Mindful Eating Institute is a Santa Barbara, California weight loss management and emotional self-care counseling service that helps clients develop a healthy relationship with food and their body. Founded in 2017 by Petra Beumer, the comprehensive treatment program provides customized strategies, which aim at producing long-term weight management results. Clients learn to gently let go of using food as a mood regulator and practice tuning into to their physical and emotional needs.
At Mindful Eating, clients explore the triggers that lead to emotional eating and develop the tools, strategies and rituals for establishing a healthy relationship with food over time. They gain an understanding of how to free themselves from this cycle and how to transform mind (and body) along the way. The program represents a comprehensive, in-depth non-diet approach, which aims at producing lifelong results.
End the familiar pattern of worrying about calories and dieting and gain a new understanding of the 'true' need for comfort and relief. Receive tools for practicing good emotional self-care and incorporate new healthy rituals in your everyday life.
Mindful Eating's mission is threefold: To teach clients how to achieve their goals, guide them toward a new and maintainable lifestyle, and ultimately enjoy peace with food and their body.

"Working with Petra has been a powerful and healing experience. I started this program hoping to lose weight and to put an end to years of yo-yo dieting and eating for comfort. What I really needed to learn is how to practice good self-care –that this is the key to a healthy relationship with food. With Petra’s guidance I’ve put together a toolbox of self-care tools and rituals that I can use to manage my emotions, and not to turn to food to soothe uncomfortable feelings."
