Mim Chapman MBACP
I have been helping people overcome struggles with stress, anxiety and problems relating to food for many years. I recognise that it is a big step to reach out for help and I understand that everyone's distress is unique. My aim is to truly listen to what is difficult for you and help you find a safe route to a more confident and enjoyable way of being.
You can live your life without constant anxiety or distressing eating patterns. I can help you understand your relationship with both your body and with food, find new ways of coping and how to manage your emotions in a healthy way. This is a talking therapy with some practical elements which will be tailored for you. It might include specific mindfulness techniques, EMDR-based exercises, cognitive work, EFT (tapping) or outdoor experience depending on what is comfortable and appropriate for you.

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.
