Event description
A weight management support group based on the concepts and principles of mindful eating. 90 minute session.

About this Event

~ Are you struggling to control your eating and your weight?

~ Do you want to develop a healthier relationship with food?

~ Do you need some support to set up and maintain long-term healthy eating habits?

~ Would you like to talk about your eating to others and hear about other people's struggles with food, to know you're not alone and to feel supported?

~ Perhaps you’ve had enough of diets, and you need a fresh approach to help you feel more in charge of your eating.

This is an informal, small, friendly group for anyone interested in discussing diet, nutrition, mindful eating, eating habits and weight management, and to come along and learn some really useful information and tips about the psychology of eating. It’s also an opportunity to give and receive moral support through sharing tips, ideas, information, stories, challenges and successes in relation to eating and weight management. Each session focuses on a particular relevant topic, with the flexibility to ‘go with the flow’.

The primary focus of the group is to provide an opportunity for in-depth discussion- it is not primarily a 'weigh-in' like traditional weight loss groups. Some people use a weighing scales to monitor weight loss progress and others prefer not to; therefore, for those trying to lose weight, there is an entirely optional weigh-in (in a separate room) for those who would like to be weighed and have their weight loss progress logged. The main aim of the session is to help people to understand and tackle their underlying eating habits and motivations to eat, which might be getting in the way of successful long-term weight management. In order to make positive changes, having a regular opportunity to not only gain some knowledge but also do a bit of self-exploration can be a great help, and give you the ‘light bulb’ moment you might need. Just talking things through can really help, and give you some insight.

The sessions offer you a chance to stop and think about what, why and how much you eat. The aim is to encourage you to make your primary goal to focus on your actual eating behaviour and the reasons behind it, and then weight loss can be a positive by-product, rather than simply focusing on a weight loss target without tackling underlying problematic eating habits first- the factors that can contribute to weight gain, problems losing weight and keeping the weight off long-term.

This group is a great place to simply chat and share things. No obligation whatsoever to attend every session. Come and give it a go! Why not bring a friend? This is a 90 minute session.

Recent comments from attendees:-

"For anyone not sure I would totally recommend these support groups. Emma is full of knowledge and so supportive and I always leave feeling inspired. It is lovely to talk to others in the same boat and support each other too. Could not praise these meetings enough if I tried!".

"These meetings are amazing! I highly recommend them. Went this week and I felt uplifted and motivated again after feeling down about the way I have been eating recently. Emma is so supportive and so helpful and just truly inspiring".

I run my own business, 'Mindful Eating', and as well as offering one-to-one dietary advice and eating behaviour counselling, I've been giving popular talks and running groups for more than a decade. Using my extensive experience of helping clients and my in-depth knowledge of nutrition and the psychology of eating, I help to facilitate each session with a particular relevant topic, but it’s your session ultimately, with a bit of structure if needed to help you along.

Come and get inspired!

Please note:-
