Weight Loss and Emotional Eating Coaching
Makes the Difference Between Success and Failure!
If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then I have the solution!
I'm Catherine L. Taylor, a weight loss/life coach, emotional eating expert, and meditation teacher. I have 29 years of recovery from compulsive overeating and binge eating disorder and have successfully maintained my weight during that time.
My work is to help you get off the dieting roller coaster, so that you may break free of your emotional eating patterns. I help you find new ways of being in the world that support your spiritual, mental, emotional and physical health. I teach you how to live and eat in a way that will help you achieve and sustain permanent weight loss.
Emotional eating is the number one cause of obesity. Emotional eating is any eating that is done to avoid, numb, or regulate uncomfortable feelings, stress, and even happiness. It is the number one reason why weight loss diet and exercise programs fail.
I have found that people who struggle with food and emotional eating are released from that prison once they learn the skills of mindful awareness and mindful eating, sometimes called intuitive eating, emotional self-nurturing amd self-care; learn how to release release self-defeating thinking patterns; and learn how to set realistic limits and goals.
This turns off the urge to overeat and engage in other compulsive behaviors. When you feel better, you eat better! I have walked this path myself, and it has led me to peace and freedom.
My philosophy is simple: We are all born whole, perfect and complete. You have all that you need inside of you. It has always been there, waiting for you to find it. It is your divine birthright. My work is to teach you the skills to reconnect to this place of wisdom. This becomes the pathway back home to your thinner self.
I am simply a guide, lighting the path for you to find your way back into your natural state of joy and balance.
The goal of my coaching is to create a lighter, balanced, healthier, nourishing and joy-filled life. You will begin to see results in all areas of your life because how you do food is how you do life!
I coach and mentor people in the areas of: permanent weight loss, food addiction, compulsive, emotional overeating, binge eating recovery, mindfulness and mindful eating, meditation, self care and stress management, self-esteem and body image issues, and weight loss using the law of attraction.
Note: My work is inner focused, not religious, and fits with any belief system you may have, even agnostic. My work assumes that you have all the wisdom and answers you need inside of you.What you call this place -- God, intuition, Higher Power, inner wisdom, or true self -- is up to you. I am simply a guide bringing you back to the truths that are already inside of you.
The beauty of my coaching is that it is tailored to your individual needs. You are not given a "cookie cutter" commercial program, nor are you prescribed a certain diet. You are given tools and support that are appropriate to your lifestyle, personality type, life stage and needs. My methods also complement any weight management plan you may be currently following.
My clients come from all walks of life and can be found in:
Northern California - San Francisco, SF Bay Area, Berkeley, Sacramento, Folsom, Roseville, Reno, Danville, San Ramon, Concord, Walnut Creek, San Mateo, Palo Alto, SF Peninsula, Los Gatos, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel, San Jose, Marin County, Southern California - Los Angeles - Hollywood/Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Pasadena, Orange County - Newport Beach, San Diego, Hawaii, The Northwest - Seattle, Portland, Oregon, The Southwest - Tuscon, Phoenix, Arizona, Boulder, Denver, Colorado, Utah, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, New Mexico, Houston, Dallas, Austin, Texas, Midwest - Kansas City, Chicago, St. Louis, Illinois, and the East Coast: Boston, Washington D.C., New York City, and Miami, Florida, North and South Carolinas, London, England, Paris, France, Scotland, Switzerland, Canada, Germany, South Africa, Singapore, and Australia.
If you are in need of some inspiration, support, motivation, accountability, food for thought, and healing energy, schedule an individual phone or in person session with me.
Coaching is not psychotherapy and it is not intended to take its place. Coaching is about learning new life and coping skills, and though talking is involved, its focus is action oriented. I do not dispense medical advice. Please consult your doctor before embarking on any fitness and weight loss program.
I offer individual phone sessions as well as coaching packages, group coaching programs, and a self-paced audio version of my program.
Coaching is available on a pay as you go basis, or for a savings of over $200, you can purchase a package for 12 sessions.

Are You Ready to Get Off the Dieting Rollercoaster and Make Peace with Food?
If you're like most people, you've probably tried willpower and dieting to lose weight. Unfortunately, for most people this is not enough. The reason willpower and diets fail is because most people overeat for emotional reasons. Emotional eating is a response to various environmental and emotional triggers. These triggers range from stress, exhaustion, uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, procrastination, boredom, and a need for pleasure and comfort.
The How You do Food is How You do Life Emotional Eating Program is designed to get at the core issues of what triggers overeating. It provides you with solid strategies to overcome the reasons why you turn to food. It teaches you how to identify what your true needs are and teaches you appropriate ways to meet them so that you won't be tempted to turn to food. This is the key to overcoming emotional eating.
The online 12 week program consists of 6 modules that will transform your relationship with food, get you off the dieting hamster wheel, teach you ways to deal with your stressful and sabotaging thoughts and emotions, teach you how to eat mindfully, and allow your body to lose weight naturally without dieting.
