I help busy people exhausted by obsessive thoughts about food take control of eating and lose weight for good
Find Freedom from Binge Eating

It is exhausting constantly thinking about food.

It is frustrating knowing what you should do, but not being able to do it.

I regularly binged throughout my teens and twenties. I had no control. I felt alone and judged. I wanted to feel ‘normal’. I know what it is like to feel powerless over food.

I escaped binge eating, and I know how wonderful it feels to be free.

Find out how you can escape binge eating with 1:1 coaching.

About Dr Kirsten Keighley

I have 17 years’ experience, including as a Senior Scientist at the University of Cambridge Centre for Diet and Activity Research. I have helped thousands of people improve their diet, physical activity, wellbeing and to lose weight.

As an expert in health behaviour, I have appeared on BBC Breakfast and have consulted for TV programmes including Easy Ways to Live Well with Steph McGovern and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on BBC1.

As an overweight child and someone who emotionally ate and yo-yo dieted through my teens and twenties, I know that eating issues are complicated and can't be fixed with normal diets. I developed a unique 6-step system which finds and heals the hidden causes of eating issues. By retraining your mind, it is possible to have a healthy relationship with food and be free from constant thoughts about eating. I know how wonderful it feels to be free from obsession with food. I can help you to escape too.

Everyone has different causes of their eating issues and weight struggles. In 1:1 online sessions, I combine behaviour change science, coaching, psychology and counselling skills to help you find and tackle the hidden triggers of your weight-related issues so you can escape from yo-yo dieting and find freedom from emotional eating.

How to Stop Binge and Emotional Eating
The mind is powerful and although our mind controls us, we can also control our mind. If you keep telling yourself you can't stop bingeing, then that is what your mind thinks, it can be a self-fulfilling prophecy. To stop bingeing, you need to realise that you can do it. It sounds simple but often it is not.
