Sarah Dosanjh – psychotherapist specialising in binge eating and body image
I understand the fear, the misery and the obsession that takes you over when you are controlled by food; when your self-worth and sense of well being becomes defined by what you did or didn't eat today. I'm sure you have tried many times to gain control. Sometimes it might feel like you are acting against your own will when it comes to your eating. My stance is a hopeful one, I do believe it is possible to transform your relationship with food.
Finding a therapist that knows how to help can be challenging. I always suggest clients have a look at my YouTube channel first (search The Binge Eating Therapist). This way you will be able to get a sense of me and how I work with emotional, compulsive and binge eating. If my approach resonates, please feel free to get in touch. I offer individual and group therapy as well as a recovery community with free monthly Zoom support meetings.
You are not weak or lacking in willpower, there is nothing wrong with you at the fundamental level. You are human and you are probably feeling confused, stuck and anxious, maybe even hopeless, but you are here, looking for help, which means there must be a part of you that believes you deserve better. I believe that too.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
