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, a Master Practitioner in Eating Disorders and a Certified Practitioner in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). 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.

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


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
