Overcome disordered eating and find peace with food
Summer body love
by Harriet Frew on June 10th, 2014

 In recent weeks SO many of my clients have commented on the weather. On the one hand they feel happy to finally feel the summer sun! The fabulous thing about being British – that we have an amplified appreciation of the sun’s appearance. And what a difference a bit of sunshine makes to mood, enthusiasm and feelings of goodwill and contentment :)
But if you have issues with food and feel bad about your body, then this time of year can bring on truckloads of anxiety.  When summer finally arrives your immediate thoughts might focus on bearing your skin (or not); and noticing others looking attractive and comfortable in their bodies. They already seem to be embracing the new summer fashions and being radiant and confident. Of course this is very frustrating when you’re feeling unattractive and your relationship with food is a miserable one. Maybe you are wondering if it really could ever be any different.
Of course, you could always decide to step into summer in the way that you always have. Ride the rollercoaster of holidays, on the beach and al-fresco dining with trepidation and then self-loathing as you swing between dieting and over-indulgence. Maybe you are feeling anxious about what to wear and comparing your body to others? Maybe you are hiding away from enjoying the sun because you feel so bad?
Perhaps you are about to embark on a new diet with renewed hope and enthusiasm that this might just be the one. Or perhaps you have had enough. Maybe you are ready to DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT and step into summer whilst changing your relationship with food and your body forever. And guess what, I would love to help you do this.
