Presenting to NHS Professionals

I am presenting to an audience of 30+ NHS professionals from the Maudsley Clinic and Bletham Royal Hospital today, alongside one of tmaudsley-hospitalhe countries leading experts on eating disorders – Janet Treasure.

I will be speaking about my personal experiences of this terrible affliction and how it empowered and inspired me to create my own eating disorder support service and develop my recipe and self-help books to try to help others with this mental health issue.   bethlem_main_flowers

 

 

 

Do you believe in destiny?

emma boxWhen I was a child I day dreamed a lot! What would I like to do with my life? Where would I like to live? Should I travel? Do I want to marry and have children? I had no idea that I would develop an eating disorder that would go on to change the direction of my life forever. But I’m glad it did. Recovering from anorexia has taught me that life is a continual adventure, filled with exciting opportunities to evolve as a person. I’ve learnt that it’s best to live one day at a time, enjoying the moments. Yes, it’s important to plan for the future, but you can’t live in the future! Enjoy the now!
