Michelle Morand, will be a featured speaker at the Calgary Annual Health Show, March 18th, 2012 – 2:35 pm to 3:25 pm, presenting:

‘Sidestepping The Food – Emotion Power Struggle’

She explains the underlying reasons why we use food or restricting to cope, both from a chemical and psychological point of view, and provides steps to set your self up to have a stress free relationship with food.  The knowledge you gain is very empowering on many levels, particularly when you realize what is driving many negative coping strategies, not just your issues with food.

This talk is for anyone whose relationship with food is stressful and whose weight is not where they would like it to be.  Michelle shows you how to begin to have a healthy relationship with food and how to maintain a natural weight for your body, for life, without dieting and rigorous exercise regimes. You can’t be healthy, let alone happy and secure in your life if you are stuck focusing on what you ate and what you weigh. Join Michelle and learn why you struggle with food, what is really triggering the frustrating way you think and behave, and what steps to take to achieve long lasting change, create peace in your mind and feel more confident in your own skin

Venue: The Annual Calgary Health Show, Big Four – Hall A – Stampede Park.

Cost: Free once you pay the $5.00 admission for 1 day or $7.50 for both Sat. and Sun.  Children under 12 are free.

Transformative Intensive Weekend Workshops

Transformative Intensive Weekend Workshops

Come and join us for an intensive workshop where we teach you how to identify the route cause of why you use food or restricting food to cope with stress and tools to learn how to cope differently and adopt a new attitude towards the stressors in your life.  We cover issues that not only help you address your disordered eating, but many aspects of your life, including self-esteem, relationships, boundaries and an inner dialogue to help your ‘re-jig’ your thinking so you are facing these issues and more with a healthier, more empowered point of view. We employ 3 simple, yet life-altering tools that help remove the need to rely on food as the answer to the stress in your life. No matter where you live or how long you’ve been using food to cope, you can find your way to freedom, and it’s easier than you think!

Click Here to Read comments how past participants have benefited from this intensive 3-day event.

Also see some comments below:
——————————–

“I was able to get down to the core issues surrounding my distorted beliefs, which I didn’t feel were distorted until we picked apart some of the thought patterns that I had every single day.  I really believed my thoughts and views were not a key factor at all – but they are!  I really enjoyed that the eating issues were not the core focus; figuring out what part of our thoughts triggered the emotions to engage in a self-destructive patters were – and that is truly helpful.”

——————————–

“It was helpful to hear from other people dealing with food issues – it helped me to realize that many of our core issues are the same even though it may manifest itself in different ways.  It was good to start breaking down the overwhelming feeling of anxiety into more manageable pieces that don’t feel quite so daunting to face.  As hard it was t open up about painful issues with other people listening, I think it was a good jump start to being able to share more in the future.  Good venue – comfortable couches – nice to have snacks and lunch provided.”

——————————–

“First off I just want to say THANK YOU!  This weekend has been such an amazing and eye opening experience for me.  I really feel that I now have way better tools too deal with my feelings, anxieties and problems. You provided such a safe and loving environment that I felt okay expressing my feelings and showing my weaknesses.”

——————————–

“This weekend helped me identify the Drill Sargent and clarify the compassionate part that wants me to get my needs met. Tying in identifying my needs and Maslow’s Hierarchy was also helpful to refer back to – the structure of it was a concrete tool that was great. I liked the format – going into and doing the inner ‘Drill Sergeant Dialogue’ and List of Stressors and reviewing that – also was great to hear other participants’ comments – made the weekend dynamic and helped learning.”

——————————–

“I learned about ‘Drill Sergent’s’ messages that she sends/tells me.  I did not know that D.S. wanted best for me, except that D.S. has a very warped way of doing it.

I learned that i could use more practice in using non-violent words when I trying communicate with others.

I really got a sense of what ‘all or nothing thinking’ is and how it affects me.

I learned and want to learn more about co-dependence.

I learned that there is a light at the end of the tunnel for me, until this weekend I thought that this way of ‘living’ was going to be my destiny.

I learned new tools to help me in counselling and in my relationships with family.”
