Maureen McLoughlin: Weight Management & Recovery from Loss
Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
Do you feel stuck in a never ending cycle of good intentions and a longing to change only to find yourself back where you started from or worse? Coaching is a collaborative process which can help you to understand the thoughts and behaviours which drive you and help you to make the changes needed to get to where you want to be - free to live the life you deserve.
I am a coach with a special interest in weight management, anxiety and how to deal with loss and recovery from grief.
Weight Management & Disordered Eating
Food and the sharing of food plays such an important part in our lives and yet it is so very easy to develop an unhealthy relationship with it. Do you feel as if you have been on a diet forever and yet you are still gaining weight? Are you sick of the constant treadmill of overeating and dieting? Does food consume your thoughts all day long? Do you binge and purge in secret? Are you full of guilt and shame and constantly berating yourself for not having enough will-power to change? Do you wish you could understand why you always self-sabotage?
If you would like to be free from cravings and have a more relaxed relationship with food let me help you to understand the mix of associations, patterns, beliefs and behaviours that keep you stuck and maintain your struggle with your weight.
For some, losing weight centres on nutritional education and a personalised food plan and for those the Metabolic Balance Programme can work really well. For many though it is a far more complex issue. Low self-esteem, trauma, and poor attachment issues are just some of the problems that can influence our relationship with food. Disordered eating is often used as a way to deal with difficult emotions and has low self-worth at its core. Using a mixture of coaching, therapeutic input and nutritional interventions recovery training shows that an alternative way of living is possible.
The Grief Recovery Method
Unresolved grief is often at the heart of much of our pain. When we think of loss we primarily think of death and divorce but there are many types of loss. Redundancy and job loss can have a profound effect on our sense of self - of our status in the community. Loss of health, moving away from family and friends, loss of trust and the death of a much-loved pet are just some of the many life events that can cause us to grieve. The Grief Recovery Method is the only scientifically proven method that helps to deal with the pain of loss as we come to terms with our unfulfilled hopes, dreams and expectations for the future. It enables us to move from being a person consumed with pain and despair to someone who can look forward with hope. As a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist, I will guide you through the 7-week programme as you take a series of steps that will help you to heal your pain and to feel whole once again.
I know how hard it can be to take that first step towards recovery but please let me help you. I will listen and never judge and can promise you complete confidentiality as we explore any issues you may have, helping you to discover less destructive ways of coping in the future.
