A life half lived? Ideas and inspiration for those living with an eating disorder
During this session we’ll explore the realities of living with an eating disorder and we’ll take an honest look at both positives and the negatives. We’ll explore a range of ideas designed to help us find contentment beyond calories and explore some of the barriers to getting well, what we might be able to do about them and why it’s totally worth it.

During this session we’ll dive deep into the role of those who live with, work with or care for someone with an eating disorder. We’ll consider what helps, what doesn’t and what we need to be doing to look after ourselves too.
Certificates of attendance will be sent by email after the event.
I very much look forward to seeing you all at, what promises to be, an interesting insight into the world of eating disorders.
