Case Study

Eating Disorders Edinburgh

“I have already recommended Pick Protection’s solutions to other Private Medical providers and Counsellors. In our profession, safety is often not as black and white as we think it to be.”  

Ruth Micallef, Eating Disorder Specialised Counsellor

Creating a safe and secure workplace for Eating Disorders Edinburgh

Eating Disorders Edinburgh utilises Compassion Focused Therapy, Schema Therapy, and Psychoeducation to work collaboratively with clients presenting with a wide range of Eating Disorders. Established within the past two years, Ruth is already running a busy and established practice in the heart of Edinburgh, with plans to further expand her services in an Intersectional way.

The problem

Whilst on a day to day level my workplace is safe and secure, it felt important to me to have a protection system for those ‘what if’ moments. As someone who identifies as female, and who has been victim to stalking issues in the past, Pick Protection felt like the ideal solution for any worst case scenarios.

The solution

I opted for Pick’s PG Smart app and PG Click device, which is all wonderfully user friendly. The benefit of the app means I don’t need to worry about carrying and charging another device as I carry my phone with me at all times. I also wear my PG Click device on my lanyard as it is discreet and easy to access if required.

I have found the Pick team to be kind and helpful – making sure to use jargon free language, and creating a system which feels usable, affordable, and intersectional.

The outcome

I feel much safer knowing I have Pick Protection in place. The team were incredibly helpful during the setup, and have wonderful aftercare built into their service. I will continue to recommend Pick Protection to others in my industry.
