Welcome to Weighty Issues




Welcome to Weighty Issues!

As you may know, we live in a culture which promotes a love/hate relationship with food, with our bodies and ultimately with ourselves. Therefore, we are left feeling out of control with our eating and with our lives. Joyce Sarat White, licensed professional counselor and founder of Weighty Issues, helps clients explore information, challenge beliefs and encourages the reframing of one's relationship to food, to their bodies and to themselves.

Using a holistic non-dieting, health at every size approach, issues addressed are: Do diets work? What is normal eating? How do I practice Mindful Eating? What beliefs influence my behavior? How do I develop a positive body image? How can I manage the stress in my life? How can I change my negative thinking? How can I deal with emotional eating/cravings? Why do I say "yes" when I mean "no"? Where is my "soul" self? How can I accept, nurture and love myself?

In an atmosphere that truly fosters self-understanding and self-caring, you will learn how to change your relationship with food, with your body and with yourself by discovering the personal choices that form the basis for a livable, peaceful and enjoyable approach to eating, exercise and dealing with the stresses of daily living. You will also learn new skills and strategies to help you stay motivated in caring for your health and well-being. "You are going to like yourself!"

Joyce has an impressive background in teaching, counseling, consulting and writing which spans more than thirty years. She provides individual counseling at her office in Yarmouth.  She has given innumerable presentations to schools, businesses, and universities and has been featured on WCSH6-TV. She is a contributing writer to several publications. Phone and webcam sessions are also provided in special circumstances.

This blog will provide you with the opportunity to receive support and education. The information is meant to complement, not substitute for professional services. On a weekly basis there will be new posts. In addition, once a month, a new post will coordinate with the topic previously discussed at the Weighty Matters Support Group. Therefore, it will be posted after the third Thursday of the month.

Thank you for visiting here and I hope it will become habit forming!
