What other Psychologists are saying about Heidi’s Mindful Eating Workshops
I attended a 1-day workshop with Dr Heidi Douglass in October 2014, introducing us (providers and public) to Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness Treatment. Dr Douglass has a lovely calm manner and “practiced what she preached’’ leading us in a day of mindfulness and eating awareness. I work with clients with eating disorders, and see benefits of this programme for people with disordered eating. The skills they would learn in this non-threatening environment could be very effective on their journey towards change.” Lynne Blake, Consultant Clinical Psychologist. Hamilton, NZ.
“Heidi established a warm and inviting setting for the workshop. She moved through the workshop at a pace that allowed one to absorb and consider the information. The content of the workshop had a good balance between presenting the empirical information and real life events. The experiential exercises were fantastic and provided a sample of how mindfulness and mindful eating would be beneficial for myself and the clients I work with in my practice.” Vanessa Burrett, MSocSci, DipPsych(Clin), MNZPsS
Registered Clinical Psychologist, Hamilton, NZ.
“I have attended Dr Douglass’s workshop. The workshop was well organised, the content was relevant and linked to the everyday challenges I face. Dr Douglass used structured guided meditations. I recommend this professional workshop for those managing their relationship with food.” Andrea Cullen, PhD│Registered Clinical Psychologist│Te Kohao Health
