Essex Eating Disorder and Obesity Services Ltd - Michelle

Hello and thank you for looking at my profile. I work privately alongside Debbie Horrey in Chelmsford. We both offer face-to-face counselling, and also telephone and Skype if necessary. I am very passionate about working in this field. I understand the complexity of eating disorders - often underpinned by other problems such as anxiety and/or depression, appearance and weight concerns. I know how people often compare themselves to others and how much this can negatively impact on self worth. I am a strong advocate for woman's health and well-being, and as part of the work I do, I seek to help clients build a strong sense of self and self worth - essential to recovery.
