Relationships with our bodies – It’s complicated. If how you feel about your body is affecting your life, how you eat and your relationships you don’t need to be stuck. You can turn it around. The Body Group at The Counseling Center at Cinco Ranch is a place where we start to make peace with our bodies. We use techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness along with the support from the group and nutritional insight to achieve big changes in lifestyle and how you feel in your own skin.
Who Is Body Group For?
The Body Group is a supportive place to start healing if you struggle with:
- Emotional eating
- Binge eating
- Negative body image
- Restrictive eating
How Can The Body Group Help Me?
Often, problems with bodies and food start in other times of our lives when we needed a way to cope. When habits started we had no way of knowing that this way of coping would eventually become a problem later on. When it comes to our bodies, it can be difficult to figure out why we think how we think and why we do what we do.
We just feel trapped.
Fast forward, and the things we are left with are shame, guilt, anxiety and confusion. There may also be physical consequences not only in terms of too much or too little bodyweight, but also on our skin, teeth, hair, digestion and sleep. Relationships, work and education also suffer as we retreat into ourselves, hiding our bodies or our eating habits.
Spending time focusing specifically on body issues in the group allows space to find new solutions, understand unhelpful patterns and put the past behind us.
What Will Happen In The Group?
The Body Group is an hour long group with therapy and educational components. Each group includes time for group members to bring up topics and get support with individual concerns as well as covering some key information and skills on issues such as coping with emotions, understanding food choices, identifying body beliefs and building self compassion.
