This stems from Laura’s first-hand experience of Anorexia alongside her professional training. This support aims to improve overall wellbeing specifically focused on eating disorder recovery and mental health.
HOW LONG WILL RECOVERY TAKE?
The sessions start from 6 weeks and can be up to even a yearlong depending on the level of support and accountability a client needs.
