If you care for someone with an eating disorder it can be hard to know what to say, or how to help, and it can feel as though there’s no one to talk to.
Our skills for carers workshops will help you understand more about eating disorders and feel more confident in your knowledge; reduce anxiety; and improve communication. We are here to support you and your loved one on a journey to recovery.
These workshops, facilitated by our Counselling Lead and Group Worker, will develop your skills, and build your resilience.
Over six weeks you’ll explore:
- Unhelpful beliefs about eating disorders
- How to cope with the caring role
- Motivational skills
- Reflective listening skills
- How to bring about change
They are open to anyone caring /supporting someone with an eating disorder. We don’t place restrictions on relationships so you might be a parent, grandparent, sibling, partner, cousin or friend.
The person you’re supporting doesn’t need to be in our services, but if you have any questions at all about whether this is right for you, please email us at the address below.
This programme is not suitable for professionals supporting people. If you are a professional and would like to be contacted when our course for professionals opens please contact us at email@example.com.
The first programme for family and friends starts on 7th December and will be held online on Thursdays between 11am and 1pm. We ask you to commit to the whole programme and will close the session after the first date, so you can build trust and connection as a group of people going through similar experiences, in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space.
