Emotional and Psychological Weight Loss
Saturday 13th October 2018
10am – 4.30pm
What will be covered:
- The blocks to weight loss: Why even though you really want to lose weight, it just doesn’t seem to happen.
- Why will-power alone won’t keep you on track, and what will make the difference.
- What emotional eating really is and how to use your emotions to create change.
- How you can become your own worst enemy and fight against yourself, and what to do about it.
- How to harness your psychology and emotions to the body you desire.
This course will combine psycho-education to give you insights and answers to the questions “Why can’t I stick to a diet?” and “Why is it so common to put the weight back on once I have lost it”.
Most importantly we will include mind/brain strategies and psychological change techniques, to help you with emotional focusing methods that go beyond the traditional unhelpful ‘eat less and exercise more’ mantras, and take you into a more permanent life-style change.
