Covid-19 lockdown may affect your stress levels, your behaviours, and even how you cope with uncertain times. When we encounter a stressor, we seek out activities we trust. The lockdown has a two-fold impact on stress. Not only is it a source of stress but it also blocks our access to our usual social support systems leaving us less resourced to cope. Stress hormones are released, activating intense visceral sensations as blood moves to the muscles.
Our heart rate and blood pressure rise. We feel anxious, fearful, restless and tense. Our frontal lobes go offline; we struggle to think
creatively or plan effectively. Our behaviour can become frantic and disorganised.
In trying to cope with these feelings in lockdown, habits such as smoking, substance use and binge eating may creep in.

I am very passionate about helping women like you to find the hidden reasons for emotional eating and binge eating so that they can finally lose weight but not by going on another diet, but through healing their relationship with food, body and themselves.
My work has been featured in print media like NEXT, Stuff.co.nz, Good Healthy Choices and Now To Love and I have been interviewed for Radio Live where I was talking about binge eating and other food related problems.
My passion comes from my own experience of many years of eating disorders, dieting, emotional eating and body hatred. I’m now on a mission to empower others to end their battle with their body, food and ultimately themselves by addressing the underlying cause of their pain.
