Define a life beyond your body!
The mind behind Messy Mindfulness
I know how exhausting it feels to be consumed by constant thoughts around food and body. I spent years of my life stuck in patterns of negative self-talk, body-image insecurities, and extreme restriction and binging. I felt like I would never escape from the constant panic over calories, my weight, and food. It wasn’t until I worked to understand the history of diet culture, my body’s biology, and unmasked the purpose of my eating disorder, while simultaneously practicing a series of coping mechanisms, that I found peace. By utilizing a combination of these techniques with clients, together, we foster this same sense of peace, body neutrality, and self-acceptance. It’s my goal to be a guide and support system, as well as empower you with the tools and insight necessary to begin recovery.
supporting you in shifting the focus from shrinking your body to expanding your life
From the moment we are born, we are immersed in a culture that prioritizes thinness and praises weight-loss. We are taught from the very beginning, that we must take up as little space as possible. This mindset has created a disconnect from what our bodies and souls truly need to thrive, making our relationship with food and our bodies messy in the process. And while many of us are ready to move forward, so many of us feel stuck. That is exactly why Messy Mindfulness is here. Through coaching, workbooks, community, and more, this is your safe space to develop the tools to expand your life instead of shrinking your body.

With this package, you'll work to learn more about diet culture, its harmful history, and its significant impact on our society as a whole.

1-on-1 eating disorder recovery coaching
The earlier stages of recovery can sometimes be the hardest and the most crucial. If you are actively recovering from eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, and/or binge) get the additional support you need. As an Eating Disorder Recover Coach, Sydney can, alongside your therapist and dietician, aid in supporting your progress or help you to transition out of intensive care.
With coaching, you'll work one-on-one with Sydney during scheduled weekly calls. In between calls, you'll receive assignments & practices to define and provide guidance & support in your recovery. Additionally, for times when the week seems extra riddled with triggers, you will have access to Sydney for a quick chat.
Body Image Blueprint
Working through complex issues like body image and other related problems can be hard to tackle, especially when you aren't sure where to start. This is what our workbook, The Body Image Blueprint, can be for you! A helpful guide filled with inspiring testimony from Sydney's own hardships with her body image, thought-provoking journal prompts and positive affirmations, and more valuable skills and strategies in-store when you get this workbook for yourself.
