Christmas Preparaton with ORRI
Manage episode 349647643 series 3004577
In this weeks episode, Han is joined by Dr Joanna Silver. Joanna is the lead psychological therapist at Orri, a specialist eating disorder treatment service in London. Joanna joins us to discuss Christmas preparation, and to provide advice on navigating a number of festive concerns.
In this weeks episode, we discuss:
Common concerns that Joanna has witnessed in clients including:
The increased number of social events and how to navigate them.
Spending more time with family members.
Wanting to restrict before social events.
The urge to binge because of the quantity and types of food in the home at Christmas that may normally be avoided.
Navigating triggering conversations around food and body.
Supporting someone through eating disorder recovery as a family member or friend, and the importance of communication.
How as a loved one to make sure you have time for yourself and enjoy the things you like about the festive period too.
My main takeaway from this podcast is: do what works for you, and what makes you happy.
