Weight Management is a public health approach used to help people lose weight in a controlled way to obtain a healthier lifestyle and reduce risks associated with obesity and diabetes supplemented with education in nutrition and preparing meals to be effective and safe.
At First Steps ED we employ experienced and qualified Counsellors and Psychotherapists who offer sessions face to face and via video consultation either as part of our funded services or available for private paid support.
A positive approach to recovery is key, and with a progressive attitude you can silence the nagging voice and take control; but don’t expect never to fall again. You are allowed to have a blip, to stumble, to take a step backwards and grapple for a helping hand to find your feet again.
First Steps has been working with Derbyshire Eating Disorders Services (CEDS) since 2011 through the NHS Care Coordinator to keep people at risk of hospitalisation focused on their recovery.
First Steps was originally run by volunteers and so they have always played a very important role in keeping the charity open and able to support people struggling with eating difficulties and disorders.
