Counselling is for anyone and everyone. You might have a specific thing you want to work on – pain from your past or worries about the future. Or you might have a general sense that something is stuck, that this isn’t quite the life you’d expected. ​Counselling offers the opportunity for us to develop a creative partnership , where we can work together to explore both what is troubling you and your potential in life and to support you to find a sense of freedom to be your true self. Counselling is not an easy option, it can uncover painful feelings, but it can be a step on the way to feeling better and more at peace with yourself.

Taking the first step towards entering into counselling can feel quite daunting and sometimes overwhelming. If you are reading this, then it might be that you are struggling at the moment but not sure if counselling will help, or what to expect? People enter into counselling for many different reasons, it might be, they are going through a particularly difficult time in their life -right now. Or something that happened many years ago has suddenly begun to resurface and feel its time to address this problem. Often I work with people with overwhelming feelings. While others just need a safe, empathetic space to talk things through

I understand the fear, the misery and the obsession that can take over when you are controlled by food – when your self-worth becomes defined by what you did or didn't eat today. Binge eating is a complex problem because it can be driven by psychological, emotional, biological and social factors. Sometimes it might like you are acting against your own will when it comes to your eating. My stance is a hopeful one, I do believe it is possible to transform your relationship with food.
