Eating disorders are treatable and a full recovery for you is possible

Eating distress might leave you feeling trapped, confused, isolated or stuck in an endless cycle, unsure how to break free. At EDNE we understand how a difficult relationship with food and/or your body can negatively impact your wellbeing.

We are here to listen and to provide you with the space and support you need to start or maintain that journey toward recovery.

We are open, welcoming, compassionate and non-judgmental

We will work with you as a whole person, not your condition or symptoms. We will listen to you, respect your dignity and provide a safe space for you to feel validated.

By visiting this page you have just taken the first step in that journey.

Make EDNE part of your journey to recovery

We offer the choice of 1-to-1 confidential counselling, groups and resources to help you find your road to recovery.  You don’t need a diagnosis to access our services.

The following films tell the stories of 4 different people as they realise that they are living with eating distress and then as they take their first steps toward recovery.

Watch the videos below to learn how some people living with eating distress started their journey toward recovery.

From First Signs to Recovery

Our First Steps films tell the stories of 4 different people to help you recognise the signs and symptoms

of eating distress/disorder and so to be able to take the First Step.

Our message of hope to you is that recovery is always possible and people here share their own recovery journeys
