    Hi CDG

    RING HER! At the end of the day she is running a 'business' of sorts and surely more clients means more money/reputation for her? I am sure CDC's have to make money/have targets etc (I may be worong?:confused:)

    Anyway I know how you feel when I had to go back to mine I felt abit embarassed and as if she would be like "oh typical she wants to come back" sort of thing but she was the exact opposite!

    Go for it!

    I'd go for it, maybe she's just extra busy and hasn't gotten around to your email yet... good luck!

    Ring her! When I started CD I dropped my CDC an email from the address he had on the CD website...but he never got it! Don't know why, it just disappeared into the depths of cyber space. If I hadnt bitten the bullet and rung him I'd probably still be over 23 stone ;)

    Please ring her, text her, whatever. She may be on holiday which may have been why she hasn't responded. But yes we have to make money, it is a business after all and we're only too glad to take on new dieters or restarters. You'll have to fill in another form, so the new client screening process starts again as you haven't been to your CDC for over 6 months.

    Actually thinking about it, so many dieters are embarrassed about restarting with the same counsellor, and it really isn't necessary. No-one should feel embarrassed, just pick up the phone or start the email and get going again. And if it makes the dieter feel any less embarrassed just remember you're keeping the CDC in business, look at it that way.

    Same principle - I fall asleep on the sofa each night making my back not quite right, as I suffer from hypermobility, yet who cares, it's helping my osteopath pay his bills!

    However if you stopped seeing your CDC because you didn't get on or get the right level of care - don't see that one, find a different one.

    That's great news. Well done! I was going to say "ring her" too until I saw that you'd already done it :)

    It's possible that she may have changed her email address or, as someone else said, just didn't get it for some reason. I know sometimes I don't always get ones sent to me - which is why I always ask my clients to phone or text me.

    I've had quite a few 'returners' this week and I always love to hear from them as I take it as a great compliment that they feel they can trust me enough to come back to me again if they need my help.

    Good luck with your re-start!

    (PS. I've just noticed Ellen's message and would like to say that all CDCs are entirely self-employed and don't work to any kind of target whatsoever :))
