Emotional Eating

Mindfulness and body-centered psychotherapy can be a tremendously helpful approach to healing from dysfunctional eating patterns. Mindfulness is the ability to pay attention to the present moment without judgements. By practicing mindfulness you are able to become more aware of your inner struggles and less reactive. This can help to improve your relationship with yourself and others.

Participation in therapy can help you:

-Increase your self-awareness

-Identify triggers for your eating habits

-Identify, label, and respond to your emotions rather than react; learn how to replace impulse with reflection

-Identify and release negative thoughts about yourself, body, food, and eating

-Develop a healthy relationship with yourself, body, food, and eating

-Experience pleasure in physical activity

-Identify and work through barriers by learning how to consistently soothe and nourish yourself
