Deciding to see Maria has been the most significant aspect of my Anorexic recovery. She taught me not only how to eat normally again, but gently and compassionately guided me to break the food rituals, and fear over portion sizes and types of food, that have debilitated my life for many many years. Trusting someone with my food and my body size was never going to happen, until Maria. Her level of knowledge and genuine concern has brought a freedom and joy I had almost given up on.”
