We offer 5 types of groups
Support groups offer individuals the opportunity to help each other in an informal setting with the philosophy that individuals are the experts of their own experience. Guided by a professional facilitator, people can share their stories and receive encouragement from others, which for many is the first step in moving from isolation to becoming part of a community and feeling a sense of belonging. This type of group is also available for families, friends and partners.
Body image groups
Body image groups heighten awareness about the connection between mind and body through the use of various techniques including gentle physical movement and the exploration of feelings and perceptions. Participants will rediscover their strengths and learn new ways to manage body image distress.
Skill-building groups present techniques to cope with feelings, modify behaviours and change circumstances that affect quality of life.
Expressive arts groups
Expressive arts groups encourage participants to use the various art mediums of painting/drawing, writing, theatre and music to express difficult feelings and release difficult emotions. Please click here to see some of the artwork created by our clients.
Nutrition groups are structured groups that focus on developing knowledge and skills for nourishing the body and increasing comfort in the kitchen.
