Norwich sessions to help over-eaters
An eating disorders charity is launching another series of workshops in Norwich to help people who overeat for emotional reasons, after it had a huge response to the first sessions it ran.
Norfolk Eating Disorders Association (Norfolk EDA) says there is a growing need to help people who are overweight or obese because of an eating disorder.
This includes people who are 'yo-yo dieters' and those who overeat for emotional reasons.
Sue Muspratt, of Norfolk EDA, said the response the charity had to its first series of sessions, held at the end of last year, was huge, and led to three very successful groups and a lot of excellent feedback. She said: 'So many people struggle with yo-yo dieting, eating in secret and thinking of food all the time.
'Our focus at Norfolk Eating Disorders Association is on feeling good, being healthy, having good self acceptance and compassion, exploring and understanding our relationships with food, looking at messages that were received in childhood, learning to cope with feelings in a different way and learning about eating mindfully.

'The triggers to overeat for emotional reasons, such as stress, are identified and it has been lovely to observe clients sharing their thoughts and feelings, making new friendships, experimenting with changes of behaviour and experiencing an increased sense of wellbeing.' Three new groups will be held at 34 Colegate, Norwich, starting on May 9. Each group will consist of a maximum of eight participants and costs �30 for six weeks.
