Struggling with eating and body image concerns? Contact a helpline in United Kingdom for support.

Being hyper-critical of your body may mean that you have a negative body image. Having a negative body image can escalate into disordered eating. If you're experiencing eating or body image problems, there are 9 free helplines available in United Kingdom. You may benefit from helpline support if you notice these symptoms:

  • Fear of gaining weight and becoming larger.
  • Shifting food around on your plate so it looks like you’ve eaten more than you have.
  • Withdrawal from social activities, especially ones that involve food and eating.
  • Regularly checking your body in the mirror for flaws.
  • Lying to others about whether you have eaten so you can skip meals.
  • Monitoring calories consumed very cautiously and paying close attention to food nutrition labels.
  • Dizziness and potentially fainting.
  • Feeling uncomfortable eating in front of others.

Eating disorders can be all-consuming. When you become preoccupied with controlling your weight and what you eat, other important aspects of life can fall by the wayside. It can be an extremely isolating experience.

Taking the first step to talk to someone about what you're going through is hard but the sooner you get help, the sooner you may start to feel better. When you contact a helpline in United Kingdom, a trained helpline counselor will listen to your concerns and offer you the support you need.

If you feel like you might need support with your body image or eating disorders, try reaching out to a hotline in United Kingdom. It's free and confidential.
