Eating Disorders

We can develop unhelpful behaviours associated with food that act as a coping strategy for difficulty situations, emotions and thoughts. Seeking support for an eating disorder is really important and we advise talking to your GP about your relationship with food whilst also using the helpful information provided on this page.
