Welcome to the Eating Problems Service

If you are concerned about how you use food or about your body
image, you have taken an important and positive step by visiting this website today.

How we can help

At the Eating Problems Service, we understand the anxieties that many people feel about what they eat, their weight, or their body image. We know how these concerns can blight lives - and lead to binge eating, bulimia, anorexia or even self-harm. Which is why we specialise in giving support and help to people like yourself, and your family and friends.

The National Network of professionals who work for the Eating Problems Service are fully-qualified psychotherapists and counsellors, who are deeply committed to helping clients with eating problems and disorders. We also have exercise specialists and nutritionists who provide further support and advice as required.

Individual counselling and workshops

It is important that you get the right kind of help for your particular situation. Contact us, and we will help you decide whether individual counselling or a one-day workshop would be of greatest benefit.

The Body Project

"My eating disorder put me a very dark and isolated place. I didn't talk to anyone and I didn't like myself. It's really important to find someone you can trust and talk to them. That is why I feel The Body Project is so important." - Melanie C
