What made you want to become an Eating Psychology Coach?
The reason I wanted to become an Eating Psychology Coach was because I wanted to understand my clients better. I am a health supportive culinary chef and although, I offered them healthy food to eat, some struggled with compulsive and emotional eating. I thought learning these skills will not only help my clients, but help myself.
What do you love about being an Eating Psychology Coach?
I love the fact that I can connect with my client and really understand their thought process. Once I see a pattern, I can help them manage it with some techniques.
What does your practice look like?
As mentioned, I’m a health supportive Culinary Chef. My clients vary in age from teens to seniors. I see most of my clients in person in the privacy of their own home. I offer a program that allows me to see my clients a few times. After I see them for consultations, I get to know my client on a deeper level to specialize their meals accordingly.
What was your favorite aspect of the Training?
My favorite part of the program was listening to audios about examples of clients that were counseled by Marc David and how they had breakthroughs. It made me go deeper within myself and let go of some struggles that I did not know I had.
How has being an Eating Psychology Coach impacted your professional life/financial well-being?
Since taking the program it has given me the confidence to take my cooking career to the next level. Since taking the program I worked with many yoga studios, fitness and health clubs designing programs accordingly. It can be my cleanses, along with my food plans, as well as weekly workshops.
How has being an Eating Psychology Coach impacted you personally?
I have learned that being an Eating Psychology Coach made me better understand my client and their struggles. I can now say this program not only helped me, but also gave me the tools to help my clients. I believe I have become stronger by taking this program and learned that people are entitled to their opinions, but it’s ok to step out of the box and voice yours too.
What do you see for yourself in your future as an Eating Psychology Coach – where is your work evolving towards?
I am now in the process of opening up my own health supportive takeaway and meal delivery store front.
Why Would You Recommend the Training to Others?
I would recommend this program to others because it has given me the confidence, that I don’t think I would have had, to take this step in opening up my own cafe.
Anything else you’d like to share?
I always tell my kids anything new is scary, and if it’s not, you are too comfortable. Stepping out of the box and taking risks sometimes is worth it, knowing you could have made a difference whether in yourself or somebody else.
