We train health professionals and license/franchise our specialist program in emotional eating & binge eating - delivered by trained Health and Nutrition Coaches.
Up to 30% of adults seeking weight loss support meet the criteria for binge eating disorder, which is not about food, but feelings, and often linked to past trauma.

Health professionals generally are not aware of binge eating disorder or the specialist support these clients need. This contributes significantly to drop out and regression in clients - particularly those who have a pattern of yo-yo dieting. The problem is not lack of willpower or inability to stick to a program, it is their underlying emotional and psychological barriers - this is binge eating disorder.

Our program, Eating Freely, is a structured, time limited program built on four evidence-based pillars of support - CBT, a specific nutritional rehabilitation protocol, neuroscience and mindful self-compassion. It can be offered to clients individually or as a group program, and can be offered an an (up to) 6 month program.

We believe every gym and fitness facility should a) provide training to trainers in how to screen for underlying issues and b)have a professionally trained Health and Nutrition Coach available to their clients to provide the more specific supports and resources clients need. We know how many clients of ours include "various gyms / a personal trainer" in their response to the question "Have you sought help for this problem before?" The gym/personal trainer is an attempt to manage the weight gain - a symptom or result of ongoing binge eating disorder, but NOT the primary problem. Supporting clients holistically is the future - we all know by now that calorie controlled diets do not work, and straightforward behavior change plans often do not stick either, because humans are complex!

Feel free to connect with me and explore the opportunity of becoming an Eating Freely Licensee.
