Written by Dr. Esme Banting (Clinical Psychologist) and Heather Pursey (Chartered Physiotherapist) who specialise in supporting people find a healthy relationship with food, eating and their bodies - this is a course you will not want to miss!
The course starts by exploring what emotional eating actually is and take time to reflect on what your unique patterns of emotional eating looks like so you can get the maximum benefit from the rest of the course. Don’t worry – we give you the tools, techniques and worksheets you will need to do this if you get stuck!
Developing an understanding of WHY we as humans do what we do is an essential step in overcoming any patterns of behaviour we want to change.
There are LOTS of reasons why we emotionally eat and we have divided these up into three main areas to explore in detail:
Once we have the facts, our attention turns to how patterns of emotional eating are maintained through an emotional eating cycle. When we see this cycle more clearly we discuss ways you can disrupt the cycle and find other ways to respond to emotions without food.
To do this we need to re-frame emotional eating as our bodies way of communicating an important message. The longer we ignore the message, the longer the emotional eating will continue! We offer you tools to identify emotions you are feeling in the moment and offer suggestions about the hidden messages emotional eating might be trying to give.
Time is taken to help you tell the difference between physical and emotional hunger and empower you to eat in line with your bodies cues.
Finally, in the last section of the course, we explore a range of ways to cope with emotions WITHOUT using food and discuss ways to take care of your health and wellbeing in ways that really work for you.
