Weight and Wellbeing

Negative attitudes towards fatness are common, and the pressure to be slim or the 'right' shape or size pervasive. Additionally, providers of slimming products spend vast sums of money trying to convince dieters that, among the numerous others, their's is the one that will work. It's no wonder therefore that people feel they ought to lose weight, and in order to do so they must go on a diet or adhere to a strict exercise regime.

However, research shows that whilst most diets produce desired results in the short term, in the long term they have high failure rates. The reason for this is that they become burdensome, intrusive or simply beyond the willpower of the dieter. Boredom or despondency then sets in, followed by dietary lapse and consequently, weight regain.

There is another way though.

Do you feel you are overly concerned about your weight, shape or size? Are you obese? Do you feel out of control with food or spend too much time worrying about it? Have you tried dieting and/or exercise regimes only to find the benefits temporary? Do you lack what it takes to make the change?

As a National Centre for Eating Disorders Master Practitioner Diploma holder, I am trained to work with people with weight concerns.

For those struggling with their weight the treatment programme I provide does not require going to the gym or adherence to a strict diet. 'How can it be effective?' you may ask. It works by gradually replacing old unhelpful habits with new healthy behaviours that are lifestyle-intrinsic, so they feel achievable, natural and (most importantly) sustainable.

I will help you:

  • Discover the origins of your food concerns
  • Understand the meanings behind your over eating
  • Gain new knowledge and skills
  • Build resilience
  • Increase willpower
  • Improve self-esteem, confidence and assertiveness
  • Overcome old unhelpful habits
  • Learn new helpful behaviours
  • Develop a new, healthy relationship with food
  • Enhance physical and psychological wellbeing
