I trained as an Analytic psychotherapist under the supervision of Dr Ruth Hirons at Kent University.
I specialise in eating disorders for adolescents and adults, having worked for the NHS over the last 10 years. I believe the training of an Analytic psychotherapist never ends and I continue to combine my practice with further training. I am member of the European Federation of Psychotherapists and psychoanalysts.
I take a personal approach. We all have mental health issues and I focus on you, your needs and your issues. I take a non-judgemental approach to work with you to understand yourself better, become more self-aware and become better equipped to deal with the stresses and strains of modern life.
It's a collaborative approach that gives you the tools and strength to take control of your life.

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.

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).

What are Eating Disorders?
Eating disorders are conditions characterised by severe disturbances in eating behaviour that may involve insufficient or excessive intake of food to the detriment of the person's physical and mental health.
People with eating disorders place their value and self-worth exclusively on their shape, size and weight to the point where this becomes their only concern.
even though the media are often blamed for causing eating disorders, the real issues are much more complex than that, and psychotherapeutic work is needed for the person to be liberated from the disorder.
