Commencing from February 2019 we will be running structured support groups for parents and carers on Monday nights. These alternate each month depending on the age of your loved one. Nourishing Parents is a 3x 2 hour program for parents of younger sufferers (aged 18 and under) who are undertaking Maudsley Family Therapy. Nourishing Carers is a 2x 3 hour program for parents, partners, adult siblings and adult children of adult sufferers and/ or younger sufferers who are not undertaking Maudsley Family Therapy. We also recommend to you our Parents and Partners Toolkit which is a useful resource you may benefit from.

Further, we host additional events periodically, including the LEAP workshop to improve your relationship with exercise, yoga and mindfulness courses and additional support services for carers. Forthcoming events below.

Recovery Talks
Jul 27 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

An intimate, small group presentation where a recovered individual shares about their eating disorder recovery. This presentation offers hope and insight to sufferers, parents, partners and health professionals trying to understand the recovery process. Our presenters are recovery champions who have volunteered to share their experience to help you. After they share their story, there will be the opportunity for a Q & A.

Given there is no one pathway to recovery, our Recovery Talks endevour to showcase a variety of eating disorder symptoms and recovery experiences. Ultimately we believe- and hope you take from our Recovery Talks- that recovery is always possible and usually occurs with through the combination of the right therapist, timing and treatment approach.

Our recovery champions are people we consider to be fully recovered. They have been educated about what may be helpful and what may be triggering for attendees to hear. Recovery Talks are moderated by at least one of our therapists.
