What made you want to become an Eating Psychology Coach?
I’ve had a long history of weight issues and I knowingly put on weight as protection after an unwanted sexual advance. I believe greatly that there is so much more to weight and health issues than what is on the surface. When I came across the program I knew I had to take the course.
What do you love about being an Eating Psychology Coach?
What I love is my client’s story and helping them understand how that story can impact their lives. I enjoy helping them connect the dots and then help them work through the issue.
What does your practice look like?
My practice is mainly one on one in person and, at times, if the client is busy the sessions are over the phone in the evenings. I have many ideas for programs and will develop them as time permits. One program I am working on is an embodied movement class and the results from my test program are very encouraging.
How did your education at the Institute prepare you to work successfully with clients?
I believe that the Institute of the Psychology of Eating gives you every chance to become a wonderful and successful coach.
What was your favorite aspect of the Training?
I enjoyed ALL of the Training. If I had to choose I would say the videos, the private Facebook group where you can celebrate your success and share your story, and the peer coaching.
How has being an Eating Psychology Coach impacted your professional life/financial well-being?
I am a recent graduate so I can’t say it has increased my finance as of right now as I am building my practice and it takes time.
How has being an Eating Psychology Coach impacted you personally?
When you start on the journey of becoming a Psychology of Eating coach you have no idea what may be revealed about yourself. I have claimed aspects of myself I have denied for 40 years and so much more. The course can be very empowering.
What do you see for yourself in your future as an Eating Psychology Coach – where is your work evolving towards?
Many of my clients have intimacy issues. I see adding more training on intimacy and in the future leading weekend and week long retreats.
Why Would You Recommend the Training to Others?
I would recommend the Training if for no other reason than the personal growth and empowerment that comes with working your way through the curriculum.
Anything else you’d like to share?
I believe wholeheartedly in the Institutes of the Psychology of Eating’s approach that weight loss is so much more than calories in and calories out. That energy, personal relationship, and more have a huge impact on our metabolism. That is what pulled me toward the Training.
