WHAT ARE EATING DISORDERS?

“An Eating Disorder is a mental illness that causes serious disturbances to your every day diet”

Eating Disorders may include under-eating, binge eating, and/or using unhealthy behaviours which can seriously harm the individual with long term effects. Eating Disorders affect both men and women of all ages and at any time of their lives. The good news is there is life beyond an Eating Disorder and we can help you to overcome some of the practical hurdles you might be experiencing.

It will help you to set small goals and achieve them with a focus on helping you to feel more confident around everyday activities such as: food shopping, cooking and eating, as well as clothes shopping and leisure activities. It will also help you with other skills you may wish to manage.

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.”
