Contact a hotline for eating disorder and body image issues in Wales today

If you're always disatisfied with the way your body looks and you've tried to control how it looks in harmful ways, then you may have an eating disorder. There are 2 hotlines in Wales that help with body image and eating problems. If these symptoms sound familiar, reach out for free support:

  • Lying to others about whether you have eaten so you can skip meals.
  • Over-exercising as an attempt to control weight and make up for eating too much.
  • Excessive thinking about food, eating, and body weight or shape.
  • Mood swings due to hormonal imbalances and nutritional deficiences.
  • Trying to control your body weight/shape by vomiting, laxative abuse, or excessive exercise.
  • Comparing your body shape and/or weight to others.
  • Poor circulation that causes cold hands and feet.
  • Eating large portions of food and being unable to control yourself or extreme food restriction.

You may feel like you have to hide your eating and body image issues. You may feel ashamed or guilty for having bad thoughts about your body and for using harmful behaviors to control your weight. The prospect of telling someone about what you're experiencing can be scary.

You may be nervous to call a helpline in Wales because you're worried about how the person on the other line may react. These fears are completely normal. What's important to know is that helpline staff are well trained and they will treat you with compassion and understanding.
