WHERE TO FIND MIND DETOX
- Payneham and Aldgate, South Australia
What others are saying
Before reaching out for help, I felt that to overcome my binge eating would be a huge challenge, a battle that I had been unable to get control over independently for well over five years. Before meeting Dorota for the first time, I felt that the answer to my binge eating and weight gain was going to be a huge effort on my behalf, a big struggle which I would need to defeat! However, within just two sessions I realised the exact opposite was true: rather than mustering all my inner strength and effort, actually I needed to just let go of it…something which I just needed some extra support and care to do. I genuinely cannot believe how easy it was to overcome something that seemed so huge and impossible to overpower on my own. I only wish I had found Dorota sooner! I genuinely feel as if she is a magician!
Thank you sooo much!!!!!
Had my final session with Dorota and I’m feeling really good about it all. Some issues I was having with my ex (I have intervention order and history of abuse from him) have not gone away but I feel so much stronger and confident in myself when dealing with them. I’m no longer having issues with guilt like I was before and I’m just happier overall. I feel I’ve been able to cut the emotional ties with a lot of the issues I was and still am having I’m still frequently having court hearings and I’m in a very messy divorce/custody/Intervention order process/battle. However none of this affects me the way it did before my sessions with Dorota.
I’m also able to be a better mum because I have more patience and less frustration or even anger when dealing with my kids. My health is improving because I was having digestive issues as a result of stress and my over eating and binge eating habits. I was getting help with this from a Chinese doctor, however because I could not stick to the diet I was supposed to be on, I wasn’t really seeing the improvement that I should have. Now I’m able to eat very cleanly, I never binge anymore and I don’t overeat either. I am now losing weight. My focus is no longer on food. I used to spend my days obsessing over it.
These eating habits have been a constant battle for me for many years but had gotten to the point I felt I couldn’t control myself at all anymore and I had gained 20 kgs over the past couple years. The work Dorota has done with me has been amazing, uplifting and empowering. I am so grateful for her help. It seems to have happened so easily, I never imagined that this problem could be helped this much from just 6 sessions with Dorota. I’m so glad I found her.
My life is much happier and brighter overall and there was never any focus on my eating habits yet they have been fixed along with everything else. I have also started a new relationship and everything seems to be finally coming together for me. Excited for the next chapter,
Thank you Dorota
I’ve looked at the bread box several times, and haven’t feel anything inside me wanting to eat it. Yay! Big step there!! I can’t believe how much control I have inside me, I am truly amazed. (txt message sent after a session #2)
For a long time I thought I had an eating disorder, but no one seemed to recognize compulsive overeating. I wasn’t anorexic or bulimic, so I didn’t fit this category. I was just weak and needed more self control.
Dorota’s website was my first glimpse of hope for a long time. Help for ‘compulsive overeating’, that’s me!! I need that, and it has changed my life. I am no longer a compulsive overeater, and the main difference was that she didn’t focus on food. She focused on me as a whole person. To Dorota I didn’t have a problem, just bad habits, unresolved emotions and negative past experiences that I didn’t need to be carrying with me. The process for me was emotional at times, but not as hard as living the way I had been living. For the first time in years I began to feel happy.
A month later, I am not a different person on the outside, but on the inside I have peace and I know I will lose more weight slowly because I am in control of my eating. For the first time though it doesn’t matter, I like being me, I have my self worth back and I don’t need to be different to be happy. I eat to live, not live to eat! The main difference for me was not focusing on what I had been focusing on for so long. Food was not my problem, the way I felt about myself was.

Just letting you know that I’m doing really great! No urge to binge eat or throw up since we last met. I’m well aware that the urge might come back but now I feel like I have the tools to overcome it. My future looks bright, my past is not important and I’m working on putting myself first.

I am happy to tell you that my desire to be healthy has kicked in and so far I have lost 4 kg* which feels really good.
But mostly what feels good is that I can look at food without emotion and now see it and calmly decide if I want it or not. That is so empowering!! It never ceases to amaze me how simple that shift is. I feel free of the emotions that I have been carrying around. I don’t think we realise how they weigh us down ( excuse the pun). The program has freed me of the guilt and sadness that I bottled up and has made me feel much happier and feel like I am in control of my happiness, not those around me.
Another byproduct of it is that I feel a little more assertive and don’t feel like I must be the one in the wrong all the time. Like I now feel I have the right to be treated well. (email, sent after finishing the program)
Going through this process changed so much. At the back of my mind I am constantly thinking about ‘the happy’. I have that in my head now, I am happy. And last week I had the urge, it felt that I needed something to make me feel better. But there was a little voice at the back of my head, going: Really? Really? Is it really going to make you feel better? And I listened to this voice now!
It has been different and even my husband is seeing the difference. Even eating dinner now, I am eating it and then when I am full, I am stopping, whereas before I would eat everything you can find as fast as you can. All the little changes, and my husband is noticing it as well.
It does make food taste better not to have any no-nos. I haven’t lost much weight yet, but I am feeling so good that I know I will. I know that dieting and counting calories doesn’t work for me, I am just doing clean eating and eating healthy. It is more important for me to eat healthy, but not obsessing about it. I want to enjoy a bit of a cake. It feels like it is a new me, a different mindset. (excerpt from a session#5, recorded with Ella’s written permission)
Thank you for giving me my life back. I used to think I can’t relax and enjoy my days and now I am relaxed and enjoying my life. It was like a little vicious cycle that I was going through. Now looking back I can see how self sabotaging it was. It is also good to know that I am not really this horrible person that can’t control herself and her food. I was so sick of this fight – that’s why I came to you – I was just sick of this fight. I was sick of food consuming my thoughts every day and having such a bad impact on my life.
This process really changed everything for me, before I was looking to diet books to change myself, but without actually working up there on my happiness and confidence and that type of thing but that’s really the way to go. And I would like to say this to every girl that is buying a latest diet book: that, actually, “it is about YOU”. I am really happy that I have changed my perspective.

I was stuck in a time warp of attempting to achieve personal goals and continually hitting the wall. I was referred to see Dorota as a possible alternative to the many other options which I had previously tried eg hypnosis. Dorota’s strong academic background gave me confidence in being open to this style of psychological approach, an approach quite foreign to me. (I am a cynic by nature and need something more than brochures to convince me to try something.) I was pleasantly surprised at how few sessions it took Dorota to work through the mental barriers and habits I had developed for myself over time. I found five sessions were sufficient for me to see a change in my personal thinking patterns. I now spend more time working towards my goals rather than beating myself up along the way – a much better and kinder place to be in. I continue to use the positive thinking techniques Dorota developed for me. Dorota is delightfully personable, highly skilled individual. I am glad I know her. She made a difference.(feeling stuck, addiction*)
I am not a different person on the outside, but on the inside I have peace and I know I will lose weight slowly because I am in control of my eating. For the first time though it doesn’t matter, I like being me, I have my self-worth back and I don’t need to be different to be happy. Now I eat to live, not live to eat! (binge eating*)
I wanted to say a very heartfelt thank you for the time, knowledge and kindness you invested in me over the last few weeks. You have truly helped me to open the doors to my heart and soul and now I stand high in my freedom and light. (bulimia*)

Hi Dorota, thanks to your work wedding was a big success. I am feeling much better now and confidence if growing daily. Words can’t express the gratitude I have for you and your work, so many thanks! (anxiety*)
I came to see Dorota when I was searching for solutions of how to deal with my anxiety and anger and to refocus on what I wanted to achieve in the future. After a few sessions, I felt notably uplifted and now I don’t really get anxious and can use my ‘anger’ more positively. I also feel more confident in myself and motivated to do many new things without any fear. (anxiety*)
Hi Dorota, last session was so profound for me! I feel so different, huge shift in perceiving has happened within. I can’t find good enough words to thank you for your amazing work.
