Our core eating disorder recovery programme transitioned to an online format through the Covid-19 pandemic, a time when eating disorder prevalence increased significantly.
We had to adapt quickly to continue supporting our recovery clients, as well as to comply with distancing rules. Working closely with clients, we tested new ways of working together online.
It was clear that simply replacing in-person sessions with online sessions wasn’t providing the high level of support required for recovery. We needed to offer something equal to, if not better, than the in-person support we offered before the pandemic.
As our online method developed, we were shocked that 100% of clients made the choice to continue with the online format rather than going back to in-person support.
We had created a signature three-layered support method online that was meant to be delivered online. And recovery success rates soared!
1) Regular online sessions: Powerful sessions with your eating disorder specialist take place weekly via Zoom.
2) Daily text and voice messaging: Continue to receive support in-between sessions so that you never feel alone or overwhelmed.
3) Personal recovery folder with written support: A place to collaborate with your coach, access coping tools and your recovery journal.
The three support layers offer a unique and powerful system that supports clients from start to finish. This system is provided by one of our eating disorder specialists who works closely with you through your programme.
Each of our eating disorder specialists is trained in multiple disciplines– from nutritional therapy to counselling skills to specialist coaching work. This means they can help with multiple aspects of your recovery rather than just one area.
Receiving our three-layered method from one of our multidisciplinary eating disorder specialists offers a powerful support system!
