This is a conference for nutritional health practitioners using a brand new, bespoke, virtual conference and expo platform. The IHCAN Conferences Virtual Event is a whole-day event with multiple live sessions and a virtual exhibition – bringing the “in-person” conference experience direct to your device.
Katie Sheen will be presenting the following session from 10-11am:
Overcoming client resistance to nutritional change
Do you sometimes sense that your clients have a subtle resistance to making positive nutritional and lifestyle changes? Are habitual patterns of thought and behaviour constantly triggering a stress response, or trapping them ever more firmly in the signs and symptoms of ill health?
Today’s session offers you practical ideas to help your clients soothe their distress so that both you and they can see their situation more clearly. Learning to turn towards their emotional and physical suffering with a calm, compassionate attitude of self-care allows them to disentangle themselves from unhelpful patterns of thoughts, beliefs and perceptions. Free to act differently, they can then fully engage with your nutrition and lifestyle protocols, enhancing clinical results and setting themselves on a sustainable path to wellness.
