Becoming a CD councellor

#2
The best person to talk to about this is your own Counsellor who will need to sponsor you and provide ongoing support.

We're actually self-employed independent Counsellors running our own businesses under the Cambridge Code of Conduct and therefore don't work to a commission system as such, but your CDC will explain in more detail.

Good luck :)

Hi Sharon

many thanks for your reply. Unfortunately my councellor is not happy with my idea and she doesnt really want to give any info how I can become a councellor as well. As we live pretty close to each other she thinks I might will take her potential clients away so she is absolutely not helpful. I tried to contact with the CD people on phone but they never phone me back :( , thats why I tried here. X

Hi Amethy

Totally understand what you mean. I think we have the wrong councellors becoz mine as well very very greedy and rude. The only reason why I stick with her because she lives close to me. Since she knows I would like to be a councellor she is really rude as well. On Friday when I went to see her she said to me (after that I lost 2 stones 10 pounds):
" You dont really look 5 feet 7 tall because you are still fat" - I was just smiling inside but of course it was hurt but I thought, you know what? f***k that, you are not going to ruin my weekend!

I just finished a councelling and nutrition course and I would love to be a CD councellor. You are lucky you have found someone, who can support you! Good luck,X

That is way out of order her speaking to you like that, I would change cdc and report her to head office.
You are doing fantastic with your loss. and she should remember you are paying her !!!!!!

Wow, what right does she have to do that! I feel really angry when I hear about these evil CDCs. Poor you, I'm glad the experience hasn't put you off the diet.

I thought the ketosis stick is totally normal I am asked to do it every week as part of the diet and I even pay for it :O
She is my 2nd councellor by the way, the first one was really good but my food always was in late sometimes one or two days as she lived very far. It happened after the 2nd week she said she cant come to see me becoz of the traffic! and i asked her, ok,what I gonna eat in the next day? She said some chicken? I was like mad, that my councellor was asking me to cheat becoz she is a lazy b****d and didnt want to come and see me on that day. After I found my present one who is a b***h since I told her I want to be a councellor. Anytime I am with her she makes me feel so s**t and the most embarassing that she was checking my weight on friday in front of her partner and her mother...and then her mother started a 10 minutes tale how to loose weight. I was just like: excuise me, but I thought X is my councellor...then I told my councellor that I have started to walking on my treadmill like 40 minutes 4 times/week and she said: I told you not to exercise but looks you think you know everything better, dont you? I just walked out thought: she is a cow and she can f*** off. I am doing this diet cos of myself not for her and I def would love to be a councellor to help ppl becoz I konw whats the feeling to be overweight, carring over 7 stones.

Guys

Can I please remind you of the Minimins Code of Conduct which asks members to refrain from using bad language on the site? (I'm afraid using asterisks still counts).

If you have any complaints about the service you're receiving from your CDC, then you should address it to the people at Cambridge Head Office who are always very helpful in these circumstances.

By all means, use this site to discuss issues regarding your diet and to give each other support on our weightloss journeys - which is what we're all here for - but let's keep it friendly shall we?

Thanks :)

Gosh Mamateddy as if she weighed you in front of other people! Can you find another counsillor? I'm sure that there are loads in London. My first CDC lived literally 10 seconds from my house but I never cliecked with her so I just changed to one that lived 25 miles away but she was AMAZING so even lazy me didn't mind the drive.

I think you should teach this patronising cow a lesson and vote with your feet.

Good luck in becoming a CDC hon!

Sorry about the bad language you are totally right.
But I think the councellors (good or bad) - they are also part of our journey and why not talk about it?
