Do you sometimes feel lost? Misunderstood – even though you try to explain? Or do you feel you need to hide your feelings from the world and try to struggle through. Do you tell yourself to just get on with things, but find it difficult to get ou of bed some days. Is life around you changing but you feel stuck in one place? Do your feelings lead to anxiuety, lack of confidence and self-worth, perhaps even depression. Do you sometimes even question your role in life and struggle to find the answer?
If any of the above sounds familiar, then I can work with you through the overwhelming feelings that can sometimes feel debilitating, and together we will untangle the thoughts anf feelings until you once again feel in control of your life.
I work via Skype and offer a free 15 minute meeting so you can get a `feel`for the session. Everyone who has taken up this offer has gone on to book sessions and on-line sessions are now proven across the world to be just as effective as face-to-face sessions.
Please contact me to book your session and take the first step to being free from emotional and mental strain.
I offer a choice of ON-LINE therapies which include: psychodynamic psychotherapy/counselling, analytical hypnotherapy and solution focused and cognitive hypnotherapy and I specialise in helping people overcome emotional eating and those experiencing anxiety.
I have included information below about the positive outcomes that on-line therapy has in comparison to face to face sessions.

The Within Reach Emotional Disordered Eating Programme: Taking control of your eating.
Does it feel like your eating habits are out of control?
Are you eating even when you are not hungry?
Do your emotions sometimes control what you eat?
Do you want to regain control?
The WithinReach with our Mindful Emotional Eating Programme can help you overcome your disordered eating.
Uncontrolled eating, obsessive eating, out of control eating, binge eating - no matter the label are all signs of disorded eating which has it`s roots in emotional triggers.
Disordered eating is slowly being recognised as a form of addiction - a compulsion that cannot be controlled.
The programme will identify your Disordered Eating scale, identify what your emotional triggers might be and includes exercises designed to slow down and challenge your impulsive Eat Response.
Hit the reset button on your eatings habits and take control back.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT ON YOUR KICK-START PROGRAMMEß
- An evaluation of your current eating habits and an assessment of the emotional triggers that prompt eating.
- A new eating plan. This is not a diet. This a plan to help kick start your new approach to food and to wipe the slate clean.
- Habit breaking mindful eating exercises to support the new Kick Start approach.
- Regular therapy and mindfulness sessions to help you begin to understand and undo the emotional triggers that `control` your eating.
- Visualisation exercises to keep you motivated and on track.
- The plan does not ask you weigh yourself. You will be advised to take measurements weekly, and to identify an item of clothing that does not currently fit – these will be your motivations.
- Optional hypnotherapy audios – these are not generic but are written for you using the work we do together as a guide to what will optimise your programme.
- Hypnotherapy sessions are recorded separately and are £25.00. They are sent as an audio file for you to keep and listen to at any time.

“I understand now the hole I was trying to fill with food, and I don’t need to fill it.”
