About

Are you someone who knows how you want to eat but get stuck somewhere between what you want to put into your mouth and what you actually put into your mouth? Do you see your relationship to food as an emotional expression of what is going on inside of you? I support my clients in getting in touch with their physical hunger cues and then the emotional, spiritual hungers that arise as a result. I have been there. I've done retreats on my eating and my master's thesis on how we use our body to express internal struggles.
You were born with innate, intuitive hunger cues. If you eat when you are physically hungry, what your body wants, paying full and entitled attention to the experience of eating and stop the moment the hunger is goes, you always achieve your body's natural size.
It is that simple but sometimes not that easy. You eat (or not) for emotional reasons that become apparent when you stop using food to control your experience or soothe yourself. I use counselling with mindfulness to ground you in the experience of the moment to feel your unprocessed emotions.

Michelle Brewer's Groups

Mindful Meals

I offer facilitated and virtual mindful meals Tuesday nights. We start with brief meditation then a slow and mindful approach to our meal with the intention of aligning with our hunger and becoming aware of the blocks to doing so. There are regular pauses to allow sharing of each individual's experience. Coming together as a community brings people out of shame and isolation. I offer this through meetup.com. The link is below.

Daring and Sharing Weekly Call

I offer a weekly support and coaching call that runs as a book club. We read a chapter of a book related to emotional well-being and bring it back to our emotional relationship to food. It is a powerful place to share where you are in your journey and learn from other participants who join virtually from all over.
