Kirsty Stapledon

I'm Kirsty, I am a Peer Support Worker for Forward Thinking Birmingham's, Specialist Eating Disorder Service. I have been in post for over a year now and really enjoy getting to use my lived experience to build understanding, connection and motivation with some of the young people I work with. This role is incredibly rewarding to me, as I understand the challenges people with eating disorders face when seeking treatment and in life after recovery, and thus getting to challenge stigma and champion the needs of our patients is something I really value.
