My name is Céline Genson.
I am a registered dietitian and mindful eating trainer in Luxembourg.
In 2013, I assisted the first European 'Mindful eating / Conscious living' training, held by Char Wilkins and Jan Chozen Bays, the author of the book 'Mindful eating. A guide to rediscovering a healthy and joyful relationship with food'.
I continued and deepen my personal and professional mindful eating practice, attending the professional MB-EAT training (mindfulness based eating awareness training) held for the first time in Europe by Jean Kristeller and Andrea Lieberstein in May 2014.
In April 2015, I attended the advanced 'Mindful eating/Conscious living' training, held by Jan Chozen Bays and Char Wilkins.
When I started to work as a dietitian, I noticed quite quickly that a lot of clients, who came to see me because of their weight problems, didn't actually need another diet. Many of them had tried different diets before but none of them had given them a satisfying result on the long term. So I understood that I wasn't really helping them by handing out another diet, but on the contrary, I was reinforcing the same viscous circle they were in. I decided to look for a different method that would enable me to really help clients meet their goals. That is when I discovered mindful eating, for myself and my clients. My own mindfulness and mindful eating practice and the work with clients using the mindful eating tools turned out to be very satisfying, for my clients and for me, both professionally and personally. It didn't only improve my relationship to food but changed my attitude towards life in general. I would like to share this experience with my clients and to guide them trough their challenge of permanently changing their unsatisfying eating behaviors.
