Eating Disorders Association (N.I.) provide a confidential weekly online support group service.
The group’s ethos is that of hope and recovery and the aim of the group is to provide a safe and contained space whereby people can open up and talk about their thoughts, feelings and experiences without fear of judgement.
Who can take part in our support groups?
Our online support group service is offered to people who are struggling with eating distress who are aged 18 and over. You do not need to have a diagnosis and you can self refer.
How do I take part in the Online Group?
Register For A Specific Group: Contact us to request a spot in our next avaialble group session and to receive our group guidelines
Attending the Group: Our trained facilitators will open the group at the stated start time. They will welcome everyone to the group and then post the ground rules (see below). We ask people to respect the groups ground rules at all times. The group is then open to allow for people to talk about how they are feeling and what is going on for them. The role of the facilitator is to enable this dialog and ensure the group is a safe space for everyone. There is no pressure to speak if you do not feel ready, it is ok to come along and simply listen and observe. The facilitators will end the group at the stated time.
If you would like more information about our support groups, please feel free to contact us at any time.
