A Personal Hello From Dr Jen
Hi there! I’m dedicated to communicating the message that for many who struggle to ‘eat less and move more’, the struggle is NOT about food.
Food Psychology gets to the root cause of issues with over-eating and over-weight.
It is based on the principle that eating extra food and carrying extra weight is serving a function or purpose. Once this function is uncovered, true and lasting change can occur.
I’m a Clinical Psychologist, international speaker and the author of three, 5* Amazon rated books. I’ve been named an ‘Outstanding Educator’ and a ‘World Diabetes Day Hero’ for my work in the health and wellbeing field.
Born in London, UK, I developed diabetes in childhood and struggled for many years with what I now call ‘non-hunger eating’. Whether it was sadness, happiness, reward or celebration – food was my best friend. It was my guilty, shameful secret, and I thought I was the only person in the world who struggled with these issues. I tried to apply the usual ‘eat-less, move-more’ strategies to my problem, but what I didn’t know then that I know now, is that food wasn’t the real problem. I was using food to solve problems it just wasn’t designed to fix.
Working with a lot of therapists, I found freedom from my issues and developed a burning desire to support others with these struggles.
I trained as a Clinical Psychologist in London before having a successful career in the UK National Health Service. I have held numerous strategic advisory roles and have spoken to audiences of hundreds in the US, Canada and Europe about the importance of addressing the psychological impact of diabetes/obesity.
Through The Food Psychology Academy, I am dedicated to inspiring individuals and professionals with step-by-step trainings to reveal the story that struggles with over-eating and over-weight are telling.
Uncover that story and individuals gain freedom from the shame and guilt about their weight, and can finally step into joyful weight loss for body (and life) transformation.
If you’re looking for practical, step-by-step tools, in an inspiring, warm and encouraging community, join me and say hi!
You’ll be joining a community that is making a difference. Obesity and hunger are two of the biggest problems facing our world today. My goal is to not only help you create a body and life you love, but also to support the 20 million people on the brink of starvation in our world of food abundance. I’ve pledged to give 10% of profits to fighting hunger, so when you join The Food Psychology Academy community, you can feel inspired about the ripple effect you are creating.
For that reason and more, it’s my honour to support you, and I’m so glad we’ve found each other!
