What you say
What you say
You think you’re the only person in the world. Now I’ve found out I’m not the only one.
The counselling sessions were absolutely amazing and life-changing.
I used to block out feeling with food, it’s not like that now’
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.
The EDNE counsellor’s the only person who has helped me.. the big high walls have come down
It has literally changed the quality of my life.
Eating distress ..is such a secretive thing. This has been the first time I didn’t feel alone with it.
The counselling has been a big turning point and the support from EDNE has been amazing.
‘..has given me life-changing help. They’ve helped me overcome the barriers. It’s been about unravelling decades.
EDNE started me thinking about what resilience is and how I could manage day to day and have strategies’
EDNE was friendly welcoming and flexible
‘I couldn’t have managed without coming here. I genuinely think this place has kept me alive. I have a sense of hope now.’
..entire process has been incredibly supportive and empathetic, giving me the support I needed to move forwards.
‘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’
I was given permission to feel. Instead of being a person with an eating disorder, I was a person who could feel feelings’
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.
