If you or one of your friends or family members is struggling with an eating disorder this is a must read.

I am sure most of the clients I have worked with that are overcoming anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder would agree.
I am honoured to work with such an amazing, insightful woman. Here is her poem:

|THE BRIGHT SIDE|
