Group Support and Guidance to help you improve your relationship with your body

 
 

This new monthly group provides support and guidance for people wanting to improve the relationship they have with food and their body - bought to you by the teams at Fresh Approach to Wellbeing and Mind Body Well.

This group is for you if you live in a larger body and feel unsupported by society. Explore how you can improve your health without focusing on weight loss. Build a sense of community with others who no longer want to be judged by a number on the scales.

WHY WOULD I ATTEND?

There is power in feeling heard and understood. We search to connect with others and to feel that we have a place where we can belong. You are not alone in your confusion around how your body fits in this world - Inhabit is an opportunity to discover this.

Every day we are exposed to images of people in the media that don’t represent the diversity that bodies actually come in. We ca be left feeling there is something wrong with us, and that in order to fit in we must shrink ourselves. 

This can be dangerous. If we deprive our body of it’s needs and ignore our appetite so that we can fit in, we learn that our body can’t be trusted and we disconnect.

WHAT IS INHABIT?

Inhabit is a group which can help re-connect you back with your body. We will focus on inhabiting the skin we’re in to befriend our bodies and let go of notions of the body as the enemy. Inhabit is a group providing an alternate path to health that does not involve dieting.

Each month, we will meet for 90 minutes to discuss and explore body and eating topics as a group, the themes each month being grounded in the Non-Diet Approach, Health at Every Size ® (HAES) and body acceptance movements.

If trying to control your body and food has become exhausting, there is a way out. There is support. There is a space for you.  

INHABIT FACILITATOR

The Inhabit group will be Facilitated by Louise Grech, Accredited Practicing Dietitian at Mind Body Well and Fresh Approach to Wellness.
