She understand first-hand what it is like to feel out of control with food and negative about body shape. In the past Frew had bulimia nervosa and it took her seven years to break out of a cycle of dieting, over-eating and purging. She wanted to get well but did not know how to or where to start. It is her whole thinking around food and body image that needed to change. That is when she decided to train as a Counsellor and also to then develop her own recovery programme to support others. This programme supports people of all weights and shapes to transform their eating and body image. You can follow her on Twitter
