I am a recovered emotional eater and 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 yo-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 got it and my consequent strong empathy turned out to be invaluable hence formalising things and training to becoming a UYE licensed practitioner. I run a private practice from my base in Weybridge. Before taking 5 years to train as a counsellor, culminating in a 3 year BA (Hons) degree, 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 was granted the status of BACP Accredited Counsellor by the BACP in early 2019 (this is, in effect, a quality standard for counsellors). I am also recognised by Bupa and WPA medical insurers. I have worked as part of the teams delivering counselling to NHS patients at two busy Surrey GP surgeries and with The Counselling Partnership, a BACP accredited charity, offering counselling for anxiety and depression from three locations in Surrey. I look forward to hearing from you and to the prospect of working with you, thank you.
