Food + Body

Some of the things I might support you with are:

Addressing disordered eating

Recovery from an eating disorder*

Improving body image

Managing over-exercising or fears around exercising

I have been working in this specialised area for over 10 years. I have gained many specific qualifications and attended many training days, aswell as being part of a highly qualified team of therapists within a recovery clinic.

However, it is my experience with clients that has confirmed to me that everyone's relationship with food or their body is unique to them. Therefore how I support you with your particular challenges will be completely unique to you. 

My toolkit contains many different modalities including NLP, CBT, Schema Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, somatic movement, yoga philosophy and somatic psychotherapy. I draw on what best suits your way of communicating and your needs at the time. It's not your role to fit my tools, but rather it's for me to work creatively with them and in accordance with who you are and what you bring to the space.

I meet you where you are at, respect your individuality & aim to be a steady anchor for you throughout your time of therapy with me. We may meet some moments that are challenging to explore but we will only ever go at a pace or depth that you feel supported at. Critical to this is that you feel safe within the space of the therapy room and within our therapeutic relationship. 

In order to give us both time to understand the issues that have brought you to counselling and to help us form our collaborative relationship, I usually suggest that we work together for at least 6 sessions. 

​These are usually scheduled weekly to give some momentum. We will then decide together during the course of therapy when to reduce or finish sessions.

I am highly experienced at supporting people whose relationship with their body and / or food is affecting the quality of their life.

This might range from negative feelings about how you look or what you eat, or disordered eating, through to binge eating, an eating disorder or compulsive exercising. 

It can be particularly challenging to find a way through a difficult relationship with food, or our body. We need food to survive, and our body is there with us all the time. 

 

And it can be frustrating, and often isolating, when you know this relationship needs to change, but you don't know how to or where to begin.

I understand these challenges, and I also have many years of experience of helping people to address and improve these issues. 

It is very possible to form a healthy relationship with your body and food regardless of how difficult that might seem now.
