Repair Your Relationships with Food, Body and Soul.
Love food ~ Love Your Body ~ Love Yourself
It’s that time of year again. Everywhere you look it’s diet adverts and new exercise regimes. You know that last year your eating was a bit out of control and that you could have moved your body a bit more but the last thing you want to do is set yourself up to fail at another diet, all over again.
You want a new way of doing things, you want things to feel different in your life but you don’t want to set a load of the same New Year's Resolutions that you just know you won’t keep.
You’re looking for a way of making permanent changes, feeling better about every aspect of your life, feeling much more in alignment with YOU, where you want to take care of yourself, eat well and move more, without it becoming yet another chore.
You want to feel more positive in your life, have better balance in all areas and put yourself back on the priority list without dropping any of the balls you're juggling.
You’re looking for a new approach and you’ve just found it, here!
There is hope...
I totally get it, you really want things to be different this time and you know there's more to life than endless dieting and being miserable. You know how to create healthy meals; you just don't seem to be able to stop craving the foods you know aren't that great for you.
You want to be kind to your body and to be able to look in the mirror and like what you see. But the idea of hauling your ass outside in the wind and rain to do that 5K just really isn't appealing. With all the other stuff you've got going on right now, you just can't see how things can change but you're so ready for a new way!
Are we a good FIt?
My name is Rachel Swann and I work with women like you to shake off the shackles of serial dieting, body loathing and emotional eating and to step into a new paradigm of self appreciation and self care.
By shifting your emphasis from punishing yourself to supporting yourself I can take you from self loathing, exhaustion and overwhelm to eating well, moving your body and loving life in a short space of time.
I know where you're coming from because I've been there; I’ve been that mum who hides in the pantry eating a whole box of Jaffa cakes when life got tough but I didn’t want my kids to know. I’ve been that girl who ate through an entire cheesecake when I’ve had bad news.
I'm also a coach who has worked with women to stop them bingeing every time things got rough, who's helped women feel good enough and helped single mums eat better whilst including their kids in the cooking and reducing their shopping bills.
I've helped working mums create time for exercise and self care, without dropping any of the balls they're currently juggling and I've helped women get out of the cycle of secretly eating the leftovers after everyone's left the kitchen.
I've worked with women all over the world to support them in leaving food and body shame behind and creating a more fulfilled life. And over the past 8 years I've been featured in Families magazine, in the Yorkshire Evening Post and as a regular contributor on BBC radio.
How will the course work?
Module 1 ~ Set your intentions for the course. Really start to get to know yourself again so that you know what you want and what tweaks you need to make in your life to reduce the stress and end the emotional eating.
Module 2 ~ Using what you've learned from module 1, start to implement the small but impactful tweaks that will make your life easier, less stressful and reduce the overeating. By setting boundaries in month 2, you'll start to feel more energetic and less tired.
Module 3 ~ In this module we'll be looking at boosting confidence, self esteem and body confidence and working with our body to support it through a totally different approach to exercise, in order to nurture it. We'll also be looking at colours and clothing so that you feel amazing everyday regardless of your size or shape.
Module 4 ~ In this module we'll be looking at all the diet baggage you're carrying and learning how to get rid of it. We'll transform your relationship with food, learn how to eat intuitively and get back to a 'normal' relationship with food.
Module 5 ~ In module 5 we'll be looking at self care; not the bubble bath and candles type of self care but integrating what you've learned about yourself, your relationships with the people around you, how you want to support your body and your eating habits. We'll be looking at how all of this constitutes self care and how you need to integrate it all, so that you are looking after your mental and physical health equally.
Module 6 ~ In module 6 we'll look back at how far you've come and see the changes you've made. You will have worked really hard on changing your habits in all areas of life, including exercise and eating and you'll deserve a huge amount of recognition. We'll also be putting plans in place for you continuing with what you've implemented and what you want to achieve going forwards and what support you'll need to do it.
In weeks 13 and 26 there will be no live class but I'll be helping you to create your own Bonus Mini Retreat where you'll spend at least 1 hour doing something 'just for you'.
This course includes a huge amount of input from me. Each week when you send your completed worksheets to me you'll receive an audio recording with specific and personal mentoring. You will also have access to me within the Facebook group whenever you need it, so you can ask for help whenever things arise.
Although the modules are outlined above, because we'll be working so closely together on your specific situation, I can adapt the classes to benefit you as we work through the material.
This is more than a group programme, this is personal food and body coaching and mentoring, within a supportive group of women, all working to repair their relationships with food and their bodies.
Beautiful Swans is my signature programme, designed to help you to leave emotional eating, dieting and body loathing in the past. It's everything I've learned over the past 8 years working with my one to one clients, laid out in a logical, straightforward way, so that each module builds on what went before. It's going to give you everything you need to change how you feel about your life, about your body and about food.
I know it's gonna help you ~ I'd love to have you on board.

What previous clients have said
I wasn't in a good place when I came to Beautiful Swans. I just hated myself and had a chaotic relationship with food. Having just completed the course, I am in a much better frame of mind and thanks to Rachel's guidance and support, I now have the tools I need to move forward and I feel as if my mind and body are no longer battling against each other.
The program is not a quick fix but it's about taking some time to look inwards, to re-evaluate your relationship with food and yourself and it's whole ethos is something that you can take with you through life. Rachel has been in the same situation as many people that go to her and knew exactly where I was coming from.
Her support and tools included on the program such as workbooks and journals were invaluable in helping me see where I needed to make changes. I will continue to use them to make sure I am keeping the momentum up.
I see Beautiful Swans as one of the most important investments in myself that I have ever made. I'm learning to be a friend to myself and I am honestly so glad I did it. Thank you Rachel.
I took part in Rachel Swann’s Beautiful Swans programme in late 2015. The programme is highly experiential with common-sense tips and the content itself has a lovely rhythm and pace to it, gently stretching you out of your comfort zone. It is also a programme that you can use over and over again.
Rachel has a gentle, easy way about her and inspires you to take confidence that you have the power over food, not vice-versa, and supports you to take positive steps to regain that control and balance.
I would highly recommend Beautiful Swans AND Rachel’s skills to anyone who needed support in dealing with poor eating habits or patterns that need to be broken.
Rachel has a huge number of practical techniques that are easy to remember and use and I have been hugely impressed by the results.
I have no hesitation in recommending Rachel's skills and can't praise her highly enough.
I know you're probably having a few niggles about whether this is right for you. That's normal when you're embarking on something new.
Maybe you’re wondering if this will be just like all the times that went before, starting a new diet or exercise regime and just setting yourself up to fail. The beauty of the Beautiful Swans approach is that there is no failure and no wagon to fall off. We observe, we tweak, we test and then we do it all again to make things better and better and better.
Maybe you’re thinking it feels like it’s too time consuming. It’s around one hour a week, that’s one hour out of 168 hours in a week. You’ll have a 30 minute class with me and then around 30 minutes of journaling, thinking and exploring to do and everything else fits into your daily life! If you don’t think you can spare yourself one hour a week – then you REALLY need to invest in this course!
Perhaps the financial investment feels like a stretch. Of course it will; spending money on yourself can always feel scary but it will be so worth it, when you see how life changing it can be. Don't forget, you can pay over 6 or 10 months as well, to make it easier to fit into your budget.

After years of over eating and a poor body image, Rachel helped me to realise that my core issue was my inability to trust my body's natural hunger signals. I've since learnt to tune into both my hunger and satisfaction levels, and also to listen to what my body is telling me to eat. I now enjoy my meals and I leave the table feeling good instead of bloated and unhappy.
Rachel also taught me that one of the main reasons I struggled with my weight was my inability to put my needs before any one else's; so not making time for a walk or taking a proper lunch break . Rachel helped me to realise that taking care of ME was very important and it would lead to me being better able to take care of my family.
I've realised that by doing little things just for me, leads to my feeling good about myself and then sets up a positive chain of thoughts and actions.
I really enjoyed working with Rachel. Her approach is authentic and practical but also inspirational. Having struggled with being over weight herself, she really understands what it feels like to be unhappy with your body and I found it so inspiring that she did many of things she encouraged me to do! She is a great role model.
I would recommend Rachel to anyone who is suffering alone with poor body image or a lack of confidence. She will show you a better way to live, which will ultimately lead to a happier outlook on your life.
I’d like to say a big thank-you to sweet Rachel Swann. I purchased Rachel’s Beautiful Swans programme and although I’m pretty slow in the process, it’s already proving useful.
Yesterday morning I had a 30-minute coaching call with her, to work on issues arising from the Beautiful Swans programme. We actually uncovered something pretty mahoosive relating to why I have weight issues, and she skillfully helped me to put this into context and gave me a few pointers on next steps.
I’ve battled quietly with an eating disorder for over 30 years. In one 30-minute session, Rachel managed to answer a few questions I didn’t even know I had … and with knowledge, comes power and freedom. Thank you so much, Rachel, for your support, gentle nature and compassion; you are a fabulous coach and hypnotherapist, and I’d definitely recommend your Beautiful Swans programme – thank you! x
At the start I asked a lot of questions because I wasn’t sure if Rachel’s service was right for me. She was patient and really responsive and reassuring.
I thought I knew myself pretty well and what my issues were but by working with Rachel I found that things I thought were insignificant were having a huge impact on my life.
My first goal was to lose my emotional relationship with food and end my constant battle with food and I have really moved forward on that. I really appreciated the coaching aspect and not just the hypnotherapy and I really value that.
Working with Rachel has been a really great investment on a personal level.”
