ealthy Habits Group will confront your “diet mentality” and the concept of “good” and “bad” food. We will focus on mindfulness: increasing awareness of self, environment and emotions.
You will learn the necessary tools to improve your relationship with food and cope with those uncomfortable feelings.
This group will benefit those who emotionally eat, are frequently on diets, are looking for a new relationship with food, and/or are struggling with making lifestyle changes in the area of food.
Healthy Habits is a closed 14 session group. Topics will build upon each other so your commitment to attending each session is important.
A workbook is used as part of the growth process and will be supplied at your initial group.
Please call to confirm your space and payment eligibility. Space is limited so call today. If you are not a current client of Red Oak, an initial assessment is required to determine group readiness. Please note there is an additional fee for this assessment, if required.
Healthy Habits Group Testimonials
“Jenny helped me to practice during the week, helped me to set goals related to the material and prompted me to complete exercises and activities that I otherwise wouldn’t have done. The group setting helped me keep a more open mind and challenged me to think differently at times instead of staying in the same “thought rut”. I would encourage others who are struggling to participate in the group, even if they think it will be a review or repeat of previous efforts. Across the weeks, I learned to practice skills and tools that have helped me feel more well.” BL
