Are you struggling with shame and fear around weight, eating and body image?
Have you felt tired, lost, a bit confused, and stressed out by the onslaught of information relating to food and body?
Do you long to find peace and freedom from the cycles of yo-yo dieting, emotional eating, over eating, and negative body image? Perhaps you have tapes running through your mind that consume your thoughts and steal your joy and peace when it comes to eating and weight.
As women, we often become trapped in our culture’s view of how we should look, eat and move our bodies in order to be healthy, loved and accepted.
We are so much more than the food we eat and and how are bodies look. God’s idea of beauty and how He sees us is so much different than our own.
You can find a way of becoming more relaxed around food and body!
How to get started
The two main components that are used to help you overcome this struggle are:
- Eating Psychology offers nourishing strategies for the most common eating and health challenges. These challenges are often connected to lifestyle, work, money, longing for connection, identity, fulfillment, and much more. Everyone has unique relationships with food, driven by beliefs, emotions and past experiences. Eating psychology sees our challenges with food, weight and health as an opportunity to grow and evolve, while honouring all of who we are, Spirit Soul and Body.
- Mind and Body Nutrition goes far beyond “diets”. There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to eating and body. All of us have our own unique food story, and what we eat is only half of that story. The other half involves who we are as eaters. Often how we do food is how we do life. Together we look at how stress, breathing, relaxation, awareness, meal timing, and pleasure influence our metabolism, calorie burning, digestion, health issues, and eating challenges.
