A Virtual Retreat For Those Seeking Eating Disorder Recovery
You are ready for change; you want to get help and you want to heal, but months can go by feeling lost, left alone to navigate your own thoughts and behaviours around eating, food and body image.
Accessing a treatment facility in a timely manner can be a frustrating and lengthy ordeal and dangerous to your health! Eating Disorder treatment centres across Canada are lacking funding, strategy and resources to fully and quickly service the ever-increasing population of eating disorder patients across the spectrum. Wait lists are months long.
If you are on a wait list for one of these programs, what do you do in the interim to manage your’s or your loved one’s ED symptoms?
At Under The Lilac Tree, our intention is to support you in your recovery journey.
With a peer support worker/yoga teacher and registered dieticians, there is hope in managing this illness while you wait for the medical and mental health interventions you need. We design online, virtual programs unique and applicable to your individual experience that includes:
- Weekly 1:1 coaching
- Nutritional counseling
- Guided relaxation, gentle movement and self-massage
- Ongoing email access and support
Our ultimate role in this process is in harm reduction, helping you manage your ED symptoms while you wait for your entrance to an inpatient program.
Under The Lilac Tree is a space of respite, an anchor of compassion, of hope and of guided self-care while you navigate the struggles of your eating disorder.
