Treading on Eggshells

  • Do you care about someone who has an eating disorder?
  • Are you afraid of what to say and what not to say?
  • Feeling frustrated, alone, isolated?
  • Wishing you could share your concerns with people who understand? 

Treading on Eggshells is for you

Treading on Eggshells is a course for anyone who is caring for someone with an eating disorder. You may be a parent, friend, brother or sister, boyfriend, girlfriend or partner. Treading on Eggshells will help you to cope better and show you ways in which you can help both yourself and the person you care for.

The Maudsley Method recognises that only the person with the eating disorder can achieve recovery, but that they can’t do it alone; also – whilst professional treatment can be enormously helpful – most people with eating disorders spend much more time with their families and friends (their carers) than with professionals.  Because of these facts, both professionals and carers need to have similar skills; that is, be able to support a person with an eating disorder to develop their own motivation to achieve recovery.  It is these motivational skills that the Treading on Eggshells course teaches, whilst also helping carers to build resilience and look after themselves.

WE HOPE TO RUN ANOTHER COURSE IN SEPTEMBER 2017
