Problematic patterns of eating could include living according to strict rules, overeating, undereating and excessive exercise, or using food to manage difficult emotions.
We’ll use theory and techniques from cognitive behavioural therapy to better understand cycles of unhelpful behaviour that keep us stuck, and explore practical ideas to help you make lasting, meaningful change.
Key topics we cover:
- understanding why our thoughts and behaviours can keep us stuck
- diets: myth busting and fact checking
- how to turn rigid rules into flexible guidelines
- the role of body image, self esteem and perfectionism
- ideas for managing complex emotions that don’t involve food
This group is psychoeducative in nature rather than group therapy, and we don’t expect you to share beyond what is comfortable. Opportunity for between-session check-ins is available.
