Finding Food Freedom
Online course: gentle disordered eating recovery
What is "Finding Food Freedom" Online Course
Finding Food Freedom is our signature 12 step evidenced based programme to support you to end food and body obsession, recover from binge eating, emotional overeating, yoyo-dieting or restriction. Our approach works with the mind and body and teaches you to move out of survival mode and realise that recovery is not about strength or willpower, but rather about science and safety. In Finding Food Freedom we delve into the science behind why we might keep turning to behaviours that cause them distress and how to overcome this gently and tenderly, using the body as ally, not an enemy.
Finding Food Freedom has been developed after working with 1000's of individuals in the eating disorder and body image space and realising that there is a gap in understanding why disordered behaviours can be so challenging to confront and change; by creating awareness around this, our members stop blaming and shaming themselves and learn to open themselves up to other ways of coping, feeling and living.
