It's not what you're eating, it's what's eating you: FREE Binge & Emotional Eating Guide.
Are you sick of dieting, eating your emotions, and feeling out of control around food? If so, you’re in the right place.
My mission to help you quit dieting, end binge and emotional eating, make peace with food and your past, so you can feel confident and joyful in your body.
Why is it so hard?
When we've been at war with our bodies, we become disconnected. Unfortunately, this causes us to push past pain, injury and eat our emotions. To end the war, we need to reconnect with ourselves and heal our emotional pain and trauma. At one time, maybe you needed a way to cope, and food made you feel better, so it became your automatic response to deal with what was too difficult to handle.
I get it because I've been there too. I ate to comfort myself and dull the pain of childhood trauma reinforced by abusive relationships in my twenties and thirties. By working at a subconscious level in my body and on my nervous system, I unlearned patterns, created positive behaviours, and processed emotional trauma.
This work has transformed my life, and I see the same kind of transformation in the lives of the women I coach.
Many of my clients felt scared to try a different approach, but after working with me, they found:
- a deep connection and respect for their body,
- confidence to express their truth,
- freedom, strength, and self-worth,
- the ability to manage emotions without using food to cope,
- peace with their body and food, and
- deep healing from unresolved emotional trauma.

"I have self compassion the first time in my life and an awareness of the connection between my behaviour and feelings and how my body responds, and I have more respect and communication with my body."Debbie Vandennaker, Beaverton, Ontario, Canada
"Before working with Stephenie, I felt unhealthy and ashamed of my body and my habits around food and exercise. Now I choose movement that feels good to me rather than what I think I should be doing. I feel more empowered, like I have the choice to be healthy rather than this being something that is fixed for me."Hayley Stanton Truro, United Kingdom
"Before working with you, my body and food were the centres of my day. I couldn't focus on anything other than exercising or restricting more than I did the day before. After working with you, I feel more connected, confident, and in tune with my body. I'm kinder to myself and have been able to make new goals for the future that aren't body-related."Mikayla Shaw, Lindsay, ON
