About us

NIWE Eating Distress Service aims to help people in the North East whose lives are affected by eating distress, or eating disorders.

We offer a supportive, emphatic and non-judgemental environment for you to explore your eating distress. Our counsellors are all fully qualified and have experience in this area. We believe that eating distress is a way of saying that something is wrong. Therefore, we do not just respond to the symptoms but look at underlying causes.

We use the term eating distress rather than eating disorder because we want to support all
those who experience extreme anxiety around food and eating. We are aware from the
feedback we have received from people we have worked with that, whilst many have a
diagnosed eating disorder, some of those who need our support and understanding do
not feel they ‘fit’ an eating disorder category.

We offer one-to-one counselling to those over 16 with mild to moderate eating distress, who have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 17.5 and above. We also offer counselling to friends and family looking after those with eating distress.

Training, qualifications & experience

All our counsellors are qualified, hold membership with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and have experience of working with those with eating distress.
