A new round starts 29.1.24🥳 Limited spaces available.


*Alright, let's face it: you may not (ever) feel "fully ready" to let go. that's the nature of quasi-recovery in an eating disorder. Let's reframe: are you committed to working on unstucking yourself in collaboration with me and a community of fellow recoverers, using an integrative, science-backed approach? If so, you're in the right place👋

What to expect:

"From Quasi To Full Recovery" is an intensive 2 month coaching programme for people in eating disorder recovery who are better, but not yet fully where they want to be. The aim of this programme is to take you out of that quasi-state by getting rid of the last bits of the eating disorder through a combination of group coaching, psycho-education, practical tasks and community support- and accountability. You will also be offered a free peer support session by a trained recovery coach, and opportunity to book in for a reduced cost session with me without the waitlist if you want extra support. Overall, the aim is to get you 'unstuck' and into action, all whilst supported by me (Amalie) and the group🤝
Throughout our two months together we will go through the most common areas where people are stuck, from sneaky food behaviours to compulsive movement, and go in with active rewiring, reframing, relearning. As a trained coach with a background in Psychology, I combine science with practical action, giving you not just the 'what to do', but also the 'why' and 'how'. I have years of experience working with people with eating disorders, both in a group- and 1-1 setting, not to mention I have lived experience recovering from my own eating disorder ten years ago. (More about me and my approach here). At £60 per week (£480 for the full two months), this programme is meant as a lower-cost option than most other group coaching programmes on the market.
Please note that spaces are limited. This is because I want every participant to feel seen and heard, not to mention creating a tight-knit community. Also note that this programme is not for everyone (please read "Is this for me?" below before applying). Got questions about this programme? Check out the FAQ at the bottom of this page, or contact me (Amalie) directly at [email protected] 👍

What former participants are saying:

"It was the best thing that I could have done! It helped me so much to challenge myself consistently. I don’t know where I would still be if I hadn’t participated. (...) Feeling understood by others, getting answers to questions I didn’t know who to ask before, not feeling odd when I share certain things because others feel similarly, learning things behind the ED, having something to guide me in my recovery, having something to hold on to, not being on my own..."
- Former participant, Germany

"I have been so happy about joining this programme, and it’s the best thing I’ve done for myself for so many years! An amazing space to get perspectives, tips, knowledge and overall a feeling of belonging in a safe community of people helping each other:) It was also very helpful to make me ACT and not just thinking about acting:) I have even got a friend from the other side of the globe, who can relate to everything I’m feeling, and we are helping each other a lot, by sharing tips and good insights."
- Former participant, Denmark

"Absolutely brilliant. The best help I have ever come across. Has helped me more then any traditional treatment. Well paced information, variety and depth of content covered. Weekly tasks and really nice usable format that can be accessed at our own pace. All round excellent."
- Former participant, United Kingdom
"Very good! informative, well structured, helpful/supportive, no triggers, divers (different kinds of tasks and resources). I made really huge progress! And a lovely, sympathetic coach! Thank you for all your tips (+ your years of experiences was extremely helpful)."
- Former participant, Germany

Is this for me?

This programme is intended for adults in recovery from eating disorders (or disordered eating) who have already done some work, but are finding themselves stuck in the 'quasi' state of recovery: better, but not fully there, and unsure of how to proceed. People of any gender, age (as long as you are 18+) or nationality are welcome - we are an international bunch!🌎

This programme is not intended for people who are in the earliest stages of recovery and/or are medically vulnerable. That is because some of the tasks and the overall intensity requires someone to be in a more stable space mentally and physically. (For more information, see the FAQ).

This programme is meant as an additional tool in recovery, and not as a replacement for medical treatment for an eating disorder. If you are in treatment for an eating disorder, please seek your team's approval before attending. The program cannot make any guarantees of recovery (nor can any form of recovery treatment- or support!), and requires participant engagement- and commitment for optimal results.


Course videos are launched every week (Mondays), but it is totally up to you when in the week you engage with the content. Re-watch as much as you like. Below is an overview of the programme schedule👇

Week 1:
We start off by understanding and identifying quasi-recovery (and it's classical behaviours) in yourself, and why it is worth targeting, alongside an introduction to my '4 R's' framework of recovery (rest, restoration, rewiring, refeeding) to help you understand where you are still stuck, and how to take practical action. We explore different approaches to recovery, and help tailor an action plan that works for you
Week 2: Building upon the first week, we go through common issues and limiting beliefs in quasi recovery, such as procrastination, perfectionism, inaction and the good 'ol Unicorn Syndrome🦄 Overall, this week is about re-framing, and about identifying and targeting your sneaky eating disorder behaviours (some of which you may not have even been consciously aware of - yup, we're getting it all to the surface!).
Week 3 & 4: Two weeks on everything related to the biology and psychology of food, (extreme) hunger, calorie needs, intuitive eating, challenging food rules/rigidity, and more🍽 Get ready to learn and unlearn, and untangle yourself from the ED when it comes to your food choices. We will also work on moving from calorie counting/meal plan to intuitive eating, when/if intuitive eating is right in recovery, orthorexia/diet culture, mental VS physical hunger, you-preference VS ED preference, fears around 'food obsession'/'emotional eating' and overall figuring out what food freedom really is.
Week 5: This week we will work on investigating and healing your relationship with exercise and movement. We'll discuss who you feel like moving, exercise in recovery, identifying disordered movement (incl. sneaky, lower-level movements), building a healthier relationship w/ movement and how/when/if to safely reintroduce exercise after recovery. If you are looking for a 'from ED to fitness competitor' programme, this is not it. On the other hand, if you are looking to truly and honestly investigate your relationship with movement and finding out what works for you (and not the ED), you're in the right place🙌
Week 6: A week dedicated to understanding the biology of set point weight, weight (restoration) and metabolism. I'll explain the basics of human metabolism, metabolic healing, weight regulation and debunk some commonly held myths related to these. The aim is to help you understand and trust your body. We also touch upon some of the common (but sometimes taboo) physical events in recovery, such as digestive issues/bloating, hyper-metabolism, rapid/disproportionate weight gain, hormonal changes and oedema💧

Week 7: From the biology of weight to the psychology of it, this week we talk everything body image, and the identity related to it (the "5th R": rediscovery). We also discuss identity and identity loss related to the ED and recovery as a broader topic: "Who am I without my eating disorder?" and "What now?". Overall, this week is about radical self-discovery and self-acceptance, beyond just your body🤍
Week 8: You did it! For the last week of the course, we're wrapping up everything we've worked on and learned so far, and re-capping when necessary. You guys will get the chance to request topics to re-visit, so overall this week is left open (but will be equally as packed w/content as former weeks). We'll also work on relapse prevention through structuring a "Relapse Prevention Plan (RPP)", and overall moving to independence after the programme and making that transition easier🌸 (But don't worry, you will still have community access after the course, and a chance to re-do the content unlimited/free for the weeks after!)
(Please note that the schedule may be subject to minor adjustments.)
Every day: Connect with me and the group through our closed "Recovery circle" (be anonymous if you like). We'll have recovery win threads, support and motivate one another, answer questions and share experiences (in a safe moderated, non-triggering manner🤍). You also have full access to the course workbook and templates, plus access to re-watch course content at your own pace.
Every week: Weekly live Q&A/recovery hangout where I answer questions and/or discuss/elaborate on requested topics. You're encouraged to bring a fearfood (I will bring old fearfoods of mine in unity🙋🏼‍♀️). And don't worry, you don't need to put your camera or audio on, you can join silently, or simply type in the chat! The live is recorded and saved for those who can't join live. Additionally, every week has a weekly written task the group do together.
Knowledge is power

This programme is for those who like knowing the science behind eating disorders and recovery, based on the latest scientific research (rather than outdated cliches). Here you don't just learn the what to do's, but also the why's🤓

It takes a village

An important part of this programme is the community support it offers through our closed "Recovery Circle" group. Engage with the group as little or as often as you like. Whether you want to anonymously lurk or find a recovery buddy, you're welcome here👋

At your own pace

Watch (and re-watch) content at your own pace and preference. Break up content throughout the week, or pick a day or two to focus intensively - its all up to you. The lives will also be saved for you to watch at your own schedule🗓

More from former participants:

"After months in quasi recovery, this was the beginning of my journey to full recovery. The group programme was so helpful for me and my eating disorder hated it. Amalie really knows how sneaky the ED is and what she is talking about. After many professionals had unintentionally triggered me, Amalie was the first one who didn’t. I would recommend the programme to anyone who is willing to accept that many of the eating disorder beliefs and food behaviours are caused by the state that you are in, meaning you are not at your body’s happy weight. And I think it is for people who really are determined to work on themselves and challenge sneaky behaviours."
- Former participant, Germany

The group coaching program was a very positive and enriching experience for me. I gained a lot of insight and knowledge from the videos and live sessions, where you, Amalie, explained the concepts and strategies of recovery in a simple and understandable way. You also answered our questions with wisdom and gave us practical tips and exercises to apply in our daily lives. I enjoyed the interactive format of the live sessions, where we could participate in discussions and bring up questions. It was nice to hear from other people who were on the same journey as me, and to learn from their perspectives and experiences. The group was a safe and supportive space. Reading the fears, struggles and wins of others made me feel less isolated and more connected to a community of people who were facing similar challenges and goals as me. I really appreciate your fast and informative replies. (I’m really amazed by how fast you always replied and how helpful these comments were). The group also helped me to stay accountable and motivated throughout the program. The program made me realize that I’m not alone and that there is hope and a way out. I am thankful for this opportunity, for the amazing people in the group and for you, Amalie.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ):

Q: "English is not my first language. Can I still attend?"
A: Yes! This programme is designed with non-native english speakers in mind, and my estimation is that at least half of participants will be non-native english speakers (incl. myself - I am originally from Norway). As long as you have a basic understanding of English, e.g you are able to read this without major difficulties, you will be fine. if there's something you don't understand language wise, do let me know and I am happy to clarify.
Q: "I'm under 18, can I still attend?"
A: This programme is designed for adults in recovery, thus if you are under 18 you will need written parental consent and ideally participate with a parent present. Be aware that this course may discuss adult themes which is not appropriate for a young audience.

Q: "What about time zones?"
A: I've designed the programme structure with different time zones in mind. You can engage with the content in your own preferred time, no matter where you are in the world. The only content that is held live is the weekly lives. These are held Sunday evenings UK/EU time, which equals morning/afternoon if you are in US/Canada. If you are unable to join live, you can watch the replay☺️

Q: "What to I need to attend?"
A computer/tablet/phone to access course materials, and ideally a notebook + pen, plus at least a few hours to dedicate per week. You will get a printable PDF workbook, but you do not have to print this out - instead you can write the tasks into your notebook. Aaaand that's about it👍 You'll create a profile which you will use for access to programme and support group. In order to actually benefit from the programme fully, you have to be committed to also follow through on the tasks.

Q: "I'm underweight. Can I join?"
A: Although there is no 'weight criteria' (that would be kind of weird!) you must at least be medically stable (mentally and physically) in order to attend safely and harvest the benefits. If you are unsure, please discuss with your treatment professionals, and do not join if this will interfere with your current treatment and/or if you are medically vulnerable. If you are still early in recovery, you may not find this programme as beneficial as it is not designed with early recovery in mind, but more so for those who have already done some work and are cognitively in a space to actively engage.

Q: "I consider myself recovered/I am not diagnosed with an eating disorder, but I still struggle with (insert disordered behaviour). Is this programme for me?"
A: Yes, this programme is very much for you. One of the most common concerns I get reg. coaching is whether or not the person is 'sick enough' to 'need/deserve' a coaching spot, and the answer to that is always 'yes, you do'. I have never turned away someone for 'not being sick enough' because there is no such thing. You do not need a diagnosis or having struggled a certain length or severity, if you're looking to improve your relationship with food, movement and/or body image, this is for you. 'Worst case' you may find that some bits do not apply for you (anymore), if so take what fits and leave what doesn't. If you had no struggles what so ever, chances are you wouldn't be here, reading this. (unless you fit the scenario below).

Q: "I am a parent/partner/friend of someone with an eating disorder, or a practitioner in the field (coach, therapist, dietician, doctor, social worker, health care worker etc.), can I join for educational purposes?"
A: Yes, you can! It would be helpful if you let me know prior that that is why you are joining. Please do note that if you are participating as a practitioner, the course content does have copyright, meaning you are not allowed to take and repurpose content as your own. You are of course allowed to use the knowledge in your own work, and to take inspiration. If unsure of the line between what is inspiration vs what is copying, you can always drop me an email to double check. If you are looking to share a quote etc. from the programme, please email me for consent prior.

Q: "Is my participation anonymous?"
A: Yes. I (and my mentee) will be able to see the information you provide to me when signing up (name, email, age, country etc.), but it is up to you what you share with the group (the group is closed and for members only). I will never share your personal details with anyone else, thus your attendance is confidential. You can technically join with a pseudonym if you prefer that.

More from former participants:

"Amalie is a lifesaver. Literally. Her 8-week “From Quasi to Full Recovery” programme has been an incredible booster in my recovery and I will never be able to thank her enough for her brilliant work. I first discovered her work through her podcast “Recovery Talk” and wondered, when considering whether or not to join the programme: “Can't I just listen to the podcast and make up my own programme?” Although Amalie's podcast, and now her Substack articles, are incredible mines of information, I found the programme's content, organisation and articulation immensely valuable.

First, the videos uploaded at the beginning of every week allow us to really understand EDs, and “knowledge is power”, as they say. This allows participants to be independent in their recovery journey, as they build a strong foundation to really understand what is going on in their bodies, in their brains, and can take action accordingly. It's easier to take a step back from the ED and defuse from disordered thoughts and behaviours when we understand what is going on! Second, Amalie regularly suggests questions to reflect on as well as one or several action-oriented tasks that help us put things into practice. “Let's kick EDs”, one might say when working on this! Participants consequently get to know themselves better (their true self, not their ED self), how to practically “piss off” their ED, and can get back to their exercise sheets when feeling a bit lost or going a bit “limp”. Plus, we can always redo the tasks or adapt them to our needs; this is not a one-off, rigid programme, but one that empowers participants to find what works for them. Third, the programme's community is a huge support. The Recovery Circle, where we can share wins, questions and reflections with Amalie and other participants, is a real safe space, brilliantly moderated by Amalie who is incredibly present, committed, professional and kind. Being able to exchange daily throughout the week if we need and want it is a real asset of this programme, and the weekly lives on Sundays were another opportunity to discuss important topics, support each other, ask for clarification if needed, etc.... in a safe way, as Amalie is very wary of possible triggers!
I still have a long way to go, “From Quasi to Full Recovery” is an intensive programme that takes time and effort, but it is definitely worth it – paying for it, honestly, also motivated me... Moreover, it allows us to learn so, so much, so that we might even get to help other people! I can't tell you how many passionate discussions I've had with people around me, telling them about the fascinating things I have learned about EDs, diet culture, human biology, etc. One doesn't have to become an anti-diet culture advocate of course, one doesn't have to talk about the programme if one doesn't want to…That's the beauty of Amalie's work and support: she allows us to assimilate the content she provides us with and use it as we see fit, whilst fostering pro-recovery thoughts and behaviours in a safe and supportive environment. She managed to make this programme both very accessible and advanced (as in, it goes in depth), both very serious and joyous, both very wide-ranging and specific (as in, every participant can adapt it to their own needs), both very safe and challenging (as in, we get to push ourselves and step out of our comfort zone beyond what we could imagine whilst being supported in a safe space). Amalie cannot cure me, but I now feel like I hold all the cards to reach full recovery. I am at a loss for words to express my gratitude to Amalie, whose work I will definitely keep following and recommending. Maybe the best words are two simple, yet very powerful ones? Thank you. So much."
