Procrastination – I’ll do it later

You’ll like this – and you may well empathise.. I started this post with the headline, which is unusual for me.  Usually, I write the content and then do the headline.  However, on this occasion, I thought the headline was a simple prompt that would lead naturally to the content.  And it did.

35 years of binge eating…then this

I wanted to share (with permission) a fabulous email I received this week – unedited – about one person’s experience with one of my online programmes. (Thanks, Robyn!)

How I became the ‘Go To’ Expert for Binge Eating

Not a lot of people know how I became known as the ‘go to’ expert for binge eating and disordered eating; and the truth is that it was a total freak accident. In 2006, I had only recently qualified as a clinical hypnotherapist and happened to have added to my professional listing that I had…
