What do I bring?

I fully understand the impact an eating disorder can have on living and I am passionate about helping you tackle your problems so that you can move forward with your life.

People struggling with eating disorders often have high levels of shame and low self-worth, which can keep them stuck with their difficulties. We would look to develop a shared understanding of the reasons which keep your problem going, including cognitive, behavioural and emotional aspects, and work together to begin to address these. My main therapeutic approach is CBT-ED (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Eating Disorders), and within this, I will integrate a range of techniques appropriate for you as needed.

Tackling eating problems can be hard, and I will bring plenty of enthusiasm, motivation, compassion and honesty to facilitate the best environment in which you can test out making changes. The therapeutic relationship can be an important factor in client outcome, and I have helped many people address their barriers to change and overcome their eating difficulties. With a history of good client engagement and low drop-out rates, I am well placed to support you in taking steps forward and helping you navigate the path through your eating disorder and towards leading a life worth living.
