We’re constantly scouting for world-class, influential presenters that help our members think in new ways – experts who can contribute creative solutions to challenges that we face in counselling our clients. Now, we’ve secured an exceptional learning opportunity that’s centred on helping you to support your clients’ well-being in new ways.

Dietitian Connection is pleased to bring the expertise of Glenn Mackintosh, founder of Weight Management Psychology, to you. Glenn has presented a series of five webinars on the psychological aspects of weight management, with emphasis on overall health.

Glenn brings a special passion (and talent) for training professionals in applying psychological principals to help clients who are grappling with weight management issues. His presentations earn raves from dietitians for being highly applicable and refreshingly insightful.

Yes, you’ve seen him on “The Biggest Loser: Transformed (2017)”, and his expert advice is regularly featured in the media, from Weight Watchers to “A Current Affair”. But what truly sets Glenn apart is his ability to deliver a wide range of psychology-based interventions that focus on holistic client goals and values. After watching these webinars, you’ll leave with a workable framework from Glenn that will help you de-emphasize weight loss with your clients, and instead focus on positive body image and self-love at every size. He’ll give you strategies to help your clients escape emotional eating, transform their mindsets and start to love their bodies.

 

Webinar 1 Foundations for Success 

“Emotional eating: it’s like double-dipping on a bad mood.” No, that’s not original – but we love the description. It comes from Glenn Mackintosh, psychologist, who’s heading a series of workshops for us this winter on psychological approaches to weight management. This  workshop covers “Freedom from Emotional Eating”. Glenn will share “marvellous methods to manage moods” with your clients, how to identify what your clients are really craving [and hint, it’s not food], and more. Take a fresh approach to client weight management and delve into the psychology of it with Glenn.  

Webinar 2 Mindset for Transformation

Help your clients transform their minds, emotions – and ultimately their bodies! This second webinar will teach 7 key mindsets for transformation, how to achieve a mindset for weight management success, and how to use skill power – not will power – to develop key mindsets. If you’re seeking innovative new ways to counsel clients on weight management, you won’t want to miss this webinar.

Webinar 3 Naturally Healthy Habits

Teach your clients to eat well – without trying; to develop a love affair with physical activity; and to achieve freedom from weight worries. These key learnings — and more — form the crux of psychologist Glenn Mackintosh’s third workshop  If you’re searching for a practical non-dieting approach to help support your clients’ weight management, you’ll want to hear Glenn’s thinking.

Webinar 4 Freedom from Emotional Eating

Glenn will share “marvellous methods to manage moods” with your clients, how to identify what your clients are really craving [and hint, it’s not food], and more. Take a fresh approach to client weight management and delve into the psychology of it with Glenn.

Webinar 5 Love Your Body Healthy 

The 5th workshop in the series focuses on ending self-criticism and learning to care for yourself from a place of love. You’ll walk away with actionable strategies to help your clients toward losing the guilt, gaining acceptance and transforming their health.
