I am a recovered emotional eater (also known as comfort eater, binge eater or over eater) and now licenced practitioner of Emeritus Professor Julia Buckroyd's programme Understanding Your Eating (UYE). Please click this link to find out more http://www.understandingyoureating.co.uk/page0/index.html
UYE helped me end 35 years of €œyo-yo dieting€ and utter bafflement as to why one moment my eating would be fine and the next I'd be gripped by a drive to eat so overwhelming I felt some alien force was controlling my body.
Initially I shied away from working in this field concerned I could not be objective on this issue. Then clients and patients began to cross my path who were expressing their emotional distress through their eating and my lack of shock and judgement at what they told me, the fact I €œgot€ it and my consequent strong empathy turned out to be invaluable hence formalising things and training to becoming a UYE licensed practitioner.
I am a member of the teams delivering counselling to patients at two busy Surrey GP surgeries. I work with The Counselling Partnership, a BACP accredited charity which offers counselling for anxiety and depression from three locations in Surrey.
I also run a private practice from my base in Weybridge. Before re-training as a counsellor I worked for 28 years in the private sector so I have insight into the stresses and strains of balancing work and life as well as experience of the ups and downs of life generally.
I look forward to hearing from you and to the prospect of working with you.
It is hard for us to get the measure of each other from just a photo and a profile of me and an email or a phone call from you. I would suggest that you give me a ring please on 07950 986 085 to discuss whether an initial non-chargeable 'chemistry test' session might be a helpful next step for you, thank you.
