Imagine making peace with food and never have to diet again.
Hello, I'm Dona!
I’m a Psychologist & Eating Coach based in Ireland.
I help women who binge and overeat on a regular basis make peace with food, redescovering the joy of eating with pleasure, in a way that feels good to their body.
My motto is: Listen to your body wisdom!
The Diet-Binge Cycle
Bingeing and overeating have helped you to feel safe and secure when your emotions feel too difficult to handle.
However, this has come at a high cost.
Overeating on a regular basis is taking its toll on both physical and emotional level, leaving you feeling guilty, ashamed, tired and bloated most times when you eat.
Maybe after years of diets and strict food rules to try and fix the binges, you don’t really know what to do.
You’re tired of starting the same diet every Monday!
If you need strong support and guidance to stop bingeing and make peace with food and your body without the stress of dieting, then you’re in the right place.
How I can help you
It’s common belief that when you overeat food is the problem.
That to solve overeating you must focus on portions, macros, calories, which all belong to dieting.
The truth is that food is only the tip of the iceberg.
It’s just the symptom of something else.
So here is where I help.
- I guide you to look under the surface of how you’ve used food to cope. Because the root cause of your binges often lies underneath the surface and might not be immediately clear to you.
- I help you identify alternative ways to food to deal with your emotions.
As a result you:
- Break free from the diet-binge cycle.
- Learn to really savor your food mindfully.
- Build daily practices that are kinder to your body and to your mind, without dieting.
Start healing your relationship with food and body now.
Don't know where to start?
Your body is your home.
You can absolutely learn to treat it with the kindness it deserves, eating in a way that feels kind to your body.
I have created a simple yet very effective template with you in mind.
It contains a beautiful mindful eating practice to help you:
- Slow down while eating.
- Pay attention to the sensations of the food in your body.
- Approach food from a place of love and gratitude, instead of guilt and constant worry for your weight.
It’s called: Savour Your Food

Here is what my clients have said
See what some of my past clients have to say about working with me at healing their relationship with food and body.
“At the start of the Covid lockdown, 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).
Dona provided me with a safe, non-judgemental space to share with her confidentially and work through my thoughts and behaviours. She 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.”
“Dona has such a beautiful way of helping you understand just how much our emotions can influence not only our state of mind but also the food we choose to eat.
Having invited Dona to deliver a presentation to a number of groups I work with, I was more than satisfied.
She delivered with authenticity and respect and clearly feels very passionate about helping women feel better about their body.”
