About me

I work with all addictions with a special interest in food addiction/overeating/obesity.  My journey to becoming qualified and working in this area began as a result of my own suffering from addiction and ultimately getting into recovery. Today I feel privileged to be working in this particular field sharing my experience, strength, optimism and professional knowledge in the unwavering hope that all my clients will walk free from the destructive eating behaviours that can take over all thought processes and be so damaging.

My basic technique is The Minnesota Method. This method is fundamental in the treatment of addictive processes. It is a biopsychosociospiritual approach  dealing with the psychological, physical, emotional and spiritual aspect of obsessive behaviours. It has a basis in the 12-step model which stresses abstinence, group support, cognitive and behavioural change and accepting and giving support to others in the same situation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Masters Degree in Addiction Counselling. I am fully accredited with The Federation of Drug & Alcohol Professionals.
I have been working in an addictions treatment centre since 2004 and am the lead counsellor/group facilitator for the eating disorders/food addiction group.
I am fully experienced in working with all addictions and have a special interest in working with eating disorders/obesity.
I have been in recovery from an eating disorder/addiction since 1990.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
