Counselling

"Being supported to understand patterns of behaviours, and how to challenge these, has been possible through contact with SWEDA."

Counselling gives you the opportunity to explore issues around your eating disorder, and can help you work through the distress and difficulties that arise. It can give strategies for managing those feelings, and the opportunity to explore and manage how food is used to cope.

You may be experiencing an eating disorder. You may have recovered, yet feel the need for support. Or you may be a carer of someone with an eating disorder and feel that you need support for yourself. We offer non-judgmental help, in a comfortable and professional environment.

We offer an initial consultation to work with you to establish the most appropriate course of action. If it is agreed that one to one counselling is the right way forward, we will work with you to organise ongoing, low-cost counselling sessions, that will be regularly evaluated and reviewed together.

There is a £20 fee for an initial consultation, but please do talk to us about concessionary rates if you are a student, on low income or receiving benefits.


“Whenever I have contacted SWEDA, I have always received a very quick response, and have felt completely safe to ask for help when I have needed it. There have been periods of time when I have not needed a lot of contact, and times when I have asked for frequent contact. Talking to the same person over a long period of time has meant I have had a consistent place to go for support, and this has been invaluable."
