THE TIME IS NOW!
Losing weight has a bad press but it is one of THE most important things you can do for your physical health and mental wellbeing.
Working in the NHS I have first hand experience of people living with diabetes or who have suffered a stroke, have heart disease, high blood pressure and cardiovascular conditions. The majority of these conditions are preventable and are related to living unhealthy lifestyles over long perods of time - we are ticking time bombs.
We are made to feel it is our fault - we eat too much, we don't exercise enough, we don't have enough willpower - but this is not the case!
The reason you're overweight is complex and needs a multi faceted solution grounded in science. Giving you a diet sheet and telling you to come back once a week is not going to work.
The TIME IS NOW provides Weight Loss Courses, Healing Workshops, Hypnotherapy and Private Coaching and means you can
STOP DIETING immediately and instead apply scientific biopsychosocial approaches to lose weight.
THIS IS FOR YOU IF:
*You struggle with your weight, you've had enough and feel now is the time that something has to change.
* You have tried diets and realise they don't work, you lose weight only to regain it and dieting makes you miserable.
* You find yourself overeating, comfort eating or binge eating or eating for reasons other than being hungry.
*You feel self conscious and avoid clothes shopping and some social events because of your weight.
* You are ready to break out of old thinking patterns, habits and behaviours and create a new version of you.
* You may already be hugely successful in all other areas of your life, you could be 'large and in charge' or in the public eye and your weight is part of your persona but your weight is the one thing you that doesn't fully reflect all that you can be or it may be affecting your health and wellbeing.
There IS a version of YOU who is body confident, happy, healthy and living life to the full!
It's not about food.
It's your mindset.
Losing weight AND developing a healthy relationship with food is a battle of the mind - not of the body. If losing weight was as simple as eating less and exercising more then no-one would be overweight. This is a hugely oversimplistic way of trying to understand weight loss. It is so much more complex and sadly the odds are firmly stacked against you. It's also about understanding the environment we live in all designed to encourage us to eat, eat whatever just eat more.
The truth is that its not about what you eat, it starts with what you think.
BUT it's not just about what you think - it's also about being educated and understanding the obesogenic environment we live in and how this is literally designed to lure you and keep you trapped in poor eating patterns.
There are actually THREE factors at play:
Your Mindset, Your Body Chemistry, Your Environment
Our thoughts arise as a result of all of our life experiences, good and bad. As a result of our personal stories we develop a narrative in our minds about who we are, what we believe (about ourselves and others) and we are conditioned by our inner thoughts and our outer environment to create patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving. Our mind is complex and powerful and drives self limiting behaviours such as fear, doubt, self sabotage and procrastination. Understanding the mind enables us to develop self mastery, release negative thought patterns and frees us to imagine and create a different future for ourselves. I use a combination of psychological approaches including combining hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and deconditioning the mind from the body which is driven by our past experiences. Add coaching and this is a winning formula for success.
This is a game changer. Understanding your body chemistry and combining this knowledge with behavioural and dietary approaches you will find that your cravings, urges and compulsions to overeat or make poor food choices will stop or reduce signficantly. They become fleeting thoughts ONLY, and you're not compelled to act on them. You can tell when your body chemistry drives eating behaviours because we feel a tension between what our body wants to eat and what we say to ourselves about not eating it. We all know the feeling when we want to eat the biscuits/cake/ sweets and there's an internal dialogue about how we shouldn't be doing it. We either succumb in the end and feel guilty or we don't have the cake but feel deprived or miserable. This work stops this exhausting dialogue and cuts it out entirely.
This is huge but under-rated and hardly acknowledged in weight loss programmes.
We are surrounded by food and losing weight and keeping it off feels virtually impossible. Our environment is packed with messages which encourage us to eat and to eat more. Supermarkets, restaurants, petrol stations, advertising, celebrations and events - everywhere, food is pushed in our faces. Shops start to stock Easter eggs as early as January and mince pies in October. The food industry wants us to buy more food and we see this in promotional food offers in every direction, emotional messages focussed on 'treating yourself' and caring by feeding others. Losing weight and keeping it off means we need to protect ourselves from these messages and prompts to eat more food and instead be more environmentally savvy.

Weight Loss Mentality Course
Weight Loss Mentality Course
This is a 2 Day Online Group Course.
This course is currently offered as a 2 Day Online Workshop but will also be available as a self paced learning programme from Summer 2023 where modules are released each week enabling you to watch in your own time at your own pace.
You will not be alone!
There are 'Accountability & Support Pods' available each week where you can join for group support or for specific questions.
This course is focussed on transforming the way you think,
feel and behave around food.
Do you binge eat or think you may be addicted to food?
Then a weight loss course might not be best for you right now.
If you need to do further work on healing your relationship with food then consider joining a 1 Day Food Healing Workshop. Workshops focus on food addiction, binge eating, overeating. comfort eating and food addiction - basically any reason for eating which is not because you're hungry.
The workshops are in depth and you will identify and address the drivers for your overeating or chaotic eating. By doing this groundwork you will feel like a weight has literally been lifted from your shoulders and give you the knowledge and confidence to help you regain control.
A 3, 6 or 9 month coaching package is available which includes a personalised journey through the Weight Loss Mentallity Course and tailored support and coaching to guide you through your weight loss journey. The 3 month period is the expected amount of time to get noticable, visible results physically and embed new thoughts and behaviours. The length of time will depend upon how much weight you have to lose and how much support you feel you need.
This is ideal if you have a specific time or reason to lose weight such as a a wedding or other special occasion, fertility planning, preparing for surgery or because you've simply had enough and need the weight off in a specific time frame.
