The course was another well presented training, very informative and perfect combination with the eating disorder and obesity treatments. Thankyou. I look forward to passing on my new skills to current and future clients, but also implementing them in my own daily living.

I learnt a lot of new things I was not even aware of. It has certainly empowered me to make better choices and share them with clients. Not only those with Eating Disorders but all. Thankyou.

Meg Foreman

This course was very useful in broadening my understanding for myself and my clients. It will compliment the work that I do with clients and help them set goals in relation to their overall health and nutrition. I thought I had a good understanding of nutrition, however after completing this course I feel even more equipped and confident to provide psycho education and to discuss health outcomes with other health professionals such as GPs and dietitians. This is excellent for recovery and prevention relapse.
