PARENTAL EATING DISORDER COACHING
‘Working with Deirdre feels like someone is walking the path with you… or ahead of you… with lots of practical tips’
Ms. Deirdre Reddan
Dip. in Personal, Leadership & Exec. coaching, EMCC
As a qualified coach and experienced mentor, with lived experience of eating disorders, I work with parents / family members whose loved one has developed a problematic relationship with food.
Nothing can prepare parents / family members for the shock of a loved one developing an eating disorder and its impact on that person, as well as on the parents and wider family’s physical and emotional well-being. I work with parents / family members to help them develop the skills they need, using proven tools and techniques, to support their loved one. I support them in identifying the strengths that they can bring to the recovery process. Developing these skills can help accelerate the recovery journey.
I also work with parents whose children have developed problematic eating or are suffering from eating distress. I am passionate about helping those parents foster (and role model) a healthy relationship with food, weight and body image for their kids.
Enhancing the overall mental health and well-being of the parents and family members is key, as proactively looking after their own well-being highlights the importance of self-care to their loved one.
I am currently completing the Eating Disorders and Obesity Master Practitioner Programme (National Centre for Eating Disorders UK).
