Jade offers 1-1 mentoring and therapy sessions
Over 1.6 million people in the UK are estimated to be directly affected by eating disorders, with an average age of originating at 16. This is likely to be an underestimate, as we know there is a huge level of unmet need and most who struggle to not seek help.
Despite eating disorders ever-increasing statistics there is still a heavy stigma attached to it. Jade educates young people on how to be more aware of this stigma, how it affects themselves, others and their community. Jade uses mentoring and coaching strategies to help young people to uncover their own triggers and issues around food, body confidence and overall self- esteem, which in turn can provide a empathy and understanding of others who are struggling, leading to more compassionate thinking and behaving for themselves and to others.

Parental Support - Jade offers 1-1 parental support and family sessions
When first suspecting or discovering your teen may have an eating disorder, the dilemma of confronting them can be unnerving. Will it make matters worse? Is it just a phase? The depth of worry and feelings of helplessness can be distressing, but can also be avoided.
Whether in 1-1 or family sessions, Jade will give parents the tools to feel competent in recognising the signs and symptoms of when your teen could have an eating disorder and if so, how to approach it in a safe and mindful way. Jade helps bridge the gap between parent and young person in the hope that parents can feel more comfortable and equipped to tackle the issues they face and for the young person to feel like they can open up without being judged or reprimanded.
