We are delighted that this former patient wants to share this: “At the beginning of my treatment at Ellern Mede, I was in a position where I hadn’t been at school for 2 years and was really rather poorly – however, in the space of only a few months my health started to improve and a world full of opportunity and abundance revealed itself. Recovery to me wasn’t just being at peace with my body, but rather growing as a daughter, granddaughter and student. This summer I received my GCSE results of all A* and an A equivalent, which seemed impossible this time last year. The team at Ellern Mede Ridgeway and School taught me the invaluable lesson of loving myself and people around me, and thanks to them I now lead a life free from an eating disorder.”
