I run a specialist (online) clinic working with adults whose relationship with food gets in the way of living a fulfilled life. I specialise in compulsive overeating, overeating disorders and obesity. I’m warm and validating and offer a safe and confidential one-to-one space in which we work together to help you along your path towards psychological and physical wellbeing. As a side note, I myself made a full recovery from bulimia; something I never thought would be possible at the time.
If you have symptoms of compulsive overeating, binge eating disorder or bulimia, I will help you first and foremost to overcome these stressful symptoms that negatively impact your health and wellbeing and stop you from living the life you deserve. Compulsive overeating is a milder form of binge eating, where you may describe yourself as an 'emotional eater' or 'food addict.' I offer emotional exploration and practical guidance to help you to improve your relationship with food and with yourself, improve your body image and self-esteem, and move past your symptoms towards your life aspirations.
I trained first as an integrative therapist, then as a BPS-approved master practitioner in eating disorders and obesity (NCfED). I offer weekly one-to-one sessions, where we explore the psychological and physiological processes currently occurring for you, as well as the vital steps you can take on your individual journey towards wellness and wellbeing.

I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework.
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
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
£65.00 per session
Free initial online session
Concessions offered for
My fee is £65 per session (£55 for concessions).
I offer a free online consultation lasting up to half an hour, via a simple online video tool, so we can meet each other and I can explain how the process works as well as answer any questions you may have.
The process then begins with a detailed questionnaire for you to complete before attending our first session. We start with a full assessment, which includes screening for eating disorders, to help build a treatment plan that is right for you, and together we will gradually start to make sense of your situation and explore how to move forward.
