Hello! As a therapist, I value the open, collaborative, and active approach of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I have found this approach, along with my attunement to my clients communications and the therapy process, as informed by the psychodynamic approach, to be of value to my clients. Everyone's experience is unique, and I strive to create a safe space where my clients can share feedback about their therapy experience, including the impact of my words and actions. Rather than telling my clients what to do or saying that their thoughts are wrong, I seek to understand how their coping mechanisms have protected and made sense to them. By doing this, we can start thinking about whether trying something new may be safe and worthwhile. As an intersectional feminist informed about gender, sexual, and relationship diversity, I take an affirmative stance. I incorporate concepts such as objectification theory and the minority stress framework into my practice. I always consider the broader contexts within which psychological distress occurs and aim to help my clients increase their agency and find opportunities to move things forward. I offer therapy for adults with eating problems and eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder and clinical supervision for therapists wishing to develop their skills and confidence within this area. With over a decade of experience specialising in therapy for people with eating disorders, published academic papers, and conference presentations in this area, I am committed to effectively supporting people with eating problems. Thank you for looking at my listing. Please see my website to find out more.
