Welcome to Freedom from Food

Hi, my name is Bianca and I am a coach, counsellor and hypnotherapist who specialises in the treatment of eating disorders. I love to help people discover just how resourceful they can be in their recovery, and assist them to find their true purpose beyond the confines of an eating disorder.

Why am I so passionate about what I do?

As a teenager and young adult, I experienced both under-eating and over-eating disorders. My struggles were driven by low self-esteem, poor body image and a deep desire to maintain control as well as ease the pain of difficult life situations. Despite my difficulties however, I knew that there must be more to life and that recovery was possible. After pursuing my own therapy, I studied hypnotherapy and counselling, which quickly opened the door to learning so many more therapeutic techniques which I now use in my practice today. These were techniques which I found actually worked and truly got to the bottom of the issues I had experienced for so much of my life. My mission now is to help you to also be able reconnect with and accept your body, and create a peaceful and nurturing relationship with food which propels you in to a future that you DO want.

I reached out to Bianca for assistance with my wife who was going through a very trying time with the arrival of our new baby girl and within weeks, the passing of my father in law. My wife was really struggling like never before with high anxiety and depression and Bianca was able to guide my wife through this very troublesome time. Bianca’s communication, professionalism and kindness made this whole experience that much easier by her guidance and confidence from the moment Bianca took on the concern. Thank you Bianca, I would have no hesitation in recommending your professional services.

My eating disorder was always something I couldn't change from the surface, it was so hard to wade through an ocean of conflicting emotions and thought to really address the negative behaviours and feelings I was having. Hypnotherapy was almost a last resort for me, but I remember leaving the first session and just feeling lighter. It was as though the weight was lifting slowly, and I could see more about the why I was the way I was. Through hypnotherapy, Bianca helped me sift through nearly 7 years of bad habits and negative thoughts to find a resilience within myself that I didn't know existed as I had shut it down myself. This helped me immeasurably in both the long and short term to develop my own voice and really stand up to my problems

Bianca has provided me with a professional service of hypnotherapy and counselling in a relaxed and safe environment. Her credentials and knowledge can be noted from the outset. She is gentle and non-judgmental but most importantly she has helped me to get the results I needed. I highly recommend Bianca for anyone who needs assistance with recognising that their low self-worth is affecting their day to day existence. Bianca will help you to put life into perspective and will provide you with the tools so that you can begin to enjoy your life to the fullest.

I have seen Bianca several times now and she has made me feel extremely comfortable during the sessions. She exudes the perfect balance of gentleness and confidence, and has an obvious depth of knowledge that comes through in her responses and insights.

I highly recommend Bianca as a hypnotherapist.

Bianca made me feel so comfortable. I have never had this type of therapy before and didn't know what to expect. All I can say is Bianca made me open up and feel safe. I fee like I have learned so many tools for life and swear by this therapy. My eating disorder is now under control and I feel amazing. This was honestly a life changing experience for me. I would recommend Bianca to anyone and already have done so, she is very good at what she does.

We are so happy with Bianca's service. My mum has been seeing her for 6 months now and has come a long way. She is so much happier that she has been able to talk to someone about her issues and feelings. We are so grateful. Finding Bianca has helped mum a lot and in turn has helped the family with mum being so happy.

A big thank you to Bianca for helping me achieve so much with hypnotherapy. 6 months ago, I was lonely, depressed and very critical of myself. However, since seeing her, I am on the road to becoming a much happier and stronger person. I find that I am no longer overwhelmed by the small things and I’ve noticed that my levels of self-esteem and self-worth are continuously improving….seeing Bianca has really changed the way that I feel about myself and my life a lot

I spent three weeks with Bianca and felt calmer and more centred after my very first appointment. She is knowledgeable, professional and creates a safe environment.

I had a consultation with Bianca. I wasn’t sure what to expect. She shares the space with my Chiropractor, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. I used to chew my tongue when I concentrated. In one session I have stopped. After the session I was aware when I started to do it, and after about a week I completely stopped. I can heartily recommend Bianca and her services.

I absolutely loved my sessions with Bianca and found them invaluable. I went in expecting just Hypnotherapy, instead I got a fantastic therapist in addition to the Hypnotherapy. Bianca helped me with strategies to move forward with what was bothering me and really helped. I would highly recommend Bianca to anyone needing help, in particular with weight issues like I did.

I am a very logical person and somewhat skeptical I was curious enough to try it out. After explaining thoroughly and answering questions I had, we did 25 minutes of hypnosis on basic relaxation (felt like 10). What was interesting was I felt fairly normal through most of the session. However once we stopped and Bianca “pulled me out” I realised how heavy and comfortable I felt. Like waking up from a long nap but without any grogginess. More like a ridiculously sense of warmth and the tension I didn’t realise was in my forehead was gone as well. Really hard to describe!! But if you’re at all curious I highly recommend having a try and seeing Bianca, you don’t need a “problem” as such to go and benefit hypnotherapy.

Really enjoyed my sessions - found them to be relaxing, professional and educational (also got really great results!)

Do you need to see a therapist?

Do you need to see a therapist?

1st December 2018

Have you ever been to see a psychologist, counsellor, hypnotherapist or any other type of therapist who assists with mental or emotional health? No doubt that if you haven’t personally, then it is likely that you know someone who has. These days there is much less stigma around asking for help which is a great thing. However, the notion of therapy still seems to be shrouded in some stigma and mystery which may prevent some people from reaching out when needed.

Connection, Acceptance & Clarity

1st January 2019

Every year for the last few years, I have chosen a word that I want to focus on for the upcoming year. This has been my compromise to a traditional New Year’s resolution. The word is not a promise to myself to act or do anything in particular at all. Rather, it is a way of me bringing in new energy to my life and staying mindful of what I’d like to focus on. A way of focusing on more of what I do want rather than what I don’t want. With this word, I write it in my diary, on my whiteboard. I might meditate on it or simply talk about it in conversation when it comes up. I realise that this is not a new or unique concept, but nonetheless it is a strategy that I have found works for me and is easier to hold on to than a resolution.

Is Dieting the Answer?

31st January 2019

Make no mistake; I’ve had a tortured relationship with food for as long as I can remember. I was about 8 or 9, doing gymnastics when I looked around and realised that I was ‘bigger’ than all of the other girls. Actually, the truth is that I was just hitting puberty early and was more developed. Nonetheless, bigger in my young mind meant “fatter”, and fatter meant = unacceptable.
