A Practioner’s Tool
We appreciate how challenging it must be to feel you are unable to immediately alter the course of someone’s experience of an eating disorder.
Wednesday’s Child has been designed to ensure that a GP or a supporting health professional can feel truly ‘enabled’ within their care of someone in the community.

Our programme of delivery is carefully considered, based on lived experience, and draws on a network of exceptional experts and specialists able to input proactively into the lives of those suffering.

How we help

We act as an enabler for the great many GPs, nurse practitioners, therapeutic specialists and emergency medicine staff, who want to have more insight into this devastating illness – and at the same time be able to do something to make a difference to those they care for.

We sit neatly with the new Social Prescribing approach to community medicine, bringing new ways in which you can signpost a sufferer or their family.

Passionate about educating those in the profession, we also offer various training courses and opportunities to help you accelerate your understanding of this mental health illness.


Some of the ways we can support you and your patients are:

Coaching

Individual empathetic support is something we can all benefit from - particularly now. While we can’t hold your hand in person, this era of social distancing still allows us to support through online sessions with our eating disorders psychologist, guided recovery coaching, and phone-based befriending or advice.
