Support is provided using the Centre for Clinical Intervention’s “Break Free from ED” Programme, which is sent to all service users. After the sign up questionnaire is completed and you meet the criteria for the programme, you will have an assessment to help ascertain motivation to change, the frequency and impact of your disordered behaviours, any risk or safeguarding concerns, and where you are currently in terms of your recovery.
Based on this assessment, if suitable, you will be allocated to a trained Programme Officer. Thereafter, the Programme Officer will call you at the same time for 40 minutes each week. The phone calls are a supportive, safe, confidential space, with the Programme Officer acting as a sounding board and helping you to set achievable goals, and address any new issues that have arisen. You will keep a self-monitoring diary using an app, guided by their Programme Officer.
