Some Honest Feedback From My Clients

What an amazing experience! Couldn’t recommend Aoife enough. Completely changed my mentality towards food so I can now enjoy any food I want with no guilt! Aoife is so supportive and kept me motivated through the 12 weeks and beyond it.

Jo, Cork

Aoife has really changed my outlook on food and how I view myself. She has been so good helping me appreciate my body and to learn that it is not against me. She has shown that you don’t have to restrict your eating to lose weight you just have to listen to your body. I can’t thank her enough for all the help she has given me.

Anna, Cork

I am just coming to the end of the 12 week Happy Weight programme with Aoife Deane, and I could not be happier with Aoife or the programme. To sum it up, let’s just say yesterday I ate half a takeaway and one biscuit. I enjoyed every bite and when I was full I stopped. I didn’t feel fear or guilt while eating, and it was easy to stop when I was comfortably full. If you’ve never struggled with food or weight, this may seem like no big deal, but if you’re like me, you know this is HUGE. After decades of trying to control my eating and weight, I can honestly say Aoife’s Happy Weight programme is truly new and different to anything I had come across. Thanks to Aoife’s innovative and inspiring approach, I am learning to really trust my body’s hunger and satiety cues, to enjoy food and to care for my body out of love rather than fear. Aoife herself is highly professional and knowledgeable but also very down-to-earth and a joy to work with. I could not recommend Aoife and her programme highly enough.

Mags, Cork

I heard about Aoife and her program from a friend of mine and immediately got curious. I had gained weight in the past few years without even noticing and I felt I was not feeling fine with my body and above all with food itself. I tended to overeat only because of boredom, for habit or because I thought I really needed that “pick me up” food. Needless to say, I could not even enjoy the taste of what I was eating. I have started this journey with my boyfriend, who also had a similar experience, and it has been the best decision we could have made. Aoife supported us with a plan that could help us both and gave wonderful personalised tips to help us to change our eating habits. It did not feel like a diet, made of deprivation and renounce, of relentlessly weighting food and feeling miserable. During this journey, we saw a terrific change and not only with that number on the scale dropping every week (a great bonus nevertheless) but with our relationship with food itself! We managed to build a new mindful way to eat, enjoying food taste and listening to what the body actually need. All this with a very helpful and positive attitude! I cannot recommend Aoife enough!🙂

Eleonora, Cork

I can’t give 6 stars out of 5 which is a technicality of Google and not me.
The method and approach to food that Aoife proposes shows you the core reason why you could never lose weight permanently before. She is the most competent and supportive professional I have met in decades of battling with weight excess and for the first time I have lost weight without realising I was dieting. I don’t want to have my life back of dieting, I have got a better one and I don’t miss the “previous” one as it wasn’t as happy as the one I have achieved and she let me achieve.
I was simply changing my relationship with food with no consistent sacrifices worth called this, it is unbelievable how easy it works if your mind is there. And if it is not, you can rely on Aoife’s support, which not only makes it feel like it’s possible, she empowers you to make it happen.
If you are looking for a great and for good change in the way you see food and food makes you feel, this is the only website you should be looking at, go for it!

I have just finished the three month plan with Aoife and thoroughly enjoyed it and have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. It suited me perfectly as the approach is a common sense, practical one and helps change the way we view food and our relationship with it. It also helps to teach the skills going forward on eating healthily as it’s not a magic diet with a start, middle and end to the body beautiful perfect you.

Jerry, 50, Cork

To anyone who has issues with weight and understand why they have gained it in the first place I recommend this program without hesitation. Aoife helped me understand my mind set around food and my eating habits. I’ve stopped dieting and have become more aware of my body and when it needs food. I continue to lose weight and eat mindfully and enjoy every meal. Aoife is so supportive and understanding and is always available to talk when you need support and advice. This program is an investment in your health! Go for it! You won’t regret it!

Margaret, 53, Cork

I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Aoife Deane to help anyone reach their lifelong weight management goals and achieve their ideal body size and weight. Having been unhappy with my eating habits and weight, body shape and self-confidence since my childhood, for as long as I can remember, I have always struggled to maintain a healthy weight and was a huge self-critic. I had tried and tried on several occasions to diet, all with short term results, no long term sustained behavioural and weight change. I realised eventually that I was an emotional eater, and, was deeply unhappy with my body image and the health risks of my weight. Short term will power and curtailing foods/restricting calories was not going to work. Here’s where Aoife was superb- she recommended practical and delicious foods, encouraging me to savour and enjoy the foods I eat again and listen to my body- stop confusing anger, hurt, emotion, tiredness, fatigue, frustration with hunger, and eat regularly, delicious healthy natural foods. And it worked, weekly progress followed, changes in mind set became habit, willpower wasn’t necessary, and I reached beyond my first target, my second target, my third target, even reaching a weight I thought I would never see again. I would highly recommend, if like me, you have always been unhappy with your weight, trapped inside your body, looking to be free, then work with Aoife.

Ronan, 40, Cork

I have just completed the Happy Weight programme with Aoife, and I am delighted with the results. Rather than this being a diet programme and approaching weight loss with a restrictive attitude towards food, this programme celebrates the idea of enjoying all foods and gives you the advice you need to achieve the weight loss you desire. Unlike other plans – the weight loss is long term and becomes a way of life.

Aoife’s one to one support has been invaluable and makes all the difference in the journey to weight loss. There is no judgement – just support –  and I would recommend this programme to anyone struggling to achieve their desired results.

Edel, 37, Cork

I am not great at writing testimonials but I really found Aoife so helpful and have managed to stay close enough to my weight goal and it’s been nearly a year since I completed the programme. Also, now I know what to do when it occasionally creeps up again.

I can’t thank Aoife enough for all her support. I’ve learned to listen to my body and to treat food as food, not as a scary thing or a comfort. It is amazing what you can learn about yourself with the right guidance. I have lost weight in a better and more sustainable way than ever before.

Hazel, 39, Cork

I was having a difficult relationship with food when I got to the age of 17. As I started to notice that my figure was a bit oversized than my friends. Eating less, not eating or emotionally eating excessively at one time became the bad cycle of my diet. Not until I was diagnosed IBS at the age of 20, I wasn’t realized that I had problem with my anxiety and food that I ate. What initialing me starting the eight-week program with Aoife for weight loss was that I was sick most of the time no matter what I ate in a day and I gained around 20 pounds in 2 years without touching any so- called unhealthy food. I was worried about my health and the doctor directed me to seek advice from dietitians. So, I contacted Aoife for the first appointment. In the first meeting, Aoife asked me question about what I would like to achieve from the program and then she explained the food plan as a guideline for reaching my goal in the program. It was not easy at the beginning. Because when I lost 4 pounds in the first week, then fear of gaining back all those weights attacked me. I ate an ice-cream in the following Sunday, I soon generated a great sense of guilt. I talked about all those feelings and behaviors with Aoife. She showed great understanding of the situation that I was in and being so supportive providing scientific evidence on eating to loss and emotional support to calm down my anxiety. There were two appointments per week for check-up. When I got a bit resistant to continue with the program, she could be so inspirational and encouraging to talk me through tactics to work out my fear, my worry and my weak self-control ability. That was how I completed the program and lost 8 pounds in eight weeks. She is a real master on weight loss and food. She helped me get through my eating disorder problem and decrease my IBS symptoms. I gradually built up my confidence to control my diet, subsequently my weight. I was so happy and grateful having the program with Aoife and achieved those outcomes. Now I am continuing the diet plan even through the program finished. I highly recommend Aoife with her weight loss program if you have the similar issue and expect to make changes on your eating habit. It is never too late to start. As myself proved that making the first appointment is half way to success. Aoife will assist you in the remaining journey to your destination.

8 months later when I looked back at the time of our meetings, I am still grateful that I contacted Aoife. As she did provide me encouragement for loving myself and knowledge on how my body work with food. It’s precious. Now I eat whatever I want and I maintain my weight. 😊

Selena, 25, Cork (& China)

It was a great experience to work with Aoife. I was looking for some inspiration to restructure my food habit and make it more varied and healthy, and I found in Aoife’s mindset the right solution for me.
I didn’t want to follow a diet, with specific quantities and restraints, as I am a food lover, but I was getting extremely bored of what I was used to eat.
When I first contacted Aoife, she set up a call to better understand my needs and my habits, in order to have the mindset ready for our first appointment. After that it was all easy. I managed to lose weight without giving up on what I like and she was following my progresses on a regular basis.
It was a real pleasure to work with her.

Sara, 32, Cork

Before I made the decision to work with Aoife, I had attempted to lose weight many, many times. With each fad diet that I tried, I had never dealt with my negative relationship with food. Over the years, I developed a very unhealthy approach to food, my weight and how I saw myself. However, once I began to work with Aoife, things finally changed for the better! Aoife supported me throughout the whole process, she taught me about what food my body needed and she worked on building up my confidence again. I found the hypnosis very relaxing. I always felt better after each appointment. In the language of weight loss, not only did I lose weight, I lost my negative attitude to food, but more importantly I gained a happy and healthy relationship with myself. Aoife’s positivity is infectious, she is incredibly motivating and I could not recommend her highly enough!

Caoimhe, 31, Cork

When I first contacted Aoife, I was at my heaviest weight ever. This was as a result of continuous mindless eating over many years. The problem was I had neither the motivation nor the want to do anything about it and yet it was impacting every area of my life, particularly my energy and self-esteem.
When I first met Aoife, my biggest worry was would I commit to the program or would I be wasting my time and money on another failed effort. But I instantly clicked with her as she has such a nice manner and is in no way judgmental.
Aoife educates you about food, helps you understand why we eat like we do and how you get control back over food, particularly mindless eating. Her program is not complicated and I ended up eating foods that I previously thought I couldn’t and now I can eat loads of because they’re healthy!
Her program is about nutrition and feeding your body the right foods so that you remain healthy. After a week, I could feel my energy levels rise and my skin and hair improve.
I liked the fact that there was no counting of calories or points or checking how many “sins” I could have in a day, I would have no patience for that. I never once felt like I was on a “diet” . Also, my mindset has changed in that if I decide to have a treat or two, it’s not the end of the world, just carry on again as before
I would highly recommend Aoife to anyone looking to get help. I am delighted I went down the road of getting a qualified dietician to get this help.

M.D, 46, Cork

I had been struggling with weight for years.

Over 8 weeks Aoife gave me the road map and guided me along the way. Her dietary advice was tailored to me and made scientific sense. My consultations with her were very detailed and she was very attentive empathetic and motivating.

There are many.so called ‘diet experts’ out there giving   confusing and conflicting advice.  It’s very reassuring to meet Aoife, who has a degree in dietetics and completing a masters, therefore a professional very qualified in weight management. I now have the formula and confidence to lose the last kgs.

Sinéad, 62, Bishopstown

I worked with Aoife for 4 months. My sessions with Aoife were nothing like I had expected or planned for; however, the conversations were everything I needed.

Like many people, weight is my Achilles, a very central issue of disappointment and regret that was really draining me.

Aoife really helped me to put weight/food/diet in perspective, and to become hopeful, motivated and energised again – even excited!

Aoife is very skilled & experienced, highly trained, and shows great compassion and empathy.

Aoife speaks with rock solid sense. Every session and phone call gives education, advice and support.

If you are feeling pretty lost & hopeless, not knowing how to tackle your weight, I would recommend picking up the phone to talk to Aoife.

You’ll lose weight, but you’ll also being to see your weight & food differently.
