Make peace with food, eat mindfully and reclaim your life from dieting.

I’m here to help you with it.

Welcome to the Mindful Body

Eating Coaching 

My mission and my passion as a Psychologist and Eating Coach is to help you achieve your wellbeing goals and overcome the challenges related to food and body confidence.

I guide you to eat more mindfully, bringing back the connection with your body wisdom and intuition, so that you stop dieting and thinking in terms of ‘good’ or ‘bad’ food. As a result you’ll be able to focus your energy on other important areas of your life. 

Our sessions will be focused on your specific needs. We work on how your mind shapes the food choices you make today, to ensure you break free from the food obsession and go back to enjoy food without guilt, shame, counting calories or restricting yourself.

The Benefits of working with an Eating 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

No more worrying about counting calories or “good or bad” food lists.

I will gently help you let go of the diet mentality so you enjoy all kind of foods again and learn how to make nutrient dense foods part of your daily life.

Eating your favorite food with guilt and regret will become a thing of the past.

Lifestyle Change

You’ll learn to listen to your body and let it guide your daily choices.

You will make a long-lasting lifestyle change instead of just reaching a temporary goal and get back to the starting point after a few months.

No more turning to external rules to tell you what, when and how to eat.

Genuine Support

It is crucial for me that you feel comfortable to share your eating and body struggles. That you can finally feel heard and understood.

I know from experience how hard it is to ask for help and the fear of being judged. That’s why I support and gently nudge you in a compassionate and non-judgmental way. 

Accountability

I know the hardest time is when you are on your own working on your daily food choices.

For this reason my coaching program includes regular check-ins in between our sessions to support and motivate you along the journey.

 No more giving up!

Is it For Me?

 This is for you if you:

  • Are tired of Yo-Yo dieting.
  • Feel ready to commit to removing the words “diet” and “lose weight” from your vocabulary.
  • Find yourself regularly reaching for food to cope with painful emotions or stressful situations.
  • Have noticed a powerful force that pushes you in front of the fridge which you seem to have zero control on.
  • Experience strong cravings on a regular basis.
  • Have come to the conclusion that diets are not the solution for you and they don’t get you the results you are looking for.

  • Are ready to make a change and open to explore alternative ways of relating to food and your body.

What is it like to work with me?

I’m here to take your hand and guide you through your unique journey to make peace with food, eat mindfully and reclaim your life from diets.

You define what the coaching process looks like for you.

As a psychologist and eating coach based in Dublin, I provide a nourishing and non-judgmental space to support you on your specific challenges.

I help you define the wellbeing objectives that matter the most to you and identify the actions which not only will get you there, but that you can realistically maintain for the rest of your life.

We do that by meeting online for 90 min at the frequency that suits you best. And we work together at the small, sustainable changes you can start implementing in your daily life.

Over time, you will see clear progress and the health benefits that come with making those changes. 

Eating Mindfully

Unlike diets, learning to eat mindfully it’s not about rules and guidelines.

The focus shifts from eating for weight-loss to nourishing your body.

Ultimately, you learn to connect mind and body and to become aware of what it is that your body wants and needs the most.

This way you also become more appreciative of your body and start taking care of it in many different ways, dropping the negative sel-talk and judgment on its shape and size.

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

      Testimonials

      See what some of our past clients have to say about working with me, how we’ve built up their confidence and given them the motivation and self belief to reach their most meaningful goals.

      "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. 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. 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

      "Before working with Dona I would regularly skip breakfast, snack on toast and tea, and basically run on empty. During our sessions, I felt Dona held the space which allowed me to open up and to really be honest about my relationship with food. I was heard, understood, and appreciated. Which made it easy for me to look at myself objectively, learn and move on with the tools and make informed decisions. I have had lots of time to think through all our sessions and while I am still learning, I am now more mindful when I eat. I think about the taste and how the food or drink makes my body feel. Slowing down and enjoying the process. I really enjoyed our check-in’s in between sessions; this gave me more confidence to work towards my end goal. I felt the process had a natural flow. She is an exceptional coach. And I look forward to working with her again."
