10 Week Therapeutic Group
August 31, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The groups are held in a safe and supportive environment. These groups are open to people of all genders from age 16 years.
The 10-week group aims to create a safe and supportive environment. This allows people to explore some of the underlying reasons why we might be struggling with eating disorders. We look at a range of topics including feelings and needs, relationships and communication. Also how body image and how gender roles, cultural and family expectations might play a factor in eating disorders. Participants must commit to attending all 10 weeks of the group.
The group explores these different topics through discussions and expressively based therapeutic activities. These serve to increase our insight and build our support networks, skills and resources in our recovery journey.
Reasons for participating:
Reduce experiences of isolation, shame and misinformation surrounding an eating disorder
Receive support and understanding
Explore personal issues that contribute to your eating disorder
Explore our sense of self and identity separate from the eating issue
Gain valuable insight into your own and others’ experiences
Enhance your ability to seek support that will help you further in the process of recovery from an eating issue
Some aims of the group:
Learning to recognise the internal critical voice and awareness of the role the critical voice plays
Awareness of the relationship between feelings and over or under eating and body dissatisfaction
An understanding of why diets don’t work
Understanding that recovery is a process
