Good day!
I am a researcher for Dr Nicola Davis, a psychologist and writer. We are currently compiling a short article on the importance of mentors (particularly female mentors) in overcoming eating disorders and are hoping to get expert comment on this topic.
You would, of course be credited for your input – hope to hear from you!
