The Essentials Program is designed for those struggling with body image, disordered eating, and eating disorders.
This program is focused on skill-building and insight development. This is not intended as treatment but rather as support and guidance. It is not a substitute for treatment.
The program will guide participants through 5 modules addressing thoughts, emotions & behaviours, distress tolerance, interpersonal skills, as well as goal setting and building a happier, healthier life. Sessions include meditation, mindful movement and skill building.
Groups are co-facilitated by family doctor and trained psychotherapist Dr. Karen Trollope and an eating disorder survivor and peer support worker.
The program is limited to 8 participants to keep groups intimate and to maximize individual attention.
