‘When Peace walked through my door my inner child sighed that kind of sigh that says you’re here…at last’
– JL KEEZ –
To be seen as an influential leader and powerful advocate in creating global recognition that unconditional, meaningful relationship connection is key to human development. To be the person responsible for demonstrating healthy connecting methods with each other and self, with the view of developing empowered thoughtful individuals who are not only leaders in their own lives, but who see unconditional acceptance as the desired path moving forward.
The solutions you seek as to why your body hurts are wishing to be discovered. Allow me to guide you toward them…
This is me
I am a passionate advocate for those experiencing eating disorders. I am a Mother, Partner, Secondary Home Economics Teacher and Reality Therapy Certified Counsellor. I enjoy playing the piano, singing and pursuing a range of creative outlets.
Over a number of years I have assisted many by providing understanding as to why their lives are seemingly heading in a downward spiral, particularly those experiencing an eating disorder. I have witnessed the frustration of too many not having the tools, skills, nor understanding as to how to navigate their way through a difficult life experience. I acknowledge a huge need in providing this knowledge. My programs are collections of quality information, reflecting my own journey, and designed to equip you with the directions you deserve, to overcome your current situation.
In conversation with so many whose lives are impacted by an eating disorder, I acknowledge common lines of enquiry:
Searching for ‘why’?
Frustrated for ‘how’?
Screaming for ‘out’?
This is where I believe my lived experience, extensive knowledge and compassionate understanding will be a valuable input toward your journey ahead.
Your solutions deserve to be identified.
Allow me to be that guiding hand as you navigate your pathway toward full recovery.
Understanding Your Story Through Mine
Is the book behind the programs developed. Reading this will provide an understanding to all I have prepared for you. I truly hope that in reading it, it leaves you with the desire to know more and engage in the programs offered.
Written with you in mind at all times, I want you to grow and learn in your understanding as to what this thing called Anorexia Nervosa is all about. I want you to take hold of your life, empower yourself with knowledge, strengthen your resolve to succeed and use this foundation to catapult your way back to full health and well-being.
“ The Key in the lock”
This book has been a journey of understanding and learning . The author shares her experiences with complete authenticity . She has taken her own pain and gifted this to others in the form of learnings so deeply valuable that anyone can benefit from reading this book.
“It gave me understanding”
I recommend this book to anyone who has struggled with issues from their past whether it be eating disorders, any form of abuse, neglect or those that are dealing with addictions of any kind.
“Compelling and a eye opener”
This is much more than a book about an eating disorder. This is a book about total betrayal and destruction of a person by the people expected to protect you. It is a book about determination and hope.
“From the heart”
The author’s resilience through the suffering and her eventual healing is encouraging for anyone who has experienced childhood trauma, because the message is; you “CAN” confront and you “CAN” heal
