WHAT WE DO
The Food Therapy Clinic combines interventions from psychology and nutrition to treat issues around food. The treatment of emotional eating, IBS, obesity, eating-disorders and other food-related issues require both an understanding of nutrition and an understanding of the psychological factors driving the conditions.
. We combine psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, nutrition advice, mindfulness techniques and neurolinguistic-programming to give you a unique treatment which can resolve your issues around food for good. We offer one-on-one sessions (in the clinic and over Skype/Facetime) and online training courses.
We work with your dietary preferences and can help you to rebuild your relationship with food working together with you and what you know is best for your body. We help to set you free from obsessive thoughts about food and your body so that maintaining good health is no longer a constant battle and struggle.
Most people know what they should be eating.
Most people know what foods are healthy and what foods are bad for their bodies and most people know just how much they should be eating - and yet, despite this knowledge, very few people actually eat the foods that would enable them to feel great and look their best.
Our food choices are very heavily influenced by our mental and emotional well-being. Very often eating disorders are born out of a need for control. Very often weight gain comes when an individual tries to find comfort in food or uses food to deal with trauma or stressful situations. We do not just look at food as nourishment - food very often means a whole lot more. This is why, in order to change the way we eat, we have to address the psychological drivers for our food choices.
Why are diets or meal plans unsustainable?
Diets or meal plans may assist an individual to lose weight or to regulate their eating patterns in the short-term but unless that individual also addresses the psychological drivers for their food choices, they will just return to their bad habits as soon as the diet is over. We all have certain food-related habits that a diet or meal plan alone cannot change. To change these habits requires an understanding of why and when the habit came into existence and how it can be altered for good. At the clinic we help you to understand why you have developed your food-related habits and to change these so that you can lead a healthy and happy life, without having to worry about making bad food choices. Food is also often used as a coping mechanism and we can help you to manage the things that you are using food to cope with as well as to develop new ways of coping.

REBUILDING YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD
Most therapists do not understand nutrition and most nutritionists do not understand psychology but at The Food Therapy Clinic we understand both and so can successfully help you to resolve your issues around food for the long-term.
The Food Therapy Clinic uses a range of techniques to help you to make permanent changes
Hypnotherapy is a tool which enables individuals to alter subconscious behaviours.
Anyone that drives or dances will know that they do not perform these actions through conscious thinking - these activities are often performed in auto-pilot mode, once an individual has had enough practice. Much in the same way a lot of people’s eating habits are just behaviours they perform in auto-pilot mode. Reaching for biscuits when you are stressed or ice-cream when you are sad, is just an automatic subconscious response. Hypnotherapy can be used to change these subconscious behaviours so that you can regain control over your decisions around food.
Psychotherapy is an exploratory form of talking therapy which enables individuals to investigate the drivers behind their choices.
Psychotherapy encompasses a range of different therapies including cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic therapy and humanistic therapy. In different ways, all of these forms of therapy, can be used to help you to determine why you are making certain food choices. You can uncover exactly what is triggering your disordered eating and then work to alter your responses to these triggers. Psychotherapy is also used to resolve any stress/anxiety/depression that may be underlying your eating condition.
There is so much contradictory nutritional information publicly available that it can be difficult to know exactly what nutritional changes would really benefit your health.
In a sector dominated by fads and quick fixes, it can be tempting to follow the latest “diet plan” or food craze. However these quick fixes rarely provide a long-term solution. The Food Therapy Clinic takes a science based approach to nutrition. Our recommendations are based on research and evidence, ensuring that you can make permanent changes to your eating habits and reach your health and weight goals safely.
So often we eat in a rush, at our desks, on the train or in front of the television, that we do not even notice just how much we are eating.
In a society that has too much to do, too many deadlines to meet and no time to just sit and enjoy food - it is no wonder that so many people have disordered eating. The Food Therapy Clinic uses techniques derived from meditation and mindfulness practices to help you to become more aware of what and how much you are eating. When you are able to respond to your body’s natural cues and needs, you will find that disordered eating is no longer an issue.
