I have a 10 week online therapy course - Steps Towards Intuitive Eating, beginning in September 2020. This is specifically designed to support people who are keen to embrace Intuitive Eating Principles but have a history of disordered eating. For more information, please visit http://rethinkyourbody.co.uk/10-week-intuitive-eating-course.htm
I am not offering face-to-face therapy sessions currently.
I am a specialist eating disorders counsellor. I have worked in the NHS and privately since 2003. I also regularly blog for Welldoing.org, Selfish Mother and RethinkyourBody about body image, your relationship with food and overcoming disordered eating. I have a podcast - The Eating Disorder Therapist, where I share stories and tips on recovery and interview guests.
I am passionate about helping people recover from eating problems and improving in their confidence and self-esteem. I am supportive of an anti-diet approach and Intuitive Eating Principles.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Counsellor (Dip. Counselling) and an accredited, registered member of BACP (MBACP (Accred). I also have specialist qualifications in eating disorders (Dip. Eating Disorders; Enhanced
CBT Eating Disorders; Masters Nutrition). I have worked in an NHS Eating Disorder Service (inpatient and outpatient) and also in private practice.
I have experience of working with people with Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder and OSFED (Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorder). I also work with people who have a disordered relationship with food who might not meet a clinical diagnosis of an eating disorder.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.

Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
