Three ways to make your new year diet work and find a happy body.

I have struggled with my diet all my life. I have binged to the point I feel physically sick and I have had periods where I ate little more than a bowl of veg a day. I have tried intermittent fasting, slimming world, the elimination diet (only managed that one for three days!) And only…

Trauma Therapy Session 30. That’s it Therapy done. I am out of here!
