Make the connection between your emotions and your eating habits so that you can break free from dieting and enjoy a happier, healthier relationship with food (and your body).
As a food and eating psychology coach, I know that diets are not the answer to our weight worries and body image concerns. For most of us, gaining an understanding of how our feelings and eating habits interact, and learning how to deal with our feelings without using food is a complete game-changer. The knowledge and tools I share in this course have completely changed the way I feel about food and have had a hugely positive impact on the lives of many other women – I can't wait to share it with you.
In the first module, you'll be taught a technique that will enable you to identify your triggers for eating other than biological hunger, and get to grips with how you can create mindful awareness of your eating habits.
In the second module we look at how we learn to associate feelings and food. We explore how you currently experience emotion and discover how that, and things like stress, sleep and self-compassion can affect your eating behaviour.
In the final module, you'll be given some actionable and incredibly effective techniques that you can use to work on your triggers for emotional eating. Different triggers respond to different approaches, so we work through each in detail.
"Learn how to stop snacking. If, like us, you can't stop eating right now, you might want to try food and eating psychology coach, Josie Buck's Overcome Emotional Eating course."
"Thank you, Josie, your course was VERY helpful! It’s logical progression, even when some of the information was familiar (actually, especially when it was familiar, i.e. tried, tested & failed!) has enabled me to make some real & hopefully lasting changes in my life, not just my eating habits but diet & exercise too. Your constant encouragement to take things slowly was also hugely helpful. Now, I’m astonishing myself!"
" What a brilliantly constructed, informative and inspiring course. We often talk about emotional eating, but don't ever take the time to examine our emotions and why certain situations trigger our responses. Broken into small units, the course helps you understand the why, how and crucially, the tactics you can put into place to help overcome any challenges you may face. The best thing is with the support videos and downloaded workbooks, you can take the course at your own pace and revisit the exercises as often as you need. I would highly recommend this course and taking the time to invest in yourself."
" I am learning more about myself, the relationship between my emotions and food and how this impacts on me. The course builds on each unit, is well paced and informative and supported by lots of helpful worksheets, videos and additional sources of information. I would highly recommend this course. It is enlightening and challenging in a very positive way and I can see how it will help me both now and in the future."

This course focuses on the interaction between emotions and our eating habits and is particularly relevant for anyone wanting to stop cyclical patterns of dieting. If you have concerns that you might have an eating disorder, then I would recommend seeking professional support from specialists. A good starting point might be to contact the helpline team at BEAT eating disorder charity.
When you enrol you will get a user name and password that will provide you with access to the learning centre. You can access the course material from a PC, tablet or phone. The course is made up of short introductory videos, written and audio lessons (you can download audio files and listen rather than read) and downloadable PDF worksheets and journaling frameworks.
This course will help you to make the connection between your emotions and your eating habits. In doing some of the exercises you might notice that you are eating for reasons other than biological hunger and you'll be provided with techniques that will help you to change those behaviours. It will also help you to identify any negative thought patterns that you might be caught up in about your body and support you in improving your body image. The focus is more on improving your relationship with food than it is on weight loss, although weight loss might be an indirect outcome of completing the course.
There are notable differences between emotional eating and binge eating. This is a question that comes up a lot so I have written an article explaining the differences. Read the article here.
If you have been using diet methods to manage your weight, sometimes it can feel scary to make the transition away from prescribed eating plans and move more towards placing trust in yourself. If you have concerns like this, then it might be a good idea to start the course and carry on with the diet while you adjust. At the start of the course, we using a mindful eating journal to support you in paying gentle awareness to your eating behaviours, you could use this as a way to experiment a little with being 'off plan' and building trust in yourself. By the end of the course, it's my hope that you will have a great deal of insight into yourself and the tools that you need to feel far more free and comfortable around food.
Hi there, I'm Josie. I'm a Food and Eating Psychology Coach. It's my mission to help women to change the way they relate to food and their bodies. To dissociate with diet culture and other influences that have negatively impacted the way they feel about those things and to learn to develop compassionate and assured relationships with themselves.
I had a troubled relationship with food myself for many years and have first-hand experience of what it takes to break free from dieting and discover a relaxed and enjoyable relationship with food. This experience, coupled with my training in eating psychology and applied nutrition, has enabled me to teach hundreds of women how to transform their health and eating habits.
I run online courses, a membership programme and award-winning retreats. I look forward to working with you!
Emotions, and the way we feel about ourselves, have a big impact on our eating behavours. If you find that your emotions are driving you to eat regularly, then the result is very often the same. The effect is temporary, the emotions don’t go away, and you likely also bear the additional burden of guilt. This can lead to an unhealthy cycle: your emotions trigger you to overeat, you beat yourself up for sabotaging your health efforts, you feel bad and overeat again. The good news is that you can take steps to break this cycle. This course provides you with the knowledge, detailed exercises and frameworks you need to make positive changes so that you can feel more in control of your behaviour around food and so much happier in yourself. No need for dieting ever again.
