About

I’m a qualified counsellor and supervisor specialising in eating disorders. Eating disorders are complex mental illnesses that can completely dominate your life. They can be your best friend and your worst enemy at the same time. Eating disorders are primarily coping mechanisms that develop to help you survive. My work has five focuses: Assessment. Stabilisation: We can stabilise anything that feels out of control so that you can focus on recovery. Foundations for Recovery: the building blocks of recovery. Underlying causes: resolving the original cause(s) of your eating disorder. Relapse prevention: helping you to stay healthy.
I have undertaken substantial training to enable me to be an eating disorder specialist including training with Oxford University, Kings College London and the University of Aberdeen. I am incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about eating disorders and do everything possible to help my clients to recover. Recovery isn't easy, but it is possible!
I know that reaching out for support can be a daunting, if not terrifying, step to take (trust me, I've been there!). I want to reassure your that I am an experienced professional who will do everything possible to make counselling as comfortable and effective as I can.
