Understanding Emotional Eating When It Comes to Feeling Safe-In Session with Marc David

Written By:


Sometimes living on Planet Earth can feel like a game of survival – and for some of us, that’s a lifelong experience.

In today’s episode of the podcast, food psychology teacher Marc David works with 47-year old Isabelle.

As a child, Isabelle endured years of physical abuse from her stepfather, and subsequently never developed the feeling of emotional safety.

Now a mother herself, Isabelle is recognizing that her patterns around emotional eating are deeply intertwined with her childhood experiences, and the challenge she’s had as an adult of forgiving her now elderly mom for looking the other way.

Food and Emotional Safety Session

In their coaching session, Marc shares some powerful paradigm shifts and strategies for reconnecting and finally experiencing the emotional safety that we all need to be healthy humans.

As Marc teaches, when we truly work on our relationship with food, we’re driven to go deeper: far beyond what’s on our plate, or what and when we eat.

For so many of us, working on our relationship with food also means that we’re doing the inner work to resolve the pain and heartbreak we’ve experienced along the path of life.
