Rebuild Your Relationship with Food
Rebuild your relationship with food and make permanent changes to your diet and lifestyle with the unique FTCM® treatment combining psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, behaviour change techniques and nutrition advice.
Whether you would like to stop emotional eating, are struggling to lose weight, just want to lead a healthier lifestyle or are dealing with an eating disorder – these combination of techniques can help you to get to the root cause of your issues around food and help you to make lasting changes.
Nobody should have to worry about food or their relationship with food
One-one-one sessions are available in the clinic and online as video sessions via Zoom. Instead of having to see a separate nutritionist, psychotherapist, behaviour change specialist, hypnotherapist, sleep specialist, NLP coach and mindfulness trainer...you can get all of these services in the one session with FTCM®, our unique inter-disciplinary approach. Depending on your budget, the recommended treatment course is either:
Starter Package: Five sessions, one 90-minute session, followed-up with four 60-minute sessions, spaced 2-3 weeks apart;
In-Depth Package: Ten sessions, one 90-minute session, followed-up with nine 60-minute sessions, weekly or fornightly; or
Total Transformation Package: Fifteen sessions, one 90-minute session, followed-up with fourteen 60-minute sessions, weekly or fornightly.
Most clients are able to resolve their issues around food with one of these treatment plans. We only work with a select number of clients at any one time in order to give each client the care, attention and support that they deserve on their journey to great health. This is a very personalised treatment and we will support you in between sessions in making changes to your diet and lifestyle too. You will have recordings to listen to and workbooks to complete between sessions, we also check in with you regularly to support you in building new habits.
Welcome - I am Uxshely, I founded The Food Therapy Clinic and the approach that we use at the clinic is different to any other hypnotherapist/ psychotherapist/ nutritionist out there because we won’t just recommend that you:
eat less and exercise more if you want to lose weight - we know that you already know that you need to eat less and exercise more, in fact, our approach is one which encourages you to enjoy food and to make changes to your lifestyle which won’t leave you feeling miserable and deprived
just try to distract yourself if you feel the urge to binge-eat or over-eat
suddenly cut out lots of food groups if you want to get healthy - we understand that this approach is only ever effective short-term and will not help you to achieve your health goals over the long-term
just eat more if you are under-eating or struggling with food aversions.
We understand that food issues are more complex than this and that lasting change requires building sustainable habits. Our goal is to equip you with tools that will enable you to change the way you eat and your relationship with food over the long-term.
We want to help you to make permanent changes and the only way to permanently change how you eat is to look at WHY you eat the way you do
At The Food Therapy Clinic each of our therapists has an in depth understanding of what drives people to have disordered eating habits and we understand both the psychology of these patterns as well as which nutritional changes are optimum for achieving lasting results. Most therapists don’t understand nutrition and most nutritionists don’t understand psychology - but we can bring you the best information and tools from a range of different disciplines that you won’t find elsewhere.
How much money have you wasted on diets, meal plans, retreats or juice plans? How much time and mental energy have you used up worrying about food, socialising around food, calories or your weight?... All of which have not resolved your issues around food long-term? Imagine waking up knowing that you never have to worry about dieting, binge-eating, erratic eating patterns, feeling anxious about certain foods or making unhelpful food choices ever again - that you can just be free to enjoy a variety of nutritious, delicious food that is good for your body. How much more free time would you have:
- now that you do not need to worry about which diet you are going to start “tomorrow”;
- now that you don’t need to obsess over starving yourself, just to binge eat at the end of the day;
- now that you naturally want to make healthy choices;
- now that you don't feel anxious around certain foods or worry about meals out;
- now that you are well nourished and full of energy instead of starving and tired;
- now that you don’t get that horrible bloating and upset stomach every time you eat; or
- now that you don't spend every day obsessing over food and your weight.
People’s issues with food come in all shapes and sizes. Yet there is one thing that these issues all have in common - there is some psychological pattern driving them - causing you to repeat the same cycle over and over again. We understand what drives these repetitive and destructive patterns - and can help you to reverse the unhealthy habits of a lifetime - for good.
REBUILDING YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD
Most therapists do not understand nutrition and most nutritionists do not understand psychology but we understand both and so can successfully help you to resolve your issues around food for the long-term.
FTCM® employs 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. We take 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. We use 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.
What we can help you with
We understand how challenging it can be to face issues around food and know that it will be important for you to find the right treatment for you. This is why we think that it is important that you are given the opportunity to speak to someone at the clinic before committing to any therapy packages or products. We offer a 20 minute free phone consultation to anyone that is thinking about booking in a session or signing up for an online programme.
We have been featured in a range of television shows and publications
