What's your Food Story?

Food we love has its own story


We’ve been taught that it’s simply a matter of balancing calories in and calories out.  We are told If we increase our exercise and activity levels the pounds will fall away.  If we fail to see the results we want, we lose heart and society tells us we are not trying hard enough.

 Your unique relationship with food depends on: 

Your culture, memories, personal and family history - When I was growing up I always had to finish all the food on my plate.

Thoughts, emotions and feelingsOften nothing to do with food. We've all experienced difficulty swallowing food when we're upset. 

Positive and negative beliefs about what you are eating - I’m going to pile on the calories after eating this. 

All of these impact your metabolism and digestion. This is the mind and body connection at work.

The mind and body work together

Think about how your body feels when you think you've lost your phone or your car keys.  Your heart rate increases, your breathing becomes shallow and your mind goes into overdrive.  At times of stress blood is taken away from the digestive process to deal with the current situation...read more

 Food can be a major comforter and it's at the center of many happy life events. It's only natural we would associate certain types of food with feeling happy, loved, excited or cared for. At times of difficulty we reach for these foods to bring us that comfort. 

No wonder we develop cravings for particular 

foods. Mine's cake the FOOD STORY is my father worked as a part time baker and used to bring home the goodies. 

Recognising  the emotions that cause us to reach for our trigger foods is a vital part of transforming them with Tapping .  We look at the connection between the mind and the body.

Potions, Rituals and Tapping

 Reduce your desire for sugary drinks and alcohol. Drink fewer caffeinated drinks  and increase your desire to drink water!  

Break your rituals and associations with drinking. 

In our house, Sunday was treat day and we always had fizzy drinks.  If you didn't get yours you felt hard done by.

Many of us meet up with the girls every Friday to share our troubles and some giggles over a bottle of wine.

Tap to get moving

 How about increasing your motivation for exercise?  This week's all about clearing the psychological blocks and self-talk that stops us moving.  Use EFT Tapping to support you in exploring new ways of being active and creating new habits.

Tapping: the tool in your Pocket

Relax and let go

Let go of the past and progress

 Discover and release the underlying issues that have stopped you from making progress before. 

Break away from social pressures and judgments and stop worrying about what people might think about you. 

Tap to feel safe outside your comfort zone and excited about the new possibilities that are opening up for you.

You are worthy of love

The confidence to change

 It's often challenging to make different eating choices around family or friends.  Simply saying 'NO' instead of an expected 'Yes' can be difficult. 

This can mean choosing not to partake of the weekly takeaway treat when you always have in the past.  It could mean choosing not to have a bit of that sugary desert your Mum has always made for you in the past - it's all made easier when you feel confident and committed to your new way of eating. 

Autumn carefree, letting go

Individual sessions are available

Sometimes it's helpful to have the support of a one to one session.  Go deeper into a particular facet of your weight and self worth challenges. We want to make the changes you need for your individual progress. 

Friendship, fun, laughter

Getting to the reasons behind your eating habits

We can't wait see how far you'll have come by the end of your first 4 weeks. True changes in emotional, psychological and physical well being and a new understanding of the way your body responds. 

 As we're interested in lasting change remember to be kind to yourself and that everyone works at their own pace. 

Love, celebration, selfie, carnival.


We will get together once a week for a live tapping and phycology of eating session.

Zoom is easy to download on your phone, tablet or computer and simple to use. I send you a link each week so you can join.

Interaction is encouraged, but you decide how much. You can turn on your camera and be a part of the supportive, inclusive atmosphere or simply send and receive messages and watch the session live. 

You can catch up on the sessions up to a week later in case you miss one or you just want to watch it again.
