One-on-One Sessions

The Food Therapy Clinic uses a range of techniques to help you to make permanent changes

The Food Therapy Clinic’s approach 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

-that you just take peppermint capsules if you have IBS - we understand the complex range of physiological and psychological factors that cause this condition

- that you are force fed if you are an anorexic or orthorexic, we know what drives you to develop these conditions and know also how to set you free from their trap

- that you 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.

The recommended treatment course is one 90-minute session, followed-up with four 60-minute sessions, spaced 2-3 weeks apart.  Some clients prefer to have more support as they change their relationship with food and longer term (more regular) treatment is also an option, for this 12 weekly or fortnightly 60-minute sessions are recommended.

 

Sound nutrition advice

Psychotherapy and hypnotherapy

Mindfulness techniques

We have done years of research into what drives people to over-eat or adopt 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 bring you the best information from a range of different techniques that you won’t find elsewhere.

Our Goal

The Food Therapy Clinic wants 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

Imagine waking up knowing that you never have to worry about dieting, erratic eating patterns, IBS or making bad food choices ever again - that you can just be free to enjoy 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 get that horrible bloating and upset stomach every time you eat;

 

An interdisciplinary approach

Resolving the root cause

Providing a long-term solution

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.  The Food Therapy Clinic 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 at The Food Therapy Clinic we understand both and so can successfully help you to resolve your issues around food for the long-term.

Techniques

The Food Therapy Clinic uses a range of techniques to help you to make permanent changes

Hypnotherapy

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

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.

Nutrition

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.

Mindfulness

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.

About Us

Meet the founder of The Food Therapy Clinic

The Food Therapy Clinic was founded by registered nutritionist, psychotherapist, hypnotherapist and lawyer, Uxshely Carcamo.  Uxshely founded the clinic to enable her clients to get to the root cause of their issues around food.  

In a sector dominated by fads and quick fixes, Uxshely wanted to adopt a scientific approach to resolving food issues that would enable her clients to achieve permanent change. Uxshely also appreciated that the most effective long-term treatments for issues around food were holistic and involved optimsing sleeping habits and dietary choices as well as changing thinking patterns.

After graduating with a first from Oxford University and spending some time working as a corporate lawyer, Uxshely decided to re-train in a range of disciplines which would allow her to enhance the health of others both physically and mentally, including: psychotherapy, biomedicine, hypnotherapy, public health nutrition, meditation and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). Uxshely now combines several of these techniques and disciplines to help her clients to optimise their nutritional choices; deal with their eating disorders; break free of the vicious dieting cycle; and to feel great about themselves and their bodies.
