Welcome!

Thank you for your interest in Lighten Up.

Lighten Up gives you the transformational tools you need to reactivate a peaceful relationship with food, so food isn't a battle anymore — and you can release the excess weight.

If you’re looking to …

  • Rewire childhood programming and get to the root of emotional eating issues
  • STOP eating to feed the emptiness inside you
  • START eating to nourish your body

… you’re in the right place.

Lighten Up is a six-week, online weight loss programme designed specifically for women. It harnesses the power of virtual gastric band hypnotherapy which rewires your thoughts and feelings around food — so you can stop turning to food when stressed, bored, or depressed.

It's given me the ability to do what I always knew I needed to


"This programme has been unbelievable!  It has stopped the sugar and salt cravings, the eating of food for the sake of it. It's not like before when it was an effort not to eat that chocolate - I just don't want it. I wouldn't believe it if someone told me.

I've stuck to the three small meals a day and that's been easy to do.  Eating more slowly and less than before, yet enjoying the food.  Confidence is up and also mood, ability to deal with things that previously would have resulted in consuming the chocolate.  It's basically just doing what we all know is right - eat healthy foods, watch the quantity, exercise more, drink water, but this gave me the ability to do what I always knew. 

It’s nearly two years since I started the journey to losing 16 kilos, dropping two dress sizes. Then my question was “would this last? Two years in, I’ve answered that by being still two sizes and 16 kgs down."

Broken the generational cycle


"Lighten Up has made me more body confident which has had a flow on effect to my 14-year-old daughter.  It has also opened up conversations with her and helped with some stuff that was going on for her.  

My mum has also completed the programme (with amazing results), this healing generational "stuff", breaking the cycle of being unhappy with our bodies.  Not only do we owe it to ourselves to do this work but also our daughters."
