Millions of Americans try to change their lifestyle unsuccessfully each year. Those who succeed are often unable to maintain their positive changes.
We all have clients like this. I have customized eating plans for clients only to have them return weeks later unable to implement the changes in their everyday lives.
Here’s the missing piece: It’s not that we’re bad practitioners or that don’t know what we’re doing. It’s not that we’re not walking the walk, or smart enough, or capable. We just haven’t been taught how to deal with emotional eating.
Let’s face it, we are taught not to honor our bodies at a very young age.
Did your parents tell you to clean your plate? Or make you continue to eat after you were already satisfied?
They weren’t bad parents; don’t get me wrong, they just didn’t know about intuitive eating.
If you are having difficulty getting your clients to implement, or you are caught up in the three-session slump and struggling to find ways to grow your nutritional therapy practice–this workshop is for you.
You will teach workshops designed to take your clients through The Six Phases of Lasting Change.
WEEK 1: This week is all about a 30-Day No Sugar Challenge, which takes your clients out of the cycle of food cravings and sugar addiction fast. You will teach them how to set their environment up for success and how to deal with an unsupportive partner.
WEEK 2: Teaches your clients how to tap into their inner resources. You’ll teach how to create an inner warrior, a no thank you phrase, and create a mantra. These strategies are designed to empower you and your clients and move you away from the belief that you can’t, to a place where you know you can.
WEEK 3: You will help your clients discover how they use food to meet their 6 emotional needs and find more fulfilling ways to meet those needs. This is where you begin to separate emotional hunger from physical hunger.
WEEK 4: You will teach how to separate physical hunger and emotional hunger even further through intuitive eating. You will discover your hunger signal, your satiation signal and how to enjoy food without guilt or shame.
WEEK 5: The 30-Day No Sugar Challenge ends, and you will guide your clients into the Good Decisions Lifestyle Guidelines. Because life is too short not to eat chocolate. 😉
WEEK 6: This week is all about how to deal with the things that may get in the way of your clients long-term success. You will learn how to deal with thoughts, beliefs, and emotions.
WEEK 7: Reinforces maintenance and you will get a glimpse of who you are beyond your thoughts, beliefs, and emotions. When you discover that you are already whole and complete, and so very beautiful, you no longer need to feed soothe or avoid anything. You learn how to be Finally Free and at peace with food and your body.
MONTHLY MAINTENANCE WORKSHOPS 1-10: After the initial 7 week series your client's have bonded with each other, shared deeply and will want to continue with you on their journey. These workshops transition you from teaching weekly workshops to teaching monthly workshops. You can continue to guide your clients through their entire journey for a whole year. That's right. A whole years worth of workshops that will give you income continuity while you touch, move and inspire!
ACCESS TO ALL FUTURE UPDATES: No matter how the workshop evolves or how it grows you will have unrestricted access to any and all updates. This ensures you continue to grow and evolve as the workshop evolves. It is most important to give you all the tools and resources you need to succeed.
INSTRUCTOR MANUALS: From your instructor dashboard you will have immediate access and be able to download the instructor manuals in both word and pdf formats. These walk you through teaching the workshops every step of the way. These are designed to facilitate growth and transformation.
PARTICIPANT WORKBOOKS: You will also be able to immediately download the participant workbooks, also designed to facilitate change. We consider you a sun, destined to shine and light 1000 more suns for global impact!
7 WEEKLY WORKSHOPS: You will receive 7 (1.5-2-hour) workshops to teach for the first 7 weeks. These are designed to empower your participants and help them discover who they are and how they use food to meet their emotional needs, and how to find more fulfilling alternatives. You will teach them how to eat intuitively and deal with obstacles that get in the way.
10 MONTHLY WORKSHOPS: Overcoming emotional eating and stepping into your best self is not a 7-week journey. It is one that can take months and sometimes years. These workshops are designed to keep your participants in maintenance long enough to leave old ways of being behind. The goal: To guide your participants away from the lie of not enough-ness to a place of self realization where they no longer need to feed soothe or avoid anything. These workshops can give you financial security while empowering you to take your participants on their entire journey. You will receive 17 (1.5-2 hour) workshops to teach in total.
WEEKLY ZOOM CALLS: Each week there is a two hour live Zoom call where I will teach you and the group how to teach the workshops. It will be like you are taking the workshop yourself. You will create your own stories from your experiences and then teach from your own unique perspective. These calls are very interactive and collaborative and you will have the opportunity to practice teaching. If you miss a call you will have access to the recording. There are 17 Zoom calls total. These cover the 7 weekly workshops and the 10 maintenance workshops. 2 Additional support calls each month are also available to help with marketing, coaching and other support as needed.
TIME REQUIRED: In addition to the 2 hour Zoom calls plan on setting aside a couple hours each week to prepare to teach your workshops.
FACEBOOK SUPPORT: You will have access to an Instructor Facebook group where you can engage with other instructors, ask questions, and post about your challenges and successes.
EMAIL SUPPORT: If you have a question and hesitate to post on Facebook you can email me directly. firstname.lastname@example.org I am a teacher and mentor first and foremost and your success is most important to me. Therefore I make myself available to you throughout the training.
RELATIONSHIP MARKETING: Not sure how to market and grow your practice? I owned a wellness center in Washington State for 25 years and will show you how to engage with the your local medical community and build relationships to fill your workshops and grow your practice.
COACHING THE COACH: Not quite sure how to take people out of emotional eating and into their best self? No problem. I’ve got you. You’ll learn how to be an effective coach, how to deal with a difficult participant, how to shine the light on negative thoughts, limiting beliefs, and breakdown the stories that limit us.
BRANDED MATERIALS: All of your instructor manuals, participant workbooks and anything that advertises Finally Free™ will have our branding on it as it was created by and copyrighted by Good Decisions®. Any of your flyers, business cards, testimonials, referral pads, or anything you create will have your branding on it. We would be co-branded. If you are not the branding type and want to assume the identity of a sun out to light 1000 other suns we have all the materials you need ready for you to just edit, print and go.
CO-CREATION AND COLLABORATION: I work in a collaborative fashion. You will have the opportunity to give feedback on what works and how the workshop can be improved. The course will be made better by your feedback and engagement.
ONLINE TEACHING OPPORTUNITIES: Yes, these workshops can be taught virtually. We are in the process of creating a gamification platform to teach this workshop online that other people can market and fill your workshops for you. Once this is tested and vetted you may be able to teach your participants online from anywhere in the world without having to worry about filling your workshops!
CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS: If you attend 80% of the live zoom calls, complete 80% of the quizzes, and meet all learning assessment requirements, you will receive a certification of completion for 25 CEU's from the Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA), and 30 CEU's from the National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP). You will earn the designation as a Finally Free Instructor.
