Weight loss counselling provides you with a space where you can talk about your struggle with weight and size.

We will explore your relationship with food and weight from childhood to present, and the influence that significant others and important events in your life have had on how you use food. We will look at emotional needs, which might not be satisfied and how that could lead to emotional hunger, making you turn to food when you might not be hungry or making you overeat to numb the feelings. We will work on making you feel better about yourself, explore changes and improvements in other aspects of your life that make you unhappy and find ways that satisfy your emotional needs without having to resort to food. We will look at your expectations around weigh loss and set a realistic plan that fits your lifestyle.

I will use practical solutions, tips and interventions to support you in changing how you eat. I will work with you on breaking habits, laying down new healthy eating ones,  and helping you deal with cravings. I will listen to your feelings and worries and support you when you feel stuck, demotivated, pressured and blaming yourself for lack of will power.

I cannot make promises about how much weight you would lose and I am not going to provide you with a diet plan. I will provide advice on healthy eating which if followed , along with some daily exercise would result in weight loss. My aim is to support you in creating a healthy relationship with food, where the food serves only the purpose of providing you with nutrition and energy.
