An Evening with… Renee Mcgregor and Kimberley Wilson
The term comfort eating is used liberally in today’s society and often carries negative connotations.
Join us online for an evening where we deep dive into the psychology and physiology of consuming comfort food.
We will look at where the term ‘comfort food’ originated and help understand how our responses and interpretations around comfort eating impact our relationships with food but also ourselves.
We will provide practical and informative strategies to help you manage your thoughts and practice around eating, removing guilt and regret.
Limited Spaces Available so book now to avoid disappointment. We will record the event and send the recording to anyone who purchases a ticket and wishes to have a copy.
Kimberley Wilson Bio:
I am a Chartered Psychologist, author and visiting lecturer working in private practice in central London. I am a Governor of the Tavistock & Portman NHS Mental Health Trust and the former Chair of the British Psychological Society’s Training Committee in Counselling Psychology – the group responsible for monitoring and assessing the standards of Counselling Psychology training across the UK. I formerly led the therapy service at HMP & YOI Holloway, which at the time was Europe’s largest women’s prison (closed summer 2016).
A former finalist on the Great British Bake Off, and an award-winning food producer with a degree in nutrition, my work looks at the role food and lifestyle plays in our mental health, including disordered eating, the gut-brain axis and our emotional relationship with food.
I am passionate about the power of psychology to transform lives and I’m committed to demystifying the theories and putting the information into the hands of the people who need it through social media, my Stronger Minds Podcast and live events, alongside consulting for international brands and regular appearances on expert panels.
My first book How to Build a Healthy Brain was published by Yellow Kite in March 2020.
The way we treat mental illness is changing. Join the revolution!
