I love it when readers of Beautiful You reach out to me wanting to share their story or something amazing that is happening in their world and may be of service to others. I can’t post them all of course but I so love hearing from you as it happened recently when I was contacted by eating disorder advocate Polly Mertens. Polly has a passion for generating awareness about bulimia nervosa and is the Founder of Bulimia Awareness Day which she is proudly claiming as being TODAY – July 17th. She wanted to share with you ways you can support someone with bulimia and I hope you all find it helpful.
For those of you who may be new to Beautiful You, while I see people in my counselling practice for a variety of issues I have a particular interest in supporting those with eating disorders and disordered eating. Hence my passion for all things self-love and positive body image too, both of which are such important elements of eating disorder recovery.
