Over the years I have helped many sufferers achieve a full and lasting recovery from bulimia and I would be honoured to use my knowledge and insight to help you to do the same.
With a degree in Applied Psychology BSc (Hons) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Applied Social and Community Studies I have a strong background and excellent knowledge base when it comes to understanding eating disorders and recovery from a professional perspective.
However I really feel that it’s my personal experience of overcoming bulimia, thanks to the Bulimia Help Method, that makes me uniquely qualified to coach others to do the same.
I understand what you’re going through
Recovery coaching is different from other recovery programs because I’ve been there.
- I know first hand how it feels to vow over and over not to binge, only to fail and do it again.
- I remember the torment of constantly avoiding ‘bad’ foods, only to then binge on them later anyway.
- I remember the agony of spending countless hours over the toilet throwing up.
- I understand how exhausting it is to spend your days binge eating and purging, to see your health deteriorating, to find yourself watching powerlessly as your entire life and any potential happiness passes you by.

“You won’t regret having Coach Catherine as your coach- she is an amazing person full of encouragement, empathy, and compassion.”Sandra Clarke

What does bulimia coaching provide?
A genuine connection in recovery
While I always coach in a professional, respectable manner, I also believe it’s very important for me to get to know the people who I work with on a personal level, so that I can offer true friendship and a genuine connection throughout the recovery process.
Support and guidance every step of the way
I will work with you to identify your personal barriers to recovery. Together we’ll formulate a series of practical, manageable, step-by-step strategies and goals. We’ll break down your recovery barriers and work through your biggest challenges and struggles.
A safe supportive environment
You never have to worry about shocking me, upsetting me, or disappointing me. I will hold everything you tell me in the strictest confidence, and I will never ever judge you. If you decide to sign up for recovery coaching with me I promise that I will always do my best to help you to feel safe and welcome.
Who is suited to my coaching style?
As we will communicate via written check-ins, my coaching is ideal for those who are more comfortable writing down their thoughts and feelings as oppose to talking about them.
This is our most flexible membership as there are no set appointments and it allows you complete privacy and anonymity while still offering you comprehensive, personal and in-depth support.
How Catherine’s coaching sessions work…
Each week you’ll be asked to complete a written ‘check-in’ form to review your progress. I will then respond to by sending you detailed and in-depth feedback, addressing your concerns, offering support and guidance, outlining helpful strategies and answering any questions you may have.
I’ll also assign you regular goals that will help guide you step-by-step through recovery.
You’ll also receive regular recovery emails that are exclusive to our coaching program.
How to get started with Bulimia Coaching
What I need from you
If you’re interested in signing up for recovery coaching all I ask is that you’re serious about recovering, that you’re able to make time for regular check-in sessions with me each week, and that you are willing to work on making recovery the biggest priority in your life.
Try out Recovery Coaching with Catherine at no risk
10 Day No risk refund period
It’s very important to me that you’re happy with the coaching service that I provide, so although you’ll pay for your first month of coaching when you sign up, we provide a ten day refund policy. This means that if you’re not happy for any reason (or no reason at all) within the first 10 days, you can request a full and immediate refund, no hassle, no questions asked.
Please be aware places are limited
As a coach I take my commitment to you incredibly seriously and dedicate a lot of time to each of my clients. For that reason I only ever work with a very small number of people at any one time, typically just 5-10 people, so places with me on Bulimia Help’s coaching program are quite limited (although if we are not able to allocate a place for you we can put you on our waiting list).
Give it a try and see if it works for you
If you’re interested in recovery coaching but you’re unsure of whether it’s going to be right for you the best advice I can give you is to simply give it a chance. Be brave, be open to change and give yourself the opportunity to see just how incredible life can be when you create a calm and peaceful relationship with food and your body.
Everyone is welcome. I just need to see if coaching is for you and see if you are seriously committed to make changes.
Who is coaching helpful for?
Recovery coaching can be helpful at any stage of the recovery process, but it may be especially beneficial if you:
- Are just starting out on the road to recovery and feeling overwhelmed by the task ahead.
- Have little to no support at home or have not told friends/family about your bulimia.
- Are experiencing lots of relapses and believe full recovery is impossible for you.
- Have lost faith in the recovery process or feel you have hit “rock bottom”.
Can anyone sign up for recovery coaching?
As long as I have a space available for you then yes, absolutely! I’m happy to work with anyone over the age of 18 who feels they could benefit from 1-on-1 recovery coaching sessions.
How long does recovery take?
Unfortunately there are no quick fixes so total recovery wont happen overnight. While everyone is different, you can typically expect to see big improvements within the first 3 to 5 months. Recovery is challenging, but at the end of it all you will receive the greatest gift – your freedom – your recovery!
Is coaching the same as therapy?
No. This is a confusing issue for many as the two services are similar and may be used together.
A therapist tends to focus on exploring past issues and underlying problems where as a coach focuses more on problem solving and taking action towards recovery.
Coaching is a non-clinical personal development service in which the coach works with the client to set the agenda, the goal, and the desired outcome.
A final word from Catherine.
Hopefully with this program, you too will find full recovery. I believe that you can. As long as you’re willing to put the work in I know you can turn your life around like I did. I would be happy to help you find your way.
