Hi, I’m Sinead, a Weight Management Consultant with over 12 years’ experience in the role. I am originally from beautiful Donegal but now call Maynooth in Co Kildare my home from home. 

My mission in life has always been to help people see food as wonderful, an absolute blessing. I had my own early struggles and confusion around how I viewed food and am deeply grateful that I found a way to turn that around. Through no fault of our own, we have gotten many mixed messages about food and have developed complex relationships with how we eat. I love helping people to untangle that misinformed idea of what food is and relearn how to honour food as a valuable friend in our lives.  

What attracted me to The Eating Freely Approach:

I have spent most of my career helping people to understand their eating behaviours using a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy approach alongside Motivational Interviewing techniques to achieve weight loss and long-term maintenance. 

However, over the years, I have witnessed many people struggle on a deeper level that requires more understanding and a different approach. These are people who suffer from binge eating and I could see that whilst the approach I was using suited certain individuals, that same approach could be harmful to binge eaters and could cause even more self-doubt, shame, self-criticism and guilt. One size does not fit all. 

I was eager to find a way to assist these individuals (which might surprise you, were around 30% of my presenting clients) so coming across the Eating Freely Programme was a God send. I now see this group as a distinct group who need an approach that incorporates four pillars of intervention: CBT, Nutrition, Neuroscience along with Mindfulness and Self Compassion and I would love to show you how this approach could allow you to create a new relationship with yourself and the way you see food. 

Please don’t hesitate to call so that we can get to know each other, and you might finally see a programme that sounds more appropriate to meet your particular needs. You are understood in this space, I meet you where you are, and you can be real with me from the get-go.
