We all have places in our life where we are blocked. Using Emotional Freedom Technique, I will help you identify those blocks and overcome them. Many of us have buried our past traumas, unmet needs, and suppressed emotions under a painful struggle with weight loss and emotional eating. When we use our relationship with food as the doorway to access these past emotional traumas and heal them, self-sabotage and unhealthy eating patterns can finally fall away. To heal the part of you that feels worthless, unloved, and abandoned, we need to acknowledge and release the rage, the fear, and the rejection that's been quietly residing inside you. As you let go of these negative core beliefs that don't serve you, you'll feel lighter in mind, body, and spirit, and you'll treat yourself in a more positive and loving way.
As we clear your emotional blocks, your relationship with food will naturally improve. If you've been dieting for most of your life, you've likely sent the message to your body that you don't trust it anymore. You may have overfed your body when it was full and starved it when it was hungry. Listening to your body and nourishing it intuitively will occur naturally as you let go of past compulsions. Obsessing over calories, dieting, exercising, the scale or eating the "right" foods will be a thing of the past. You will no longer feel the need to clean your plate, to label foods as "good" or "bad," to hide when and what you eat, or to feel guilty or ashamed for experiencing pleasure while eating. We'll get rid of your critical inner voice and reprogram your mind to love, accept, and honor your physical body, your mental well-being, and the path you're on right now.
Many of us get stuck before we've manifested our dreams and we don't know why. We start blaming ourselves, using food to self-soothe, and then continue to feel stuck and angry at ourselves as we repeat the cycle. We even get angry at ourselves for getting angry. The good news is that your struggles with cravings and emotional eating are valuable clues to the feelings and beliefs that are weighing you down. Unprocessed events from the past that have left you feeling devalued and dismissed can cause pervasive feelings of worthlessness and rage. As we validate these unacknowledged emotions and reclaim your power, we will be reprogramming your personal belief system to accept a new way of being that is aligned with your life goals. Change begins with acceptance, so we'll start with a calm acknowledgement of where you are in life right now, in this moment.
Most of us crave specific foods that are attached to a fond memory of a loved one or a happy time in our lives. Once we take the feelings out of the foods you crave, you'll lose the compulsion to eat them to excess.
If eating when you're not hungry has become your main coping strategy, we'll get curious about your emotions and welcome them as guides on your path to acceptance and emotional freedom.
Do you feel like you need to watch TV, read, or look at your phone while eating alone? We can uncover any beliefs you have about what it means to eat alone or any resistance you might have to eating slowly and mindfully.
If you often find yourself eating or thinking about food when you feel overwhelmed or frustrated, you might be covering up a deep well of anger. Poor boundaries in the past or present can turn into rage if your feelings of powerless are left unprocessed. Allow yourself the opportunity to accept that it's natural to feel anger, and let yourself release it in a way that is healthy and healing.
I can help you end your self-oppression, your worship of thinness, and your battle with the scale. It's time to stop the cycle of restrictive dieting, bingeing, and hating yourself. You may have stopped trusting your body a long time ago, but you can learn to listen to it again, embrace intuitive eating, and give your body what it needs. I can help you start loving your body right now, just as it is.
Imagine you suddenly had your ideal body. Would friends, family, co-workers, or your significant other be angry or jealous? Would you expect more of yourself and have to change other parts of your life? If having your ideal body would sabotage your relationships or your comfort zone, it makes sense that you would subconsciously sabotage your efforts to achieve your goals.
After your free consultation, we will spend an entire hour working on up to three other craving foods so you can disconnect yourself from the emotions that your mind has attached to the food.
Your mind has very good reasons for keeping the weight you don't want on your body. We'll solve the mystery of secondary gain, heal past traumas, and welcome unacknowledged emotions.
We can get deeper into the emotions behind the food and discover the hidden fears that contribute to your patterns of emotional eating. We'll delve into anger and sadness and heal them at their origins so you can finally release the emotions you've been suppressing.
If you have poor boundaries with others or difficulty even making boundaries in the first place, those feelings of powerlessness can turn into rage. Process the anger and reclaim your power so you can move forward in life.
Self-worth and validation can be hard to come by if you were raised in an environment of emotional abuse, neglect, or indifference. If you lacked healthy encouragement and accountability from your parents, you might be using anger and fear to motivate yourself toward your goals and then sabotaging whatever progress you do make. We can re-train your harsh inner critic to be a patient and nurturing guide who supports your goals and respects your individual journey.
