Eating Psychology Coach
In June 2017 I graduated from the Institute for the Psychology of Eating as an Eating Psychology Coach.
What is Eating Psychology Coaching?
Eating Psychology Coaching is an exciting and cutting edge approach developed by the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. It effectively addresses weight concerns, binge eating, overeating, body image challenges, and various nutrition related health concerns. As an Eating Psychology Coach, my approach is positive and empowering. I don’t see your eating challenges merely as a sign that “something is wrong with you” – but as a place where we can more fully explore some of the personal dimensions in life that impact food, weight and health. Oftentimes, our eating challenges are connected to work, money, relationship, family, intimacy, life stress and so much more. By working on the places that are most relevant for you, success is more easily achieved. As an Eating Psychology Coach, I look to support you with coaching strategies and nutrition principles that are nourishing, doable, sustainable, and that yield results.
How is My Approach Different?
For far too long, we’ve been inundated by negative messages about food, weight and diet. We’ve been told that we’re willpower weaklings or that we need more control. We have been told it is a simple question of calories in versus calories out. We hear so much conflicting advice from experts and every magazine contains a new 'miracle diet'.
The result is people are confused about what to eat, and how to have a happy relationship with food and a healthy metabolism.
As an Eating Psychology Coach my aim is to accompany women and men on a journey to a healthier, kinder, more compassionate relationship to food and body. I believe we all have an innate body wisdom that has been pushed down and ignored for so long that we no longer know how to access it.
By eliminating all the “shoulds and shouldn’ts”, I focus on what’s right for your body and your personal style. As we work together in this way, eating and health issues become a place of exploration. Instead of seeing such challenges as the enemy, they become opportunities for growth and self-improvement.
