Food Life Freedom Values



Do you feel in a fight with your body?

Many people find themselves trapped in a diet cycle, experiencing binge eating, emotional eating, overeating and fighting against their body. It's draining spending so much time stressing about food and your body.

What if I told you it doesn't have to be this way?

We know why diets don't work. Even more, we know why diets cause a poor relationship with food.

At Food Life Freedom, we don't believe in food rules, there's no "good" or "bad" and guilt does not belong in eating. Food is food and serves to nourish your body and your life. You are supported to heal your relationship with food so eating to feel good in your body becomes stress-free.

Check below to see if you are stuck in the dieting cycle ⬇️

We're breaking down diet culture

Our diet culture normalises disordered eating, stressing over food and hating our bodies. The messages in our world tell us health and happiness comes from eating perfectly and attaining an ideal body. But this is not true.

Diet culture worships thinness but body diversity is completely normal and healthy

Diet culture tells you weight loss makes you more worthy but weight or body changes are not attached to worth

Diet culture demonises certain foods but all foods fit in a healthy and balanced life

Diet culture oppresses people and this leads to discrimination and inequality

Diet culture normalises a distrust with your body but your body is your most accurate guide

Diet culture normalises guilt, shame and fear of foods but eating should be enjoyable and support you living your life

We can break down diet culture by addressing the pyramid of human need.

Health, happiness, energy and wellbeing do not come from denying your body's most basic needs. We must fuel our body with the physical and emotional resources it needs so we can feel our best.

We work to reframe unhelpful thoughts and disrupt unhelpful behaviours that are stopping you being able to get your physical and emotional needs met. Then you build connection with your own body's hunger, fullness, self care and emotional cues so eating and caring for your body comes naturally, without stress.

Facts about me


  • I moved to the UK in 2015 for a short stay and just never left. Although I grew up in Australia I also have family in the UK so I feel at home here as well.
  •  Sometimes you will find me in Uganda. My partner moved there in 2021 and I’m currently spending my time split between the UK and Uganda.
  • Spending time in green (or blue) space  is important for my mental health. I often break up my days with a walk in the local park or along the canal and I love weekends away in the mountains.
  • I love all sorts of food but the foods I miss if they are not available are my basic everyday things like cheddar cheese and grainy bread.
  • My current favourite way to “read” is with an audiobook - I particularly love listening to an audio book while walking in a park. 

Now I'd love to learn about you!
