Learn how to make peace with food and reclaim your life from dieting.

I’m here to help you with it.

Welcome to the Mindful Body

Life Coaching 

My role as a coach is to support you identify your most meaningful goals and overcome your challenges, may them be emotional stress eating or a lack of body confidence. Our sessions will be focused on your specific needs. They will stimulate a greater understanding on how your mind shapes the food choices you make today and have you achieve the well-being goals you have been chasing after for a long time, without restriction or dieting.

The Benefits of working with a Coach

Shifting your focus from weight-loss to health gain and from dieting to nourishing your body and mind is at the core of what The Mindful Body is all about.

Mindful Outlook

I will help you tune into your body’s needs so you can enjoy food again. Savoring your favorite food without guilt will become a thing of the past.

Healthy Habits

No more worrying about counting calories or “good or bad” food lists, you’ll create self-care habits that you can maintain for the rest of your life.

Feedback & Support

Unbiased and honest feedback to help you on your journey toward a more fulfilling life. Sometimes we need someone else’s help to get where we want to get.


Regular check-ins to support and motivate you, to make sure you remain focused on your most meaningful goals. No more giving up!

Is it For Me?

We all have personal goals in mind. The best path to achieving them, though, isn’t always very clear. My knowledge and experience as a psychologist and coach will support you to get that clarity. If you are tired of YoYo dieting and are ready to commit to removing the words “diet” and “lose weight” from your vocabulary this is for you. With my help, not only will you be able to close the gap on your goals, but you will also break through to the other side.

What is it like to work with me?

You define what the life coaching process looks like for you. Every person is unique and has their own set of aspirations and hopes.

It is my job to assist you on that journey toward a better future. That is why everyone that gets life coaching requires a personalised process that caters to their individual needs and preferences.

As a life coach based in Dublin, The Mindful Body provides a nourishing environment that offers an opportunity for self-discovery and self-reflection. Over time, you will see clear progress toward your goals and the health benefits that come with taking these steps. 

Mindful Eating

Unlike diets, mindful eating it’s not about rules and guidelines.

And weight-loss is not even the main benefit, even if by making mindful eating part of your life and practicing it regularly, you might lose the extra weight and keep it off. Ultimately, you learn to love your body more and to take care of it in many different ways. 

When your mind is in the right place the process of looking after yourself becomes easy.

      About Me

      I believe our mind is key.

      It’s the most powerful tool for sustainable and long-lasting lifestyle changes.

      As a psychologist and a life coach, my mission is therefore to help you uncover your amazing potential so that you can rewrite your relationship with food and your body.

      Whether you’re struggling with emotional eating or stress management, by incorporating compassionate, supportive, and insightful techniques, you can begin your transformation into the best version of yourself today.


      See what some of our past clients have to say about The Mindful Body, how we’ve built up their confidence and given them the motivation and self belief to help to transform their lives

      "At the start of the Covid lockdown in 2020, I went to my Doctor where I had a very honest conversation about my eating habits and more importantly my binging habits. My Doctor advised I had an eating disorder called binge eating disorder (BED). From 15+ years of dieting on and off my weight had skyrocketed and my relationship with food had become extremely damaged. I struggled to make sense of it all which was why I started to work with Dona. She provided me with a safe non-judgemental space to share with her confidentially and work through my thoughts and behaviours. Dona is one of very few people I felt safe sharing with. She provided me with some valuable feedback around her observations and experience and really helped me move forward through the work we did together over 4 sessions. I feel much more confident about the direction I am now heading in and relieved to be free of the false beliefs I held from following so many diets over the years. The help has been so important to me and I look forward to having another session in a few months to check in and keep me on track. Thank you Dona for all of your help and kindness."

      Anon. – Ireland

      "Dona has such a beautiful soul and she's so professional. I had the pleasure to have her as a coach and she's brilliant, really listens and guides you to find out what you need and want. I'd recommend her anytime, forever!"

      Beatriz Abad – United Kingdom

      "Donatella is wonderful! The help she gave me through coaching has really changed my way of thinking for the better! She is a great listener and asks questions that you would have never thought to ask yourself."

      Brittany Benjamin – Ireland

      "Dona has helped me since as far back as 2012 as I have gone through at different stages of my life. She has helped me to overcome break-ups, navigate through career changes and even relocating to a different country. She always helps me find the answers on my own and she makes the path look brighter."
