They provide one to one therapeutic and practical support for people experiencing eating disorders and for families and friends. They also facilitate groups and deliver education and training sessions in schools, colleges and the wider community.

Services include:

  • Talking Therapies – these are available to people with an eating disorder as well as to friends and family members.  Their counselling team provides a number of different therapeutic approaches.
  • Occupational Therapy – to work with people with eating disorders to set practical goals and to help people engage in meaningful activities.
  • Support Groups – SYEDA offer separate support groups available for people with an eating disorder and friends and family which both take place on the first Tuesday of the month from 7.00-8.30pm.  There is no need to book or make a referral to attend – just come along. If you are attending for the first time, then the facilitators will be happy to introduce themselves and explain more about the group, you can go earlier for an informal chat.
  • Friends & Family – SYEDA offer specific support services for the friends and families of people with eating disorders, including individual therapy, a 6 week course and a support group.
