I chat to Therapeutic Practitioner Chris Heath about Emotional Eating.
Is your life controlled by your food cravings? Emotional Eating is the number 1 cause of excessive weight gain…& many of us do it! We reach for that packet of biscuits or chocolates or crisps when we are bored, stressed or fatigued, etc.
Here, Chris Heath talks about the psychology behind ‘Emotional Eating’ & techniques* that can help us with food cravings. (*Using Emotional Freedom Technique). This is essentially an interview about emotional health – stress, anxiety and excess weight are all linked!
Chris Heath is a Certified Practitioner in Hypnotherapy, Advanced EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique / Tapping), Matrix Reimprinting and Emotional Transformation (EmoTrance).
Chris has successfully managed to help people struggling with post-traumatic stress disorders, confidence issues, food cravings (emotional eating), stress, phobias and anxieties.

My entry for HBA (Hospital Broadcasting Association) Awards 2014.
In the ‘Tindy C’ show & I cover chat (various topics), numerous interviews (with celebs & others), great music, positive thought for the week, random fact & star sign.
I keep my shows light hearted & inject a spark of quirky humour & fun. With Leicester being such a diverse city, with a large Asian population — part of my show ‘Desi Fever’ –is everything Bollywood, Bhangra & Urban. (‘Desi’ is a term for the people, cultures, & products of the Indian subcontinent or South Asia).
1) I had the opportunity to cover the Brit Asia Awards & spoke to winner SARIKA, who has given us a demo of her singing!
2) Roachkiller is an Urban artist, & this was just an intro to him!
3) Louise Richardson has managed to turn her life round after a serious illness, & had just released her novel ‘The Celebration of Life’. This was a positive message to long term hospital patients.
4) Sleeping positions — this was a comment made during one of the chats where we were discussing & informing listeners what different sleeping positions mean!
5) I interviewed the group Swami at an exclusive private gig to which Radio Fox was invited. Their fusion of music (electro-rock-bhangra-urban) is rapidly increasing in popularity amongst people of all ethnicities. I have included clips of my interviews with both S-Endz & Sureo.
6) I interviewed 4 members from Eternal Taal — a famous predominantly female Bhangra Entertainments troupe, specializing in Dhol playing (Indian drum) live on my show, as they had just appeared in a Bollywood movie – Yamla Pagla Deewana 2. The youngest guest was 10 years old. I also spoke to them about other things, such as how they got into dhol playing. Plus they played the Dhol live on my show. These are four short parts of an interview that lasted an hour.
To keep listeners engaged, I keep talk accessible & enjoyable, incorporating lots of humour! I am aware of my listeners, which is why I cover various topics relevant to health & wellbeing. I also interview many music stars, & attempt to explain what things are (such as the ‘Dhol’) so every listener, regardless of background may enjoy my show, which I hope is lively, fun & engaging.
BEST SPEECH PACKAGE: TINDY C INTERVIEWS
FUNDRAISING TEAM ABOUT A SPECIALIST DEMENTIA ROOM AT
LEICESTER ROYAL INFIRMARY
29TH JULY 2012, RADIO FOX
I interviewed Bally Virdee (member of the SERCO security team at LRI) and Billy Hamnett (specialist dementia nurse) about dementia, including symptoms, the wider effects of the disease and problems that can arise within the A & E department.
Due to the ageing population this is a very relevant topic, which affects many people. The LRI have decided to positively tackle issues which may arise within the hospital, as the security team are often called to help calm down patients who are suffering from dementia. These patients can become extremely confused and distressed.
Therefore the security team and others have decided to do a charity event to raise money for a much needed facility within the A & E department (specialist dementia room).
I spoke to them about their personal experiences, how the room will help, and the charity event (Hadrian’s Wall challenge and other fundraising events). The aim of this interview was to promote awareness and to help raise funds for this much needed facility.

This interview is a 5 minute extract and did help the team to exceed their target!
BEST FEMALE PRESENTER ENTRY: TINDY CHAGGAR
I discuss various topics on my show & invite guests along to share their inspiring stories & expertise; I also go out & about to bring interesting guests direct to the wards & there is a section of my show dedicated to bollywood/bhangra & urban music.
I feel it is very important to embrace people for what they are, & to discuss items that would benefit our audience.
The Cobras piece was done to promote awareness about wheelchair basketball. I had the opportunity to chat to Natasha Davies who represented GB at the Paralympics. Ian Trott (Coach) did come in as a guest at a later stage & informed listeners how they could get involved.
Janet Hills is a tutor with helpful advice — the piece I’ve selected is where I further question her, after she told me that a lot of issues stem from childhood.
I also chat about various topics- serious & lighthearted (such as 50 Shades of Grey); & run competitions (e.g. the tongue twister competition) — I try to encourage as many people as possible to get involved.
I interviewed Raghav this year – an International Urban mainstream artist.
I address a number of issues & have also interviewed others in 2012 including: an Award-Winning Hollistic Therapist; somebody about their Brazillian charity trek experience (for ‘Scope’); the hospital staff about Dementia & a charity event. My outside broadcasts include the start of The Queen’s Jubilee Tour in Leicester & an interview with one of the Leicester Torch Bearers for 2012 Olympics. I also interviewed the ‘Godfather’ of Bhangra this year– Channi Singh (live on the phone) about his recently awarded OBE, plus other music stars.
My basic belief is to try & empathize: I attempt to bring facts of what’s going on- so realism, yet keep a sense of positivity to uplift people who may be feeling rather down.
