Background to Eating Disorder Recovery (OED) Courses
OED (Overcoming Eating Disorders) courses were set up by Helena Wilkinson and Nikki Cole over 20 years ago while they were running Kainos Trust, which merged in 2004 with Swansea City Mission. The unique approach and setting of Nicholaston House, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, has resulted in many transformed lives; a number of those who have made a full recovery are now on team as volunteers.
Helena Wilkinson is a writer, trainer, and equine - facilitated psychotherapy practitioner (EFP). She is the author of 11 books, including the bestsellers, ‘Puppet on a String’, an autobiographical account of her fight with, and recovery from, anorexia, and ‘Beyond Chaotic Eating’, a way out of anorexia, bulimia and compulsive eating. Helena has worked with eating disorder sufferers for the last 30 years.

‘God’s House’ is a detailed account of how Nicholaston House came into existence by the man who had the vision and was given instruction direct from God.
In 1990 God unmistakably led Sue and Derrick Hancock to Swansea to see a vision fulfilled which God had given them some years previously. The booklet (A5, 53 pages, colour) gives a brief factual account of what God did and is doing. It has been written for two reasons - to give glory to God and to show what very ordinary people can do when they step out in faith with God. 'All that we have accomplished, You have done for us' - Isaiah 26 v 12.
