Recovery program | Emerging

Emerging is an six-week program that encourages and helps you to re-engage with your healthy self.

As you develop positive thoughts and feelings about your body and food, this program will help you find new inspiration towards wellness and renewed hope for recovery from a body image issue or eating disorder.

It includes topics such as:

  • The stages of change
  • Intuitive eating
  • Relaxation and self-care
  • Body image
  • Boundaries

All sessions are safe, supportive, practical and recovery-focused. Each week you will build upon skills developed in prior weeks, creating a strong foundation of internal resources which you can call on as needed through your recovery journey.

Butterfly’s Emerging program is open to any individual 18 years or over who is experiencing an eating disorder and who wants to recover. For the safety and well-being of all attendees, we do set some minimum wellness criteria.
