Ready to start your journey?
Visit our Referral Page and fill out our form as best you can, mentioning you wish to access our Private Counselling service. Once we have received your form, someone from our team will contact you to provide you a bit more information on this service. We understand what it takes to make a referral so we aim to ensure this process is quick so we can help you promptly.
We’ll get you booked you in and gather a little more information from you to learn more about your eating difficulties. This is to make sure our service are appropriate and what you need right now (but don’t worry, if we’re not the best fit for you, we will help you find a more appropriate service!) Once we have what we need from you, we’ll get started on that road to recovery, with regular reviews throughout your sessions to ensure you are making progress and feeling the benefits of this service.
Important: Please note that First Steps ED services are for people with mild to moderate eating disorder and comorbid mental health issues. We do not provide a crisis or emergency service. Following support from a crisis team, we require 12 weeks from your discharge date before making a referral into our services unless a professional referral is made by Integrated Community Services (ICS). If you need help for a mental health crisis or emergency, please visit the NHS website, contact your GP or for immediate assistance call 999.
