About me

Hello and welcome.

Hi. I offer counselling support to men, women, and young people who are trying to make sense of what's going on or make changes in their lives. I am based at the LIfestuff Counselling Centre in Newmarket.

I work with people facing challenges from all kinds of issues including depression, anxiety, bereavement and loss, physical, emotional and sexual abuse, self harm, addiction (including internet porn), low self esteem, sexual identity, body image and weight and eating challenges. I am an LGBT affirmative counsellor and I have undertaken training in working with transgender people.

My work with young people from the age of 13 upwards has helped them resolve problems they are experiencing with body image and eating challenges, self harm, anger, bullying, family difficulties, and low self esteem and low mood.

Over the past few years I have become particularly interested in working with people with issues around Eating Disorders, and challenges around weight, body image and eating. My training through the NCFED and the Institute of Psychology for Eating has been comprehensive and wide reaching drawing on nutritional, psychological and behavioural inputs to offer informed, balanced and safe ways of working with these issues.

I work with Mind-Body Nutrition which  goes far beyond classical nutrition by focusing on the connections between brain, body, and behaviour and reveals how stress physiology, the relaxation response, breathing, awareness, pleasure, meal timing and much more profoundly influence digestion and calorie burning. And it offers practical and results-oriented strategies for the most commonly seen eating challenges and health issues of our times.
