What made you want to become an Eating Psychology Coach?
I was a holistic nutritionist who kept attracting people who had issues that were deeper than food, which manifested as a troubled relationship with eating. I noticed that you can tell people what to eat, and how to deal with stress, but that it has nothing to do with whether they will follow through. I thought I was ineffective, but really I just didn’t have the training, knowledge, wisdom, and tools to help facilitate real and lasting change between women and food. As soon as I learned about The Institute for the Psychology of Eating, I immediately knew it was the missing link. That’s why I decided to become a Certified Eating Psychology Coach.
What do you love about being an Eating Psychology Coach?
I love being able to help women in the same way that I needed help, but didn’t know where to find it at the time. I’m passionate about being able to assist others to free up all the wasted energy, time, and emotion consumed by worrying about food. I’ve found that doing so, they can be better friends, lovers, partners, mothers, and the change makers this world so desperately needs! I sincerely love food and feel nourished by it on both a practical and soul level. Everyone deserves to be in this peaceful and loving relationship. I’m happy that I can help get them there.
What does your practice look like?
My practice is mobile, so I have the ability to help anyone who really needs and wants help, regardless of geographical location. I specialize in compulsive overeating. My main offering is a 90 day, one-on-one coaching program called From Punishment to Nourishment.
How did your education at the Institute prepare you to work successfully with clients?
I learned to understand where issues with food originate and stem from, on a nutritional, behavioral, emotional, and spiritual level. I believe that awareness cures — knowing what’s causing the problem is the most effective way to heal. I benefited most from the tools, methods, and approaches that the Institute for the Psychology of Eating provided. They included how to explore, unwind, and navigate all kinds of eating issues. I feel prepared and confident to work with any type of client I encounter.
What was your favorite aspect of the Training?
The downloadable audios were my favorite part, they were so convenient! I felt like I could truly listen and absorb the material. I must be an auditory learner! Because we are all busy people, it helped that I could listen while doing mundane tasks that didn’t need much of my focus. My favorite was to go for a walk or clean the house while listening (my house was pretty spotless for that 9 months)! I also really enjoyed the sense of community, support, friendship, wisdom, and everyone’s willingness to be emotionally vulnerable in the the student Facebook group.
How has being an Eating Psychology Coach impacted your professional life/financial well-being?
I now have the platform to build an effective business off of. I feel confident in it — like I’m good at it, and that it’s something that so many women need. It has been wonderful to run a program for 90 days for my clients, where you have their full commitment, both financially and personally. There is a great need in this area, and women are willing to pay you what you are worth for something they truly need. With this Training, you worth increases exponentially. At the current moment, as I build my business, the programs I’ve implemented are a steady part-time income for me.
How has being an Eating Psychology Coach impacted you personally?
The real question is, how has being an Eating Psychology Coach NOT affected my life? I have too many positive experiences to name them all here. Most especially, I feel more purpose, and a greater deal of joy and energy since going through the Training. I also have experienced a great deal of personal growth through overcoming my fear of starting a business and putting myself out there. It feels good to live outside your comfort zone. Personally, I can say I have nearly healed my relationship with food, and am the healthiest I have ever been. I deal with stress differently now, and have an incredible amount of self-love. I also feel more responsibility to make a change in the world and I feel accountable to all the struggling souls.
What do you see for yourself in your future as an Eating Psychology Coach – where is your work evolving towards?
I see myself doing this work full-time as an expert and aspire to be a sought after resource in the area of eating compulsions. I would love to hold workshops which people travel to come to, as well as online virtual group programs. My goal is to help 100,000 women to free themselves from punishment with food, whether it’s through my blog, coaching, speaking, or indirect word of mouth.
Why would you recommend the Training to others?
I’d recommend this Training because of its amazing VALUE. I felt there was an over delivery of content and information, and the tools taught were extremely effective. It will help you feel powerful, confident, and relaxed about what you have to offer. Now is the time to get in on this wave of the future! We might seem like pioneers right now, but this work will be mainstream very soon. The Institute has an amazing customer service team, and the Institute’s teachers are incredibly warm and with abounding integrity.
Anything else you’d like to share?
Yes — this is about food, but really you are in the business of changing people’s lives. How you do food is how you do everything. To change relationship with food, you must change your life, self and beliefs. The work is so multidimensional, and really you are just helping each client be the best possible version of themselves. This is so profound, because you are making the world a happier place, one person at a time and significantly improving yourself in the process.
