Who can take part?

To take part, you must be over 18 years of age and have accessed Guided Self-Help for binge eating disorder. Your recovery status does not affect your eligibility to take part.

What is the purpose of the research?

There is limited qualitative research exploring Guided Self Help as a therapy for Binge Eating Disorder and so this study aims to understand individuals experiences in order to identify any common themes and establish any particularly valuable aspects of guided self help therapy for treating Binge Eating Disorder.

What does the study involve?

The study will involve completing an online questionnaire about your recovery journey in order to help us identify any common factors relating to Guided Self Help that have been instrumental in overcoming binge eating disorder.

The questionnaire can be completed in your own time and you will receive information about the study beforehand and will have the opportunity to ask questions. All data will be anonymised and kept confidential and you will have the right to withdraw at any time.
