In this FREE 6 weeks support group we will work through the 5 principles of EDIT. This group is not just for people with eating disorders. Anyone that feels they need to improve their relationship with food is welcome. I am a certified level ll Eating Disorder Recovery Coach and look forward to hosting this group. 5 Principles of EDIT: Love Your Self – today, no matter what you weigh! From this place of Self-Love, you’ll naturally take better care of yourself – and a healthy weight can be a natural outcome. You’ll discover that you are much more than your body, finding compassion for your “flaws,” and inspiration from your “hidden” assets. Let your true values lead you to your True Self! Be True To Your Self – trust intuition, your answers are within! Your intuition is that “gut feeling” or a “sixth sense,” which goes beyond your logical mind. You’ve probably listened to your intuition to guide relationship decisions, or career choices – but what about eating, exercise, and the achievement of a healthy weight? Discover how to use Intuitive Eating and Intuitive Exercise as your guides! Give To Your Self – nurture by feeding your true hunger! Think about all of the different ways you give to others – your friends who need assistance, your work with endless to-do lists, your family who depends on you. Are these activities fulfilling? Or, do you seek FULL-FILLment by consuming excess food? Discover your true needs, and how to meet them with regular practices of Self-Care! Express Your Self – balance mood instead of coping with food! Feeling stressed or depressed? Eating can be a way to deal with intense emotions. However, “feeding” your feelings can actually make things worse – with additional feelings of frustration, guilt, or shame. Break the food-mood cycle by discovering new and more effective ways to regulate your emotions! Believe In Your Self – act as if you are free and so it shall be! Imagine a day in the life of the person you will be when you are practicing the first four principles in your daily life. Notice how you feel from the “inside-out”– spiritually, emotionally, mentally, physically. In this fifth principle, you’ll bring your visions of success into reality, one day at a time. Ongoing success is easy! Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT) is the treatment approach developed by Dr. Dorie McCubbrey, PhD, MSEd, LPC, LAC, CEDS – it has been used in clinical practice for more than 20 years, and it is based on five principles which Dr. Dorie learned as a result of her own journey of recovery from eating disorders. EDIT involves a shift from the voice of the eating disorder (ED) to the healing wisdom of the Intuitive Therapist (IT), facilitated by ED-IT dialogues with an EDIT Certified practitioner. This comprehensive method guides clients to improve body image, make peace with food through intuitive eating, develop healthy coping skills, enhance overall Self-Care, learn how to prevent relapse – and much more. The overall outcome is “complete recovery” – where the individual is free of eating disorder behaviors, and has reconnected with their True Self.
