Why you DON’T NEED a therapist in eating disorder recovery

Are you tired of feeling alone in your struggles with an eating disorder? Do you find yourself constantly battling negative thoughts and behaviors around food and your body? Is something you believed you controlled now controlling your life?

If you are constantly dieting, restricting, compensating, and tightly controlling your food intake; if you are consumed by calories and numbers and food labels; if you are feeling stuck, you have come to the right place. You are not alone. And the good news is that you don't have to go through this journey by yourself!

    For a moment, imagine never counting another calorie in your life… without anxiety or fear. 
    Imagine eating what you crave and when you crave it, without overanalysing this choice and without experiencing incapacitating guilt as a result. 
    Imagine sitting down for a meal with friends, looking into the mirror with a smile, and living a life beyond the eating disorder.

    It is possible. Really.

    As the video describes, there's therapists, coaches, dieticians, retreats, and so much more, all at your fingertips to help guide and support you through the recovery journey. And no one option is better than another (per se), but it ultimately comes down to you and your preferences and your motivators.

    So today I just want to tell you this: I’m here for you. I'm here for you, I have been through it all myself, and I have the expertise and the experience to guide you through your journey too. And, yes, I am just one of the many options out there. But if you vibe with my energy, if you trust my guidance, if you are open to this journey... you are already halfway there.

    Personally, I never got on with conventional therapy, and it is only once I experimented with alternative approaches and coaching that my progress skyrocketed. As a result, I really want you to know that if what you're doing currently is not working... it's no the only way!

    One-on-one coaching can be an incredibly powerful tool, providing you with all of the following benefits:
    1. Personalized support: One of the biggest benefits of one-on-one coaching is that it's tailored specifically to your needs. A skilled coach will work with you to understand your unique challenges and develop a personalized plan to help you achieve your goals. This level of personalized support can be incredibly valuable, particularly when you're dealing with something as complex as an eating disorder.
    2. Accountability: Another important benefit of coaching is that it provides you with a level of accountability that you may not have on your own. Your coach will be there to help you stay on track, to encourage you when you're struggling, and to celebrate your successes with you. This level of accountability can be a powerful motivator and can help you stay committed to your recovery goals.
    3. Expert guidance: Recovery can be a difficult journey, and it can be hard to know where to turn for help. One-on-one coaching can provide you with expert guidance and support from someone who has been there before. Your coach can help you navigate the ups and downs of recovery, provide you with evidence-based strategies and tools, and offer you the benefit of their experience and knowledge.
    4. Non-judgmental support: Finally, one-on-one coaching provides you with a safe, non-judgmental space to explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors around food and your body. Your coach will be there to offer you compassion, understanding, and support, without judgment or criticism. 
    Don't let me dictate your decision, but use this knowledge to acknowledge your options. There's no reason (and no excuse) to remain stuck.

    If you’re ready to put in the effort, if you're ready to put in the work, and if you're looking for a coach to support you in your eating disorder recovery journey, find someone you trust, someone who has your best interests at heart, and someone who has the skills, knowledge and experience to help you reach lasting success.
