“I no longer see food as a means of escaping myself because now, amazingly, I actually like myself. I thought I ate too much because I was greedy, but you showed me that it was because my self-esteem was on the floor.”
Lilly, Mother of two
Our Problem Eating services:
Led by an Accredited Therapist using up-to-date ideas, knowledge and techniques from psychology and neuroscience, we have different options to suit your needs and situation:
- No ‘One-Size-Fits-All’ approach – we support you by developing an approach that helps you to overcome bad eating habits in a way that works for you. You will be surprised to find just what you are capable of. You will be shown useful ways to create more positive eating habits and the self-belief to make lasting changes.
- One to one sessions – you will be supported, understood and accepted for who you are. You won’t be judged or labelled – don’t feel embarrassed or guilty about your eating habits. We will help you to understand the reasons behind your problematic eating habits and how to overcome them. Together, we will have a different type of conversation about food.
- Courses – run at weekends to give you the time and space to work through the challenges and difficulties you face with food. Our philosophy is to give you the knowledge and ideas to help you understand your issues and gain control. Find out more…
Our problem eating services are for people with mild-to-moderate eating problems; while these bad eating habits may not be completely ruining their lives, they are nevertheless making them unhappy and life less enjoyable. If you discover that your problems require Counselling and Therapy or Life Coaching, we can provide these services too

Disclaimer: At CWI, we make a distinction between mild-to-moderate problem eating and eating disorders. If you have a diagnosed – or suspected undiagnosed – eating disorder such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia or Binge Eating Disorder, CWI recommends seeking specialist support. Your GP will be an initial source of information for accessing specialist help, but the excellent eating disorders charity ‘b-eat‘ can also provide information and support. Their website is www.b-eat.co.uk
Nutrition and dietary advice: Our problem eating services are designed for people who already know what is or is not the right food to eat – there is plenty of information on healthy eating out there already. We help people who want to know HOW to eat differently. And because our focus at CWI is on how people eat rather than what they eat, we leave the dietary and nutritional advice to those with the qualifications to provide it. If in doubt, start by contacting your local GP.
