Eating Disorder Diploma

We’re incredibly excited to announce the launch of our Eating Disorder Diploma, which will start in September 2024.

Our Diploma is designed for qualified counsellors and psychotherapists who wish to deepen their understanding of eating disorders. Whether you are looking to specialise, enhance your current practice, or support your supervisees, this program offers a comprehensive knowledge base. If you already have extensive knowledge in this area, such as completing a 6-month diploma, you may be more interested in our short courses launching in 2025.

The only prerequisite is that you are a qualified counsellor or psychotherapist. Please note, this diploma does not qualify you to practice as a counsellor or psychotherapist.

The diploma covers everything needed to work competently, safely, and ethically with clients experiencing eating disorders. Topics include:

  • Understanding all types of eating disorders, their symptoms, diagnostic criteria, and treatment pathways.

  • Working from a transdiagnostic perspective.

  • Working with a client’s unique mix of behaviours, thoughts, and emotions safely.

  • Ethics of working with clients with eating disorders.

  • Improving body image, including body dysmorphia.

  • Adapting treatment for neurodiverse clients.

The diploma lasts for a year, September-September.

Expect to commit up to 10 hours per month. Here’s a breakdown:

  • Three in-person days in Bridgwater, Somerset (one at the start and two at the end of the Diploma).

  • Monthly online modules consisting of prerecorded presentations and downloadable resources, taking 1-4 hours each month.

  • Fortnightly online reflection groups on Zoom, lasting about 2 hours.

  • Suggested reading and research, around 1-2 hours monthly.

Yes, we’ve limited the number of places on the first cohort to 12. 

Group size is expected to increase from 2025.

The cost for this cohort starts at £1200, with various payment plans available:

  1. Full payment upfront: £1200

  2. Deposit of £600, followed by £610 after three months (total £1210)

  3. Deposit of £100, followed by 11 monthly payments of £110 (total £1310)

Payments start upon booking your slot.

You can secure your place by emailing us at hello@edrecovery.co.uk.

Short Courses and CPD

We will be launching a number of short courses later in 2024 and throughout 2025. Details will be made available here as courses are announced.

Training for PTs and Fitness Professionals

We’re very excited to announce that we are in the process of writing a training course for PTs and other fitness professionals.

The course will help you to identify clients who are at risk from an eating disorder and provide you with the necessary skills to support them with their recovery.

Training for your Organisation

We’re able to provide organisation-specific training regarding eating disorders. Please email us at hello@edrecovery.co.uk to discuss your training needs.
