Tackling Binge Eating

Next course starts soon: 4 x Mondays 5.15-6.45 pm Wellington CBD.
Do you sometimes overeat and feel unable to stop at these times? Would you like to change this but don’t know how? Would learning more about this in a small, supportive group be helpful to you? If so, this course may be right for you. The course consists of a 1 1/2 hour session each week for 4 weeks initially, followed by a further 6 weeks if you find the approach is right for you. There will be a maximum of 5 people in the group.
By the end of the group, you will:
understand more about binge eating
have identified some personal factors that set off a binge
have identified some factors that keep the binges happening
find out what holds you back from change— and what to do about it
know more about the change process
know whether mindful eating and intuitive eating could be helpful for you
learn strategies for making changes to use in your everyday life

Breaking free of the binging cycle
