Get On The Fast-Track To Recovery From Eating Concerns

The 4x4 Freedom Express is an evidenced informed guided recovery program with proven results in reducing disordered eating attitudes and behaviours and improving health, mood and self esteem.  

Is the 4x4 Freedom Express For You?

If you feel stuck, hopeless or despairing that you can get off the food and weight control treadmill and re(dis)cover a healthy relationship with food, self and body this program will provide you with the foundational knowledge, skill development and coaching support of a recovered health professional to do just that.

This time last year I reached a point where I was really tired of the way I was treating myself in restriction. I felt really low, not myself. I found it so hard to enjoy life. The 4x4 helped me clearly understand the direction and steps I needed to take to reach my goal of freedom from hate towards my body and fear of food. Now I feel really enthusiastic about life and about having come out of this space because it's not how I want to live ever again. Finding balance [has been] such a beautiful journey and not just in the sense that I have more peace with myself, I actually feel like I am more myself!

Here’s what people are saying about this course:

Freda, 38

No longer defined and confined by food, exercise and self-rejection.

Before I did the 4x4 Freedom Express I was constantly preoccupied by thoughts of food, my weight and my body, to the point that I found it hard to fully engage in anything with a clear, focused mind. Since doing the course my stress levels feel hugely decreased, I am happier, feel so much more at ease and am no longer defined and confined by food, exercise and self-rejection. Having struggled for 19 years with anorexia and disordered eating this is the only thing that has totally helped me to understand what's wrong and how to get free. Michelle's course was exactly the help I needed.

Kate, 40

It's amazing to be on the other side and feel this feeling...lighter, freer, more self-accepting.

I was terrified. I am a 40 year old doing this. The behaviours were so engrained. I felt like if anyone couldn't do (recovery), it was me. Now I feel more empowered, more confident and FREE. I know that's the whole end goal of your program and I really get that now. It's amazing to be on the other side and feel this feeling...lighter, freer, more self accepting. This sense of freedom is hard to put into words unless you experience it. It's just a sigh of relief that overcomes you.

Jeanne, 51

Thankful! I feel so much better about myself.

I am so thankful that I stumbled upon this course. I was heading on a trip to see a friend and was totally scared about how to handle eating while there.  I knew I needed to recover and that I couldn't do this on my own. Part of me questioned whether or not I was even worth it. Now only 3 months later, change has happened!! I feel so much better around food, frequently I am not engaging in eating disorder behavior and I feel so much better about myself-in fact I think that is the most important change. Today is Thanksgiving Day in the United States and I am so thankful for this course, it has seriously changed me. I would totally recommend this course if you are struggling with food issues or eating disorder behaviors.

what you get

Why Choose the 4x4 Freedom Express 

An Experienced Guide

If you feel stuck, lost or like you are spinning your wheels in the eating disorder landscape, you need an experienced guide to help you get off the food and weight control treadmill and onto paths that lead to freedom, hope, health, and improved self and body esteem. You need a friend to steer you clear of the side-tracks and roundabouts so common in this landscape. As a health professional with lived experience of anorexia, EDNOS and binge-eating, I know this path well. I can be that experienced guide for you.

A Proven Pathway

The 4x4 Freedom Express draws upon the knowledge and experience gleaned in over 25 years of working with individuals with disordered eating to provide a unique experience in guided recovery. Drawing upon my background in health, education, counselling and rehabilitation, it delivers a unique blend of psycho-education, skill-development and coaching support, with the addition of counselling support for those who choose to do the professionally supported program.

Results You Can Measure

When you get off the food and weight control treadmill you will feel different. To help you achieve a measurable improvement in your eating attitudes, behaviours, mood and self esteem, we will measure these variables at the beginning and end of the program (8 weeks). Every person who has done the program as prescribed has seen a measurable change in these variables over 8 weeks, with further improvement as program principles continue to be applied beyond week 8.
