Thought for Food

Synopsis
Jan Gray argues that without considering the role that food plays in a person’s life such an approach is likely at best to fail and at worst to cause psychological harm. She offers a unique insight into an approach which doesn’t consider that the client is at fault, but rather, as a result of a series of life events, has developed a way of thinking about food which leaves them deeply vulnerable. As a consequence the initial focus of the work needs to be the thought processes rather than the calories.

This programme consist of three full length counselling sessions and a studio discussion, with chapter markers at five minute intervals.
