Do you ever wonder what’s beyond emotional eating?

Then take a look at Eddins Counseling’s newest group . . .

Discover Empowered Eating – The New Path for Making Peace With Food and Ending the Cycle of Overeating, Binging, and Craving

empowered-eatingThis course is designed to go deep and jump start transformation in the way you approach food, eating, and your body.

We will be using a curriculum called Root of Hunger TM for teaching skills to discover the root of your emotional hunger and get what you really need, so that the urges to eat are naturally reduced and you are no longer at the mercy of food cravings and emotion-driven eating.

It’s a flexible, gentle approach that develops each woman’s inner wisdom to know what is uniquely right for them.

This is an 8 week virtual group experience delivered in two parts. Every week you will receive a “lesson” which includes awareness practices. This is followed by a weekly interactive teleseminar where you will get to ask questions and participate in interactive exercises to enhance your learning. Additionally, you have the option of interacting with us and each other in a private Facebook group.

After the 8 weeks of the intensive portion of the group, there will be a live monthly follow up session for 3 months, with an option of remaining in the follow up group.

This group is led by Rachel Eddins and Lisa Newman, Emotional Eating Coaches.

“If you have struggled with self-care or your eating habits and find eating is triggered by your emotional state or eating triggers your emotions, you need to be a part of this group. We are too complex to go it alone and this class helps teach tools to be mindful, introspective and in touch with your needs. It also teaches how to find ways of meeting your needs without food and to enjoy food for what it is.” – Participant

An ideal client for this group is a woman who:

  • what drives your overeatingHas a history of dieting only to regain the lost weight
  • Feels out of control around food, and overeats or binges, especially in the afternoon or evenings
  • Grazes or eats when not hungry
  • Feels compelled to eat comfort foods
  • Feels successful in other areas in her life, but not around food
  • Thinks about food often, anticipating the next eating occasion
  • Has food as their primary source of pleasure and fun
  • Finds food to be comforting, soothing, and a reliable way to calm or relax when feeling tired, stressed, overwhelmed, or other unpleasant emotions
  • Feels sad, ashamed, and guilty about her weight
  • Is tired of living her life struggling against food and her body

What participants have said after completing this course:

“I have found my voice.”

“Fantastic content and subject matter.”

beyond emotional eating“Because of this course, I am kinder to myself.”

“I am now able to identify when I am eating as a way of avoiding feelings. I am able to identify those feelings, which is incredibly helpful.”

“I have discovered pleasure. I now stop to take a deep breath and realize that I eat in a hurry with very little consideration or enjoyment.”

“I think more before I eat. Instead of trying for perfect, I aim for good enough. I realize now that some of my negative thoughts are not based in reality.”

“I have gained more body acceptance.”

“I am more in touch with my body and what it needs – not just my mouth hunger, not just the well developed pathways that trigger cravings. I feel empowered to feed my body in a way that exemplifies self-care and am able to accept and enjoy foods that would previously trigger feelings of guilt.”


Why should you consider an interactive virtual group experience?

Group experience is the most powerful format for rapid transformation, but for some the challenges of meeting on-site are too high. These include such things as scheduling conflict, geographic limitations, and fear of exposure to others. A virtual group provides a similar interactive experience, recordings for those who cannot make every session, and the ability to interact more anonymously by voice, without worry about being judged by others.

At the completion of the program, our goal is that you will no longer feel controlled and undermined by emotional eating. You will no longer need to fight against your body and appetite, and will be in charge of food rather than food being in charge of you.

  • You will have awareness and understanding of the unique drivers of your emotional eating, and will have tools to manage emotions and provide self soothing that are more effective and rewarding than eating.
  • You will be able to tap into your own inner wisdom as to what and when to eat so that you no longer need external rules and restrictions.
  • You will have learned how to decode the messages and meaning in your emotions to reconnect with your life purpose and find deeper pleasure in living.

What’s The Course Schedule?

Written lessons will be provided every Wednesday. The lessons will include a mixture of questions to think and/or journal about as well as awareness practices.

Live sessions will occur every Monday at 7-8:15 p.m. Central Standard Time (1 a.m. Central European Time and 11 a.m. Tuesday Australian Eastern Time). The session will last approximately 1 hour, 15 minutes.

How Do I Participate?

Once you are registered we will deliver your lessons via e-mail on the weekly release date.

For the live calls, we will provide you with a U.S. number to call and an access code. (This should be free if you’re calling from a cell phone.) You will also be able to participate through the audio on your computer.

There’s no need to worry about the technology as we will be providing full instructions and guiding you through it.

How Will The Live Sessions Work?

We will present some information to the group, and lead some whole group practices, and facilitate break out sessions where you can practice in small groups.

We will also have time for individual questions, and quick coaching through stuck places. For this, the system has a way for you to virtually “raise your hand” so that we can un-mute you. You can also pose your questions in the private Facebook group, or send them to us ahead of time.

What If I Can’t Attend A Live Session?

The live sessions will be recorded for participant use in this group only and you will be given access to these recordings. (Only the large group discussion will be recorded. Your work in break out groups is private.)

Anyone wanting a partner for additional practice or for makeup can post that in the private Facebook group.
