About me

I help people who have issues with weight and eating to change their relationship with food.

Problems with food and eating disorders, like people, come in many shapes.  For some people food and eating has come to control their lives, they are constantly thinking about when and what to eat, and more seriously, some people plan how to avoid eating.

I help people to take back control by exploring the issues that underlying the current problem and by working with them to achieve a healthy and well balanced eating plan that answers all their nutritional needs.

I offer personalised and confidential counselling for eating disorders and other eating related issues. I also offer counselling for depression, anxiety, stress and other non-food related issues.

My practice is based in North Dorset and I offer a FREE 30-minute initial consultation.  In this short session you can briefly outline your reasons for wanting counselling and I will tell about the way that I work.  You can then decide if my counselling is right for you, and if you would like to continue.

If you want to change your relationship with food and stop eating ruling your life, contact me now.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
