Eating difficulties support group

The sessions will run every Thursday from 7-8.30pm and are open to anyone who has difficulties with food and body image. The sessions are run by group facilitators who are students who have been trained for the role. They're a place where people should feel free to talk about whatever is important to them at the time. The focus of the sessions is always pro-recovery and are run to provide support and motivation alongside treatment. You can talk as much or as little as you want and can always bring moral support. The sessions are safe, supportive and non-judgemental spaces.
