'What's Your Hunger' offers a new approach of support for those experiencing difficulties with emotional overeating. If you struggle with controlling your eating and this is causing you distress, then our group can help. All at a cost you can afford!

'What's Your Hunger' is the combination of work by two professional therapists who passionately care about supporting people with problem eating issues. For the past 3 years we  have run groups and courses that help people free themselves from the pain and suffering emotional eating can cause them. We have a 'non-profit approach' which aims to make this affordable to all. We work in partnership with the NHS and other local health organisations based in the Bournemouth and Poole area.

We are all unique and our roads to recovering from this issue will vary, this is why we have decided to offer a  rolling weekly group format which gives each of you the time and support you need to free yourself from your eating problems. 

Please email and let us know if you are keen to attend. We will then reserve your space and send you a quick assessment form for you to complete. As professionals we want to be sure that our group is right for you at this time. The form will help us to provide you with the best support we can offer.
