As part of her BA (Hons) Integrative Counselling Degree, Aurelia undertook a work-based learning project and stakeholder analysis to understand the limitations of local services on supporting individuals diagnosed with binge eating disorder (BED). This resulted in a Pilot Therapeutic Group being organised and run by Aurelia and supported by Bristol Mind, the Mental Health Charity. The outcome of the Pilot Group confirmed the need for individuals diagnosed with binge eating disorder, to be able to access therapeutic group support as well as 1-2-1 support.
