Compulsive overeating is triggered by poor eating habits, emotional and psychological stresses (anxiety and depression) and making poor food choices. In order to lose weight permanently you must change your thinking about yourself and your relationship to food. Food can serve many functions: companion, distractor, means to avoid emotions and activity. In the 20 week "Mind Set Program" you will learn how: your emotions and thoughts set you into motion to overeat, to eat in a healthy manner promoting weight loss and a healthy attitudes towards food, and create your "personal healthy environment" where you incorporate exercise and nutritious foods into your daily life.

While I do not have a specific training to help people suffering from eating disorders, I do use forms of therapy that are helpful with addressing these problems. Mindfulness and Dialectical-Behavioral therapy (DBT) offer specific skills to manage one's emotions and reactions to stress, anxiety and depression, which often underlie eating disorders. I often see patients who suffer from binge eating/emotional eating or mild forms of bulimia in addition to other problems, such as low self-esteem, history of childhood abuse and anxiety or depression. Over or under eating or compulsive exercise is a form of numbing one's pain, similarly to using alcohol, drugs, gambling or shopping.

The book I wrote is called THE THIN BOOK and it is essentially the most a compilation of my most effective and successful hypnotherapy transcripts for weight management and weight loss. It has been translated into six languages and contains a CD in which I do several of the trances from the book. I also use guided energy and psychotherapy techniques such as ego-building with my eating disorder clients.
