Because anorexia doesn’t just affect the sufferer, please note that support is also available to parents, carers, family or friends.
It’s difficult to watch anyone close to you struggle, but when any efforts to help are rejected, it can become even more worrying and frustrating. When everything you say, seems to make things worse and you’re not sure what to do. You might even be feeling powerless, guilty and angry?
I offer group or 1:1 sessions where you can learn to understand more:
Why a person has anorexia
What it’s like living with anorexia
Why it is so difficult to recover
How it can affect your own health
How to deal with your own issues and emotions (feeling helpless, frustrated, scared, anxious, anger, guilty, etc)
Useful methods of help
How you can communicate and help more effectively
I offer a safe, confidential space where you are supported and are free to ask as many questions as you like.
If you’re desperate for someone to access help but they are unwilling just now, I can teach you my approach so that you can introduce it to them, to help them take that first step.
Anorexia can be very good at isolating people. Don’t feel that you have to struggle alone, contact me now.
