The CEDRIC Centre’s specialized program helps people of all ages to lose or gain weight and to maintain a natural weight for their bodies, for life without diet and rigorous exercise regimes. We teach you how to establish a healthy relationship with food, yourself and others, how to deal with stress, anxiety and depression in ways that boost self-esteem and allow you to feel more secure as you focus less on what you eat and weigh. See intro video for the CEDRIC Centre Mindful Eating Info Package.
The CEDRIC team provides counselling in person in British Columbia, Canada, as well via skype and phone worldwide. We offer 3-day Workshops, Hard Copy and Downloadable Resources sold separately or accessed through our Online Program and incude: CD’s; DVD’s; Workbooks; Teleclasses, Lessons, Assignments, a book entiled, ‘Food Is Not The Problem – Deal With What Is’ by CEDRIC Founder and Director Michelle Morand, MA, RCC and more!
CEDRIC clients learn everything they need to know about why they struggle with food, what is really triggering the frustrating way they think and behave, and what they can do to achieve lasting change when it comes to food, their approach to relationships, self-esteem, and other areas of their life. Examining the core reasons why we use any less than healthy coping strategies and learning how to deal with stress in a way that is healthy and empowering, not only solves the longstanding issue people have with food, but also addresses the underlying triggers to create true comfort and peace with all aspects of life.
We offer in-person counselling in British Columbia in the following cities: Vancouver, Sechelt, Victoria, Kelowna and Whistler. All our counsellors have Master’s Degrees and sessions are $150.00 an hour. If you are interested in having a Personalized Healing Plan created for you, contact Michelle for an assessment of your needs. The plans often combine individual sessions, with a workshop and online program membership for extra support.
If you live outside our area, we have achieved results equal to our in-person therapy using internet and phone counselling for over 10 years.

These 3 different 21 hour events are very effective in providing the education and tools to achieve a healthy relationship with food and body image, and help heal many other issues in the process.

They each cost $636.00 plus tax, and we offer payments plans.
