Judith Forrest

Judith first volunteered with First Steps ED in 2017. She has utilised her experience of being a Psychotherapist but in a way as not to cross any professional boundaries.

Judith’s experience as a psychotherapist means she always seeks feedback and ideas to be the best befriender she can be.

She also works closely with the Befriender Coordinator providing support with our CPD Eating Disorder training, and also provides Befriender coaching on good practice communication with new befriendees.

“I would like more time with my befriender Judith, she is a lovely woman and has been very helpful to me. She understands the problems and offers help and advice on what I can change.”

“Thank you so much Judith for your support as my befriender. I don’t have enough words to express gratitude, but I will definitely be volunteering as a befriender once I am out of here.  It’s sad we never got to meet in person, but our hearts & brains definitely connected.”
