Face to face support groups

Support for people experiencing an eating disorder or body image issue and for their carers, friends and family.

You don’t have to face your journey alone. Get support, guidance, and connect with others who understand what you’re going through. Butterfly’s support groups are facilitated by professional clinicians who can provide skills and strategies to deal with your challenges, whether you’ve just started the journey or know the ups and downs of it well.

Our face to face support groups are open to anyone in Tasmania or NSW and are currently held on Zoom

Butterfly usually runs support groups and other support services in Crows Nest, NSW and Hobart, Tasmania but these groups are meeting on Zoom while COVID restrictions are in place.

Why join a support group?

Connect with others in a safe space

Find hope and inspiration through others’ experiences

Learn skills and strategies to develop helpful thoughts and behaviours

Not in Tasmania or Sydney area? Our Helpline runs online support groups for people anywhere in Australia.
