About my work:
My name is Karen Thorne and I am the creator of The Conscious Eater Programme: Changing your thoughts about food to transform your body and your life.
Many of my clients followed the ‘eat less and exercise more’ public health recommendations, including myself, and were frustrated when they lost weight but couldn’t maintain it. I have been a chronic dieter for many years, having used food and exercise to control my weight. It is clearly evident that this method does not work. After years of fighting with my body, we are now at peace. We are best friends.
What makes this work special:
I bring a fresh new approach to understanding by teaching you how to have a positive relationship with food. I don’t see your eating challenges merely as a sign that “something is wrong with you” – but as a place where we can more fully explore some of the personal dimensions in life that impact food, weight and health.
Often, our eating challenges are connected to work, money, relationship, family, intimacy, life stress and so much more. By working on the places that are most relevant for you, success is more easily achieved.
The skills I use are a combination of:
With this, I bring a positive and compassionate approach to challenges with food and health. Because of my extensive health education, health psychology and holistic therapy skills, I offer a fresh approach. By eliminating all the “shoulds and shouldn’ts”, I focus on what’s right for your body and your personal style.
