Community Table

EDQ Peer Support & Meal Wellbeing supports those who are recovering from eating disorders by providing a safe, supported environment where they can work through the challenges associated with eating.

The Community Table is facilitated by qualified Eating Issues Practitioners and is designed for those with a variety of eating disorders. As part of each session, the group shares a meal, which is provided by EDQ. The Community Table uses a semi-structure approach, allowing time for pre- and post-meal activities, as well as the flexibility to explore a variety of different topics and skills that may be beneficial to recovery. The Community Table is a closed group of 6-8 individuals, who meet once a week for 5 weeks. The group sessions are three hours in length and currently run over the lunch period.

There are many reasons to join The Community Table:

  • Receive support and understanding from Eating Issues Practitioners and your peers
  • Work towards personal goals around nutrition
  • Rediscover your relationship with food
  • Explore different skills to manage intrusive thoughts and feelings that accompany eating
  • Try new activities that may be helpful during the challenging pre and post meal times
