The festive season can cause intense stress, anxiety and uncertainty. To help you navigate the festive season, our therapists, Pippa and Linda, have teamed up and share their top tips for keeping your recovery the priority.
Eating disorders are often coined ‘family illnesses’ as they don’t impact the individual alone, but rather, touch all different family members in different ways. The festive period is an opportunity to come together, but when someone is struggling with an eating disorder, there can be added complexity to this. We spoke to our Consultant Family Therapist, Karen, for her tips.
The emphasis on food is greater during the festive season and we know that with this can come greater anxiety, especially for people in recovery for an eating disorder. To support you with this, Beth, Orri’s Specialist Eating Disorder Dietitian, shares her guidance for how to cope with food whilst maintaining your eating disorder recovery.
The holidays are on the horizon. Whilst many look forward to this time of year, for people in recovery, the festive period can present unique challenges. We’ve created a free downloadable workbook for anyone wishing to keep their recovery the priority this Christmas.
