Emotional Eating eBook

Learn to be free! A guide to living well and soothing yourself in ways other than food

Dr Cate Howell OAM, CSM, PhD (Med.) 

Over the years, Dr Cate Howell OAM, CSM, PhD (Med.) has worked with many clients who wished to lose weight. She’s seen them utilise various “diets” and lifestyle changes, work with dieticians, coaches and personal trainers, and undergo bariatric surgery, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and hypnotherapy. During this time, a common issue found that gets in the way of attaining the desired goals, is ‘emotional eating’ (EE).

In the ‘Emotional Eating: Learn to be free (EE-Free)’ program, readers begin by answering 10 of the common questions about EE, and then focus on different approaches and strategies that can help you find freedom from EE. It is important to remember that the title of this program includes ‘learn to be free’: as with learning any new activity (such as a sport or foreign language) or way of being, overcoming EE involves learning new ways of managing thoughts, feelings and behaviours. This involves effort and practice. As a result, there are practical ideas to try, and reflections and exercises to undertake. The program will also provide a supportive voice and encouragement as you learn more about yourself, and it will highlight additional resources for you to tap into.  

This book and program is about living well, and improving your health and wellbeing so that you can find freedom from EE. So, let’s begin!

"Healing may take the form of words or medication or other modalities, and we can all strive for some happiness in life. We cannot be happy all the time - it is a fleeting emotion - but finding joy in simple things or a sense of meaning can assist."
