About me
Hello! I’m Harriet Frew – psychological therapist and mother of three.

I am passionate about helping you overcome disordered eating and developing peace with food.

I have worked both in private practice and in an NHS specialist eating disorder service since 2003.

I also bring my personal experience of recovery from bulimia nervosa and have been fully recovered for many years.

I am a qualified BACP Accredited Counsellor and have a Masters in Nutrition and Diploma in Eating Disorders.

I am believe that recovery from an eating disorder is absolutely possible.. I embrace body positivity and Health At Every Size.
What advice do you suggest for someone reading this who is thinking of getting help for disordered eating?
  • You are more likely to recover and find new ways of coping if you access support early on. You might feel guilty or ashamed for having the problem. Keeping it secret will likely only drive it further underground and compound these negative feelings though.
  • You could initially speak to a trusted friend or family member. You might read some self-help material or visit the BEAT website.. You may think about counselling. 
  • Stay hopeful and persist in getting support. You don't have to be stuck with this forever. A life free from the shackles of using food to cope is a real possibility.
