Empowering you to break free from dieting and rediscover the joy in eating

Hi there, I’m Áine, an intuitive eating counsellor and wellbeing coach based in the West Midlands. I discovered intuitive eating after many years of yoyo dieting, not trusting my body and trying my best to get my body to a weight and shape that it didn’t want to be.

I went from repeating the same cycle of diets which lead to emotional eating, binge eating episodes, hormonal imbalances, and a constant obsession about my weight, to making peace with food, being completely free from rules and restrictions and working with my body’s natural weight (not against it).

I now truly enjoy food, and exercise because it makes me feel good, not to burn calories. I never choose foods because I ‘should’ or ‘shouldn’t’, but because I now understand what feels good in my body, and as a result my body settles around it’s natural, set point weight range, without me forcing it to be there.

Learning and fully accepting that my natural weight was more than my mind wanted it to be, was a big step in my intuitive eating journey.

Even though rediscovering your intuitive eater and letting go of the familiarity of dieting can feel scary at first, I can honestly say it has been the best thing I have ever done to improve my health, and I’m so excited to help you do the same!

As the world around us starts to burst with the vibrant colors of spring, it's a perfect time for some introspection and renewal, especially when it comes to our relationship with food. 🌸 As someone who's passionate about intuitive eating, I'm excited to invite you to join me in embracing the energy of this season to foster a more mindful and nurturing connection with the way we eat.

Just as we freshen up our homes with a little spring cleaning, let's refresh our minds and bodies by letting go of the diet mentality and restrictions, and instead, bloom into a more intuitive way of nourishing ourselves.

In my latest blog post, I share four simple yet powerful ways you can kickstart this transformative journey. Check it out here: https://www.aineharkin.com/renewing-your-relationship-with-food-this-spring/
