The field of Eating Psychology delves deeper into our emotional relationship with food and considers challenges here to be opportunities for personal growth and transformation. Often our issues with food and body are connected to other areas in life, such as relationships, family, work, money, intimacy, or issues in our past that haven’t quite been resolved or “digested.” We all have unique lessons to learn about ourselves, our life purpose, our search for meaning and fulfilment, and examining our relationship with food can often be a great starting point for doing just that. Eating Psychology acknowledges that while what you eat and how you move are incredibly important, there’s a lot more to achieving a healthy body and mind. Book your first session here to start exploring the fascinating psychology behind your eating.
MIND BODY NUTRITION
Mind Body Nutrition explores the psychophysiology of how thoughts, feelings, and beliefs impact weight and health. It focuses on the powerful connections between brain, body, and behaviour. Who we are and how we eat literally and scientifically influences the way we metabolise a meal. Mind Body Nutrition considers the effects of stress, relaxation, meal timing, awareness, our personal story—and so much more—on our ability to digest and absorb nutrients. Understanding these mind-body connections and appreciating how emotions influence our biology, can help us better access the optimal state for digestion and assimilation. If you’re ready to explore how your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs are impacting your health and your metabolism, schedule your first session now.
You were born with the instinct to eat intuitively, but this internal guidance slowly but surely dissipates for many, as external voices become louder and more powerful. Much suffering and disordered eating is a result of this disconnect from our natural emotional and physical hunger. Pioneered by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch in their bestselling book by the same name, Intuitive Eating rejects diet culture and empowers us to trust our hunger and satisfaction cues. As a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, I can help you cultivate a healthy relationship with food, mind, and body. As an Intuitive Eater, you will learn to challenge your “food rules”, honour your appetite, respect your body, and discover true nourishment.
