Having recovered from anorexia and bulimia, I know what it's like to live with an eating disorder, and also how difficult it is to reach out for help. You may not be able to imagine a future without the eating disorder. Part of you may 'want out' but the other wants to hold on tightly because you fear the unknown and being out of control. You fear being fat more than anything. You struggle to think of anything else and so isolate from people in order to feel safe. But you just want to feel loved and good enough. That was me too. Although I spent months in a residential eating disorder centre, when I was discharged that voice in my head still urged me to restrict and go back to old behaviours. It was only when I found EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) that I was able to deal with the root causes of the eating disorder and the fears I had, and I became free. As a qualified practitioner now, I want to reach out to you and help you achieve the same. I work with your underlying emotions rather than concentrate on food and weight. I look to get rid of the root cause so that permanent recovery is possible, rather than just ‘managing’ the eating disorder. Once the root cause(s) is eliminated, you will feel differently and better about yourself and your body. The voice in your head will quieten. You will not only feel more relaxed around food and your body, but you will feel loved, safe and in control. You will be happy and have better relationships with the people in your life. I am a qualified EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and Matrix Re-imprinting Practitioner and a member of the professional bodies, AAMET and EFTMRA. You may not have heard of these techniques, but that doesn’t matter, they are just the tools I use in order to help you, and they work incredibly well. I offer empathetic professional support, helping you towards a goal of feeling good enough, safe and loved. You will feel listened to, understood, taken seriously, feel safe and secure, and not judged. I know how difficult it can be to take the first step, either making that phone call or sending that email. I was in denial for a long time before I could admit to myself that I couldn't do this on my own. However, the earlier you get help, the better your chance of recovery. And there really is no better day to start, than today. Recovery is not easy, but it is possible and it is SO worth it! All the fears I had beforehand are no longer my fears. I can help you, every step of the way. Please get in touch.
