Description

The day programme provides the residents and community based clients, from the Wellington region, with an intensive programme of psychotherapy, group work, recreation, gentle exercise, meals and support, 5 days a week. It is run in a supportive environment to assist people with eating disorders to regulate and normalise eating behaviours and address underlying issues.

The programme includes a range of therapies, which are aimed at helping clients to understand their own issues more fully. These enable individuals to challenge social values and belief systems and to realise self-healing. Using small group sessions the day programme looks at past and present behaviours as well as coping strategies. It builds on previous skills and introduces new ways of coping. The programme is designed to support the individual through peer and staff support.

The number of days each client attends is flexible and will be decided in consultation with the individual and staff.
