Eating Disorders & Concern with Eating

Struggling with your eating or having an eating disorder can feel very frightening and very isolating.  It can sometimes feel difficult, if not almost impossible to ask for help.  However, taking the step to getting help and support can be key in helping you to move forward.

 

Counselling can help you to begin to take back control of your life.  It can also help you to understand your relationship with food and eating and to also understand and work through the issues relating to your eating difficulties.

 

I have specific training and experience of working with:-

 

  • Compulsive, Emotional and Over-eating
  • Binge Eating Disorder
  • Bulimia Nervosa *
  • Anorexia Nervosa *
  • Body Image Concerns/Body Distortion
  • Pre-Bariatric Psychological Support and Lifestyle Change
  • (* In conjunction with your medical professional, ie GP, Nurse, Consultant)

Weight Concern

 

I adopt a refreshing and empowering approach that helps YOU gain control of your food and eating so that you can enjoy life without worrying about what you're eating.  

 

I Use Evidence Based Approaches such as:

 

To help you:- 

  • Overcome emotional eating, over-eating and binge eating by understanding your triggers and developing techniques to over-ride these habits/behaviours.
  • Explore the balance of your lifestyle and support you in making healthy adjustments where necessary.
  • Develop relaxation techniques that combat stress-eating and promote a sense of well-being.
  • Develop a healthy relationship with food.
  • Create a more positive attitude to how you view yourself, freeing you from guilt and shame often associated with weight issues, and promoting a more balanced and compassionate sense of self.   

 

As an Integrative therapist, I draw on psychological evidence based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Approaches to aid in the recovery and management of these conditions.
