For many people - getting the right help for an eating disorder can be difficult and confusing.
It may that others don't or can't understand. It may be that you feel no-one can help you. It may be sometimes you feel that there is nothing wrong. It may be that sometimes you worry about the effect of your behaviours on others. Sometimes it may feel like there is a battle going on in your head. Perhaps you are worried that you will be told to do something you don't want to. You may feel that you shouldn't need help. If you are a man it may feel harder to feel believed.
You don't have to look like you have an eating disorder to have one.
People with eating disorders often find it very hard to get the help the need. Mainstream services can be hard to access.
Actually eating disorders are complex conditions that may feel like the solution to all of our problems and the cause of them - all at the same time.
I work to help to you to get the best understanding you can of what is happening for you - so that you can make the choices you need to live your life as you want to. There isn't one approach that works for everyone and the evidence is that often people do best with a range of therapeutic techniques. I am trained in CBT-E, (an adapted form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Motivational Interviewing - as well as humanistic and psychodynamic counselling.

I worked for many years as an eating disorder specialist nurse in the NHS before starting my private practice in 2014. I work with people with Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder and Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorders.
Alongside working with clients, I offer supervision and training to other professionals.
