, one with drug problems.  Two marriages were violent and abusive. This course has made me feel content and liking myself better.

THIS COURSE HAS STARTED ME ON A JOURNEY OF PERSONAL GROWTH

I got so much out of this course.  It was a bit daunting to be in a course with complete strangers, but as the weeks went on I found that we all had very similar issues. Diane was lovely.  The sessions were all so well thought out, so that the whole course built on the week before....

I got so much out of this course.  It was a bit daunting to be in a course with complete strangers, but as the weeks went on I found that we all had very similar issues. Diane was lovely.  The sessions were all so well thought out, so that the whole course built on the week before.  The course wasn’t about food or dieting.  It was about mindfulness and self-acceptance.  Over the eight weeks, I have found that I am slowly getting to accept myself more.  Not fully there yet, but well on my way.

My self worth has been increased

The first thing this course did for me was acknowledging I wanted change and needed help and actually investing time in my week for my health. Carving out two hours plus travel time was like the first step.

Having the courage to be open and honest in a group setting instead of a private 1 to 1 setting was the second step. Learning to love and give to myself as much as I give to others in my life was a new awareness the course brought to my attention as I was unaware I had stopped caring about my needs and nurturing myself with kindness. I had not realised the negative impact my thoughts and feelings about myself and my body were having on me and my mindset and self worth and self esteem. I would never talk or treat or neglect someone they way I was myself. Making and taking time for me is as important as everything else and everyone else, so the biggest thing I came  away with was the need to be kind and gentle with my self talk and love myself first.

I am now on a new journey

This course for me has started me on a journey that I never thought would be possible, and one that I would recommend to anyone who is struggling in life with emotional eating.  Being in such a beautiful calm setting has helped to open my mind and heart to be aware of where I am at

I enjoyed the course to the extent that I have advertised it in my hair salon.  I feel empowered and like a flower that is opening up and ready to bloom.  This is a journey and a new path to travel.  For me, it is the beginning of living my life differently.  Being mindful and with the skills and tools that I have been able to receive from this course, I can use them every day.  I want to live life to the full and be all that God wants me to be.
