About This Group

Because no one should have to face an eating disorder alone, this multi-week professionally facilitated support group promotes self discovery in a safe space.

This support group is:

  • Professionally-facilitated by people with extensive backgrounds in eating disorders.
  • Intended to support to those wishing to continue on the path of recovery in a safe, nonjudgmental environment.
  • Limited to a small number of participants allow everyone to participate fully.

This group will cover a range of topics, including:

  • Intuitive eating strategies
  • Personal support suggestions for mealtime
  • Tips for meal support at work and school
  • The final session(s) will also discuss meal support strategies during the holidays

Individuals interested in participating do not require proof of diagnosis. This group is open to those with all manner of disordered eating behaviour.

About Your Facilitator

 

I specialize in helping individuals break free from eating disorders, disordered eating, and folks tired of the harmful cycle of dieting. I help individuals get in touch with their hunger cues
and body’s needs through intuitive eating, and encourage them accept their body by embracing the Health at Every Size® movement. I follow an ‘all foods fit’ approach and believe a healthy diet does not have any restrictions or limitations. My goal is to help individuals find the peace with food, and turn their difficult relationship with food into a nurturing and enjoyable experience. I strive to continuously challenge diet culture and help clients honour their hunger and break free of the toxic cycle of dieting!
