About me and my therapy practiceI am experienced in working with clients with general issues including relationship problems, unresolved bereavement issues, anxiety, depression and stress. However, I do also specialise in working with people suffering with eating disorders or obesity. Sometimes there are specific issues that we find we cannot grapple with alone; counselling can help us come to terms with these difficult life events. Often there is a feeling that although life is continuing around us we cannot find our own way through the mire or there is a sense of just not functioning as well as we could. Counselling can help to make sense of this confusion and find a positive path back to a more stable and happier frame of mind.
Practice descriptionI was trained as a psycho-dynamic counsellor but would now describe myself as integrative, drawing on many elements including Cognitive Behavioural and Person Centred theories. My training has also included short term focused work and couples therapy. In 1992 I completed an intense course in the varied aspects of eating disorders culminating in an MA. My final paper, which was published, reported on a research project with recovered anorexics and bulimics and what services they would have liked when they were ill.
My first sessionIf you decide that seeing a counsellor would benefit you, we would make an initial appointment that is mutually convenient so that we can meet to discuss your problems and to give you an opportunity to experience how I work. I usually see clients once a week (although this could be more often), so it is important to find an appointment time that is suitable for you on an ongoing basis.
