A Client says....
 I have really enjoyed my sessions with Yvonne. She walked with me on my journey (and still is) and has significantly helped me to understand why I overeat (amongst other issues). She quickly picked up on the fact that I am a visual person and was happy to incorporate this into our sessions. The light bulb moments came within the first few sessions and I have been truly amazed at how we have transformed my thinking, from guilt and punishment - to that of understanding and kindness. I would highly recommend Yvonne to anyone wishing to change stubborn 'core beliefs' that simply aren't true!

Eating  and Obesity Therapy

 

Do you feel you have issues with food

  • Do you comfort eat?
  • Binge on food?
  • Are you constantly dieting only to put the weight back on?
  • Do you have body image problems?  
  • Low self esteem?
  • Are you overweight and worried about your health?
  • Maybe you have more extreme behaviour around and with food that is worrying you and affecting you physically?
  • Do you think you may have Bulimia, Anorexia Nervosa or Binge Eating Disorder?
  • Do you feel out of control?  

We can use food to emotionally comfort us. We may reach for food when we are upset and sometimes it can lead to extreme behaviour which is detrimental to our health, relationships, lifestyle and happiness.
You may have deeper issues from the past that are affecting you now and exploring them can be a positive, life changing experience and help to explain why you eat in a certain way.
Eating large amounts of food secretly, late at night or bingeing on sweet things can affect our metabolism, our blood sugar and serotonin levels. This can lead to diabetes and depression.
I will give you information about how our body reacts to dieting, fat, overeating and poor nutrition.
We will look at ways to gently move forward and make small changes which will aim to restore a balance and a more contented way of eating.  

Eating TherapyMaybe exercise is an issue for you. Too little or too much can be bad for our health. You might need some practical support, guidance and information about staying fit and eating healthily.   I provide a space to explore these issues confidentially and in a non-judgemental way using the latest research from the National Weight Control Registry in the USA, approved, professional and recognised techniques and the NICE Guidelines to enable you to explore emotional issues, look at patterns, attitudes and beliefs and investigate health and nutritional concerns.
There is no calorie counting, dieting, scales or target weights, just realistic and manageable goals.  

A Free Assessment session is available to establish your concerns and look at how this type of therapy may be useful to you.
