Emotions Anonymous

Emotions Anonymous (EA)

Emotions Anonymous is a self-help support group based on the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Members come together to share their experiences — good and bad — their strengths and weaknesses, hopes and needs with other members.

We have not found it helpful to place labels on any degree of illness or health.

Our aim is to help anyone with any emotional problem get their emotions back under control so they can make healthy choices in life.

At EA we do not give advice or counsel. We neither endorse nor oppose use of any medication or therapy but encourage each member to adhere to the advice of their physician.

Our goal is to provide a warm and caring atmosphere where individuals can feel free to share their concerns and to hear of the progress of their peers, which is an extremely important element in the healing process.

Requirements for Membership of EA

The only requirement for membership in Emotions Anonymous is a desire to become well emotionally.

There are no dues or fees for EA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.

Emotions Anonymous is not allied with any sect, denomination, political organisation or institution.

EA does not wish to engage in any controversy; it neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to become emotionally well.
