I was in a dark, lonely and painful internal place when I arrived at Montrose Manor. I didn’t want to exist and I don’t know how I made the journey from England feeling the way I did.

My ED was running riot and I couldn’t stop what I was doing, no matter how much I wanted to.

It took me a while to settle in to the warm homely environment. I felt frightened and I had been isolating back at home.

When I did let go and went with the process challenging and wonderful things happened. The Montrose Team were brilliant and I learnt so much on how to manage my ED. I will hold the people and experience close to my heart.

I can honestly say I now want to live. Everybody at Montrose Manor – staff and clients – have helped save my life. I am truly grateful. On leaving Montrose, I’m ready to embrace life on life’s terms.

I would recommend Montrose wholeheartedly.
