Do any of these sound like you?

  • You are tired of constantly obsessing about food
  • You want to live your life without calorie counting and measuring your portions
  • You have been stuck in the same binge-restrict cycle and are ready to let this go
  • You are done with losing and gaining the same weight over and over
  • You want to be able to look in the mirror without feeling hurt and shame
  • You've decided to stop dieting but don't know how to eat without rules
  • You want food to support (not control) you in living your life to the fullest
  • You are ready to truly let go of dieting without losing control
  • You want to break the dieting cycle so the next generation of women can feel empowered in their bodies

Do you wish you could just feel "normal" around food, to trust your body to know what to eat and to stop when you have had enough? But you can't imagine that could ever be you...

You can and deserve to have this easy relationship with food, I can help get you there.

How does it work?

I use a specialised evidence-based framework called Intuitive Eating combined with personalised and professional counselling to get you to a place where you...

Feel confident in your body

Fearlessly look at yourself in the mirror, show up at events with confidence and trust that you and your body are on the same team.

Stop stressing over food

Ditch the good and bad food rhetoric and include food variety. Food will become a peaceful, and even enjoyable, part of your life.

Never diet again

Working with your body will give you freedom for your passions, career, family and everything else dieting has stolen from you.

As women we are raised to feel our most important goal in life is to shrink our body.

I'm calling this out because dieting is stealing our lives away. We all deserve to show up in life as the strong and confident women we really are when we are free of obsessing over food and our bodies.

What do you get from the Empowered Women Academy?

Meet Emma Townsin

Hi, I'm Emma! I'm a Registered Dietitian, a Certified Intuitive Eating Counsellor and a woman who has broken free of the dieting rules I was raised to follow.

As women we are raised to stay small and believe our biggest goal in life is shrinking ourselves. I'm calling this out because dieting is stealing our lives.

I created the Empowered Women Academy to empower all women to break free of diets and body shame so we can live our lives to the fullest.

The most common barrier that stops women finding food and life freedom is the fear of letting go...

Dieting can feel like our safe place. When we live in a world that creates shame over women's bodies and places morality over our food choices, dieting can be our response to stop the blame and hurtful comments. It's a difficult place to move away from.

But how is dieting really helping you? If dieting is not making you feel confident and supporting you to live your life to the fullest, then you're allowed to let it go.

My coaching as part of the Empowered Women Academy will help you work through the fear of letting go, speak to friends and family about what you need (and how dieting really hurts you) and I will advocate for you with your healthcare team.


With the right support you can let go of dieting without losing control around food

Empowered Women Academy


Using an Intuitive Eating framework and professional counselling , the program is designed to guide, support and challenge you to build trust with your body and grow into the confident woman you are. 

During the 12 weeks we will:

  • Reframe your mindset. You cannot move toward a goal you are not clear on and you cannot look after a body you don't respect. We will start by getting clarity here.
  • Remove deprivation. Restricting food leads to your body compensating with powerful biological and psychological drives. This is why diets don't work and this is why we will remove food rules.
  • Work with your body. You're innate eating signals are there. That's why you feel in a fight with your body. But you will learn to trust and understand your body's drives for a peaceful and easy relationship.
  • Allow Mindfulness and pleasure. Allowing satisfaction is a basic evolutionary need. We work on allowing food pleasure while understanding and coping with emotions in healthful ways.
  • Move forward. This is a long term strategy, not a quick fix. We explore how movement and healthy eating can fit joyfully and peacefully into your life without rigid rules.

When you join the Empowered Women Academy you get:

  • Immediate access to the orientation and getting started course
  • 8 video modules including 24+ videos, designed to build on each other and develop your skills for lifelong food freedom
  • 30+ exploration-based worksheets to dive deeper into your personal relationship with food and body
  • Real-world guided practical activities so you can integrate this work quickly into your life
  • 3 guided audio meditations to cope through emotional eating moments
  • Private 1-to-1 counselling with Emma, your Registered Dietitian and Certified Intuitive Eating Counsellor
