Emotional Eating and Binge Eating are almost impossible to tackle with Willpower alone. Habits, or auto-pilot, are the biggest block to change, and Emotional Eating IS a habit. And when you repeatedly eat bad food for comfort, instead of comforting you it causes you to feel even worse. And if you break one of your food rules once, the 'all or nothing' thinking kicks in and that is it for that day, or even that week! Am I right?
When you are stuck in this cycle, you have almost zero chance to break out of it with Willpower alone. Why not?
Well, once your brain 'records' a habit loop of behaviour, it files it away under 'Autopilot', and we find it VERY difficult to change as a result - your brain is way ahead of you! That's why so many clients tell me about the 'out of body' experience of emotional eating and bingeing - does this resonate with you? That feeling of literally being out of control, even though you desperately want to stop?
Mindfulness for Ending Emotional Eating and Binge Eating Workshop
My combination of CBT, Neuroscience and Mindfulness will teach you how to step OUT of auto-pilot, allowing you to make different choices. You will also learn new strategies to help reduce bingeing and emotional eating that you can begin to use immediately.
We will be doing mindfulness and other experiential exercises throughout the day too. You will leave feeling far more empowered and able to truly tackle and change your unhelpful thoughts, feelings and behaviours around food.
Previous Testimonials from Mindfulness for Emotional Eating Workshop:
Q: Which elements of the workshop did you find most useful?
A: The Habit Interruption “awareness” was great. Really practical and useful.
A: It was really useful to be in a group, feel I’m not alone and have shared testimonials of people going through the same issue as me. The exercises and techniques were great, the material very useful and the atmosphere was supportive.”
A: The Loving Kindness meditation, the self-love and forgiveness – as a reminder to be kinder to myself, to be my own best friend.”
“This was a really great experience for me. I now feel that I understand why I eat emotionally, but also what I can do to take back ownership, and how to change habits for the good. The mindfulness experiences were great too.”
“Thank you for a wonderful day with loads of practical advice and meditations. I feel lighter, stronger and more empowered now.”
“I found understanding the brain so helpful i.e. Trigger, Craving etc. It was like Emma could look into my mind. I would highly recommend this workshop. I’ll be taking lots of skills away with me. Thanks so much Emma.”
