SIGNATURE WORKSHOP ON OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD

Nutrition and Eating Psychology

  • ​We look at some of the myths on nutrition and explore why there is so much conflicting nutrition information out there, helping you to make sense of the conflicting advice on nutrition; 

  • We cover what components make up a nutritious diet - also exploring how our genetic make-up and the state of our micro-biome plays a role in what diet is best for our unique body; 

  • We cover why, despite knowing what food is healthy, most people are unable to make the dietary choices that they know are best for their health and help you to understand why you may be eating foods that you don't really want to be eating; 

  • We cover the practical steps that you can take to make sustainable changes to their lifestyles and food-related behaviours - quick-fixes and diets rarely work long-term and you will learn exactly what to do to build habits that will last a lifetime; 

  • We explore the connection between food, mood and our thinking patterns and cover psychological tools that can be used to change your individual’s diet; and

  • We look at why stress, boredom, sadness and low mood can often lead you to eat and look at how you can develop new coping mechanisms.

Resilience Building 

  • We explore practical tools that you can use to change the way you think; to break away from unhelpful habits; and to help you to feel better day in and day out;

  • You will learn tools that you can use to have the courage to finally pursue your dreams, to boost your confidence and self-esteem and to improve your performance and productivity;

  • We will cover techniques from CBT, mindfulness, NLP as well as several other psychological disciplines. that will enable you to bounce back from stressors and set-backs more effectively;

  • We look at how resilience building can boost both mental and physical health and prevent illness;

  • We cover how to achieve behaviour change: most people know that they need to eat better and sleep more - we explore how you can actually bring about changes to your lifestyle; and

  • We suggest how best to manage stressors and cover practical tools that you can use to feel more in control and better able to cope.

The Science of Sleep

  • We cover why everyone needs sleep and the science demonstrating the benefits of sleep both for our mental and physical health;

  • We explore practical tools that you can use to optimise your sleep quality, drawing on the scientifically-validated techniques from CBT-I;

  • We look at what may be getting in the way of you getting a good night’s sleep; and

  • We make the connection between sleep quality, nutrition, stress, mental health and overall life-quality helping you to understand how you can improve your sleep to change your diet, lower your stress levels and ensure that you are happier day-to-day.

Beat Binge Eating

  • We cover what typically causes binge eating and bulimia and help you to understand what is happening in your brain when you binge eat;

  • We equip you with practical tools that you can use to stop binge eating for good;

  • We explore what factors may get in the way of your recovery and cover how you can manage these;

  • We help you to develop a new relationship with food that means you can feel free around food and start to find pleasure in food again too; and
