About the LEED Research Collective

We are a group of academics, researchers, and practitioners with a shared interest in eating disorders, and we also come to this collective with our own personal lived experiences of eating disorders.

We are driven by a desire to work towards better care for those with eating disorders, and a belief that centring the voices of people with lived and living experiences of eating disorders in research is fundamental.

We draw on understandings from psychology, counselling and psychotherapy, and our work takes a critical approach that attends to individual experiences as well as the systemic and structural contexts that shape our experiences.

We aim to work towards anti-oppressive and anti-discriminatory practice in our therapeutic work and research practices.

Our research is informed by a commitment to understanding about diverse experiences of eating disorders, and a commitment to promoting care which is accessible to all who need it.
