Welcome to the Relaunch of The Balance Program!
First we want to congratulate you for being open to learning about a different approach to healthy living. It seems like each week there is a new and faster way to become healthy. It is very confusing, frustrating and clearly not working. Dr Cheryl Allen and Jane Wood saw a need in our community to create a program that guides clients in exploring ways of breaking through the blocks to accessing full potential. We are addressing all aspects of holistic living not just changing a diet.
Over the past year took a break from The Balance Program. In that time we conducted extensive market research along with hiring a consultant to collect and analyse feedback from our past participants to offer the best program yet. We decided to change the focus of the the program to a mindset based program moving away from a previously predominately dietary approach. We came to this result from the focus groups sessions and matched that to the successful aspects of the the existing program. We will be diving deeper into the human psyche and targeting habits and beliefs to bring about change.
What is the Balance Program?
The aim of the Balance Program is to cultivate an awareness of True Self. This is an experiential process whereby we will guide our clients in a journey to re-align themselves with their true potential. We facilitate this through the transformation of mindset and fostering self-belief in our clients.
The program is 12 weeks with each week focusing on a specific theme. This information will be provided to clients through a electronic workbook, preclass videos and weekly in-person meetings. The weeks will be laid out as follows:
- Week 0: Getting to know you
- Week 1: Setting the Intention
- Week 2: Discovering Your True Self
- Week 3: Face-to-Face with Your Cravings
- Week 4: Planning not Perfection
- Week 5: Celebrating Non Scale Victories
- Week 6: Getting Real with Guilt and Shame
- Week 7: Creating Disenchantment
- Week 8: Building Self Compassion
- Week 9: Learning to Respond to Life
- Week 10: Fostering Generosity
- Week 11: Cultivating Vulnerability
- Week 12: Walking Your New Path
We are looking for people who are ready to make a fundamental transformation; mind, body and soul. This journey is not for everyone and at some points it is going to be difficult. But if you are ready to free yourself from your current pain this program is waiting for you.
Meet Your Practitioner
I love food and everything about it! Creating, cooking, preparing, smelling, savouring and of course eating; so it was only natural I chose a profession based in food. My fascination of food drew me to the study of nutrition, but it is the healing properties that continues to drive my passion.
I have always had a heart for helping others. Initially this led me to exploring the field of Dietetics. Learning the powerful effect nutrition has on the body sparked a passion within me to look deeper into the root causes of health.
