About the Trainer - Jennifer Pitt

Jennifer has worked as a counsellor/psychotherapist in high school settings and managing a team of school counsellors for nearly 2 decades. These days, in addition to writing articles, and delivering training workshops and webinars, she runs a private practice. Much of her work is with young people suffering with disordered eating.

Since 2015 Jennifer has held Eating Disorder Practitioner status. Her decision to undertake a formal training in this area, came the day after an excruciating counselling session with a student who was exhibiting all the early signs of anorexia, and who ran out of her session following a clumsy intervention by her counsellor!
