Emotional Eating, Monday 13th September, 2.00 - 3.00pm

If you have ever reached for a tub of ice cream after a break up then you know the feeling of emotional eating. For some of us this is only an occasional occurrence, but for others it can be a daily coping mechanism that leads to longer term health challenges. This E-clinic is designed to help you understand your relationship to food and feel more confident in processing emotions rather than turning to food.

About Inclusion Barnet

Nearly all of our directors and staff have lived experience of disability, including mental health issues and/or long-term health conditions.

We believe that learning to use our lived experience for social change is a skill. We have become experts in harnessing the lived experience of our staff, members, volunteers and the people who use our services to design and deliver higher quality, more person-centred services.
