Eating Matters is a Norfolk charity offering counselling for people with mild to moderate eating disorders in the community.
Our team of specialist therapists and counsellors delivers a range of psychological approaches, with an emphasis on early intervention.
We aim to provide a welcoming, safe, non-judgemental environment at our base in the heart of Norwich.
We endeavour to assess all new clients within two weeks of initial contact.
However, please be aware that due to a large increase in client referrals, our current waiting time for one-to-one counselling is approximately 12 weeks.
We have free places available on our 2018 Therapeutic Workshops For Emotion-driven Overeating, funded by Healthy Norwich – Health & Wellbeing Innovation Grants.
Please see our Workshops page for more information and to find out if you’re eligible.
“Eating Matters is the one place where I can feel myself and be accepted. Regardless of how I feel, Eating Matters welcomes me like a friend with a listening ear. The staff and volunteers have taken great time and trouble to gradually get to know me. They have gained my trust (and that’s not easy).”
“Amazing staff that really understand and listen. Really helpful, they work at your pace, not theirs. Very kind and accommodating, I always feel better afterwards. The staff have helped me keep on the straight and narrow”
“It was really difficult getting help for an eating disorder I had had for years. Finally, someone understood and I am beginning to understand how I can get better. I couldn’t have done that without someone spending time hearing what I needed to say.”
“These are people who understand the seemingly crazy thoughts and voices going through your head relating to food and body image. They have heard it all before and they ‘get it’. If you need specialised, different types of help, they can do that too.”
“Eating Matters is where I’ve found hope when I’d almost lost it. Thank you!”
