Question: How does it work?
Diana has been working with people for years helping them to understand how the mind and body work, and the role of emotions in our daily choices and habits.
Mindfulness, meditation, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy techniques can help you take what you KNOW you want to do and then actually MAKE it happen.
Diana will teach you how to get started with making healthy habits and getting rid of old, unhealthy ones.
She will help you get emotional distance from unpleasant memories, events, and pain from the past so that you can move forward with confidence.
Question: Will I have to be weighed or count calories?
No, you are not weighed or made to count calories. You will learn to become motivated to eat better, and create goal-oriented plans that help you to take positive, achievable steps toward your own personal definition of success.
Question: What is Diana’s success rate?
This is about your success rate, not Diana’s. You enjoy a quality, comprehensive program, and have support tools to keep good things happening between sessions.
Change comes from within as Diana helps you understand the true source of emotional eating, which is usually rooted in some sort of trauma, such as growing up in a dysfunctional family of origin, or sexual abuse, emotional and/or physical trauma, or a combination of these or other problematic issues.
When you learn how to understand yourself, then you hold the key to personal growth and you can begin to heal the emotional eating patterns.
The best part is that therapy, as Diana teaches her clients, is a true learning process, and you can learn to trust yourself to maintain your healthy lifestyle.
