 More about the tastelife course

An eight-session weekly group course for sufferers of all types of eating disorder, and those who care for them.

The tastelife course is non-threatening, educational, and encourages a self-help approach that works.

It is run by trained and accredited volunteers who care about those affected by eating disorders. Some have been sufferers themselves, or have supported them. Eating disorders are often a symptom of deeper problems and, while this is not an in-depth course to discover and deal with these underlying issues fully, it goes a long way to equipping participants with real understanding and coping strategies.

The course uses interactive and motivational methods to explain how to make changes in small steps toward health and wholeness. Its unique approach brings carers and sufferers together in an accepting environment where change is made possible. It is an experience that offers sufferers and carers a way forward and puts the steering wheel firmly in the hands of the sufferer.

The course session titles are:

  1. Living to eat or eating to live
  2. Mirror, mirror: self-image and addiction
  3. Under the iceberg: emotions
  4. Mind matters
  5. Bad days and good friends
  6. Caring beyond survival
  7. The ‘F’ word: food – friend or foe?
  8. Where now?
