I work with clients who are struggling with their weight. Typically, they have tried every diet under the sun with either short-term success or no success. People assume their doing something wrong, are predisposed to being a certain weight, are a failure, and ultimately just give up. I too have been on this unpleasant journey and despite dieting, starving myself, exercising, and using weight loss supplements,
I was close to throwing in the towel. Nothing worked. Through ACT, I realized my attempts at weight loss failed because of how I thought about food, and I was not
considering my values…a critical component of ACT. My method for working with people who have been on this roller-coaster is using acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), specifically based on the book, The Diet
Trap by Jason Lillis and JoAnne Dahl. I will provide you the tools you need to not only lose weight, but more importantly, develop better eating habits self-compassion, and create a more value-driven, fulfilling life.
