Binge Eating Disorder and HSP Specialist

About me

**PLEASE NOTE: My practice is currently full. There are a couple of spaces available on my waiting list if you'd like to contact me.

  • 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 distressing, shameful 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 struggles with food and body image.

We'd actively work to heal the issues underlying your eating, such as developmental trauma; low self-esteem; difficulty expressing your feelings; identifying your personal boundaries; and understanding your emotional needs.

We'd also explore the negative impact dieting has on your drive to binge, and focus on developing the autonomous 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'm a highly sensitive person (HSP) and I specialise in working with clients who are also highly sensitive.

I write a blog as a resource for people who binge eat which you're welcome to follow at juliederohan.com.

I also provide training on understanding binge eating to mental health practitioners and medical professionals. Please contact me to discuss your training requirements.

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 exclusively with clients with overeating disorders since 2012, both in private practice and at the Norwich charity Eating Matters where I'm Team Leader of the Emotion-driven Overeating Section.

I've successfully completed Dr. Elaine Aron's programme on Psychotherapy and the Highly Sensitive Person and am an HSP-knowledgeable therapist.

I'm a Registered and Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a certified online therapist.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
