What is Eating Psychology?
Eating Psychology is a positive, empowering and transformational approach that’s designed for anyone who eats. Each of us has a unique, fascinating, and ever changing relationship with food. Eating Psychology affirms the primary importance of this relationship. It sees our challenges with eating, weight and health not as an indication that we’re broken, but as a beautiful opportunity to grow and evolve. Previously, Eating Psychology has been limited to those with clinical eating disorders. Eating Psychology though, is for everyone. It affirms that our relationship with food has important lessons to teach us if we choose to listen. And it recognizes that our challenges with eating, weight and health are intimately connected to other primary life dimensions – relationship, family, work, sexuality, our search for meaning and fulfillment, and so much more.
What is Mind-Body Nutrition?
Mind-Body Nutrition advances the practice of clinical nutrition by exploring the psychophysiology of how thoughts, feelings and beliefs impact nutritional metabolism and health. It goes far beyond classical nutrition by focusing on the fascinating connections between brain, body, and behavior. Simply put, what we eat is only half of the story of good nutrition. The other half is who we are as eaters. Mind-Body Nutrition reveals how stress physiology, the relaxation response, breathing, awareness, pleasure, meal timing and much more profoundly influence digestion and calorie burning. And it offers practical and results-oriented strategies for the most commonly seen eating challenges and health issues of our times
What are coaching sessions like?
It all starts with an initial in-depth strategy session that lasts 90 minutes. In this initial session, I will ask you a lot of questions. Come ready to talk! We'll talk about work, family, money, spirituality, health, exercise & physicality, food & nutrition, and more. What's working for you. What isn't. You talk, and I listen with presence, empathy, compassion, and non-judgment to provide a safe and healing environment, allowing for profound transformation. You'll have homework after every session. Sometimes the homework is introspective in nature (e.g. journaling ) and sometimes it will include lifestyle changes. We'll go as fast or as slow as you need to go. It's a coaching relationship, so the assumption is that the answers lie within you; I'm just here to help you uncover them. After our initial session, our sessions together will run 30-60 minutes.
