"Heal Your Hungry Heart" Be Part of a Support and Therapy Group for Eating Addictions
Our relationship with food is a meaningful ways that we can express our pain and emotions. Sometimes we use food to mirror our trauma and conflicts. We learn how to express ourselves with food, in and outside of our bodies as a way of relieving shame, guilt or the badness we may feel. Bodies are a natural way for expression. It can hold onto secrets, or be a source of separating the good and bad. We may struggle to know what we truly desire anymore, or know what we are separating from but we may keep searching for what is missing but are unable to find it. We cannot put into words what we need from others but we can give a powerful message through the food consumed and expelled, or what is not consumed. We may believe that we are happy and have everything that we want but can be in denial, protesting against powerful others we have relationships with, through our relationship with food.
Our work together as a support and therapy group will consist exploring these issues, relationships, childhood experiences and psych-education. The aims are to confront and understand ambivalent emotions, find ways to feel and accept intense feelings and express them healthily, evoking a change in lifestyle. The group is small, contained, confidential and in a safe setting. It runs over a period of 12 weeks.
Fees are £25 per session.
Duration: 1 and a half hours per week.
