A new Vision and plan for Psychotherapy and
for Weight Problems and Eating Disorders
When I talk to some people about
weight problems they tell me that's it's easy to fix. Just go on a diet and stop eating.
In reality it is not that simple.
Do you know that there are now more
people with Weight Problems and Eating Disorders than there has ever been in the history of mankind; that is,
there are now more people with too much weight and emotional and physical health problems as a

treat. Why is that?
have something to do with the increase in problems such as Depression, Stress, Anxiety, Anger and a
general dissatisfaction with Life.
The fat guy with the weight problem is
also the fat guy with Depression, Stress, Anxiety and other Life challenges.
The weight problem has merged with
other problems and they have become complex and difficult to treat.
To treat them we need to better
I think these problems are Hybrid
problems that often have their expression in the physical world and their roots in the Emotional,
Psychological and Behaviour Development that is created by someone's inner world
To deal with these problems
effectively we need to understand and work with this.
My view was that to begin to influence
and change these problems we need a new Vision and a new plan.
In the past great minds thought about great problems. They were
interested in what made the world tick and how the natural world really worked. They wanted to understand the
Patterns and Structures that came together to create our world and our universe.
Through understanding these Patterns
and Structures, great minds like; Albert Einstein, Louise Pasteur, Sir Isaac Newton, Michael Faraday and Charles
Darwin, developed a vision for discovery and the creation of new theories that have helped mankind in its
development and understanding of the natural world.
People and their internal worlds; with
the struggles and challenges that they face, are also a part of the natural world.
These struggles are
My vision was to bring awareness of the Patterns and Structures of our
inner world; and how they work with our integration into the larger world and the societies and structures that we
By doing this we
can better understand the demands of our inner worlds and how can we balance these with the demands of the
outside world that we, in reality, live within. This can help us to reduce and eliminate internal conflicts,
inner pain, inner confusion, inner doubt and control the affect it has upon us and our
My vision and plan was to stop seeing broken people and to see
interrupted Patterns and Structures that could be fixed and repaired. By applying my vision and theory to
Psychotherapy and Behaviour Development I could begin to address those problems that are increasing in number, size
I could use the
Patterns and Structures of Nature to reform and redirect the Patterns and Structures of Human
Achieving this has not been an easy task. It has taken decades of work
and thought to create a process that I call Actualisation.
Actualisation works with the three
pillars of Emotional, Psychological and Behaviour Development. These lay at the heart of our most challenging
problems and like all of nature, they have their own patterns, structures, processes and time scales that they
need to work with.
With every problem, nature shows us
that a solution to that problem is possible. This is because every problem is simply a failed solution that has
not found the right formula to be a real solution.
With Actualisation we work with the problem architecture, the patterns
and structures of nature and The Human Algorithm’s® that give those patterns and

My name is David J. Sheridan and I specialise in working with complex and
My service is built on a Vision for Psychotherapy and Behaviour Development
and a foundation of experience, expertise and innovative work that I have
done with The Human Algorithm® Project, Hypnotherapy, Counselling and working with an Alcohol charity and clinical
Community Alcohol Team.
During this time I also set up my own Therapy clinic and began working with
Weight, Obesity, Stress, Anxiety, PTSD, Depression and other issues; looking for better ways to do
My background involved solving problems in different areas including Building, Engineering,
Business, Management and Therapy. I am a natural innovator and designer and I often had to innovate new solutions
and find different ways of looking at and understanding problems; so as to find new solutions.
My service is high quality, tailored, very confidential, adaptable and focused on
moving problems out of their established positions and into a new and more desirable one.
I work with a range of problems including Eating Disorders, Depression, Stress,
Existential Anxiety, Anger and developing Life Skills.
Often problems that I work with are Hybrids with a combination of different issues
that have become bundled together to create a Hydra problem. Hydra problems are more complex and difficult to deal
I work with people in different locations and in their homes or places of
business. I cover London, Greater London Area, Birmingham, Derby, Leicester, Nottingham and Manchester areas. I
also work overseas by arrangement.

fields; people in sensitive positions; people who can't afford negative publicity; Wealthy people, people in
ongoing difficult situations; Partners of these people; I provide a top quality very confidential service designed
to help them with their challenges.
I can work with Children and Adults.
I use a process called Actualisation.
Actualisation for Weight Problems and Eating Disorders
Actualisation is a method for improving and changing lives. It is a
process that I have developed over the last 25 years.
Actualisation focuses on working with problems that are supported by
the 3 pillars of Emotions, Psychology and Behaviour Development.
Weight problems and Eating Disorders are maintained and supported by
these 3 Pillars.
To change a Weight and Dietary problem we have to work with these 3
Pillars. By doing so we change the structure of the Disorder Eating and the consequences it produces.
Why should you use Actualisation?
Actualisation is a means of changing
your life which can be used by anyone with a desire to have and live a better and more fulfilling
Actualisation is achieved through a
process of gradual change that leads to rich rewards through living and experiencing a much better
This process is suitable for
conditions where Emotional, Psychological and Behaviour Development are the three pillars on which the
condition stands; Weight and Dietary problems for example.
Actualisation changes the nature of Weight Problems and Eating
In my work with The Human Algorithm® Project I am working with
the Architecture of problems and solutions. My work showed me that all problems have structures and that those
structures could be understood. Once you can better understand the architecture of problems; you can create better
solutions and new ways of working with problems.
I am taking this approach into working with Eating Disorders. All Eating Disorders have an
individual formula which creates and supports the problem. By better understanding this we can influence and
change the formula and the results that it produces. I use my work from The Human Algorithm® Project to do this;
working with the Patterns and Structures of behaviours, activities and actions.
Why The Normal Approach To Dieting Doesn't Work!
The normal approach for dealing with weight problems and disordered eating is
to use The Dieting Pathway. This focuses on food, weight, diet and exercise (The Physical Aspects) but it has
a very limited effect upon the medium to long term consequences of these problems. This approach is used by
companies such as Weight Watchers and Slimming World and by many in the Medical profession.
What is typical about this approach is that it fails to change behaviours over the
medium to long term and it has little real success for those with entrenched Weight and Dietary
In my experience it also produces Yo-yo dieters and re-enforces the Weight
problem, making it harder to treat.
So what can be done about it?
Challenging The Way That Things Are Done!
Actualisation enables us to challenge convention and to take a fresh
look at how we understand and work with Weight problems and Eating Disorders.
We can see what the real demands of the problem are and see how we
understand the Patterns and Structures of the Human Behaviours, Activities and Actions that actually lead to the
creation and maintenance of Weight and Dietary problems.
When we understand these, we can then use these insights and
understandings to work with these problems differently.
The real question that everyone has
The real question everyone has is this:
How do they reach the place where real change becomes a possibility
that can be turned into a really?
I worked with this problem over the course of many years. My goal was
to create a new type of Solution that could be delivered through Programmes that have been
designed to create "The Condition of Possibility" that everyone
The Condition of Possibility is
the place where it becomes possible for real and permanent change to

These points of change are so
special that we called them Genesis Points. The Actualisation Programmes help people with weight problems to
reach and use Genesis Points and use them to change their weight
The Actualisation Programme Format
The Actualisation Programme for Weight Problems and Disordered
Eating is provided in 1-year long modules. Each Module has a maximum of 46 sessions.
Each Actualisation Programme has an Appointed Programme Manager who provides guidance
and personal assistance throughout the Programmes module.
The Actualisation Programmes are comprehensive, high quality and high value
Programmes that include a mixture of Consultancy, Training, Mentoring, Experiential Learning, Support, New
information, a New Approach, New Systems and Structures that you will not have been exposed to before.
In reality; the most complex and difficult problems, that score
high on the Problem Scale™ will need to be worked with over time and in a stepped process. To achieve this we
simply link modules together and work at different levels. This format allows complex and difficult problems to be
dealt with in module format and for the person to undertake their journey from the problem to the
solution with realistic time scales and the space for Experiential
An Actualisation Programme will normally include working with the

The Emotional Management System
The Psychological Management System and;
The Behaviour Management System.

time scales and having realistic expectations for the client group allows new things to be

Want to have your Personally Tailored
Entry to an Actualisation Programme is by informal interview.
We do this because not everyone is going to be suitable and they may not be ready
or able to undertake the Programme at that time.
Where this is the case other work and Programmes that form part of The Human
Algorithm® Pathway may be suitable and can form a foundation that can be used later on.
The informal Programme Interviews are a chargeable service. Contact us for
details. Contact Us
Once the informal interview has taken place I can design your personal
Programme and tell you what the likely cost is going to be and how long it may take. These are
