Hi, I'm Amy Jones.
I'm a Body Soul Wisdom Coach, Clinical Herbalist & Anti-Diet Nutritionist.
I believe that your body is a receiver and that if you listen close enough, you'll pick up signals about your health, vitality, power, confidence & appetites.
I believe you also receive these signals from your people, situations, and the world.
I believe that when you’re tuned into these signals, you know what to do and what’s right for you, in every situation.
Unfortunately, our world conditions women to ignore those signals…which means it disconnects us from our own power, our own wisdom, our own knowings.
And that’s why it’s my mission to reconnect you with your body-soul wisdom. Your body-soul wisdom is your inherent, internal compass that always tells you the right choices to make -- from significant life decisions, to the day-to-day choices about food and energy and movement.
That’s my work as your practitioner: to help you holistically address all the elements of your life, from your relationship with your body and our culture; to learning how to better tune into your bodily signals (embodiment) so you can build your incredible life; to resourcing yourself with spiritual practices; to vitality-boosting nutrition and herbal medicine.
My preparation for our work together includes training in the co-active coaching method; a university degree in women’s studies and social work; and certificates in eating psychology, sexuality, relationships & communication, culinary nutrition, and herbalism.
Repetitive attempts to diet & lose weight
Perpetual self judgment
A genuine desire to improve your health and feel good
A looping storyline that this time will be different
This time you will try harder, make a better plan, burn more calories, not bring any carbohydrates into the house
But it never really works.
And it drains your self esteem.
You begin to doubt yourself and worse, you start to resent and hate yourself.
After the multiple failed attempts at weight loss you start to consider that maybe this isn’t the thing.
Maybe dieting really IS a ridiculous idea. And so you start wonder how you could do it differently.
But then, just maybe, you start to question the whole thing.
The answer is: YES YOU CAN feel good, look good and focus on your wellbeing, vibrancy and aliveness WITHOUT dieting, calorie counting and eating strange concoctions of food.
That’s where my work as an eating psychology coach, clinical herbalist and anti-diet nutritionist begins.
I guide women from where they are to where they want to be with their relationship to food, body, confidence & health.
We work on the intangible, emotional, cultural and mindset patterns.
In working together, you'll remember and rediscover the power and body soul wisdom you inherently hold
We peel away the layers of conditioning that keep you stuck in dieting, body judgment and the perpetual hamster wheel of trying to lose weight and be “better.”
We work on the practical, tangible of nutrition, eating, cooking and life skill strategies to shift from feeling overwhelmed and frustrated.
Through our work together, you’ll find that long sought after feeling of being comfortable in your own skin, finding peace AND pleasure with food on a daily basis, while reclaiming your self expression, power and presence- all while avoiding the landmines of body judgment and the tyranny of diet culture. (yes, you may likely lose all the weight of guilt, shame and struggle)
I do that by coaching you to change your belief structures and heal damaged eating patterns and by helping you rebuild your practical, daily healing skills using recipes, food recommendations, herbal medicine and building new beliefs & habits.
Indicators that this work might be right for you, now:
If you’re obsessed with food and feel constantly at war with your body
You have painful periods or have challenging menstrual patterns (or lack of pattern!)
If you have been told you have PCOS
You are worried about some of your “numbers” like blood pressure or triglycerides
If you’ve been told you’re insulin-resistant or pre-diabetic or suspect you are
If you’re experiencing chronic digestive upset (or have been diagnosed with IBS)
Sleep is difficult for you or you never quite feel rested
You suspect your daily life or tasks shouldn’t be making you feel as drained as you actually
feel and wish you had more energy
You feel constantly on edge, emotionally; or often feel weepy; or feel flat or numb
If you’re a woman whose experienced periods of depression or anxiety across your life.
In our coaching work together, I can help you build your personal skills and develop a web of personal healing and health practices that can move you from where you are, towards where you want to be.
You don’t have to check parts of yourself to work with me. You’re a multifaceted being and I’m a multifaceted coach. You can read my bio here: About me
I can meet all of you and support you holistically – emotionally, spiritually, energetically, behaviorally and physically. Meaning, you don't have to hide the shame, guilt, fear or all the parts we've been told to tuck away.
This is about your whole health.
This is about your self-reclamation, your self-expression and your power as a woman.
I want you to experience your body as a source of power rather than a problem – and have the emotional and physical skills to be able to sustain that relationship with yourself for the rest of your life.
This is our work, together.
