Amit VyasPsychodynamic Psychotherapist

I will help you to explore the connections between eating and your inner emotional life. My first priority will be to help break negative cycles and patterns of eating. I will be your guide, helping you to examine your relationships both in the past and the present - building connections with how they may have shaped your relationship with food.

I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist, which simply means that I work on a deep level to help people to understand their personal journey through life, and how their relationships in the past and the present have helped shape who they are.

I have worked in the wider mental health field with people who have severe mental health conditions, as well as those who have had difficult or traumatic life circumstances. I have worked with front line care services and am especially interested in health and wellness. My previous role was as a wellbeing specialist working with a charity. I am fascinated with the science around wellbeing and human optimisation; which is about the lifestyle and behaviours that best help people to flourish as individuals. I have a personal experience with weight issues as a boy, and have close family members who have struggled with weight issues throughout their lives. From a very young age, I instinctively understood that the weight issues were not due to lack of knowledge about healthy options or lack of personal discipline. The issues were about a struggle to manage overwhelming emotions and sometimes about substituting for a lack of other natural needs. These experiences have brought me to an awareness coupled with sensitivity and empathy about weight issues. Coming from a British Asian background I also understand how different cultural influences can complicate the relationship with food for those who have cross-cultural influences in their lives.

I am fascinated by nutrition, supplementation and the links between food, medicine, training and longevity. In my personal time, I love to learn about these subjects. I practice intermittent fasting, mindfulness meditation and have been a martial artist for most of my adult life. All of which have been my vehicles for personal growth.
