Are you worried about long-term success with your weight loss?

Weight Loss Surgery is life-changing
And mind-changing

We do the mind work together

Hi I'm Sonia McIndoe

I'm a certified Life Coach
specialising in bariatric weight loss
and weight loss management

Before and after picture of Sonia McIndoe's face looking much smaller 9 years on from her own weight loss surgery

At nine years post-op, I credit weight loss surgery with my weight loss,
but I credit doing the mind work with maintaining my weight loss...

Whether via bariatric surgery or medicated weight loss - the mind work is the same for life-long success.

The truth is....

Weight loss success is more about how you nourish yourself off your plate than on it!!

It’s not about the food, it's about WHY you want to emotionally eat!

Weight loss surgery is for weight loss. The mind work is for long term weight loss and maintenance success.

Together, we'll get to the bottom of why, how and when you eat and create a new pattern.

Learn new ways to get to your weight loss goals (and maintain your weight)
With small easy changes, mindset changes and sometimes mind blowing "light bulbs" - I'll help you find those missing puzzle pieces for success that you've never found before. 

Find your tribe
Connect with like-minded people and find your support system. Especially if you had surgery overseas or find it hard to meet other bariatrics in your local area.

It's free to get started
My first live workshop "8 Fundamentals for Success" is free, yet gives you huge value. You can do just the free workshop - or if you love what you learn - continue on to the next group coaching stage, "Mind Empowerment". 

I'll share my proven strategies
for success with you

Coming up 9 years post weight loss surgery, I’ve maintained my 65kgs loss.

Now I'm paying it forward, sharing the tools, strategies and techniques I learned along the way to empower YOU for long term sustainable success.

"I had the opportunity to work with Sonia and Mind Empowerment and the course helped me change my relationship with myself, my self love and my values in life and how to embrace myself for future emotional challenges.

I highly recommend Sonia and Mind Empowerment with Sonia - so worth doing it!"
