Sick of diets?

This clear, step-by-step programme, will reward you with:

  • Strategies for reducing compulsive eating
  • Ways to manage how you feel
  • Self respect
  • A positive future



Do you want to have more self confidence?

‘Understanding Your Eating’ is a programme that has specific exercises to help you explore and understand your comfort eating. It gives you strategies to find a better way of coping.

In this programme you will:

  • Think about how you use food, so that you can be better placed to choose how you use food in the future.
  • You will learn to have much better ways of managing your feelings, and will be less tempted to use food to comfort yourself.
  • You will become more confident, with better self esteem and a better body image.
  • You will find that food becomes much less of an anxiety and no longer dominates your thinking.

I am a licensed practitioner of the National ‘Understanding your Eating’ programme. *Warning* This link will take you away from Shelley Treacher’s website  and the Understanding your Eating programme in Bristol: http://www.understandingyoureating.co.uk/index.html

Are you using food to cope?

The ‘Understanding your Eating’ programme is for you if:

  • You are even vaguely aware that your overeating is driven by emotions, rather than hunger.
  • You don’t want to be told what to eat or how much.
  • You want strategies to overcome your eating patterns and behaviour.

Doing this course has the potential to really change your life.


Book in for a brief chat

Book a short telephone call with me to work out your best way forward.


Book an assessment session

Everyone who takes the programme will start with an initial individual assessment session. Here, you can expect to gain some enlightenment and understanding of your eating, and how to start to tackle it. This will also show you if the programme is right for you at this time.


Not ready yet?

Contact me via the contact form here. I will then send you more information, to give you an idea of how I can help.


Who this programme is not for

If you have an unresolved traumatic history, it is advisable to seek psychotherapy with another specialist before coming to this programme.

This programme is not for people looking for diet or nutrition advice. Nor is it for those looking to restrict eating as a primary method for weight loss.

Introductory Programme Structure

The ‘Introduction’ consists of a series of 5 seminars, usually conducted weekly and lasting 90 minutes (60 minutes online).

These seminars will give you a good grounding in understanding your emotional eating, and starting to implement ways to overcome it.

The sessions are:

Seminar 1 – Eating is not just about hunger

Seminar 2 – Eating to manage feelings

Seminar 3 – Self esteem and how it helps you look after yourself better

Seminar 4 – Improving body esteem

Seminar 5 – Using people instead of food to get you through the day

I have limited day time individual 1:1 appointments available now for the 5 week intro programme. If you wish to continue afterwards, it is possible to join others in group for further modules! At the moment I have a few ladies waiting to take Module 2.

You can take any part of the programme in a group or in individual work with me (availabiity depending). There is much to suggest that group work, bonding with your peers, and receiving that extra support, is the most effective way forward.

An introduction group has between 6 and 12 people; the further modules have between 6 and 8. Each group is psycho-educational and confidential.

I run the 5 week introductory programme throughout the year. The further modules run on demand, once the introductory course has been completed.

These may be run in areas around central Bristol on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evening. The latest group is in Redland at Fulcrum House on a Wednesday evening.

The cost of the programme is as follows:

Introductory Assessment £60

5 week Introductory Programme £200/ Early Bird £175

Each of the 9 further modules £160/ Early Bird £140
