What people are saying:
“This app is very easy to use, very sensitively put together. It can be used flexibly based on what stage of recovery you are at.”

What is Beanbag Health?Beanbag is a new digital app for recovery from eating, exercise, and body image issues. The app has been built by a small, passionate team with lived experience of eating and body image issues and supporting people with mental health issues. Supporting Beanbag is our clinical advisory board and many experts in the field (both scientific and medical).
How does Beanbag work?We have adapted Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Enhanced (CBT-E), a form of therapy that has a strong scientific evidence base for effectively addressing eating, exercise and body image issues. CBT-E is recommended for use within the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) but adults can wait years to see a CBT-E professional in the NHS. We’re here to reduce that time and make CBT-E accessible to those who need it the most. The Beanbag app is made with the help of a range of experts from clinical practice, academia and people with lived experience. We’re constantly updating the app and tweaking the modules based on the latest behavioral science and feedback from users so that you get the most benefits out of the program.
Who is it for?The app is for everyone who is experiencing issues with eating, exercise or body image issues. We have designed the app to be as inclusive as possible. The app is suitable for all ages from 16 years old and for all genders. You do not have to be under- or overweight or have a body-mass index outside the normal range. You do not have to have any kind of diagnosed condition. It can be beneficial regardless of whether this is the first time you have struggled with these issues or if you have been struggling for many years.
I am a clinician and interested for my patients.We'd love you to hear from you and get your feedback! Our app is suitable for individuals 16+ with mild to moderate cases (such as those on the NHS' waitlist) or step down support. Please get in touch with us for a demo at email@example.com.
