About me and my therapy practice

If you are struggling with issues around eating or weight, I will work with you to develop  balanced healthy responses to food. I will  help you to build  self- esteem which will ensure that your new behaviours last. Making changes to long term beliefs and behaviours is not easy,  but I will use my extensive experience, training and specialist knowledge to address the emotional, psychological and behavioural barriers that are causing you to feel the way you do. I will support and guide  you  to make the changes that will allow you to feel at ease around food so that you can focus on other aspects of life  - relationships, work, fun - free from guilt shame and anxiety.

Practice description

I work integratively, using effective techniques and practices developed through years of research into eating disorders and disordered eating. The work is holistic, and will cover your past and present, identifying unhelpful mindsets, beliefs and behaviours that have resulted in your current struggle. There will be tasks to do in between sessions - the more you engage with the therapy, the more you will benefit. I will work at your pace and tailor the session to your individual needs.

My first session

The first session will involve a detailed fact finding about you, in order to enable me to tailor your treatment according to your needs. I will ask you about your family, and early life, schooling, relationships, work, health and significant events. We will discuss the reason you have come for counselling, how long the issues have been present, and what you would ideally like to achieve. Will we identify realistic goals for your counselling, and decide how often you will attend.
