This service offers a Recovery Programme for those struggling in their relationship with food, their bodies and themselves. A thorough Assessment is necessary to understand your difficulties with disordered eating and body image distress, to assess risk and to assess your suitability for the programme. A free and comprehensive Assessment Pack sent electronically or by post can be completed and returned either by you or your referrer. If deemed suitable for the Recovery Programme an Intake Appointment will be arranged.

My extensive training and experience includes a range of theoretical approaches that are essential in working with disordered eating and body image distress. I began initially in addictions and then onto a specialist PND (perinatal depression) service. Before, during and after pregnancy can be a challenging time for many who struggle with food and their body. Further training in Supervision, Family Therapy, Eating Disorders, EMDR and Trauma also inform my work as a Specialist Counsellor.Tell us if this listing needs updating
