Beyond Body Coaching
A global recovery coaching practice
Who we are
Beyond Body Coaching is an eating disorder recovery coaching practice founded by Mia Findlay in 2017. We offer practical and compassionate guidance through the day to day challenges of recovery.
Whether you are working through fear foods, stopping disordered behaviours or working on your body image, we are with you every step of the way. We provide long term one to one coaching, group coaching, online workshops, in person events and one time boost calls. Whatever your current recovery needs are, we've got you.
Our team of coaches have not only been accredited with The Carolyn Costin Institute, we have also fully recovered from our own eating disorders. We are a global practice with coaches in Australia, Europe, UAE and USA.
When we say we understand how tough recovery can be, you know it's true. And when we say we believe in you, you know we really do.
What we do
As accredited coaches and recovered eating disorder survivors, we work with people from all over the world to overcome eating disorders, make peace with their bodies and find their true sense of self.
Our role as recovery coaches is to help clients adopt new, healthy skills and tools to replace old disordered patterns. Whether in person, or online, we work with clients to help you:
Challenge, change and stop disordered thoughts
Address and heal disordered behaviours
Challenge and neutralise fear foods
Implement and prioritise self care practices
Utilise help seeking skills
Improve poor body image
Implement body neutrality
Explore mindfulness & meditation
Adopt an intuitive approach to movement
Our coaching practice offers the following important and practical services to clients who struggle with the following areas:
Food and grocery shopping
Eating at restaurants, cafes etc
Depending on each client's individual needs and stage of recovery, we can work as part of a wider treatment team or directly with the client. Text and email support is also available between sessions. Our aim is to facilitate a safe and secure avenue towards recovery, with a focus on setting achievable goals and moving towards life beyond an eating disorder.
We know that life without eating disorder thoughts and behaviours is possible for you, with the right support and guidance.
Mia, I’ve been wanting to write to you for a while to tell you how much you have done for me, but I haven’t been able to find words that can really do
Food, weight, shape and size have taken the proper perspective in my life. Numbers have no importance to me at all. I don’t use eating disorder behaviours to distract or cope with things that come up in my life. Genuinely can’t say when the last time was that I did.
Thank you for ALL of this, I am eternally grateful for the care and support you gave me. I have so much love for all that you are.
