In this clip my client describes a common obstacle, which is having a way of eating that's perfect and seems ideal, but in fact is far too rigid to maintain in the long term.
This by no means the only eating pattern addressed in this course, but for those with this "all or nothing" style - often resulting from years of dieting - it's exciting to find a realistic and sustainable solution.

I've tried a great many things to get control of this area of my life. I went to a nutritionist, quite a few Overeaters Anonymous meetings, I’ve done the local slimming clubs. I was in therapy for two years, and that wasn’t just about eating but was part of it.
This program with Gillian is completely different and I knew that from the start, so thought it was worth a try, even though I didn’t feel confident in it (or in me).
The results have been amazing, as far as food is concerned I feel like I’ve got a completely different attitude. Something has clicked and things have changed for me, big time, and in a way that feels very real.
Coming into this course I knew it was a brand new approach for me, something I have never tried before. I think I was pre-programmed before by the other approaches I was involved with and so it’s taken quite a bit of work to shift my automatic response of following rules, breaking them, and then being terrified that I was powerless.
I feel great appreciation for Gillian and her work. I have been searching for the answers to my overeating issues for a very long time! I feel like I am just now really starting to grasp the information and put it into place. I am feeling much more in control and at peace.
Thank you so much. I’m very glad that I have the rest of the year to go over this content again and to ask any questions that may arise in the future.
It seems like it’s a real re-programming process. I appreciate how responsive Gillian is to people’s questions and how she is looking for the very best way to help the students really grasp the material.
These webinars certainly exceeded every one of my expectations. It was invaluable to have Gillian bring it all off the page and link it all together and answer individual questions. I love that you don't have to root out all your childhood hurts, you can tackle addictive overeating head on by seeing it for what it is.
As for the presentation, I found Gillian very warm, welcoming and encouraging. She took everyone's problems very seriously. All I can say is, please carry on doing exactly what you are doing!
There is a lot of content to cover…therefore I found the pace of the webinar course perfect as there is a week in between to process the information and take it step by step.
Questions were handled swiftly on the forum and answered without judgment. Invaluable to hear others expressing the same thing that I was struggling with and how they may have found a solution. I don’t think it could be improved, and I’m so glad it was not a zoom webinar.
The opportunity to listen again to the webinars has been a great help to me. I have found myself replaying the content whilst driving or gardening. For me , it’s the way I learn. It's the only thing that makes sense and works. I really do think and feel that this course has changed my perspective on the subject-matter, and changed my life for the better. That was more than I ever dared to hope when I signed up.
Gillian's overarching vision of the programme and the lucid way she's broken it down into its components—is unique. I haven’t come across anything like it anywhere else. And I believe that what she teaches is, truly, the only way to deal with overeating.
Gillian engaged with all of us very directly in the webinars, was sympathetic, realistic, an absolute mine of valuable information and insights, and challenging when necessary. She never tried to dodge questions, and was keen to clarify that the questioner’s concern had been dealt with. I noticed the same thing on the Forum too: Gillian is great at analysing and identifying the real issue being raised, and dealing with each one clearly, honestly and with understanding. Ace!
A rich treasure-trove to revisit when I need recharging. A massive THANK YOU to you, Gillian, for this course, for your compassionate wisdom, and for all your care and for giving us such outstanding support both during the course and in an ongoing way. It’s a privilege to have been able to take part. My only regret is I didn’t do it sooner.
I've been familiar with Gillian's work for a while, but was never able to put it all together until this webinar. I loved receiving it all in chunks, which allowed me to process, review and apply new information each week.
Gillian did an excellent job presenting and answering questions via the chat. The pace was perfect, the information comprehensive. I appreciate Gillian's knowledge and references to research. She has a very special way of presenting unfamiliar information in an easy to understand format.
I've always wanted to be at peace with food and eating. This webinar has changed my life! I have been challenged with weight issues for four decades and believed I would be in this struggle all my life. Not so! What a gift! Thanks Gillian!! Thanks for putting this webinar together! And it is very affordable!
I have been amazed at this course. I have been dieting on and off all my adult life and most of my teen years too. And I was heavier at 50 than I’d ever been. Twice I achieved “Gold Weight” at WW and of course put it all back on and then some more.
I always had this view that some day “I’d get my act together” and all the pieces would magically fall into place. This course has changed things for me. It’s the first sensible approach I’ve ever found and o-my-days, I’ve done some looking over the years.
It is not easy but I’m convinced this is the path to take. Thank you so very much for all the research you’ve done, all the papers you’ve read; this scientific approach is unlike anything I’ve come across before.
The forum is a brilliant idea too as I know there are other people walking the walk with me. I enjoy reading their comments and ideas.
