Workshop Summary

 

Weighting Around

Weighting Around is a one day workshop that is ideal for men and women. It makes no promises, and is not about flat stomachs and bikinis. It is about recognising the ways that our beliefs and thoughts can get in our way and sabotage our efforts to make changes in our habits.

We all have an inner judge who demands that we eat, look, sound and behave a certain way and many come to therapy to help them comply with the demands of that judge. We manage for a short time and then with one setback, it all seems to fall apart. By looking at how and why we eat our food, some practical changes that can make a difference alongside exploring the psychological aspects that can affect our choices, the Weighting Around course explores a more sustainable way to make, and commit, to the changes you want.

If you answer ‘Yes’ to any of the following questions, you might just love the course...

  • Do you ever label yourself as “good” or “bad” based upon what you choose to eat?

  • Do you feel caught up in a cycle of deprivation and indulgence?

  • Do you ever notice that when you have lost weight, you don’t actually feel much different inside?

  • Do you ever notice that certain events, moods or even conversations affect what you choose to eat?

  • Do you ever feel you are eating healthily and yet nothing changes?
