The method I practice is based on a number of  therapeutic approaches, including Mindfulness, Systemic Therapy, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis. 

At the heart of my therapy is an analysis and understanding of each individual situation: your personal history, perception of your own body and how you believe others see you. 

This understanding is then applied to an in-depth and rational analysis of the eating behaviour:

  • What do you eat, how much, at what time of the day, after which event, in what context?
  • How do you eat? Too fast, without fully appreciating or identifying what you consume?
  • How do you feel when you think about eating and when you are actually eating?
  • After eating, do you feel satisfied and content or do you feel guilty and stressed?
  • How does this affect the way you look at yourself?
  • How does this affect the way you feel others see you?

Together we analyse the often unconscious reasons why you carry excess weight. For example to:

  • Protect yourself from the desire of others.
  • Maintain a negative self image.
  • Manage your anxiety, soothe your emotions.
  • Being faithful to an intergenerational pattern.

Gaining awareness of these issues is crucial in order for you to finally get out of this toxic mode.
