    Please excuse me for butting in but I really need some help and I hoped that someone would be able to give it to me.

    I have been on and off CD for the last four years. I was really sucessful with my old counsellor (lost 4 stone) but since I moved to Norfolk two years ago I haven't been able to find the right counsellor and I have had two now. I know that I have to be in the right place mentally to make CD work, and I have been, but my first counsellor was more of a sales rep, and the second encouraged me to put my faith in God (I'm agnostic at best) so that didn't work out either. I am now back to 18 stone, where I was at the start of this journey and I am so miserable about it.

    In desperation this week I have bought 2 weeks supply of another VCLD but I already know that I am doomed to fail with it as there is no support and everything tastes horrid and really I want to do Cambridge again as it's what I know best, but I also know that I cannot do it without a supportive counsellor like I had before I moved. So, where do I find one?

    I have looked at CD's website and there are lots of counsellors in Norfolk, and I am more than happy to travel so does anyone have any recommendations? I know this sounds naff, but I just can't face working my way through all the Norfolk counsellors in the hope of finding the right one.

    I know that I can shift this weight because I have done it before, I have the right frame of mind so please, someone tell me what to do next.

    Thanks for listening to me

    Thank you both so much. It's always helpful to hear from others in the same boat.

    Good luck

    I'm in between Norwich and Kings Lynn but I'm happy to travel to see the right person. My nearest counsellor isn't really for me and I have been to one in Kings Lynn but that didn't work out either, maybe it's me? I am beginning to get a complex:(. I don't want to be too obvious so it's best that I don't say exactly where I live as that wouldn't be fair of me.

    Mike Scott is in your area and I think his wife is a CDC too?
    Not sure of contact details but they should be on the CD website :)
    Good Luck :)

    Here's his blog...true inspiration if ever you need it....

    My CambridgeLife - iBlog, Do You?

    I read his from cover to cover and Isobels (although she's wrong end of country for you) before I started LL and CD.
    It got me through some very tough times :)

    Good luck xx

    Mike is in the Gt Yarmouth area isnt' he which is a fair way if you live between KL and Norwich ~ not trying to put you off though, he is great and worth getting in touch as he suggests :) he can help and if you read his blogs you'll get no end of inspiration there.

    I can recommend Julie Rush in Norwich, if you're interested you can pm me and I'll give you her contact details ~ or pm her by doing a search on her name as she posts here under julesrush.

    Hope you find someone soon and it all works out for you :)

    haven't been on mini's for some time, else I would have helped sooner, just in case you're wondering.

    Hi,

    I know Mike (Icemoose) and Jo Scott cover Norwich and see clients in that area.

    Good luck with CD.
