Dr Romi Ran
I provide a range of psychological and wellbeing services to individuals, couples and families. This includes Psychological Assessments, Therapeutic Interventions and Wellness and Life Coaching.
I provide clients with a confidential, warm, empathic and non-judgemental space to talk about the difficulties they are experiencing and help overcome them.
My experience and training has enabled me to develop expertise in various treatment models. Sessions are conducted around the individual needs of my clients, so I never employ a 'one-size fits all' approach. I treat clients across the age span (children, adolescents, adults and older adults) experiencing a multitude of difficulties.
In recent years my clinical and academic work has focused on the field of Eating Disorders. I have extensive experience working with individuals suffering from Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge Eating Disorders. I am also experienced in working with individuals who may not have an “Eating Disorder”, but who suffer from disordered-eating symptoms, such as emotional overeating, yo-yo dieting, and negative relationship with food or body image.
I currently split my time between the United States and the United Kingdom so I am not taking on new clients in my clinic. I can offer remote sessions using Skype or video conferencings during the evening or on the weekend.
