Let Me Help You Create a Weight Management Plan for Life
Mindful Eating Institute is a Santa Barbara/California mindful eating, weight loss and self-care counseling service that helps clients free themselves from restrictive dieting and develop a healthy and relaxed relationship with food and their body. Founded in 2017 by Petra Beumer, the comprehensive treatment program provides customized strategies, which aim at creating a lighter existence - both physically and emotionally. Clients practice letting go of using food as a mood regulator and practice tuning into their physical and emotional needs. What they learn during the program, they cannot unlearn. Once their inner "self-love"reservoir gets fuller and fuller, the need to cope by "eating instead of feeling" diminishes over time.
At Mindful Eating Institute, clients explore the triggers that lead to emotional eating and develop the tools, weight loss strategies and rituals for establishing a healthy relationship with food and their body over time. They gain an understanding of how to free themselves from the emotional eating cycle cycle. The innovative program represents a comprehensive, in-depth non-diet approach, which aims at producing lifelong weight management results.
The therapeutic goal is to end the familiar pattern of worrying about calories and dieting, and to gain a new understanding of the true underlying need for comfort and relief. Clients are gently guided to practice good emotional self-care and incorporate new healthy self-nurturing rituals in their everyday life.
Petra's prescription for wellness is: To love yourself deeply, to stand in your own light, to have healthy boundaries and to be YOU - unapologetically.
"It's not just about losing weight. It's about creating a lighter existence."
