Group Programs

The Family Health Team offers a variety of free group classes and patient education sessions.

As a patient of the Family Health Team, you have the opportunity to attend our free group classes. Patients who want to learn more information about our group classes and find out which classes are suitable for them are encouraged to speak to their family physician or an allied health professional.

Do you struggle with your eating? Do you eat for comfort, out of habit, or in response to your emotions? Craving Change is a four week workshop that focuses on the "why" of eating. It can help you discover why you eat the way you do and why it is hard to change.

  • Become more aware of your own personal problematic eating triggers.
  • Learn techniques that you can use for dealing with these triggers and for changing your eating behaviours.
  • Learn strategies that will assist you in maintaining a long-term positive relationship with food.
