Learn the skills to change
the way you eat

Our Workshops


At WeightMatters provide a space where you can learn more about your relationship with food, eating, weight and your body. The topics covered allow you to delve a little deeper into an area that you may be struggling with.

We believe that psycho-education is an important part of positive change and growth, and recovery from any pattern of disordered eating. The small groups (maximum 8 people) provide a safe and nurturing space to explore your relationship with eating, and to feel heard in a non-judgemental way.

Eating disorders and disordered eating can often feel shameful, embarrassing and isolating, so being able to listen and be part of a supportive group experience is often part of a transformational change.

You may be looking for support with your eating for the first time, or you may already be in therapy and feel you need to work a little deeper in the area of your weight, eating and body. Whatever your reason for attending, we will make sure we listen to what it is you need, and adapt the workshop to make sure you get what you want from the day.

We look forward to welcoming you to one of our workshops soon.
