I was looking to lose weight and reduce the amount of alcohol and cigarettes I consumed. In the past I had tried “health kicks” but I found that while I was able to change things short term, I wasn’t able to sustain this as part of normal life. I was looking to find a solution that I could embed in my day-to-day life.
Hon helped me understand how to eat at a more measured pace, while not drastically changing WHAT I ate. He introduced me to techniques that allowed me to appreciate every bite. With regards to alcohol and cigarettes, Hon helped me to simply be aware of how much I was drinking and smoking, and create techniques to reduce these amounts. These techniques were bespoke to me: Hon really understood the drivers for my drinking/smoking and came up with practical ideas to replace drinking/smoking with other pleasures in life.
With regards to eating, I reduced my food portions by 30-50%. I couldn’t have imagined that I’d feel satisfied with so much less. As a result I noticeably reduced my weight, and felt so good fitting into my old clothes. A surprising result was that by taking more time eating I felt a dramatic increase in my well-being. With regards to drinking and smoking, I have decreased the amount to a much lower level. On all of these Hon has given me tools and techniques which will stay with me for life.
Hon tailored his approach for what fit with me. At times it was a bit confronting or difficult to break down exactly what was triggering my behaviour. But through doing this he was able to propose ideas and techniques that really worked for me. Hon’s approach was filled with kindness – not just to me, but teaching me to be kind to myself; I can be really hard on myself but you he taught me that it’s okay to fail, or to take a moment to celebrate success, before getting back on with the work. I think you brought a real sense of fun. Something like this can be hard going but Hon was able to temper the serious moments with some fun which made all the difference. Finally I really appreciated that he never judged me. Hon jumped on board with my goals and from the moment we passed go I felt that we were working together to achieve them – regardless of his own personal views on them!
I’d have no hesitation in recommending Hon. His personal, kind, fun and easy-going yet firm approach immediately made me feel at ease. The proof is in the pudding, and even after 6 weeks of holiday I’m still using his techniques – Hon changed my habits which is a very difficult thing to do!
Thank you so much for changing my life for the better, for good!
