AIMS OF THIS COURSE

Eating disorders of all types are complex in themselves and perhaps are only uncovered once someone has sought therapeutic support for other issues.

This two day experiential course aims to give those looking to expand their professional knowledge of the complexities of eating disorders an understanding of how to identify disordered eating and support recovery. The course will cover the importance of nutrition/nutritionist involvement in the process of recovery with a module on nutrition which has been developed by a leading Nutritionist and Senior Lecturer at Brighton University.

This course is an essential resource for professionals looking to expand their toolkit, and gain a better understanding of working ethically and competently with clients suffering with eating disorders.
This course has been approved by the British Psychological Society.

“TAKE THE FOOD, WEIGHT & SHAPE OFF YOUR MIND”

Change your life forever, dieting doesn’t work, therefore, make changes that will make you happy, ‘diet no more and gain the piece of mind you have always yearned for and learn the tools needed to keep it that way’.

I promise I will not weigh you and clap along with everyone else if you have lost weight and I will guide you appropriately if gaining weight is fearful for you. I will not suggest a food replacement liquid diet or detoxing on the latest fad to hit the papers, and yet if you invest in time with me you can permanently change your relationship with food and your mindset!

DATES TBA

CHRIST CHURCH, HIGH STREET, TUNBRIDGE WELLS,

Join my courses and learn exactly what the National Centre of Eating Disorders has taught me, that you can live your life differently and be happy with both your size & shape and gain health both physically and mentally as a bonus!

Over the two day course I will;

  • Enlighten you about the nature of your problem, the effects of dieting, the ways in which the body controls appetite / weight and other matters relating to nutrition.
  • You will learn psychotherapeutically why you behave as you do with food and other mind altering substances.
  • I will teach you how to recognise the emotions concealed beneath food cravings, and how to deal with them as they arise.
  • I will support you to change your mindset and in turn change your life and your health.
  • This course will help you to reduce stress/anxiety effectively and to enhance your sense of control over food/thoughts and over life in general and undo the part of the problem which has become a habit.
  • As part of the course both self-esteem, body image and assertiveness issues will be addressed and wound seamlessly into the course.
  • Guide you back into viewing food in its proper context and as an enjoyable way of keeping you alive and well.
  • Finally, I will help you come to see food as a friend, something to enjoy and savour as nourishment for both your body and soul.

take the food, weight & shape off your mind-course outline

This popular and successful course will run for 2 Saturdays and the investment will be £160.
