Blog

This is Sheena’s Place’s Client-Centred Blog that features our recovery stories, art, struggles, poetry, interviews, and many more, which all follow a set of safe space guidelines. We recognize that everyone is at a different place in their recovery. Food, weight, dieting, calories, specific eating disordered behaviours, or exercise behaviours can often be triggering, and are therefore not published on this blog.
