The HelpFinder is an online directory of eating disorder services. It allows individuals to find specific types of local support.

If you'd like to be listed on the HelpFinder, you can find out more information on our advertising page. If you know a counsellor, thereapist or organisation that you think should be listed on the HelpFinder, also feel free to get in touch - we're always looking to make the site more comprehensive and a better experience for our users.

The HelpFinder lists a wide variety of organisations and individuals. We currently list:

  • Private counsellors/therapists
  • NHS organisations
  • Indepedent treatment centres
  • Charities/voluntary groups
  • Beat self-help groups
  • Counselling centres
  • Beat emotional overeating support groups

Build a web presence

With over 19,000 pageviews and 2,500 unique visitors a month, the HelpFinder has more traffic than any other eating disorder help directory. Beat also has very strong Google search results, being the third result behind Wikipedia and the NHS for "eating disorders".

Find individuals and sufferers relevant to you

Other online directories attract users who aren't usually looking for specific eating disorder help. The HelpFinder team is devoted to connecting sufferers and recoverers with services that can help them. You can be certain that you won't be buried under the results of non-relevant services.
