I'm so glad I followed my heart and reached out to Amy. She understood my struggle because she's been where I was. Amy's an enthusiastic supporter and cheerleader as well as an empathetic listener. By working with Amy, I became aware of the weight I was carrying on the inside (my inner mean girl) and in my environment. She was a pro at uncovering the limiting beliefs that were affecting my eating. And Amy gave me tools I could use and am still using while I continue on my weight loss/body image journey. I feel so much lighter!
When I started working with Amy English, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I didn’t know anything about the program. What I did know, was that I was unhappy with myself. I knew I needed to change something but didn’t know what, or how, to make those changes. When the opportunity to work with Amy arose, I decided I had to take the chance to make a difference for myself. The biggest surprise was that the focus wasn’t on diet, it wasn’t on exercise, it was looking at how I treated myself. Each session took a close look at some aspect of, essentially, the messages I send myself every day, all day. I’d never noticed them before working with Amy. Once I started to pay attention to all those toxic subtle messages I gave myself, I began to change the messages. Slowly, I learned to change my inner voice from my own worst critic, to my own personal cheerleader. That was the deepest and most profound transformation. Just this, learning to be kind to myself. I stopped automatically punishing and berating myself and began to take care of myself and talk to myself with kindness and with love. Certainly, there’s much more to the program than that. But, for me, that was at the heart of each session. I have more energy and have more fun each day. Oh, I’ve also lost 22lbs. I would recommend the amazing Amy English.
I absolutely love you as a coach. You turned into a friend I never even expected to come into my life. You helped me overcome issues and thoughts I struggled with my entire life. I only wish I would have our Zoom calls every Friday forever. The help you gave me, I can't even believe myself sometimes. I completely changed the way I think about and talk to myself. It surprised me that I could jump right back on plan after a life event happened. I never did that before. I always spiraled out of control telling myself I would start over on Monday, only that Monday never came. I’m proud that I committed for a year, didn’t give up, and learned to stop hating myself.
Amy is so gentle that you sometimes don’t realize she totally gets you until she says something and you know she TOTALLY gets you. I was surprised by how much the program helped me sort out problems and negative thoughts that didn’t seem, on the surface, to have anything to do with food. Some old thought patterns surfaced and now that I’m aware of them, I can catch them when the kick in. I like myself much more without them. Amy is a compassionate, intelligent, and gifted coach. She has the ability to hear so deeply that it doesn’t matter how you say it, the truth is in there and understandable. The program helped me recognize ways that I have been sabotaging myself and has helped me feel more powerful and beautiful. Amy is strangely restful and peaceful while being powerful and transformative.
I was lucky enough to work with Amy English for 8 one-on-one sessions and it was glorious! The work we did together impacted every area of my life. She's a genius at asking the right questions and her intuition is a magnificent gift. She will lead and follow and listen and support you in a way that is uniquely hers. It's hard to describe unless you actually have the experience. I can't recommend her highly enough. If you are ready to do the work and open yourself to insights and growth and love - then Amy's your gal.
I look at things differently. I think totally differently. I no longer worry that I need eat something. I learned how to listen to my body, so I eat when I’m hungry. I can feel my feelings and keep taking steps. I am taking better care of my body than ever before.
I am most proud of my ability to use the hunger scale and ask myself questions before I turn to food. Food choices I make now are more intentional and I feel more in control of my decisions with food no matter what that decision might be. I didn’t think I could have control over my choices with food. I have gained more confidence to trust myself and to learn to listen to my body. I am more conscious of my decisions around food now and feel like I have more power over the decisions I make. The best part about working with Amy is that she will call you on your BS in such a gentle way that you are not afraid to look at it. Talking with her is such a safe space I loved having the ability to discuss anything that was on my mind and work through how much power I was giving those thoughts.
Amy is intuitive, and walks her talk. She identified issues that I did not even know I was dealing with, exposing them in a safe and comforting space. And she gives homework that is just enough challenge to stretch your comfort zone and provide solid incorporation of the new knowledge she has imparted or reminded me of. The most transformative part has been learning to trust myself, relying on hunger scale and body compass. I am proud that I kept putting in the work it takes to get results. Results being that I am much more often able to identify the thoughts that trigger a desire to emotionally eat. I'm also getting better at catching them BEFORE I eat and heading off the food consumption involved. Somehow I just knew that this path was the right way to freedom from diets and body shame, so I just kept after it.
Amy’s down to earth, relatable approach helped make the “hard” work eas(ier). She has a deep understanding of the program and is able to teach it in a way that makes sense and has an impact not only on your relationship with food but more importantly with your whole self. Learning Amy’s technique for putting my fear “on the shelf” enabled me to take giant steps in my business which was an unexpected benefit from working with Amy. The support she provided between sessions was hugely helpful to me. I never felt like I was on my own or that I was bothering her. I would recommend Amy to anyone interested in changing their relationship with food.
I love Amy's energy. She is so effervescent and kind, but also grounded, focused, and intensely compassionate. The program made me reevaluate how I look at myself, my choices, and my eating habits. I was able to completely get free of emotional eating. I now notice when I'm doing it so I can stop or make the choice to keep going and I have all the tools I need to effectively manage what I put in my mouth. Now I eat on purpose, even the pleasurable food! I stopped hating my body and constantly criticizing it. I conquered emotional eating. And I work out because it feels good! I notice when I'm trying to make a workout plan instead of just doing what my body wants, and that was a big hurdle for me to overcome! Amy is the perfect coach, because she's been there and she knows the struggle. She can commiserate, but she's also a few steps ahead, so she can guide her clients deliberately forward. It’s been life changing.
