- Does your eating feel out of control?
- Do you eat when you're not hungry?
- Do you keep eating when you're full?
- Do you eat to avoid your feelings?
Suffering with compulsive eating, emotional eating or Binge Eating Disorder can feel shameful, confusing and lonely.
I've been helping people with these issues for many years and I know how vulnerable you feel trying to find someone who truly understands. It's important to me to provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space for you to explore your individual problems with food and weight.
We'd actively work to heal the issues underlying your eating, such as low self-esteem, difficulty expressing feelings, and the struggle with personal boundaries. We'd also explore the impact dieting has on your drive to binge, and focus on developing the calm and natural relationship with food you want and deserve.
Having resolved my own issues with binge eating many years ago, I'd really like to help you make peace with food and yourself.
I offer individual counselling as well as a small, monthly group session for clients with these issues - please see the Community page on my website for more details about the group.
I write a weekly blog as a resource for my clients which many of them find useful - you can follow it at www.juliederohan.com.
If you have any questions, it's OK to email me or call me - I'm happy to answer them. I always respond to genuine enquiries so if you haven't heard from me, and my reply isn't in your Junk or Spam folder, please feel free to contact me again.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Masters degree in Person-Centred Counselling from the University of East Anglia and have also trained in Schema Therapy with Schema Therapy Associates at the British Psychological Society in London.
I completed my MA research dissertation on compulsive eating and obesity in 2011. I've worked with clients with overeating issues since 2012, both in private practice and at the Norwich charity Eating Matters where I'm Team Leader of the Emotion-driven Overeating Section.
My Schema Therapy training included working with clients with Anxious, Avoidant, Dependent and Borderline Personality Disorders; as well as working with Narcissism, which is my secondary area of interest.
I'm a Registered and Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
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 membership
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Compulsive eating, emotional eating, body image, self-care, emotional resilience and self-compassion.
My fee is £45 for a 50-minute individual counselling session, £25 for group sessions.
Please note that I work with clients who don't compensate for their bingeing or overeating by purging, using laxatives or over-exercising. Therefore, my practice isn't suitable for people suffering with Bulimia Nervosa.
