VACANCY: Committee Member - Glasgow and West Eating Disorder Networking Group

PLANNING GROUP COMMITTEE MEMBERS WANTED for Glasgow & West Eating Disorders Networking Group


Glasgow & West Eating Disorders Networking Group is a networking, ideas, discussion and interest group for anyone in Scotland with a professional interest in eating disorders. 

Please note this is NOT a support group for those experiencing eating disorders. It will also be separate from the other services we provide (e.g. CBT, psychotherapy, counselling, coaching, groups, mental health consultations, supervision, training etc.)

A group of us started a similar network group in 2012 and it continued until 2016. This was for anyone interested in eating disorders either in a professional capacity from different parts of Scotland, who would like to network, meet for discussions, gatherings, focus groups, social activities, events and lots more.

We are now re-launching and re-naming the networking group in 2019 and now looking for some new Plann…

#FridayFacts: The Emotional Cup

It's been a busy day so far and this week's 'facts' are a bit later than usual. That's life though. This week's facts look at 'The Emotional Cup'.
It's really important that we do what we can as parents, teachers, aunties and uncles, grandparents, friends, healthcare staff and as any other significant person in a child's life, to help ensure their 'Emotional Cup' is filled, as much as it possible. Why? Because being soothed appropritely, being taken seriously, having feelings and experiences validated, being made to fee worthy and important and knowing that someone cares for them and they feel protected helps a child build their self-esteem and self-compassion, helps grow their identity, values and self-worth, helps them to manage and regulate feelings and emotions more appropriately and ensures they are more resilient and able to deal with stress, loss, conflict, distress and much more in the future, as adults.
We see so many …

#MondayMotivation: It's Never Too Late to Start Over Again

This week's #MondayMotivation is a poem by F.Scott Fitzgerald (one of my favourite authors).
For what it's worth it's never too late to start over again, no matter what age you are. Many of our clients have 'started again' in their 40s, 50s and 60s and while change was a bit scary and daunting for them, undoubtedly, their lives improved.
Hope you like the poem below.
Have a good day, Alexandra

#MondayMotivation: Body Image

Every Monday, we post some 'motivation': this could be a quote, picture, activity, story, articles etc. This week's 'motivation' involves body image (see picture below).
If you need some support with negative body image, body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) or any other distress or difficulties with how you feel about yourself, your self-esteem and maybe identity, please feel free to get in touch with us to find out how we can support you through therapy, counselling and CBT.
Best wishes, Alexandra

Friday Facts: Stress

Every Friday we'll post some 'facts' and information about mental health and wellbeing. The topic and focus of 'facts' will vary from week-to-week. This week's 'facts' focus on the effects of stress on the body. See poster below.
If stress is disrupting your life, causing you distress, getting in the way of other things in life or causing you problems, why not get in touch with us to find out how we can help with this.
Stress can affect our eating, drinking habits, exercise, sleep, work/life balance, relationships, sex drive, thoughts and feelings, ability to cope, motivation and a whole host of other things.
However, it doesn't have to be like that. Our therapists and counsellors can help you get back on track. Our practitioners are all friendly, understandng, supportive and very experienced and qualified. They are there to listen and support you, at your pace.
Feel free to get in touch with us: * * www.ea…
