I am a qualified counsellor with a BSc (Hons) in psychology and additional qualifications in nutrition. I am based in Fontmell Magna in North Dorset.
I offer counselling for anxiety, depression, stress and issues of self-confidence and self-esteem. I have a particular area of expertise in eating disorders.
A Master Practitioner award from the National Centre for Eating Disorders and nutritional qualifications enable me to offer an individually-tailored service to anyone who has an eating disorder or who struggles to control their eating.
I can help with problems such as anorexia or bulimia, binge eating and over-eating. By using food therapy and counselling together I can help people to make the positive changes that they seek.
I understand that signing up for counselling is a big step and can feel scary so I offer all my potential clients a FREE 30 minute initial consultation. In this 30 minute session you have the chance to briefly outline your reasons for wanting counselling and I will give you information about me and the way that I work, then you can decide if counselling is right for you and if you would like to continue.
