Just like you, I have several sides. Firstly, there’s the me with make-up. It reads like the official biography in a glossy brochure. Let’s start there, shall we?
The official Avril
Avril Carpenter specialises in the psychology behind weight issues.
Her mission is to free women from diet hell in all its forms – weight gain, food obsession, low self-confidence and self-sabotage. She believes all women deserve to make peace with food – no matter how long they’ve been battling.
By uncovering the mental and emotional obstacles that lead to weight gain, she helps women to lose weight, feel fabulous + ignite their inner sparkle.
Happily, these women discover that when they’re aware of what’s going on in their head and heart, they make peace with food, and the number on the scales takes care of itself.
Their weight ceases to be ‘a thing’ and they return to their natural blue print of good health.
Her liberating approach to weight loss draws on cutting-edge techniques from neuro-linguistics, cognitive behavioural therapy, hypnotherapy and psychology.
Avril will show you how to transform your relationship with food, your body, and your inner-thinner-sparkly-self, permanently.
She resides in Auckland, New Zealand with her petit prince Tom, and her and dog, Pudding.
The unofficial Avril. Without make-up.
I haven’t always had a good handle on my body and my self-image. I struggled with bulimia during my teens and twenties. As with all secrets, it was a heavy burden to shoulder.
I wish I’d known then what I know now. But I didn’t. And, since regret is a wasted emotion, I use my past as motivation to empower women to deal with their own body image challenges.
Before re-training and helping women with weight loss I worked in marketing in Hong Kong, the Seychelles, London and Melbourne. I’ve also worked as a jockey in Tokyo and a dive master in Honduras. If you guessed I like adventure, you’d be right.
I believe that happy, healthy women who understand the role of self-responsibility and self-love are key in creating happy, healthy communities in which we can all flourish. The world needs more of those, wouldn’t you agree?
