About me

My Eating Therapy practice is solely dedicated to providing specialist help and support to those suffering with any kind of eating disorder or problem, or to their carers (anyone aged 14 years and over).  With previous personal experience, both as a sufferer and as a carer, I am also a fully trained Integrative counsellor and a Master Practitioner in Eating Disorders. Whether your struggles are with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, obesity, disordered eating, or any of the many other related food and weight issues, I want to help you to understand what lies beneath your own unique eating puzzle and to enable you to realise that your personal battle does not have to stay the same as it is now.

I see clients at my Consulting Room in central Chichester.

Training, qualifications & experience

Master Practitioner in Eating Disorders (National Centre for Eating Disorders: NCFED).
Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Therapy.
Transactional Analysis 101 (Institute of Transactional Analysis: ITA).

Additional training also includes Nutritional Skills for Eating Disorders; Practitioner Skills in Obesity Management; Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy; and Sandtray Therapy (Jungian, Family Constellation & TA).

The foundations for my client work is as a Person-Centred Integrative therapist, which means that, above all else, I believe you are the person who knows yourself best, and that together, through an holistic mix of therapeutic methods, you can discover what you truly need in your life.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accredited register membership
