When you struggle with your weight, it can feel alienating and lonely. It helps to learn from each other, to hear each others’ questions and to cheer each other on. Being part of a group weight loss session helps you learn how to show kindness to yourself as you create change within a circle of safety and kindness among peers.
Each group weight loss session is led by Dr. Sample. She will facilitate questions and discussion, which play an integral role in the treatment. You may be asked to keep a journal in between sessions. (Note: Part of treating each other with kindness is respecting one another’s privacy. Confidentiality will be part of each session.)
Before your first group treatment session, you will have a phone call with Dr. Sample to personalize your care and determine if the group setting is right for you. You will discuss your values, goals and motivations, as well as your obstacles to success.
You will identify existing thought patterns, challenge their validity, and develop new patterns in line with your goals. The group setting helps you learn to treat yourself with the same kindness and compassion you would offer to a friend.
Group sessions will last 90-120 minutes and will cycle through 8 topics on a drop-in schedule. Sessions can be scheduled September, 2020!
