Starting on June 12 for a total of eight Tuesdays, Eating Disorders of York Region‘s first ever Recovery Support Group will be hosted in Thornhill, ON from 5 to 6pm.
Flora Svinarenko, psychotherapist, will facilitate these groups.
The Recovery group is intended for those who are currently working actively on maintaining changes they’ve made in regards to their eating behaviours while also attending other group programs offered by EDOYR or participating in eating disorder treatment.
Located in a safe and empathetic environment, this group will provide attendees with coping tools and support needed to address complicated emotions, unhealthy behaviours or unhelpful thoughts.
The Recovery group is not structured, so individuals can bring their issues, difficulties and achievements up for discussion.
The Recovery group will also bring everyone in attendance together to explore helpful and useful ways to reduce symptoms and make meaningful changes.
The road to recovery can be challenging and emotional support is necessary to overcome or prevent lapses.
