Before working with Kaori, I was feeling very stressed out about my eating and weight. I was eating a largely gluten and dairy free diet, but tended to eat foods high in carbohydrates and sugar, leaving me exhausted. I also had a big problem with night binges, which I hadn’t been able to overcome despite help from various nutritionists and naturopaths.
Initially, I had my reservations about working with Kaori as I had had experience working with naturopaths and did not do well with strict diets, which made me anxious. I was worried that with more supervision and attention on my diet, my binges would become worse.
However, working with Kaori was stressful. I felt like she really listened to what I was saying, and as we worked on my nutrition and emotions, I stopped bingeing within 2-3 weeks of her program. I especially found her close support and real-life planning (for example, we would discuss non-ideal real life eating situations and ways to deal with them) very useful.
Kaori’s approach is not just nutritional. She gets to know you as a person, and she learns about your life and personality and that is how her coaching is so effective. It is both tailored and flexible.
It was enjoyable working with Kaori, as she provided me with a lot of encouragement and was ready for every curveball in the process – Kaori’s approach is not static, and the constant tweaks we would make to my plan, or the new skills she would teach me to deal with challenges (for example, emotional tapping) were very helpful.
The best thing I’ve gotten out of working with Kaori is the complete freedom from bingeing. This has brought me such peace of mind. I would say to those who are thinking of working with Kaori: Working with her is hands down the best thing I’ve done in years, and her help and friendship throughout the process has made my journey towards better health a rewarding one.
Be prepared to make difficult changes, but also know that you can expect much support from her coaching.
Thank you Kaori!
