An eating disorder is a medical diagnosis based on your eating patterns, the effects these have on your body, and the psychological factors connected with this. It is possible for someone’s symptoms and diagnoses to change over time, for example, from anorexia nervosa to bulimia nervosa.
Eating Distress is any relationship with food which you find difficult. It may not have a diagnosis but can be as hard to live with as a diagnosed disorder.
As a small charity, we rely on the amazing generosity of the public to allow us to continue our work. Every donation is noticed and appreciated, and allows us to really make a difference in someone’s life – by helping to provide specialised one to one counselling sessions to people who would otherwise not be able to access them, run our support groups, and provide training so people can spot the signs of eating distress and help others seek the support they need as early as possible. We use Local Giving as our donation platform, and any contribution enables us to continue providing our supportive services for people struggling with anxiety around food
