An Approach That Works - Weight Loss Masterclasses for Women
Weight Management Masterclass
Weight Sense is a partnership of two therapists that have trained with the National Centre for Eating Disorders (NCfED), the primary organisation in the UK for understanding and working with people who struggle with these issues. NCfED draws on research studies from the UK and USA into what works, what may get in the way, and, importantly, what doesn't work. Both therapists are Master Practitioners, holding Diplomas in Eating Disorders and Obesity as well as Certificates in Practitioner Skills for Eating Disorders, Psychological Skills for Obesity and Overweight, and Nutritional Interventions for Eating Disorders.
Weight sense Masterclass’ are all about helping you to move to a happier relationship with food, eating and weight, using an evidence-based approach that considers all aspects of the problem: mindset, habits, lifestyle, emotional factors, relationships and physiological processes.
6 Hours to Change Your Life
Our exclusive small-group programme is designed by women for women. It is run by qualified and experienced therapists who have trained in the physical and psychological aspects of sustainable weight loss. We hold advanced diplomas in obesity and weight management, as well as diplomas in therapeutic counselling and coaching. We have worked extensively with people who struggle with issues around food, weight and eating, and have also trained other therapists in this field.
Our programme comprises a one day masterclass followed by a personalised one-to-one session, designed to help you to change your behaviour and feelings around food, eating and weight. Weight Sense is a social enterprise that exists solely to help people like you, who are struggling with weight management/loss, rather than to make a profit. If you have tried numerous diets, and have become disheartened about ever achieving sustainable weight loss, there is another way, and our services can help you reach your goal.
Case Study - Christine
When Christine came to us she was unhappily overweight. She was unable to go upstairs without becoming breathless, and she didn't enjoy shopping for clothes, going on holiday with her family or eating out. Her days were dominated by worries about what she would and could eat, and about how she looked. Christine had tried numerous diets; some were completely unsuccessful, on others she lost weight but put it back on soon afterwards. At the same time she felt she didn't eat that much - she sometimes felt faint. She did binge from time to time, an antidote to the endless regime of rules and restraint.
After attending our masterclass and following up with one to one work, Christine has thrown away her diet books. She doesn't count calories or deprive herself. She enjoys her food, including meals out and special occasions. She is eating more most days, and has lost the drive to binge. With her mind freed up from worries about food and weight, Christine is also planning some exciting changes in her life.
