Welcome to The CEDRIC Centre
Successful Online and In Person Support for your stressful relationship with food: Creating change that lasts.
Frustrated, anxious, depressed, ashamed, guilty, insecure…these are common feelings that our clients at The CEDRIC Centre express when they share about how they feel about their behaviour with food, and their subsequent frustrations with their weight. “After all,” they’ll say, “what sort of person can’t even control their own food!’
Well, in reality, most people in North America struggle to some extent with the use of food to cope with stress and a preoccupation with weight loss and appearance at any cost. In fact, the statistics show that:
- 1 in 3 women have been on more than 10 diets in their lives;
- The average woman can stick to a diet for only 2 weeks at a time;
- Only 9% of women never diet!
No wonder women and, increasingly, men think it is normal to focus on food and restriction!
If you are tired of the amount of time and energy that you spend focusing on food and weight loss we will help you to quickly understand what is really preventing you from being successful and walk you through the simple steps to change it forever.
We provide skilled, professional, and most importantly, successful education and support to men and women throughout the world (via phone, skype, IM, our amazing on line program, or other technology) or in person in our Victoria, Vancouver, and Kelowna, B.C. offices or at our live training events throughout North America.
Right now you’re likely feeling quite stuck and maybe even a bit scared that you’ll never get a handle on your binging or restricting or all the thoughts that swirl, like a whirlwind, in your mind, 24/7 about what you did wrong and what’s wrong with you and what you need to change about yourself in order to be happy.
Let me reassure you. You’ve come to the right place. We are the experts at helping you get unstuck and to quickly feel confident and secure that you can have a normal relationship with food again. We’ll show you how. All you have to do is reach out and we’ll walk you through the rest.
Whether you overeat, restrict, use alcohol or drugs, engage in retail therapy, get stuck in cycles of anxiety and procrastination, or struggle with eating disorders such as binge eating, anorexia, bulimia or orthorexia, the simple truth is you have somehow developed a confused response to stress.
However you label your coping strategy (binging, dieting, drinking etc.), the fact is that this problem did not originate with food etc., nor can it be solved by focusing on food, body image, alcohol etc. This is why, no matter how much effort you’ve put in to dieting and watching what you eat and maybe even exercising intensively too, you haven’t really found the peace and self-confidence and satisfaction that you have been looking for.
You need to look a little deeper and for that you need a guide; someone who can quickly show you what’s really going on and get straight to work teaching you the simple skills you need to find true peace and self-confidence and complete and lasting freedom from any grip that food (or any other harmful coping strategy) has on you.
Through the support and education you’ll receive at The CEDRIC Centre, you will:
- Be free of the 24/7 thoughts of food and body image.
- Trust yourself around any food in any quantity.
- Comfortably and easily eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full. No stress, no guilt. End of story.
- Be the very best that you can be in all ways.
- Have relationships that feel peaceful and balanced and that bring you joy.
Your relationship with food and with your body, and even with the key people in your life, truly can be free and easy and so very fulfilling. The solution is quite simple.
Over the past 20 years, I have developed a simple and effective set of tools for shifting your harmful thoughts, feelings and behaviours and a step by step process for implementing those changes and making sure they stick.
The CEDRIC Centre program has been specifically created to support you to get quickly to the root of what’s really driving your frustrating relationship with food. We help you learn simple tools that you can use easily to resolve those old triggers and to resolve any present day or future stress that may arise.
And when you have removed the root of your stress you don’t even think to binge or restrict or drink or isolate to numb and soothe yourself. You just don’t need to because you now trust yourself to handle life and you don’t need to protect yourself any longer from stressful people or stressful situations.
Men and women worldwide have experienced lasting change in their relationships with food, with their bodies and with the key people in their lives through The CEDRIC Centre’s unique program. You can too.
You can work with us in any of the following ways:
And if you’d like to explore tools and education on your own take a look at our Awesome Self-Help Resources. We have books, cd’s, videos, workbooks, and pre-recorded teleclasses for you to learn from.
The fact that you’re here, at our site, very likely means that you are open to exploring options for support and healing. It means that you’re ready to have a truly peaceful and easy relationship with food, with your body and with the people in your life. It also means that you know that you need some new tools and some support to be able to make those changes. That’s where we come in.
Just stop for one moment, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:
- What will it be like when I have a truly peaceful and easy relationship with food?
- What will it be like to feel truly satisfied with my body and that I am truly the best that I can be in all ways?
Imagine the peace of mind.
Imagine the absence of that constant inner chatter and that low grade sense of distress and disease.
Imagine truly trusting yourself to be around any food, any time to the point where you just don’t even think about it!
