Counselling


Testimonials

"Thank you so much for all your help over the past few months. I’ve never been comfortable enough to open up about my eating struggles so honestly and detailed to anybody (including other professionals!) like I have been able to with you and I can’t put into words how much I appreciate all the support, kindness and time you have given me through a really difficult period. Whoever has you as their therapist next is very lucky 😊"

I have been a health professional for twenty years and I learned something in this session. This training is second to none. Very high quality

I’d put the session at the top of all the training we’ve had from the statutory and voluntary sectors. This was the best and made the most difference in our working knowledge

Wealth of information and excellent trainer

In the end we thought: ‘Wow’. It had helped us to feel the feelings. The content was fabulous. It’s the only training I’ve been on where we learnt from what we did, not the notes that we took.

Health and Wellbeing Sessions

I actually came off the session feeling I'm genuinely not alone in the types of thoughts I have. Useful tips given right through the session which I will hold on to.  Thank you

The group is helping me to open up and have a more open mind, to feel supported.

Give as you live logo

As a small charity, we rely on the amazing generosity of the public to allow us to continue our work. Every donation is noticed and appreciated, and allows us to really make a difference in someone’s life – by helping to provide specialised one to one counselling sessions to people who would otherwise not be able to access them, run our support groups, and provide training so people can spot the signs of eating distress and help others seek the support they need as early as possible. We use Local Giving as our donation platform, and any contribution enables us to continue providing our supportive services for people struggling with anxiety around food
