RecoverySpace is launching an e-mail support and coaching programme. Accessing help and staying in treatment can be a difficult process, so RecoverySpace are here to provide a little additional support to help you get to where you want to be in your recovery.
The aim of this short programme is not to replace therapy or treatment, which is much more in-depth, but rather to provide you with additional support and guidance to help you find and begin treatment, or support to help you along the way while you get professional help.
The cost for e-mail support is R200, which provides you with 4 contact e-mails from your counsellor. After signing up for the short programme, you will be allocated to a specific counsellor. The counsellor will make contact with you, and ask you to complete an online form. After that, there will be 4 e-mail contacts from your counsellor, in a back-and-forth format. All counsellors are registered health care professionals (registered psychologists, social workers or counsellors)
The short programme is valid for 4 weeks after you sign up, providing you with 4 e-mail contacts with your consellor. You can choose to use these up at any time within 8 weeks. Your counsellor will respond to you within 1 working day for each e-mail sent.
All counsellors are trained by RecoverySpace, and monitored accordingly.
Please note that this programme is NOT a stand-alone treatment for an eating disorder. Eating disorders are complex, and require in-depth treatment.
