“If your goal is to lose weight, have vitality and energy and feel confidence that you can maintain your optimum weight, call me”


celinaimg2When people look at me, they might think ‘You are slim’ – and I am. But I have not always been that way.

I came from a family with high metabolism and a tradition of healthy and nutritious eastern European food. For the first part of my life weight was not an issue.

However, at the age of 37, after I gave birth to my second child, things changed. I was tired, lacked energy and felt bored during the day. I would make myself toast after toast with butter and cheese or ‘treat’ myself with chocolate. As I started piling on the kilos, I kept saying to myself, ‘I am ok, I can lose weight easily’. I was shocked when I realised that I could not stop overeating, and my battle with the extra 5 to 12 kilos began. This lasted for the next 15 years or so.

When I hit menopause in my late 40′s, I thought that my hormones had started to play up, and that I would never lose the weight I had gained.

Luckily, I have been always interested in the power of the mind to transform people’s lives. Since the mid-1990′s I started studying Hypnotherapy, NLP, and attending Vippasana meditation retreats. I have learned that when we use our minds skilfully, we can transform anything: anxiety, phobias, low self esteem, fear of public speaking etc. I then realised that I could use the very same methods to transform my unhealthy eating habits.

So I researched numerous programmes and eventually came up with a powerful combination of Hypnotherapy, NLP and Emotional Freedom Technique. Within a short period of time I lost the excess weight and settled into my pre-pregnancy weight.

I love that now I can wear anything I like. For years I would not buy myself new clothes. Most importantly I feel healthy. I have vitality and I know how to deal with cravings without depriving myself of food, whilst maintaining a natural, healthy weight.

My programme is designed in a way that you too will lose weight and has tools to deal powerfully with your weight without being restricted as to the types of food you eat.

I am passionate about what I do, and I would love to work with you to achieve your goals.
