√ You think about food constantly – even when you’re not hungry.
√ You gorge on food and prefer to eat in secret.
√ You believe that when you hit your goal weight you’ll be happy and life can finally start.
√ You feel that if you weighed less you will automatically be more worthy in other areas of your life.
√ You feel like you are addicted to food.
√ You’ve tried every diet under the sun and while you are able to lose weight, you struggle to keep it off.

√ You find it hard to enjoy exercise.
Maybe you love exercise and how it makes you feel but you still don’t seem to do it.
Hi, my name is Eugenia. I am the founder of MindFoodNess – Eating Psychology Clinic. I started my own praxis, after I healed from an Eating Disorder of over 10 years, to enable my clients to get to the root cause of their issues around food and their body. In a sector dominated by fads and quick fixes, I wanted to adopt a deep and scientific approach to resolving food issues that would enable my clients to achieve permanent change.
When we address the underlying issues, we heal the root cause of pain. This line of work excites me as I too have experienced transformation in my life.
This is when you get to feel alive….
When you have lasting energy. When the inner critic and cravings no longer control your life. When you can go out to eat, throw on a dress without a second thought, and overcome the impulse to binge.
Here you learn to respect every single inch of your body. Where you enjoy food. Where you enjoy life.
In this space you are free.
We are on a mission to turn the diet industry around and help people to break free
– break free from dieting, self-hatred, addictions and self-medication with food and other destructive behaviours around food and body!
We help you make permanent changes in the way you eat, think, feel and move. We believe the only way to permanently change how you eat is to look at WHY, HOW, WHAT and WHEN you eat.
Our approach is different to any other nutritionists/psychologists or therapists out there because we won’t just recommend:
People’s issues with food come in all shapes and sizes. Yet there is one thing that these issues all have in common – there is some psychological pattern driving them – causing you to repeat the same cycle over and over again. At MindFoodNess we understand what drives these repetitive and destructive patterns – and can help you to reverse the unhealthy habits of a lifetime – for good.
Reversing unhealthy patterns – freeing you to lead a happy and healthy life.

We use a range of techniques to help you to make permanent changes!
There is so much contradictory nutritional information publicly available that it can be difficult to know exactly what nutritional changes would really benefit your health.
In a sector dominated by fads and quick fixes, it can be tempting to follow the latest “diet plan” or food craze. However these quick fixes rarely provide a long-term solution. Our recommendations are based on non-diet, intuitive eating and gentle nutrition approach ensuring that you can make permanent changes that come easily and naturally to you.
So often we eat in a rush, at our desks, on the train or in front of the television, that we do not even notice just how much we are eating.
In a society that has too much to do, too many deadlines to meet and no time to just sit and enjoy food – it is no wonder that so many people have disordered eating. We use techniques derived from meditation and mindfulness practices to help you to become more aware of what and how much you are eating. When you are able to respond to your body’s natural cues and needs, you will find that disordered eating is no longer an issue.
NLP is a tool which enables individuals to alter subconscious behaviours.
Anyone that drives or dances will know that they do not perform these actions through conscious thinking – these activities are often performed in auto-pilot mode, once an individual has had enough practice. Much in the same way a lot of people’s eating habits are just behaviours they perform in auto-pilot mode. Reaching for biscuits when you are stressed or ice-cream when you are sad, is just an automatic subconscious response. NLP can be used to change these subconscious behaviours so that you can regain control over your decisions around food.
CBT is an exploratory form of talking therapy which enables individuals to investigate the drivers behind their choices.
For us CBT and Acceptace and Commitment Therapy go hand in hand. This approach can be used to help you to determine why you are making certain food choices. You can uncover exactly what is triggering your disordered eating and then work to alter your responses to these triggers.
CBT, ACT and Mindfulness are also used to resolve any stress/anxiety/depression that may be underlying your eating condition.
Imagine a life where food is enjoyed, not a drug used for comfort or to stifle boredom. End the war with your body and food, rediscover gratitude for food and the energy it provides: being active with your kids or grandchildren, traveling, tramping, swimming at the beach and everything else you usually avoid. A life free from constant worry about how much you ate, what your body looks like and what other people might think.
Imagine a life of FREEDOM, CONFIDENCE, EMPOWERMENT AND FUN.
Most therapists do not understand nutrition and most nutritionists do not understand psychology. I have background and knowledge in both and have been able to successfully help my clients to resolve their issues around food for the long-term.
Experience 1:1 coaching sessions to overcome food, body and self-esteem concerns. I specialize in binge eating, emotional eating, overeating, food cravings, and body image obsession.
Group coaching and online programs to free you from endless cycle of overeating, self-sabotage, shame and guilt. Discover what’s really driving your overeating and binge eating and heal from the inside out. Learn how to enjoy your favorite food and eliminate the urge to overeat or binge. We help you identify the root cause to your unhealthy eating patterns – why you can’t stop eating though you are already full – to help you reverse this behavior. Take back control to create a balanced, more relaxed, and carefree relationship with food.
