Understanding your emotional overeating Programme

5 week Introductory Programme

Early Bird enrollment for October starts soon! Places limited

Are you 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 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

It is a good idea to have an initial assessment session. Here, you can expect to gain some enlightenment on understanding your eating, and how to start to tackle it. Early Bird priority will also be given to those who have had an individual initial session.


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

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

Further Modules

The second part of the programme consists of 9 free standing modules. Each module consists of 4 weekly seminars lasting 90 minutes (60 minutes online). These may be taken separately and individually in any order, or all at once continuously.

Module 1 – Emotional Eating

Module 2 – Feelings

Module 3 – Motivation and Empowerment for Change

Module 4 – Food monitoring and choice

Module 5 – Activity

Module 6 – Self Nurture

Module 7 – Relationships

Module 8 – Self Esteem

Module 9 – Body Esteem

You can do any part of the programme in a group or in individual work with me. 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 are run in Southville on a Tuesday or Redland on a Thursday evening.

The cost of the modules are as follows:

5 week Introductory Programme £200/ Early Bird £175

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