FEEDMEFREEDOM - FAQs
FOR ALL OFFERINGS...
1. AM I EXPECTED TO SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION WHEN WORKING IN A GROUP SETTING?
No. What you share during an event is down to you. Each person decides their own level of personal disclosure - nobody is put under the spotlight. If you don’t want to say anything at all that would be fine too.
2. IF I DO SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION WILL IT BE HELD IN THE STRICTEST OF CONFIDENCE?
Yes. The venues we choose are totally private. What is more, we have a Group Conduct Agreement. Confidentiality is at the top of the list. We hold all attendees to this agreement. We reserve the right to ask anyone who doesn’t behave in accordance to the agreement to leave or refuse them entry to any event.
3. ARE YOU GOING TO WEIGH ME, DISCLOSE MY WEIGHT OR RECORD MY WEIGHT IN ANY WAY?
No, no and no. We are not running a slimming club! What you actually weigh is none of our business. However, exploring the thinking, behaviour and beliefs about weight and weighing yourselves is. Together we can explore this very personal subject in an impersonal, non-intrusive manner.
4. ARE YOU GOING TO RECOMMEND OR TRY TO SELL ME A SPECIAL DIET?
No. This is not a slimming club. We have no interest in or affiliation with any other organisation who sells specific diets or dietary advice. We are not here to tell you what to eat and what not to eat - that’s the job of your body! We subscribe to the thought that 'one man's meat is another man's poison'. We help you tune in to your body to decide what to and what not to eat.
5. WILL I BE EXPECTED TO STAND UP A TALK?
No. But if you have something to share and the occasion is conducive to sharing, we create a safe and respectful space where you can be heard.
6. CAN I CANCEL AT ANYTIME?
TO BE CONFIRMED - Our Cancellation & Refund Policy is currently under review. In the meantime, if you have any questions please contact us.
7. ARE THERE ANY HIDDEN OR ADDITIONAL COSTS?
No. We really try to be as clear as possible about charges. Charges for the online course and bespoke modules will be clearly marked. We will also do our best to list any possible additional event cost like parking, lunch and optional extras.
8. IS THIS A RELIGIOUS/SPIRITUAL COURSE; DO I HAVE TO BELIEVE IN ANYTHING OR CHANGE MY OWN BELIEFS?
Absolutely not. The ideas we present are not dogmatic or aimed to challenge any of your own spiritual beliefs. All mindfulness and meditation originates from eastern spiritual traditions. And we are open to learn from this, as well as other spiritual traditions and philosophies too. But there is no need to hold any religious or spiritual beliefs to gain benefit from what we include in FeedMeFreedom. Whatever faith/non faith you have, the ideas presented for your consideration are only to help you develop happy, healthy eating habits - not convert you to any belief system.
9. DO I ALREADY NEED A LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE TO SIGN UP?
No, none is required. We look at all manner of material, but this is aimed at the general public so you don't need a science degree or a doctorate in psychology!
10. WILL YOU WANT TO TAKE ANY PHOTOS OF ME?
No, none are required. Not even before and after photos, although if you find this useful you can. But this is not a necessary part of our work as we will be looking into alternative ways to motivate ourselves.
11. ARE YOU SELLING ANY SUPPLEMENTS OR SLIMMING PILLS?
No. We have no interest in promoting any quick fixes as in our experience they don't work. We have no affiliation with any other organisation who sells these kinds of 'slimming aids'.
12. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?
Please email Pema with any other questions you have. We do our best to respond as soon as possible.
