About Stephanie

Registered Nurse, Eating Disorder Survivor, Entrepreneur & Body Empowerment Coach

I spent 10 years drowning in the world of eating disorders and body dysmorphia. Whilst deep down I knew I was more than just a body, I couldn’t help but control my body and its imperfections in order to feel wanted and accepted.

It was lonely and frustrating, so I decided to take radical responsibility for myself and choose to own all of me, even the parts I wish were non-existent. I did a naked photoshoot that focused on transformative personal growth. It was powerful.

Through my decade of pain, finding nudity as my medicine, and the wealth of personal and professional development, I became a body empowerment coach delivering confidence, ownership and acceptance to the many people I’ve been lucky enough to serve.

Your love for yourself is just one perception that resides in you right here right now, and I am here to strip back your conditioning, to help you recognise and celebrate your unique, authentic self.

As a trained coach you can count on me to challenge you in the best ways and help create the version of you that you are yearning to unleash.

I am a powerfully genuine human 100% committed to helping you finally step into your version of you with confidence.

So what version of you do you want to see? Who are you committed to being in your life? And what are you waiting for? There are many ways I can help no matter where you are on the journey of Body Freedom.

Your quality of life is our testimonial. – Body Freedom International

Being naked is my lifelong therapy! I feel free, myself, sexy and confident evey time I get naked at home, on the nude beach... I connect better to Nature and with other people.

I got that I shouldn't use my weight or self image as something to stand in the way of goals I have for myself. That I should work toward them with confidence thanks to BFI.

A lack of body confidence has held me back in the past and I occasionally still have these issues but thanks to BFI, I'm able to push past this and live a life of freedom and liberation.
