Parents, get support directly from me

  • Get emotional support for yourself

I help parents all over the world:

Or by email (or a mixture of video call and email)

“What we parents need is compassion and practical advice and you are a master on both.”

With individual support you benefit from the wealth of knowledge that could otherwise take you years to collect and make sense of.  And  at the same time you get the care you need for yourself.

Feedback from parents

“Any parents receiving support & advice from you are very lucky. Your knowledge is gained through your own experience and careful thorough research, peppered with a good dose of empathy & common sense. I know you will be an invaluable support to anyone you advise!”

“You have such a gift Eva – your way of communicating is very gentle and loving and also fun! I have always felt very much listened to and cared for.

And it has been wonderful to know there is someone out there who knows what it is like and who cares and has so much experience and knowledge and wisdom to share. The emotional support you have given me has been invaluable and I have learnt a huge amount about compassionate communication from you.

Having you supporting me has definitely made me feel stronger. You are often with us in those very stormy moments overlooking it all with your gentle presence.I am very grateful to you Eva. You have helped us so very much.”

“Thank you so much for today.  You helped me so much.  Just being kind to my core self had a very uplifting energising effect. I was energised into doing some weeding and planting!!  So what you are doing works!”

“This is the longest happy period we have had in I don’t know how long and I just want to enjoy it.  Also she has not self-harmed for 4 days…this is amazing and I am totally linking it to your advice… I guess she was just desperate for me to hear her and not try and solve her problems.”

“I know that we only talked for a very short time but I want you to know how important that was for me.  I was very low at that time but our conversation was enough for me to realise that I needed to talk with my family and let them in.  It has been a turning point.”

“After our experiences with the professionals I had been put off seeking any help. After reading your book I felt you would be different – and you are! It felt extremely good talking to someone who’s been there, done that (and then wrote the book!). I loved your insight, experience and knowledge. But most of all I loved the fact you’re not judging us – but choosing to walk alongside us. Thank you!”

  1. Hi Eva,
    Re becoming a coach – go for it! You were my rock on our ED journey & I’m proud to be able to call you my friend. Any parents receiving support & advice from you are very lucky. Your knowledge is gained through your own experience & careful thorough research, peppered with a good dose of empathy & common sense. I know you won’t endanger anyone with your advice and you will be an invaluable support to anyone you advise!
    All the best, Linedup

  2. Dear Eva
    I just wanted to say how very much I have appreciated the support and care you have shown to me over the past 12 months. During this time, when my now 16 year old daughter has been in her 2nd year of inpatient treatment, I have needed what I can only describe as “places of refuge” in order to keep me standing upright and able to manage. You provide a place of refuge for me during our Skype conversations. What do I mean by that? I mean the careful listening, the attention you give me, the acceptance of all that I bring, whether that be despair, sadness, anger or resentment, as well as the sometimes small steps of “progress”. You have helped me to stay connected with myself and through that to connect with my daughter. It has brought alive the messages you offer in your book and has helped me to understand NVC and how it plays a huge role in my communication with both my daughter and other people in my life, including professionals. I cannot recommend what you are offering to parents more highly and I only hope that other parents can also benefit from your kindness, compassion and huge wealth of knowledge and experience. Thank you.

  3. I have been been doing consultations with Eva for several months for my financially independent YA daughter. Eva has been so helpful – very knowledgeable in all aspects of eating disorders, helping me figure out priorities and how to accomplish them, and giving wonderful, practical empathetic support when I was feeling hopeless about helping our daughter. She did research and found an excellent therapist even though we are on different continents, helped me figure out what needed to be done to help our daughter, what we actually could do although we have no financial leverage, and steps to achieving the goals. Although it is still very much a work in progress, I went from feeling like we could do nothing to help, to realizing there was much we could do to help our daughter. I feel our daughter is now in good hands, is invested in working on getting better, and is actually doing the work. Thank you, Eva!! I don’t feel we could have accomplished this without your knowledge, help, kindness and concern, and empathetic support.

  4. Having read Eva’s book (Anorexia and Other Eating Disorders which I thoroughly recommend) I recently opted for one-to-one Skype consultations with her to help me overcome so obstacles which I have been facing in supporting my teenage daughter who is currently recovering from Anorexia Nervosa and depression. Eva’s compassionate, friendly and genuinely caring approach combined with her very well informed, helpful and practical advice left me feeling inspired, reinvigorated and superbly well supported. Thank you, Eva. You are doing amazing and important work.

  5. Dear Eva
    I have only had a couple of skype calls with you so far but I wanted to let you know how helpful it has been to feel truly understood.My YA daughter has been ill for many years and is not really wanting to recover.
    It has really helped to practice difficult conversations. In the panic of an overwhelming ED situation I feel so muzzy-headed but this time I remembered your words and my daughter’s distress slowly diffused. With your kind and compassionate words in my head I don’t feel quite so alone and incompetent. Thank you Eva

  6. hi Eva
    Our 15 y/o daghter was formally diagnosed with anorexia in May – adn we have been trying to follow FBT with our local eating disroder service, who have provided good support including some home visits in teh past 2 weeks. She isn’t gaining weight rapdily enough and we haev struggled a bit with suicidal ideation, self harm and some physical aggression. Although she is now eating 3 meals/3 snacks she has a long list of ‘unhealthy foods’ which unless we introduce, will mean she cannot get to her healthy weight.. so the lcoal service have initiated an inpatient referral – cautioning us that it is a last resort and she’ll learn all sorts of self harm techniques etc,
    We are keen to avoid it but I am really struggling to make progress – I feel I give her healthy meals taht help to mainitain her weight but if i give her anything more challenging that willhelp to restore weight she will react so strongly … we have your book but I really feel I need some coaching through this and I don’t think we’ll get it from the local service..I am a bit stuck generally and feeling quite low about all of this – do you think you can help?

  7. Dear Eva, A big thank you for your coaching which is helping me through a very challenging time. The practical ED information combined with the advice on compassionate self-care gave me an immediate sense of gaining strength, confidence and clarity. Beccy
