Many individuals either struggle with their relationship with food themselves or knows someone who does.
Whilst many people have disordered eating patterns and unhelpful thoughts around food, they often don’t realise that they can do something to shift these thoughts and behaviours. For example, many people will at times feel out of control around food and find themselves over-eating, bingeing or being very restrictive and obsessive around food.
Whilst many people have heard of eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, there is less awareness around disorders such as ARFID, binge eating disorder, orthorexia, bigorexia and other unhelpful eating behaviours.
Lead by a psychotherapist, this eating disorder workshop session aims to raise awareness around eating disorders and disordered eating patterns, equipping individuals with tools to manage these.
This 60 minute session will cover:
Our thoughts and feelings about food – we explore the complex relationship that we have with food and the range of factors that drive our food choices.
Some common eating disorders and disordered eating patterns including binge eating disorder, bulimia, orthorexia, bigorexia and ARFID.
Some unhelpful thinking patterns that can drive an unhealthy relationship with food.
How to spot the signs and symptoms of disordered eating and eating disorders.
The connection between food and body image.
Some tools to start rebuiling your relationship with food and your body.
How to support someone with an eating disorder or disordered eating patterns and what to do if you suspect that someone you know is struggling with their relationship with food.
