We eat to numb out when the feelings seem overwhelming. Or to soothe uncomfortable feelings like anger, hurt, fear, overwhelm, shame and vulnerability.
We eat: to punish ourselves; out of boredom; when we're happy and excited...
Or to reward ourselves for getting through a tough day.
Sometimes, we just eat - even if we can’t identify a reason why (and we know it’s not hunger).
Food can play the role of the trusted friend who is always there and never lets us down. Some say food also plays the role of the abuser, the tormentor.
You can eat on your own terms.
You can eat whatever you want without waking up knee-deep in Nutella.
You can hear the wise messages your emotions have for you WITHOUT needing to drown them out.
You can survive the feelings without forcing yourself.
Watch the replay of this masterclass to explore all of this and more.
We will unpack emotional eating from different angles and you will learn how to revolutionise your relationship with food, so you’re eating on your own terms more of the time (rather than as an automatic response to emotions) and meeting your needs in more appropriate ways.

“Working with Vania has helped me make the shift from black and white perfectionistic thinking that was keeping me stuck in the dieting mindset, to living a life where thoughts of what I should or should not be eating hardly ever enter my head.”
