Eating Disorder Recovery Support
I specialise in supporting those with a history of, or currently experiencing disordered eating, restriction, binge eating, compulsive exercise and other associated issues. I also work with anyone who has had an eating disorder in the past and feels that their relationship with food, their body and exercise is still challenging in some way.
Full recovery from an eating disorder is possible.
My approach is multi-faceted, bringing in elements of outcome focused therapies (CBT, NLP), mindful based practices, and person centred philosophies. But the heart of it, I give you space to talk about what you are experiencing and how it is affecting you, without fear of judgement or shame. I know that you don't want to be experiencing what you are going through, and I also know that you don't know how to change things or where to start.
We start by having a conversation and working forward from there. We begin with how things are for you in the 'here and now' and find ways forward from there.We may look back from time to time to your previous experiences to understand how they might have influenced your current experience. But we are more intent on moving forward from here. We focus on what we do now to help you find and practice new ways of coping and loosening the hold that the eating disorder behaviours and thoughts have on you.
If you are interested in finding out more about this, then please get in touch*. It is important that we have a chat first to check that I am the right person to support you at this point, and I can answer any questions you may have before starting any sessions together.
* Please note:
I work with adults 18+ only.
I only discuss support and book appointments with those seeking recovery for themself. If you seeking support for someone else then I kindly request that you contact BEAT charity in the first instance for advice and guidance.
