From January 2019, a monthly eatonomy group will take place in Norfolk.
The group session will be held on the last Saturday each month and is open to women aged 18+ who are struggling with emotion-driven overeating issues such as compulsive eating, emotional eating and binge eating disorder*.
The question posed in the title of the monthly blog post will be the focus of discussion and you’ll be encouraged to reflect on and explore your thoughts, feelings and eating behaviour.
To be eligible to join the group you need to be an eatonomy subscriber so be sure to click the “Follow eatonomy via email” button – you’ll find it at the side of the page for desktop, and at the bottom of the page for tablet or mobile. It’s free to subscribe and your email address won’t be shared or displayed. It just means you’ll be emailed every time something new is published.
Please note that this is not a weight-loss group.
I don’t offer “tips and techniques” to help you adhere to “healthy eating” or a diet. It’s very clear from my blog posts how I feel about dieting and the damage that it does to us both physically and psychologically (click here to read more).
Instead, this group is an opportunity to share your experiences with like-minded people in a safe space and find ongoing support to help you move towards making peace with food and yourself.
For information about venue, cost and other details please use the contact form or email email@example.com. If you wish to take part in the group, you’ll be asked to complete a short questionnaire.
Booking for the first eatonomy group session is now open! To book your place, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re too far away to attend the group, you could think about starting your own monthly eatonomy self-help group in your community. If this is something you’d like to do then please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.
