We are delighted this former patient wants to share this news and give her our heartfelt congratulations: “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 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.”
