Mind Your Health
Changing your diet and lifestyle requires a change in behaviour. Our behaviour is a result of our thoughts and emotions. The way we react to information is all down to our beliefs and values. These are often formed in childhood and grow up with us.
What is your relationship like with food? Disordered? You may not have an eating disorder but disordered eating. I can help you with this.
Why is it so hard to make healthy choices? You put in all your effort to a diet or an exercise plan and then “fall off the wagon” feeling absolutely lousy for failing, and beat yourself up for not being able to stick to it.
Do you eat when you are bored, stressed, upset or tired? We have confused our brains that we can ‘eat our emotions’ to make us feel better, but eating doesn’t resolve the reasons above and make us feel worse in the long term. A vicious cycle is created.
I help you start to break these habits and transform your thinking to be healthier, happier, leaner and fitter for the long term. Plus you still get to enjoy treats!
Payment plans available for this programme.
We start with an evaluation of where you are today and your past eating habits to find out how the food you eat affects your health goals. I spend time listening to your history; any factors that have got you to where you are now, any health conditions past, present and any you may be predisposed to. We devise a plan of action for the next few weeks to help you with your mindset and break bad habits eg binge eating.
Keeping a Food and Mood journal is key for progress. Any setbacks are learning opportunities. Menu plans and recipes are available or you may adapt your own eating plans to be more therapeutic.
We get together every week for an hour where we explore mindset changes to enable you to make habit changes a piece of cake.
I give you the tools to be ‘free’ yourself from self-sabotaging behaviour and deal with challenges in your life.
We explore your goals and link them to something that you can relate to. This makes them easier to achieve and sustainable.
Stress management is key to health so we spend time looking at your energy drains and revivers.
The progress you make with your health goals and mindset work spills over to other areas of your life. The relationship you have with food is often mirrored with your relationship with yourself. This programme may also give you more confidence and raise your self-esteem so that you see and feel differently about other areas of your life. Having a more positive outlook on challenging situations at work or at home is less of a drain on your energy.
This programme is ideally over 12-24 sessions.
