This group is suitable for anyone seeking support for the first time in a group format. The group is based on the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques specifically developed for eating disorders (CBT-E). In this group participants will get a chance to learn how to change unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that contribute to disordered eating. The facilitator will help identify internal and external factors that are intertwined with eating habits. You will receive helpful tools and learn techniques to address disordered eating. After the introductory four weeks, this group may be offered on an on-going basis for maintenance as a support group throughout the summer with a focus around what works and what does not, as well as refining tools and techniques learned on the journey to recovery.
A minimum of four registrations is required for the group to begin.
