American Psychological Association describes nutritional psychology as a multidisciplinary field that examines the role that nutrition (dietary patterns, nutrient consumption or lack of thereof, etc.) plays in the causes and treatment of mental health overall and mental health problems.
Sessions with me can be beneficial:
- If you can't stop obsessing about food
- If you fight your appetite
- If you turn to food every time you feel uncomfortable, sad or lonely
- If you lost weight and gained it back multiple times
- If you punish your body with forced exercise
- If you hate your body
- If you bombard yourself with negative thoughts
- If you postpone the happiness until you have ''perfect'' body
- If you feel like your experience with food and body is holding you back from fully participating in life
Mind Body Nutrition
Mind Body Nutrition is an exciting and timely new field that advances the practice of clinical nutrition by exploring the psychophysiology of how thoughts, feelings and beliefs impact nutritional metabolism and health. Originated by Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, it goes far beyond classical nutrition by focusing on the fascinating connections between brain, body, and behaviour. Simply put, what we eat is only half of the story of good nutrition. The other half is who we are as eaters. Mind Body Nutrition reveals how stress physiology, the relaxation response, breathing, awareness, pleasure, meal timing and much more profoundly influence digestion and calorie burning. And it offers practical and results-oriented strategies for the most commonly seen eating challenges and health issues of our times.
Dynamic Eating Psychology
Dynamic Eating Psychology is an important new field originated by Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating.
It’s a positive, empowering and transformational approach that’s designed for anyone who eats.
Each of us has a unique, fascinating, and ever changing relationship with food. Dynamic Eating Psychology affirms the primary importance of this relationship.
It sees our challenges with eating, weight and health not as an indication that we’re broken, but as a beautiful opportunity to grow and evolve. Previously, eating psychology has been limited to those with clinical eating disorders. Dynamic Eating Psychology though, is for everyone. It affirms that our relationship with food has important lessons to teach us if we choose to listen. And it recognizes that our challenges with eating, weight and health are intimately connected to other primary life dimensions – relationship, family, work, sexuality, our search for meaning and fulfilment, and so much more. Dynamic Eating Psychology is a powerful breakthrough approach.
