I secialise in working with eating disorders including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and body dysmorphia, holding an Advanced Diploma from the National Centre for Eating Disorders (NCFED).

I have significant experience of working with people dealing with mental health issues and am a voluntary counsellor for Mind, the mental health charity (www,

I also offer a transformational life coaching programme for those wishing to solve specific problems or achieve specific goals.  Using a combimation of personality profiling, goal setting and project management techiniques alongside therapeutic interventions makes this a powerful and motivational experience.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I specialise in Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Relationship counselling. The counselling methods that I use are systemic approaches, which means that they are helpful for working with individuals within the contexts of their environments and their relationships, but also in situations where there may be more than one person involved, for example working with couples, dyads, families, groups or teams.

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Treatment Skills for Eating Disorders from the National Centre for Eating Disorders (NCFED), including nutritional interventions.

I hold a Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy (DHP) and am an Advanced Practitioner of Brainworking Recursive Therapy™ (BWRT®), a Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and an Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) practitioner. I have completed specialist training in several areas including working with eating disorders, working with mental health disorders, managing the effects of physical conditions such as chronic pain, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), Tinnitus, hypnotherapy for weight management, dealing with phobias and eliminating problem habits.

  • I am registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (registration number 001154-L10). The CNHC is the government accredited UK voluntary register for complementary healthcare practitioners (approved by the Professional Standards Authority).

  • I continue to keep my skills up to date with further study and ongoing training; this, as well as my affiliation with BACP, NCH and CNHC means that I am able to remain current on regulatory matters pertaining to the use of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy and to make sure that I am complying with all statutory requirements.
  • I follow the BACP Ethical Framework and am bound by both the NCH and the CNHC codes of conduct.

Further information

Both of my practice rooms are in private, comfortable and peaceful locations and provide free client parking.  My Great Missenden clinic has a comfortable reception/waiting area with complementary hot drinks.

Evening sessions available at both locations

I offer a free initial consultation to help you decide if I am the right therapist for you.

Whilst I am happy to work with older teenagers and young adults, I do not work with children. The youngest age I work with is 16, except for eating disorders where it is 13.

Unfortunately, neither of my practices are currently fully accessible for disabled clients. My Loudwater practice has several steps up to the main door and my Great Missenden practice is located on the first floor with no elevator and a narrow flight of stairs. Please call me to discuss if this is of concern.
