The Happy Weight Programme

I coach people who are SERIOUS about overcoming a life long weight problem (not those interested in another diet or rapid weight loss)

Happy Weight Programme

Have you ever noticed that people who have never had weight issues, talk about, act around and choose food in a completely different way to people who ALWAYS struggle with weight & are ALWAYS on diets? There lies the problem. It is an attitude, an approach and optimism that has to be developed. I’m not saying it is easy but we have to unlearn a LOT from our years of dieting and a worsening weight problem.

Weight Loss Special Programme - Nutritionist Ireland

12 Week Happy Weight

Tailor-made one to one video call/ phone call consultations, every week, twice a week for 12 weeks. There is no set programme, the programme is our sessions. No two people have a weight problem for the same reasons. I will help you identify, and overcome YOUR issues that are blocking you from having an ideal relationship with food, thus letting go of the excess weight caused by negative emotions and negative eating.

When it is your weight problem it feels complicated but in reality, it is not. It is important to get the right help from someone who specialises in this daily. At this stage, helping 1,000s of people over the years, it is quite straightforward. You might spend your days judging what you eat, judging your body & fearing your future health. But with time and effort, this can all be turned around.

If you want rapid weight loss or another diet.. RUN! This is not for you. I work with clients who are at the same low point I was. They are deadly serious about NOT doing another diet (which would risk further weight gain when they inevitably break it). They are serious about stabilising their condition and improving it.

How many sessions with a counselor does it take to cure depression?

How many sessions with a therapist does it take to overcome alcoholism?

If you want to know how many sessions it takes to overcome Binge eating disorder, overeating, food addiction, or help someone who has a lifelong weight problem the answer is I don’t know.

I work with clients with a varying range of starting-off points and therefore varying endpoints.

Some clients start with extreme self-hatred, body loathing, and feel extreme guilt, shame, remorse, regret after eating. They think about their weight and food most of the day. They have very low motivation and feel defeated by the weight problem most of the time.  When we are in this place our eating is the worst, we are generally binging and restricting very often, and our weight is going up and up either gradually or rapidly.

The first step is to get clients to a more neutral place, where they no longer obsess, no longer beat themselves up, no longer feel guilt as severely or as often and they no longer binge or restrict either. They are equipped to eat out, get takeaways and enjoy the experience. Experiences they previously would have dreaded or meant it was a “bad day”. At this point they have stabilised the condition and are either staying the same or slowly losing weight depending on the week.

Once they achieve the neutral stage they can start getting to a positive stage: they have positive psychology and are used to supporting themselves in achieving their goals. Guilt and shame are now seen as delay to our results and they don’t waste time on them. They don’t eat a food if it doesn’t taste that nice. They have no interest in eating any amount of food that could make them feel heavy, lethargic, overfull, or sick: they know they deserve better. They do not follow rules. When we are in the neutral zone and the positive zone our body is getting an opportunity to let go of all of our excess weight that was sustained by our old negative habits.

Please know this is a journey and was for me too. If permanent change and living happily ever after at your ideal weight with a fun, free relationship with food is your goal, you better be willing to accept that it will take time, and a truck load of patience. Be ready to make some uncomfortable, unfamiliar changes to how you have been thinking about and approaching yourself and your weight.

Saddle up if you are ready 😎

Initial 90minute food and mind-set consultation with bespoke folder of resources.

  • This will help you understand the reasons why you have not successfully been able to lose weight and keep it off long term. It will be an education on how different foods interact with your body, effecting your appetite, cravings and eating behaviours.

Following on from the initial consultation we will have a consultation every week for the programme and a second check in call if needed.

  • The focus of the programme is to change your behaviours. Naturally eating less without willpower. Many of my clients have spent their whole lives dieting, so this 12-week period of support is important to finally get over the guilt & shame around foods, which is blocking them from eating in a flexible, unrestricted way and start becoming their ideal weight.

You will be keeping an online food diary, which we will review together on every call. Ensuring the new principles are being implemented.

  • You will have access to the members section of this website which includes guided meditation recordings, recipes and other resources to support you changing your mind-set.

My typical and ideal client is someone like (I used to be):

  • Tried every diet or always on a diet
  • Anxious most of the time about their weight and weight loss
  • Erratic behaviours with food: dieting and then breaking out
  • Always aiming for the “perfect” day, then being disappointed and guilty it didn’t happen. Then planning that tomorrow will be even more “perfect”.
  • Feels guilty after eating
  • Feels ashamed of their weight
  • Sometimes binge eats or secret eats
  • Believes there are good and bad foods
  • Believes they’ve a slow metabolism, can’t lose weight due to their age, body, genetics etc
  • No longer enjoying food, either on diet food or binge food.
  • Feels lost with food, weight loss. Running out of or has no motivation.

When you have many of these symptoms you think its normal. But they are actually the symptoms of an eating disorder. These symptoms are what are blocking you from having a normal, balanced, flexible approach to your eating which will help your weight.

I no longer give out specific food plans & diets. My clients tend to be people who have dieted all their life or most of it. They are fatter now then they were when they started their first diet. And this is a common story.. diets make you fatter overtime. So I will be helping you finally create your own unique approach to food, that fits your metabolism, your tastes, your schedule, your need for comfort from food. Your programme will be completely individual to you, the nutritional advice I give you will be tailored to you.

Asking how many sessions does it take to cure disordered eating is like asking how many sessions do you need to cure depression.

Disordered eating and an addiction to starting another diet/overeating can be an issue for some people since they were children.

To overcome my own disordered eating I invested £10,000s and years and acquired many qualifications.

When working one to one with people I aim to radically shorten that journey and those costs.

I have clients that are happy out when they finish the programme and can do the rest on their own, using all we’ve learned together and all the free resources they are entitled to.

I have clients that do follow up for a little while and for a long while.

It will be like learning a new language. When we think in terms of dieting we think we’ll be happy once we reach our ideal weight.

When we start working on our relationship with food, we realise that every day with a great relationship with food, where we get to feel physically and mentally GREAT is such a prize! And every day where we go back to old ways,  endlessly grazing & overfeeding our body forcing it to gain or sustain excess weight starts seeming like an unnecessary punishment.

I help people get better & better at snapping out of that “I’m back at square one, I’ve not progressed at all” & snap back into “I’ve got this”  until it becomes second nature.

Because you don’t need a diet to lose weight, you need to stop doing the things that you are doing that are forcing your body to stay at a higher weight.

The price initially for some might seem high but consider there will be 1.5hour initial consultation and approx 1+ hours per week of support, plus additional resources. When you factor these in as well as my qualifications and experience, you could end up spending the same with diet books, recipe books, slimming clubs, subscriptions and cheaper consultations that lead to nothing.

Weight and food is something that is on some peoples minds all day everyday, causing a lot of stress, anxiety and even depression. Getting support with this if you feel like that is imperative, whether it is from me or someone else, improving your relationship with food and yourself is an investment in feeling better every single day. You will see from the testimonials section, this has been my clients experience. People might spend this on a holiday, but your relationship with food, good or bad, is going to be every day of you life.

Until further notice my coaching takes place via video call or phone call

The 12 week programme is €1,500

For me, it is vital that you are willing to invest time (some clients can take up to 26hours in the programme) and money because that shows they are committed.

People usually choose to pay in instalments €500 to confirm programme, €500 at week 4. €500 at week 8.

I no longer take referrals. I don’t work with teenagers unless they are the bill payers.

If you are looking on behalf of anyone else please don’t. If they can use a phone and use google they can find their own support. If they haven’t it is telling. I could tell you 100s of stories of how damaging this can be, but I’ll just stop at if you are a mother, no sorry I cannot work with your daughter.

The Aim is That As Well As Losing Weight You Gain:
