Food Psychology for Mind and Body Certification

Food Psychology for Mind and Body

This course is designed to help you better understand your relationship to food and eating, mind and body. The course offers a mixture of theory around the psychology of eating, nutritional principles and practical tips on how to establish and sustain a healthy mindset around food and your body. It is not a diet or a meal plan.

It will guide you through a deeper understanding of your identity as an eater, as well as outline how to harness this insight, in order to create a compassionate, intuitive, healthy and freeing relationship with food, which will support your holistic wellbeing and sense of self.

Please note that the course is intended for educational purposes only: it is not a form of therapy. If you feel that you need therapeutic support for disordered eating, the course provides guidance on where to seek it.

You will Learn:

  • An introduction to food psychology: the factors that underlie the what, how, why and when of our eating behaviours
  • How to recognize your own food behaviors and mindset around eating through self-awareness
  • How to make holistically healthier choices, based on intuitive, embodied insight into what wholesomely feeds and fuels your life
  • How to cultivate a mindset of self-love around food and your body
  • How diet culture has been unhealthily normalised in our society, and how we can healthily reject its influence on our eating psychology
  • How intuitive eating as a practice can help you navigate a new, healthy and balanced relationship to food, as well as to life
  • How your relationship to food and body is a mirror to your relationship with life
  • How to get help if you feel you are struggling with disordered eating

Benefits of Taking This Course:

  • Gain greater understanding of how you think, feel and behave around food
  • Learn how to make your relationship with food more conscious and more aligned with healthy principles
  • Foster an intuitive relationship with food and your body — one that is driven by what feels balanced, nourishing and satisfying at an embodied level
  • Gain autonomy from diet culture and diet mentality
  • Gain insight into where your relationship with food and your body reflects other possible areas of growth in your life, and step into those with newfound confidence

  • What the intuitive eater type looks like, embodied in a day-to-day way, and how to cultivate and maintain the habits that support intuitive eating for yourself
  • Tips and exercises to help you tune into your body, alongside healthy new beliefs to cultivate, to replace those that we may have unconsciously internalised from diet culture
  • The importance of listening to your own body and signals
  • How to consolidate the understanding that our relationship with food and our bodies serves as a mirror to our relationship with life and, therefore, that healing aspects of our food psychology can also lead to healing in other areas of our lives
  • How to explore the kind of self-growth that opens up for both mind and body, as a result of working on improving our food psychology
  • How to maintain intuitive eating and self-awareness habits, as well as optional prompts for further growth and reflection

I really enjoyed the course and would recommend this to my friends.

I completed a City and Guilds Certificate 40 years ago and was looking at bringing my skills up to date. This gave me the encouragement and insight to what I needed to go back into hairdressing. I understand the importance of keeping my skills up to date and would like to study further in styling, hair treatment and colouring.

Thank you very much I enjoyed the 27 modules attached to the course. I particularly enjoyed the videos attached to the course and have always enjoyed putting hair up for special occasions such as weddings.

I must honestly say that this course website is a great help for learning new information on previous courses as I did a Premiere Animal Care 1 year course.

Ever since my mum introduced me to this website and got me on the "Dog Grooming Diploma" course through New Skills , we also came across many other great courses and offers and not only did I learn new skills, techniques and information while working on my modules my previous knowledge on dog care expanded tremendously!

I would definitely recommend this website to friends and family to help them gain skills, experience and knowledge on whatever job they are hoping to get with the qualifications from their chosen course.

Parmjit Uppal

It was great, lots of knowledge and able to learn at my own pace was fantastic, and that I have access to it after completing exam is great too!

I am excited to start further learning and will likely try another course provided from this website! Exam was easy and straight forward, and provided you with the questions you did not get correct so that you are able to further study.

I have recommended this site to friends and family, and will continue learning! Thank you so much New Skills Academy! You are an amazing site and I am grateful!

Brilliant course. As a busy ,working mum this course gave a chance to change my career but it also gave me a chance to study in my own free time. Very easy wording, education videos, important information you can't find online. The brilliant thing is that even after finishing the course you still can go back to your modules and view the videos again. The help from assistants is great. The minute I contacted them with question they always responded very quickly and professionally.

The course was very easy to navigate and very informative. I have gained so much information from this course - it is amazing to know I have learnt so much from this and it is even better that you can do it in your own time and no one pushing you.
