060 Fighting Anorexia – My Top 7 Recovery Tips

by Anne-Sophie

in Podcast


In this episode of Fighting Anorexia, I share my top 7 recovery tips with you. I was inspired by Julie Parker’s amazing book “My Recovery” because many of the suggestions shared in this book resonated strongly with me and my own experience.

My Top 7 Recovery Tips

  1. Explore your creative side
  2. Embrace Imperfection
  3. Don’t diet and eat intuitively
  4. Don’t be ashamed to ask for professional help. Ever.
  5. Separate yourself from your eating disorder
  6. Let Love in and cultivate Self-Love
  7. Know that recovery is not linear and take one step at a time

You can find me on aMINDmedia.com and you can check out my new podcast. Also, be sure to check out the 28 Loving Reawakenings, the Body Image Revolution Course, the True Beauty Mastermind Program and so much more. All can be found on aMINDmedia. I am not going anywhere, I’m just moving on. I hope you’ll move with me.

Like I said, the new podcast will focus on self-empowerment and that is something that is crucial for recovery as well.

Thank you for everything and please never forget that you are beautiful, worthy and deserving.

Hi…I came across your blog and story and it really touched me…. I wanted to reach out because I am a singer/songwriter and have a new song and music video I would like to share.. called “Fading Away”. I wrote this song because I have a couple of friends who have battled with depression and eating disorders. I was trying to convey my personal agony in dealing with this…and also the helplessness felt by friends and family when they watch their loved one fade away. It was recently nominated for “Video of The Year” by Limelight Magazine (see info below) If there is any chance you could use this for your page or blog…that would be amazing. I want to help spread the word and hopefully encourage others to get help early on. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rx1tPIEXNAA

* if you like the video and my music please go to http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/limelightmagazinereaderspoll (Nominated for Video of The Year & Country Artist of The Year”)
….voting ends January 25th @ 11:45PM

I hope my video helps people to understand the depth and severity of eating disorders and the toll it can take on a family.

I completely beat my anorexia. My starvation almost cost me my life. I now run my own counselling service in Derbyshire and I specialise in working with eating disorders. In the UK the level and quality of support and treatment for eating disorders is shockingly low. Please check out my website and blog at derbyshirecounsellingservice.com pass on my details to anyone you know out there with an ED oe an interest in EDs. Please get in touch if you would like to talk. I sincerely believe that as a counsellor and as a sufferer of an ED that i can help understand, empathise and help others in a way that few other professionals are able to.
I need all the help I can to get my counselling service off the ground. So any publicity would be appreciated. There is absolutely no specialised help in this part of the country for eating disorders. The NHS are not allowed as yet to directly hire counsellors from the private sector. Consequently it is difficult to make yourself known to the ED community.
All the best.

Just managed to drift upon your comment here, and thankfully you have a twitter, so its much easier for me to spread the word. I do not live in the UK, but I do know plenty who do, so Im gonna try to hook you up. So fingers crossed, expect some follows! Congratulations on your recovery too, I have faith that you’ll continue to do wonderful work having experienced EDs first-hand. The world needs more people like you! xx
