Day service helps to keep me focused on recovery and on track with my goals.

The group environment in the day service helps me to feel less alone. I can relate to others and their experiences and we can share our hopes for recovery.
Service user
The day service groups help me to recognise there are two parts of my thoughts – my own thoughts and eating disordered thoughts. I realise the problem is not me, it is the eating disorder. This motivates me to challenge it.
Service user
The day service is a very focused intervention programme. Having a support network where we can share experiences and support techniques is helpful.

In the day service I feel I can get to the root of the eating disorder.

Having multiple groups throughout the week gives us a chance to explore a range of difficulties and topics relating to an eating disorder.
Service user
The day service groups can be a distraction from eating disordered thoughts which can be strong when I’m alone. The groups help me re-frame some of the distressing thoughts I have.
Service user
Eating with other members of the day service is helpful. I feel calmer when I eat with the group who I know who are eating similar amounts to me.

The body image group is a really big help as I can get to the root of what drives my eating disorder. Each time I come out of the group feeling more relieved.

Service user

The creative group is a good way of getting things out of my head and a good medium to express myself.

Service user
All the groups are useful. The content and topics covered are very varied which helps you to learn and understand more about yourself and your eating disorder.
