Description

Shelley Treacher, BACP Accredited Psychotherapist, gives "short, inspirational gems of wisdom". Shelley helps you to understand being human, and the stress or emotion that makes you reach for comfort. She talks mainly about comfort eating and toxic relationship, but this also applies to other compulsions, and what makes us all human. This podcast is about ditching the bad habits, and finding your own inner strength; your 'underground' confidence.

One reason for overeating at Christmas is that we need to let go. Understanding that you might be comfort eating to let go, is, as I often say, treating the cause rather than the symptom of overeating. Productivity can be another addiction, that typically goes hand in hand with comfort eating. So, today, I talk about Christmas overeating and how to recognise and wind down from being over productive. Because so many of us feel we need to push through, when really we need to stop.Want to go further?Join my mailing list hereHow To Stop Comfort Eating 6 Week Workshop Calling In 'The One' 8 Week Programme, for finding love For more support:Contact: shelley_treacher@hotmail.comInfo: www.bristolcounselling.co.ukBlog:  Free quick tips and quiz: Are you a comfort eater?Click here for 'Comfort Eating Recovery' Facebook groupClick here for 'Love and Relationship Recovery' Facebook groupHere's another podcast you might like: Covid-19 Christmas - Loneliness, Conflict and Comfort EatingIf you like this podcast, please share it or leave a review on Apple Podcasts!
Since lockdown began, the jokes about overeating have been coming thick and fast on social media. Having overcome chronic comfort eating myself, I help people to stop. But I must admit, even I’ve struggled more than usual during the pandemic.It may be that you’ve tried every diet or technique on the planet and still can’t stop yourself from eating. You may have become so frustrated and sick of yourself that you’re desperate for another solution.That solution is to treat the cause of overeating, rather than the symptom.You may realise that it’s emotional discomfort that causes your comfort eating. Or, you might be baffled by how your overeating habits or binge-eating could be caused by emotion. Maybe you’re thinking:“it’s just a habit” or, ‘’I Just like food!”But, you want to change things. So, it’s time to go a little deeper.The first step towards treating yourself better is to identify whether it is emotion causing you to eat. So, here are some ways to find out.Want to go further?Join my mailing list hereHow To Stop Comfort Eating 6 Week Workshop Calling In 'The One' 8 Week Programme, for finding love For more support:Contact: shelley_treacher@hotmail.comInfo: www.bristolcounselling.co.ukBlog:  Free quick tips and quiz: Are you a comfort eater?Click here for 'Comfort Eating Recovery' Facebook groupClick here for 'Love and Relationship Recovery' Facebook groupHere's another podcast you might like: Why You Comfort Eat - Overeating ExplainedIf you like this podcast, please share it or leave a review on Apple Podcasts!

We’ve been challenged like never before in being alone or with the same people every day. But, we need other people, to feel OK in everyday life, and to heal.During Covid-19, we may have become very self-reliant, and we may have shut down to some extent, at the same time as craving good contact and connection.It would be natural to be struggling and awkward with social contact now. It’s possible that some of us have developed social anxiety after being isolated from others for so long. As such, we may have a natural inclination to stay indoors.In this podcast, I'll talk about how you can understand this, and start to recover.Want to go further?Join my mailing list hereHow To Stop Comfort Eating 6 Week Workshop (limited places)For more support:Contact: shelley_treacher@hotmail.comInfo: www.bristolcounselling.co.ukBlog:  Free quick tips and quiz: Are you a comfort eater?Click here for 'Comfort Eating Recovery' Facebook groupClick here for 'Love and Relationship Recovery' Facebook groupCitationsThis week, my citations are from my own media mentions.

As we find ourselves recovering from COVID-19, we may still be coming to terms with the impact the virus has had, on both our bodies and minds. None of us has escaped its effects.

We responded to a very real threat by going into survival mode. But where are we now?In this podcast, I talk about how the pandemic may have affected our nervous systems, the effect of vicarious trauma, and the triggering you may have experienced.Any of these experiences may lead to comfort eating, or using substances to regulate how we feel.
