An eight-session weekly group course for sufferers of all types of eating disorder, and those who care for them
The course is non-threatening, educational, and encourages a self-help approach that really works.
It is run by trained volunteers who care about those who struggle with eating disorders. Some have been sufferers themselves, or have cared for them.
Eating disorders are often a symptom of deeper problems and, whilst this is not an in-depth course to discover and deal with these underlying issues fully, it goes a long way to equipping participants with real understanding and coping strategies.
The course is accredited by the University of Brighton. It is based on Christian principles and, while not actively promoting the Christian faith, includes a church supplement for use in a Christian context. It is therefore adaptable for and sensitive to those of all faiths or none.
