Binge Eating Disorder in Men

I would like to invite you to participate in my research that explores the experiences of men with Binge Eating Disorder (BED).

Although existing research suggests that BED is very common in men; the vast majority of research studies on BED have been conducted only on women. It is important to understand how men experience BED and this study hopes to provide men with BED with a voice to express their experiences of having BED.

Your experiences are valuable as they can contribute to better understanding BED and can contribute to the improvement of treatment interventions for men with BED. Through you participation in this research you will have the opportunity to talk openly about your experiences. You will be reimbursed for your participation with a £10 Amazon voucher.

Participating in this research will involve an interview about your experiences of having BED and the interview will last approximately 45-60 minutes. All the information obtained will be kept strictly confidential.

My name is Spyroula Spyrou. I am a trainee Counselling Psychologist at London Metropolitan University and this study is part of the Doctoral qualification in Counselling Psychology. If you are interested in participating or you have any questions please contact me at [email protected] or 07935870762.

Thank you very much for your time

“I had consistently been losing weight for more than 8 months and had become accustomed to eating very little. This triggered a return of my anorexia, after a 20-year period of recovery. SWEDA were able to offer me an appointment the very next day. When we met I was feeling very ill and frightened.I spoke to them about my fears, but then took the decision to go to my doctor on the way home. I was admitted to hospital within a few days.”
