Education Presenters and Services

Sharing knowledge and services

Thank you to our education session presenters who have generously shared their knowledge and time to benefit our EDFA Community.

Learning from others with expertise in many areas of eating disorder research, evidence based treatments, adjunctive therapies and approaches which support self-care, self-belief, compassion and mindfulness, all help to provide a rich tapestry of information for families to digest and consider whether helpful for their loved one, themselves or other family members.

We are thrilled to be able to offer these education sessions, and information about these services to our members. If you are interested in reaching out for further information or to enquire about their services, you can find details below. 

As mentioned at the beginning of all our education sessions, EDFA does not endorse certain practitioners or therapies.  We work to bring a balanced array of information to our members, to increase knowledge, up-skill carers and raise awareness of options which may suit some families. 

Engaging the services of any of our speakers is at your discretion and EDFA accepts no liability in respect of these services.

Practitioners, therapists, services and more.
