As a former certified lifestyle and weight management coach and body conditioning specialist, I spent over a dozen years with many people I can now identify as living with toxic or traumatic stress triggered by a broad spectrum of experiences. Focusing on the mechanics of weight loss often just made their stress worse.
Many years ago, I stopped working as a weight loss coach as I observed something much more fundamental happening in relation to food. Nervous system dysregulation impacted how my weight loss clients were able to consciously choose to nourish their bodies in the present because they were either living in past pain or future fear or they were cut off from sensation in their bodies.
THIS WEBINAR IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR PEOPLE LIVING WITH ACTIVE DISORDERED EATING. NOR IS IT A REPLACEMENT FOR PSYCHOTHERAPY, DISORDERED EATING RECOVERY SERVICES OR QUALIFIED MENTAL HEALTH CARE.
This webinar will offer psychoeducation with tools for self regulation in relation to food and nourishment:
1) What is the window of tolerance for stress and how living outside your window of tolerance might be driving your relationship to food.
2) How food intake or lack there of will impact your nervous system dysregulation and your brain function and why fasting can exacerbate traumatic stress systems.
3) What tools you could access to regulate your nervous system instead of food intake or food restriction.
4) Why intuitive eating can be inaccessible for people living with nervous system dysregulation and how the health of your vagus nerve will determine access to feelings of satiation or hunger.
5) When to seek psychotherapeutic support instead of nutritional coaching or guidance for eating challenges.
