There are different reasons for being over weight

Struggling to lose weight? Cant seem to stick to a healthy eating regime? You probably know what to do to lose weight but something is stopping you from either moving towards to your goal or sticking with your plan to lose weight. Nowadays there is so much information and education about healthy eating, calories, carbs, exercise etc. It’s not that we don’t what we should do to eat healthily and lose weight. It’s more about the subconscious drive to comfort eat. Feeling not good enough, overwhelmed, fearful, lonely or anxious are just a few of the powerful emotions which drive us to self sooth.  Food can help us feel better almost immediately. We get a huge dopamine hit but it’s short lived an temporary. So we self sooth more and more often to feel better. Sometimes we aren’t aware consciously what we are feeling deep down. 

Top Tips to fight comfort eating

  1. Recognise the triggers. Keep a dairy to help you understand what is happening when you need to eat.
  2. Find an alternative way to met your emotional needs. 
  3. Treat yourself in ways that doesn’t involve food. A new book, a candle lit bath or  a nice walk.
  4. Practice sitting with uncomfortable emotions. Acknowledge them instead of distracting or dismissing.
  5. Book some sessions with one of our qualified and experienced therapists.

Low self esteem? Lacking in confidence? This can help.

confidence-self-esteem

Are you experiencing one of the following symptoms?

There are many different reasons for low self esteem and/or lack of confidence

Real Self Confidence and Esteem is based in emotion, not a self image.
To build self confidence and overcome low self esteem is to change how we feel emotionally about ourselves. To change our emotion requires changing two different core beliefs about self image. The first core belief is obvious. It is the belief that we are not good enough. It may have a more specific association to how we look, how smart we are, money, or lack of confidence sexually. The second core belief to change is the image of success that we feel we should be. Changing this belief is contrary to logic, but is a must if we are to overcome insecurity and raise our self esteem.

You would be amazed at the number of people that have a problem with low self-esteem or a lack of confidence. However, just imagine how it would be to live your life feeling confident in who you are and in your abilities.  Just think of all the things you could achieve if you had that self-esteem and felt as confident as you imagine other people to feel. 

Top Tips to fight lack of confidence and self esteem

  1. Challenge your limiting beliefs .
  2. Do things that take you outside your comfort zone
  3. Surround yourself with positive people.
  4. Stop putting yourself down.
  5. Heal your past, book some sessions with one of our skilled therapists.

Feeling stuck & unfulfilled

Feeling stuck & unfulfilled

Feeling stuck? This can help.

feeling-stuck-unfulfilled

Are you experiencing one of the following symptoms?

There are many different reasons for feeling stuck

It is useful to consider what may be holding you back from taking opportunities. Is is fear? Fear of failure? Fear of succeeding? Fear of loss perhaps? Is it that your are with the wrong tribe? People you may like but do not inspire you, share your interests, challenge you and admire you. 

Maybe your boring unfulfilling job is safe because you know it inside out and changing jobs may feel scary. Maybe your calling is something more creative but you’ve been held back by others’ believes about a ‘proper job’. Perhaps you’ve settled for a mediocre but safe relationship, feeling like you don’t deserve any better. 

In whatever way you feel stuck, unfulfilled or bored it will be perception. Your perception. But ask yourself why this is.  As suggested it is about fear. Our mind doesn’t like change especially if change involves the unfamiliar. Uncertainty feels scary, uncomfortable and stressful. So staying stuck, although unfulfilling, feels the safer option.

Top Tips to fight being stuck

  1. Look for a change of environment.
  2. Try a few new activities; don’t settle on any one until you feel excited and challenged.  
  3. Get out and meet new people. The more you meet the more opportunities will come your way.
  4. Accept you are stuck. Take responsibility for you. Know that you need to make changes. Don’t run away however. Move on. Grow.
  5. Book some sessions with one of our experienced therapists.

Anger

Anger

Suffering from anger? This can help.

anger-management

Are you experiencing one of the following symptoms?

There are many different causes for holding and or feeling anger

Anger is a healthy and purposeful emotion; it’s intention is to protect you, keep you safe. However, when anger rises in situations where you are not threatened, or there is no clear risk there will be an underlying cause. Anger will still be protecting you. Look at feelings underneath the anger and you will find a myriad of feelings which your anger is trying to hide, to protect you from realising and/or feeling. Feelings of not feeling worthy, feeling disrespected, not listened to, guilty, ashamed, fearful or that you don’t matter to others. These aren’t the only emotions, feelings and beliefs of course.  

Your subconsciously held limiting beliefs drive your feelings, attitude and behaviour without you consciously being aware of it. You may find you judge yourself telling yourself “this is  ridiculous”, ” there is something wrong with me” or “I don’t understand why I am like this”. You may be risking relationships, jobs, promotions or opportunities because your feelings and anger get the way.  

Top Tips to fight the anger feelings

  1. Breathe. The  7/11 breathing technique will allow the Adrenalin and cortisol to dissipate and restore blood flow to your thinking brain (Pre Frontal cortex).
  2. Realise that people are all fellow strugglers. While they seem to be selfish or inconsiderate this is often not the case. They have issues and problems too. 
  3. Keep a journal so you can identity patterns. Often anger is a result of built up stress and feeling overwhelmed. Keeping a journal can help you identify patterns so you can manage things better. 
  4. Exercise is an excellent way to promote dopamine and endorphins and regular exercise will help you feel less angry. 
  5. Book some sessions with a professional therapist.
