About me


I am  co-founder of Anorexic Aid, now known as B-eat, (see www.b-eat.co.uk) and sit on the B-eat Governing Council, I am a qualified psychotherapist. Working with my clients across a range of psychological problems I specialise in eating disorders, including anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating or overeating. I believe they are always a sign of a much deeper anxiety.With your life feeling out of control, your food/ body has become a way of attempting to feel 'in control' your thinking is masked by calories, weight, maybe excessive exercising and diets that always fail. With all the strategies you put in place life remains overwhelmingly lonely; perfectionism is never achieved, an inner sense of emptiness and inadequacy takes over any sense of your self.

What I aim to provide is a safe, confidential space that will enable you to explore what seems to be getting in the way from you being more connected to and secure with yourself and how you relate with others. You may have had previous experience of therapy or this is your first time; it is always a big step into the unknown as you ask yourself 'will this make my life better?  It is my belief that no matter how much you tell yourself or others "I'm fine"  your world remains a deeply lonely, unhappy place and working on what makes you unhappy is not something you can do alone.  Your identity is more than your illness and I am committed to supporting my clients find a new way to engage with life.


I have a private practice in North West London. I worked for 3 years at a London teaching hospital where I worked with patients who were struggling with long terms psychological challenges, including trauma, personality disorders, anxiety and depression.
