I am an experienced integrative therapist registered with the BACP and working privately with clients aged 17 years and over dealing with issues such as stress, anxiety, relationship issues, feeling “stuck” and transitions in life such as going off to university, mid life issues and ageing.
I am an Accredited Bereavement Counsellor and worked with a national bereavement agency counselling the bereaved for over 15 years and supervised other bereavement counsellors.
How I work with Eating Disorders
I am a network practitioner of the National Centre for Eating Disorders and have undergone their training to become a Master Practitioner in Eating Disorders.
I work collaboratively with each person and following an initial consultation we agree a treatment plan tailored to their unique needs. I take a holistic approach to treating eating disorders and I work with each person to not only get them to move towards being free of eating disorder behaviours and symptoms but to get them feeling good about themselves and living much more authentically and in line with their values. I offer brief therapy and also work longer term with clients where deeper work is needed.
As an integrative therapist I am trained in and draw upon a range of theoretical approaches which include CBT, mindfulness, positive psychology, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and NLP.
Our work together would address the emotional and cognitive aspects of the eating issue and may typically include work on family history, body image, self esteem, stress reduction, nutritional rehabilitation, lifestyle issues and interpersonal skills. As part of your recovery, your physical wellbeing may need to be monitored by your GP for your physical safety. I am supported in my work by an NHS registered specialist eating disorder dietician who offers private consultations to my clients by Zoom. My client work is regularly supervised by the Clinical Director of an eating disorder clinic in Hampshire.
I work face to face from an office in Kenilworth, Warwickshire and online by Zoom. Zoom working can be very effective and I have worked online with clients in France, Hong Kong, Dubai and Germany in addition to UK based clients all over the country.
Standard working hours are Monday- Friday from 09.15 with the last appointment at 6.30 pm.
The cost of a 60 minute initial consultation is £65 and ongoing sessions are also priced at £65. Sessions may sometimes be available at a reduced rate and this can be discussed on enquiry.
I offer a 20 minute initial consultation by Zoom without charge if you are undecided whether to book a full consultation.
