Our Passion For Positive Body Image
We help women who have low self-esteem and body image, feel more confidence within themselves and develop a healthy and positive self-image.
Hi there, my name is Julie and I’ve been helping women feel better about their bodies for more than 18 years now. It’s an area I love to support women around because I understand what it’s like to feel hate towards your body.
For me it started when I was 11 years old. As my body started to change and develop, I was criticised. I felt self-conscious and embarrassed and I hated people looking at me. I worried what they were thinking. I thought that by fixing, hiding or covering up my “imperfections” I would avoid criticism and judgement.
I thought if I had the “perfect” body, one that was considered “good enough” or “acceptable”, then I would be happy. Unfortunately, no amount of “fixing” made me love my body or feel a sense of freedom in it. Sure, I had moments of feeling better and feeling confident, but inevitably it faded and I would return to hating my body again. I did this cycle for many years and eventually I became tired of it.
The cost of trying to be “perfect” or “good enough” had cost me my self-confidence and self-esteem. I was my own worst critic and I never felt truly comfortable in my own skin.
This was the turning point for me. I realised I couldn’t find acceptance and love outside, I had to find it within myself.
I became so curious about wanting to understand how our thoughts and emotions drive the decisions and choices we make. How they determine how we think and feel about ourselves, about our bodies. How much our mind limits our potential. If we can understand our mind and redefine our self-perception, we can create the life and body we want. We can learn to truly love and value who we are.
This is the journey I take my clients on. We work together to reach a place of self-love and self-acceptance by honouring the mind and body.
From this place there is an opportunity to go on a new path to reconnect to who we are, redesign who we want to be, and rediscover our true potential.
