This podcast has been so helpful to me and really helped me to grow and progress in my recovery. I can’t thank you enough for the work you do. The guests on the show are knowledgeable and passionate about the work. It’s humanizing and kind, and helps to dissolve some of the shame I have had for having struggled for the majority of my life with this. As a therapist, it is inspiring to hear others in the mental health field who are recovered and how much of a difference you all are making. This podcast makes me not feel so alone in it and helps to fill my thoughts with the knowledge and hope I want to focus on.
This is such an amazing, loving, accepting, non-judgmental resource for anyone struggling with or recovering from an ED. I was in therapy for a few years, trying to heal from BED, but finances have made that impossible to continue. I need to keep healing/recovery at the forefront of my mind, and this helps. Most notably, this podcast is a source of hope for me. Thank you, Dr. Anderson and all guests!
Every episode has been so beneficial! Many thoughts and ideas discussed hit home. Definitely worth listening to!
An incredibly inspiring and informational podcast that has provided so much insight that I have used for my own recovery journey. I listen to a number of eating disorder recovery, HAES, body acceptance, etc. podcasts and Dr. Anderson’s is my favorite. Thank you so much for your work, Dr. Janean!
As a mental health professional, I have found Dr. Anderson’s podcast to be incredibly helpful in multiple ways. Primarily, as a clinician seeking to increase my awareness and understanding of eating disorders, The Eating Disorder Recovery Podcast is an unparalleled resource. Secondly, it has been pivotal in my clinical work with eating disorder clients. Providing clients with this podcast as a resource outside of therapy has led to immense clinical progress and is a resource I will continue to use. Thank you Dr. Anderson!
Thanks to this truly informative podcast I learned about recovery options and recovery processes. It inspired me to seek help and got me started.
I would recommend this podcast to anyone who has problems with food or body image. There’s a lot of useful information in it and the interviews with the guests are great. I think this podcast would be helpful for anyone who wants to be better with food or body image or exercise but also people trying to recover from an eating disorder or therapists who work with them or for family members who want more information.
This podcast is for everyone, whether you are personally affected by an eating disorder, know someone who is or may be affected, are involved in the field, are just wanting to learn more… and even if you just want something good to listen to. I really enjoy listening to Dr. Anderson, she makes it so interesting and humbly shares her own recovery experiences.
This is the best Eating Disorder podcast I’ve found. She is professional and has great guests who know how to speak about this topic with authority. Highly recommend.
I have tried many styles of therapy and therapists. I have had an eating disorder for as long as I can remember and lately it’s gotten worse. I stumbled upon this podcast at just the right time. It is not intrusive or judgmental, I don’t feel shame after listening, I feel hopeful, like I can change. There are so many great episodes, I always learn a new tactic to improve my process. Thank you so much for creating and sharing this life changing podcast. Is there a way to support the show other than subscribing and rating?
I have been in treatment for just about 2 years, which means I can go longer in between treatment sessions. However, I was looking for a way to get support in little spurts each day to help me keep my eyes on the prize – recovery. This podcast has absolutely been the answer! Expert advice from truly qualified sources presented with passion and empathy, plus plenty of additional outlets and resources for every level of engagement. I can truthfully say that I am closer to my goals from tuning in, using the topics discussed here to bolster my own learning in treatment. This podcast is an absolute gift!
So informative with great guests in such a supportive way
There are several great ED podcasts available, but this one is the best. The episodes are incredibly relatable and insightful and have been incredibly helpful to me in my recovery. She touches on a lot of topics that other podcasts don’t seem to reach. I walk away from each podcast feel a little further along in recovery and hopeful for the future.
Definitely a must listen too!! I’ve already listened to all the available episodes and every time I listen to them again I find some new information I missed before and even better more insights about my behaviors and myself. Thank you for this podcast!!
I have been in recovery from my eating disorder for 10 years now, and when I listen to this podcast, I hear positive messages about recovery that I have never heard before. I find myself re-listening to past episodes because they help me to realize that I’m not alone in this, that full recovery is possible, and that fully recovered people lead productive and inspiring lives free from the constraints of an eating disorder. Thank you so much, Dr. Anderson! I look forward to new episodes!
I am not dealing with an eating disorder myself but this is a great insight into the realm for friends and family. It is simple to understand for “Noobs” like me. Dr. Janean’s understanding, insight and energy should be heard by anyone dealing with this destructive disorder. She brings in really great guests and also is very personable in her solo episodes. I hope I can suggest this podcast to everyone.
