your unerring positivity, your calmness.. your skill, your knowledge and true EMPATHY(!) lifted the darkness and I am sure made everyone feel SO much better. I feel more positive today than I have for ages.
I would thoroughly recommend this course to other carers wherever they are on their journey of supporting a loved one with and ED. Thank you EDNE.
The course exceeded my expectations ! ..Excellent practical examples.. Feels empowering to have these tools…
I’ve really appreciated the help I’ve been given at EDNE, I didn’t feel like I was just there as a client who just needed to get to the end of their sessions. I actually felt heard and understood.
I was given permission to feel. Instead of being a person with an eating disorder, I was a person who could feel feelings’
‘It was not just putting a plaster over something, it was about healing it. I can’t describe how it feels to have switched my mindset, after 50 years it is mind-blowing’
..entire process has been incredibly supportive and empathetic, giving me the support I needed to move forwards.
‘I couldn’t have managed without coming here. I genuinely think this place has kept me alive. I have a sense of hope now.’
EDNE was friendly welcoming and flexible
EDNE started me thinking about what resilience is and how I could manage day to day and have strategies’
‘..has given me life-changing help. They’ve helped me overcome the barriers. It’s been about unravelling decades.
The counselling has been a big turning point and the support from EDNE has been amazing.
Eating distress ..is such a secretive thing. This has been the first time I didn’t feel alone with it.
It has literally changed the quality of my life.
The EDNE counsellor’s the only person who has helped me.. the big high walls have come down
Once I got through the door it was easy. They didn’t judge. EDNE helped me to get to be this new person. The old one never looked up and never spoke.
I used to block out feeling with food, it’s not like that now’
The counselling sessions were absolutely amazing and life-changing.
You think you’re the only person in the world. Now I’ve found out I’m not the only one.
