Accept Yourself group therapy header

Learn to live a better life, today, in the body you have.

Are you concerned about your weight? Do you feel like you have been stuck on the diet merry-go-round for many years? Do you suffer from low self-esteem or depression as a result of these weight concerns? Do you feel like your weight is holding you back from the life you want to be living? 

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, the Accept Yourself! group may be for you. Birch Tree Psychotherapy offers this group online and at both our downtown Chicago and South Barrington locations. The Accept Yourself! framework is an evidenced-based treatment developed by psychologist Margit Berman for people with depression and weight concerns. This approach combines Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Health At Every Size (HAES) treatment approaches. In this group you will learn to:

  1. Accept your body the way it is
  2. Care for your body in a way that helps move you toward the life you want
  3. Live a life that is more congruent with your core values
