What happens in each session?
Sonia facilitates each session, working through the topic of the evening and completing worksheets with you and your group with discussion on anything relevant to post-operative weight loss and/or weight maintenance.


Group coaching 
Sessions are primarily as a group and will at times, be broken into smaller groups for further discussion.

Implementation and reflection
Ideally, you'll implement the learnings and tools into your daily life, sharing what worked or didn't, using both the participant-only Facebook group and Zoom calls.

Private Facebook support group
Set up exclusively for your group, this is a private forum and a safe place to be honest, ask questions and not only be a bariatric patient yourself, but also a bariatric buddy and support for others. 


Recorded sessions for your future reference
All sessions are recorded and uploaded to the private Facebook group so you’ll have access to this for ever.

"I want to post my grateful appreciation for Sonia McIndoe and her coaching. 

Sonia gave me skills and confidence that I see I have put in place when I look back.

I asked for help and my boss didn't think less of me. I set boundaries. And finally, I shared with my number 1 supporter how I feel about me and how I need his help to move that...that act of vulnerability was a long time coming but met with nothing but love.

Thanks again Sonia, you have helped me to make some changes that will be life giving."

"It was a ‘wake up call’ when Sonia asked me questions that guided me to my own answers and self awareness. Working with Sonia who has been there and really understands the weight loss journey, made a big difference.

I felt safe and enjoyed discovering my core values and how to use these to overcome mindless eating which was extremely valuable.

A year later I am still using these tools in both my personal and professional life. I highly recommend Sonia as a coach specialising in WLS. If you are considering coaching with Sonia I recommend you are ready to be honest and wanting to make real change in your
real life."

- Olivia Mitchell 

"I was embarrassed about who and how I was when I came to Sonia. I was going back to old habits and not thinking about what I was putting in my mouth and I was certainly not doing anything for me.

Coaching with Sonia enabled me to realise I was not looking after myself.

I went from not doing anything for me to prioritising my time for my health and well-being, including regular exercise that I enjoy and eating nourishing meals."


"Discover the beautiful ‘you’ inside and out... 
and the incredible life you have, that you're free to craft daily for true fulfilment"
