Rebalance Self Support Group

Positively challenging eating disorders…together.

Rebalance is a recovery focused self-support group run by BalancED MK, suitable for anyone affected by any form of disordered eating, including loved ones wanting to support recovery.

We meet on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month at the Swinfen Harris Hall, London Road, Stony Stratford, MK11 1JA, from 10am – 12pm for a minimum £2 donation per person, per session.

We also meet on the second and fourth Fridays of each month at The Rugby Ground, Northampton Road, Market Harbrorough, LE16 9HF, from 10am – 12pm for a minimum £2 donation per person, per session.

Both groups offer a friendly, welcoming environment, with sessions facilitated by experienced staff/volunteers, many of whom have recovered from an eating disorder themselves. Volunteers also include carers and mental health professionals, helping to provide a spectrum of advice and experience.

The first hour of each session is based on a subject that will aid recovery from any form of disordered eating. Topics encourage participants to consider and reflect upon their thoughts, feelings and behaviours and the actions that might help create a more balanced way of living. The second hour allows for peer support and chat, helping to minimise isolation whilst increasing understanding.

Attendees can self-refer by contacting BalancED MK by email or telephone.

The Rebalance Self-Support Group inspired the creation of the ‘Eating Disorder Recovery Handbook: A Practical Guide to Long-term Recovery’, by Dr Nicola Davies and Emma Bacon published in 2016. This empathetic handbook is a comprehensive guide through every stage of recovery, from recognising and understanding eating disorders to learning about treatment, self-help tools and practical advice for maintaining recovery long-term.

Please see www.rebalancing-me.com or www.amazon.co.uk or www.amazon.com for further information.

Rebalance has been such an amazing support for me, it has taught me so much about eating disorders and the support available to help me. It’s made me broach topics that I would never even have considered, but most of all its helped me address issues of denial, how to move forwards and also how to manage with relapse.
