Working with Emotional Obesity
The Present – What’s currently happening around food?
During the first session I ask and listen carefully to the client’s responses to the following sort of open questions. The more emotionally articulate a client is, the less necessary it is to ask direct questions. These prompts are especially useful with clients who are dissociated, or are strongly blocked about their food issues and the originating, emotional drivers to their over-eating or self-sabotaging behaviour.
Initially with my open questions I am attempting to get a sense of my client’s relationship with food. This includes how focussed a client really is when he or she eats food, or is it something that happens in a ‘zoned’ out way. Also, I want to know how much pleasure and effort is made in the preparing and eating of food; And also to explore the dynamic of who feeds and who eats?
