I am a qualified and registered Person-Centred counsellor with a long standing interest in eating disorders. I work from the understanding that the root causes of an eating disorder need to be understood and worked through in order for a deep and lasting recovery to take place. I am compassionate, empathic and will work with you to address the issues that you need to face in order to begin and maintain your recovery.
