On the 21st April 2012 we welcomed Lynn Crilly to the board of Trustees at Men Get Eating Disorders Too.
Through using her unique and very effective form of counselling Lynn has now established herself as one of the country’s leading private therapists, working with people from all walks of life. She is admired for her passion and understanding– something she attributes to the strength and loyalty of her family and friends, with whom she spends as much time as possible. Last month, Lynn published her first book ‘Hope With Eating Disorders, which has been a huge success from sales so far.
Lynn comments: “Eating Disorders can affect both genders of all ages, having spent considerable time researching the ‘Men Get Eating Disorders Too’ chapter in my book ‘Hope with Eating Disorders’. It made me realise how much work still needs to be done to challenge the stigma around eating disorders in men and boys for both the sufferer and their carers.
“In my new role as a trustee for the charity Men Get Eating Disorders Too, I
am looking forward to working alongside a dedicated team of people to challenge this stigma, and to develop the charity further for the benefit of both the male sufferers and their carers.”
Lynn lives in Surrey with her husband Kevin and their twin-daughters.
