Our team has worked with literally hundreds (probably thousands!) of people, just like you. People who, for decades, have turned to food as an automatic response to difficult emotions, issues, relationships and feelings about yourself that are overwhelming and can feel as if you have no other way to effectively steer your way through.
Learning how to address and work through your normal feelings and emotions, and looking at the factors that have led you to rely solely on food as a means to emotionally cope, is such an integral part of successfully ending your excessive use of food as a primary coping mechanism.
While this may sound super-scary, it doesn’t have to be! Many times, people are simply not taught basic ways of responding to their feelings and emotions in a positive manner early in life and, as you get older, you are still at a loss as to how to effectively connect with, respond to, and support yourself through normal, spontaneous feelings associated with “life.”
Help is on the way! You CAN end Compulsive Overeating
An integral part of our approach is to gently teach you how to maneuver through the feelings aspect of life, without the need to turn to food to cope. This is a gradual process and involves progressive skill building in learning what your emotions are and how best to support yourself, your feelings, and your needs in a manner that brings true comfort, happiness, and fulfillment – without the use of food.
Depending on your personal story, this emotional work may take a few different forms. We are here to help guide you as to which manner makes most sense for you, and we offer several different ways to do your “emotional work” depending on your needs.
The important thing to know is that you are not alone. You are not supposed to know how to do all of this right now on your own. And, we are here to help you in a compassionate, non-judgmental, and effective way!
