Eating disorders can be isolating and difficult to explain to or share about with others.
Group therapy for eating disorders offers the opportunity to hear from others who are struggling with the same concerns as you. Group also offers the opportunity to share about your struggles with people who can personally understand what you are going through.
Unlike individual counselling, group therapy offers the potential to benefit from both receiving and giving support. The group facilitator works collaboratively with the group members to cultivate a safe space that allows group members to feel comfortable being open and honest about their inner feelings, thoughts, and struggles.

This group will focus on a variety of topics and skills related to eating disorders, including: emotional awareness and regulation, understanding cycles that fuel the eating disorder symptoms, practical skills to re-structure unhelpful cycles or patterns that perpetuate the illness.
