You can fully recover from Bulimia and Binge Eating. I know your eating disorder can seem very complex, difficult to understand and the idea of recovery a faraway dream.  But the truth is the evidence show we: €¢ know what causes eating disorders €¢ know how they continue and can spiral out of control €¢ know how they can become an obsession that totally overtakes you life.   But, most importantly, I know how to help you achieve a complete recovery and get on with the rest of your life. 30 Minute Free Consultation I offer a free 30 minute consultation because making that first step to get help can be daunting.  You might be unsure what help is available, what it entails and how much will it cost and the consultation will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have. The consultation will give us a good chance to get to know each other.   It will give you a chance to explain how your eating disorder affects your life, what causes you the most pain and what are your hopes for a full recovery. With this understanding of where you are with your eating disorder at the moment, together we will design an individual programme of treatment at a pace, that is right for you. Treatment programme If you feel ready to start treatment the method we will use is based on the best scientific evidence and this does NOT include any restrictive diets or so called wonder drugs. I use the 'Integrated Eating Disorders' model pioneered by The National Centre for Eating Disorders and a combination of hypnotherapy and visualisation techniques.  The first stage in this model is to stabilise the body with nourishing food which will help a lot. There will be emotional elements making you eat, such as stress, anxiety and self image.  Even the way you think about food can affect how you behave (I've blown it - might as well eat everything!!!').   I will teach you skills that techniques to break these old habits and help you find new, better ways of solving your problems. I know you might be in a dark place at the moment.  I also know when you have the knowledge, to work with your body (and not against it) and have learned new skills, you can soon turn that around.   Then you can get on with your life. If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to get back to me.

Qualifications

An NHS Expert in Behaviour Change, for over 10 years. I became increasingly concerned about the obesity / diabetes epidemic and studied at the National Centre for Eating Disorders where I gained: €¢ an advanced diploma in eating disorders €¢ a diploma in obesity management and €¢ a diploma in nutritional interventions for eating disorders I developed the course Down with Diets'  (which I also taught to GPs and nurses) which gives patients the knowledge and skills to enable them to eat their way out of their weight problem' and maintain a healthy weight for life. I designed several courses to show GPs and nurses how to help their patients break unhealthy habits and ways to reduce stress and anxiety. I am now semi-retired and use this experience and knowledge to work with private patients who are suffering from bulimia and binge eating.
