How Emotional Eating Counselling Helps

Food has an amazing ability to distract you from challenging emotions, like sadness, anger, and worry.

Unfortunately, the distraction food can offer you is usually only a temporary fix.

These kinds of habits can also be major roadblocks to achieving your body and wellness goals.

With the help a counsellor, you can easily make sense of why you turn to food when experiencing challenging emotions.

By taking this step, you can develop other ways of coping that fit better with your wellbeing.

Counselling for emotional eating can help you:

  • Learn to validate your feelings, offering yourself compassionate support
  • Gain awareness of when you are most likely to turn to food, and start practicing new ways of responding in those moments
  • Larn to forgive yourself when the urge to distract from your emotions with food is too great
  • Get encouragement and support along your journey toward change
  • Realize that you do not have to do this on your own, and that help is available to you right now
