I have worked in Adult and CAMHS services and eating disorders.
Could you imagine a life without thinking constantly of food? A life not overtaken by anxiety and people or parts of society that make you feel uncomfortable, a burden or lead you to not trust yourself? Are you living a life that does not give you joy and pleasure, or you feel out of control? Then I am here to help. Whether you have an issue with eating -avoiding, bingeing or control, anxiety, OCD, low mood or trauma, I will help you address the root cause and collaborate with you to improve how you act and feel. We will use accredited cognitive behavioural therapy, EMDR, breathwork and yoga in person or online at a time that suits

Through counselling we can explore whatever you bring, such as but not limited to trauma, abuse (of all kinds), identity issues, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, addiction, eating disorders & loss.
Hello, I’m Lauren. As an integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor I draw upon theories from the main schools of thought and tailor my approach to the unique individual; not applying any particular method to you but rather meeting you where you are, and going from there. As there is no one set way of being, and no one set way of working therapeutically with another our therapeutic relationship is important. I offer a free 30 minute consultation to go through what brings you to counselling, any queries you may have, and to see how we 'fit' and how you feel about the prospect of beginning sessions with me

We all go through difficulties at times and sometimes can feel out of our depth and in need of a helping hand.

Let’s work together to see how we can understand things and make things better for the future. I have worked in a variety of settings including NHS, private and hospitals for over 10 years.

I primarily work with adults experiencing anxiety disorders, depression and chronic health symptoms such as chronic pain, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and IBS. Mainstream medicine is only beginning to recognise the powerful role of the brain in the development of chronic pain, anxiety, and depression, but decades of research and clinical experience have demonstrated its pivotal role in recovery. This gap between research and practice leaves patients cycling through traditional symptom-management treatments that often do not bring relief.

Growing up has never been easy but perhaps due to the ever-changing circumstances, it is becoming even more difficult for children and young people with so many things they have to navigate or are exposed to. When children struggle emotionally, whether they are toddlers or teenagers, either their behaviour detoriate or unhealthy ways to deal with those strong emotions emerge. Either option can be scary and not many will be willing to talk about what is in their mind or is upsetting them.

The reasons we seek counselling are many and varied. Sometimes there is a sudden loss or trauma, but sometimes there are layers of difficult experiences where one more is too many, and we can become overwhelmed. These may be current events or traumatic experiences from long ago that continue to affect life today. We may begin to distance ourselves from friends and family as we try to make sense of difficult feelings and emotions alone. Perhaps because we don't want to burden others or from unresolved or misplaced feelings of guilt or shame. Reaching out for support can be difficult, but contacting me is easy, please get in touch.

I aim to offer a confidential, safe space and a non-judgemental supportive relationship, hopefully helping you to explore and gain understanding of why you may feel the way you do. This sometimes can mean reviewing and working through past influences and life events and how they may be affecting you in the present. This self-exploration can be an opportunity for personal development and growth, bringing about positive changes in how we feel about ourselves and how we relate to others.

Eating Disorders Counsellors

What happens in therapy for eating disorders?

In therapy for eating disorders, patients typically describe their eating and exercise behaviours, their patterns of eating in relation to stress, their beliefs about their body, the ways their eating behaviour affects their relationships, and their desire (or lack of it) to change. Such information helps the therapist understand the origins of the disorder and the role it plays in the patient’s life, important for guiding treatment. Attitudes and feelings about food and eating, body weight, and physical appearance are common topics of discussion throughout treatment.

What therapy types help with eating disorders?

Once any acute medical or psychiatric emergency is resolved, psychoactive medication is often prescribed, requiring the supervision of a psychiatrist. In addition, patients receive some form of nutritional counselling along with one or more forms of psychotherapy. For adolescents, family-based treatment is empirically validated and considered the first line of treatment; parents and their children meet weekly with a clinician as the adults are coached on how to nourish and psychologically support the young patient. Adults typically receive some form of individual psychotherapy, intended to resolve the cognitive and behavioural disturbances that underlie the disorder and to relieve the mood disturbances that accompany it. In addition, patients may also be helped by group therapy.

What is the goal of therapy for eating disorders?

The most immediate goal of treatment for eating disorders is to save the life of people who are on a path of starving themselves to death or engaging in eating patterns that are doing irreparable physical harm to their body. Once the acute medical danger is past, therapy is required to understand the nature of the disordered eating and/or exercise patterns, establish healthy eating behaviour, and to tackle the many erroneous beliefs and distorted self-perceptions that underlie eating disorders and continue to pose a threat to health and life. Therapy also addresses the impaired mood that not only accompanies eating disorders but intensifies the danger to health and life.

What are the limitations of therapy for eating disorders?

Therapy can be very helpful for eating disorders—but that can happen only after people recognise they have a condition that must be treated. Especially with anorexia, the distortions in self-image that accompany the disorder can keep people from acknowledging they have a problem. Individuals may in fact see their eating disorder as a badge of self-control. Those with binge-eating disorder may feel too ashamed to seek help. Therapy cannot help those who do not avail themselves of it.

How long does therapy last for eating disorders?

Because of their complexity, recovery from eating disorders is usually a long-term process—measured in months and years— often marked by setbacks and relapse. Some form of help, such as individual or group therapy, may be advisable for much of that time. It is a general rule of thumb that the longer the illness has endured and the dysregulated eating behaviour has taken root, the longer treatment is likely to be needed.
