Change your attitude,
change your health
The Breaters Program is based on the basic concept when we suffer a distressed relationship with our body and self-image, and food, cannot be healed through diets and dieting but rather by shifting our attention with compassion and kindness towards to the root cause of the distress, like emotional overwhelm.
The main tool we promote is the practice of Mindful Eating, which promotes our ability to develop our innate qualities and with the daily support of the Breaters professionals, cultivate personal skills and resources without resorting to external misconceptions such as diets or weight control.
The relationship between food and emotions
We are convinced that it is not possible to re-establish a healthy and balanced relationship with food without first widening the space of tolerance towards difficult emotions (anxiety, stress, fear, frustration, sense of inadequacy, etc.) which we then often use food to cope with.
When we develop self-compassion and insight it can lead us to a profound and lasting change in our relationship with food. It give us specific and practical tools to be used in the here and now of our relationship with food and eating.
How will we support you?
We will work together on recognising the emotions that are at the root of emotional hunger to help you repair your relationship with food.
Through practical exercises you will learn how to eat mindfully and how to separate food from the emotions that drive you to eat compulsively.
Once you have identified the emotions that trigger your bingeing, we will together build new ways to respond to these impulses.
Breaters is a programme that helps you to develop attention and presence in a wise, healthy and non judgmental way.
For us, we recognise and want to honour your full capacity for change, which with our help and constant support, you can implement moment by moment.
How does the programme work?
Breaters supports people on a daily basis to recognise and integrate those difficult emotions that hamper self-regulation and drive emotional eating, thanks to the methods based on the principles of Mindfulness and through 4 fundamental pillars:
The Daily Support
You will receive daily videos and text content (approx. 5 min) to support, motivate and educate you, as you are changing your attitude and relationship with food, eating and your body.
With some fundamental mindfulness practices you will have better ability to navigate life stressors.
Countless scientific studies from the world's most prestigious universities accredit the meditative practice as effective in reducing stress and deactivating harmful habits.
You will have a dedicated coach to guide you via chat to co-create the best journey for you. All of the Breaters professionals also have their own personal experiences of having been through similar struggles with food, eating and body image.
The online community is there to support one other and to deepen the tools of the program. Scientific research applied to eating disorders has shown that combining individual work with group meetings makes it more effective to build a new attitude towards food and towards oneself. The online group meetings that the course offers are geared towards creating connections between members and a space for exchange, sharing and mutual understanding that can support us in changing and healing.
