YOU CAN MAKE PEACE WITH FOOD...
Unsure how to enjoy a peaceful relationship with food?
Feeling guilty about what you eat and the amount you eat?
Do you find yourself binging or overeating to cope with emotional distress and then feel depressed?
Do you feel anxious around food?
Do you blame yourself for an apparent lack of self-control?
If this resonates with you maybe it's time to talk to someone in confidence and get support.
People who learned to relate to food in healthier ways have reported the following benefits:
- Decreased stress levels
- A lift in depression
- Increased inner peace
- Better relationships
- Increased self-esteem
- Increased self-acceptance
- Increased self-awareness
I working with people who struggle with their relationship with food listen and connect to their body to discover healthier ways of relating to food and enjoy peaceful eating.
Whist everyone indulges from time to time, when it turns into unhealthy patterns such as binging, compulsive eating, or emotional eating it can leave a person feeling guilty, depressed or stuck.
Some people also find themselves in the yo-yo dieting cycle and despite trying "to be good" find themselves unsatisfied with the long term results as they struggle to keep up with the diet rules.
The combination of dealing with overwhelming feelings with food and/or striving so hard to be "healthy" by means of dieting can have a big impact the person's self-esteem, body image and ultimately emotional health.
I have been qualified for almost 10 years and hold a qualification in Person Centred Therapy, a certificate in CBT skills and over 30 hours of professional development training each year.
I am a Registered Member of the BACP and Accredited Member of the NCS.
HOW I WORK
As a therapist, I am interested in you as a whole, your uniqueness and individuality as well as your experiences. I will be accepting and non-judgemental.
I am here to support you in exploring issues around your relationship with food and how they are affecting you right now.
Together we can look at healthier ways of relating to food that support you in being more at peace not only with food but ultimately yourself.
You are in charge of your therapeutic journey and my role is to create a trusting relationship that provides you with a safe space where you can be in touch with your feelings and talk without fear about your concerns.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN A FIRST SESSION
The first session is an opportunity for you to tell me about you and for us both to decide how we are going to work together. It also involves filling in some paperwork in the first 5 minutes. The session lasts 50 minutes and I see clients weekly or fortnightly. I usually advise 6 sessions to start with but if you feel that you need less or more we can discuss what best suits you.
* If there is no immediate answer when you call it is possible I am in a session. Please leave me a message asking me to contact you and I will return your call as soon as possible. If you prefer you can also email or text for further details or to arrange a callback time.
*Counselling is not a crisis service. If you need immediate support please call Samaritans on 116123 or Childline on 08001111. Alternatively, you may also contact your GP.
