A action-packed, one day workshop that shows you how to develop and promote positive health behaviour and vitality.
this workshop is for both the public and practitioners
Our workshops are designed for both the public and practitioners.
No advanced knowledge of diet , biology, or psychology is needed
Learn how to improve your health and vitality, utilizing cutting-edge psychology
The Weight Escape and Weight Escape Practitioner workshops are now combined into a single course and delivered in two stages.
Stage 1: During the day long workshop, you will learn to increase your own positive health behaviors, whether that be focused on losing weight or some other health goal. This step will be of most relevance to the public and also to practitioners who wish to see how the Weight Escape is administered.
Stage 2: After the workshop, you will receive an 8 week ecourse, along with other support materials that will help you to promote positive health behaviors in others. This step will help practitioners consolidate what they learned in step 1. It will also be of interest to members of the public, who wish to deepen their understanding of the science behind Weight Escape.
(Important note: Weight escape workshops are educational, and are not intended as therapy. This course attracts professional development points for a variety of disciplines. For example, it attracts six CPD points in Psychology and Dietetics, and 5 CEC points for Personal Trainers. )
Have you or your clients tried again and again to lose weight? The pills, the diets, the meal replacements; positive thinking, exercise machines and gruelling workouts? Have you succeeded for a short time, only to find that you put the weight right back on? Are you tired of beating yourself up about your body? Are you tired of making your life so much about weight loss? If so, this workshop is for you.
The ‘Weight Escape’ workshop is a unique, powerful, one-day program for well-being and weight loss. And unlike all the other weight loss approaches out there, we have good scientific evidence that our program works
The ‘Weight Escape’ workshop will reveal the problems with most popular weight loss programs. And it will shatter many popular myths, such as in order to lose weight you need to think positively, or count every calorie. It will show you why fad diets inevitably fail in the long term, and why even the most sensible of diets can easily backfire if you approach it in the wrong mindset. And most importantly of all, you’ll discover what you can do to create a richer, fuller life - right here, right now – instead of waiting until the day you’ve reached your ideal weight or body size.
We show you how to apply Weightescape principles to others by learning how to apply them to yourselves. You will learn:
There will also be ongoing support available, in the weeks and months following the workshop (see right panel for details). And it only costs $260! Compare that to other approaches that charge you hundreds if not thousands of dollars for programs that have no scientific research to prove they work!
Note: Lunch is not included, but there are plenty of nearby cafes - or you could bring a packed lunch!
