About Me


I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor, specialising in and passionate about the treatment of eating disorders and body image disturbance. Although I have specialist qualifications in these areas I am also skilled at working with a wide array of problems and challenges that may be faced during the course of life.


I work with people as individuals and integrate a variety of counselling and psychotherapeutic 

models in my work in order to best meet my clients needs; I also draw upon the use of the latest behavioural and positive psychology, ancient wisdom, mindfulness and creativity. My work is underpinned by the belief that given the right conditions people can heal and grow to fulfil their true potential.

 

People that have worked with me say that they appreciate my 

personal qualities of compassion, attentiveness, insightfulness 

and positivity.


I hold an Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic 

Counselling and a further Masters Degree in Working with

People with Eating Disorders and Body Image Disturbance

from The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. 

I am an Associate Member of the Tavistock Society of 

Psychotherapists and a member of the British Association

for Counselling and Psychotherapy,whose guidelines for

ethical practice I abide by.



I have a particular interest in working with the mind

body connection and have worked with Somerset 

and Wessex Eating Disorders Association for the 

past ten years, currently in the role of Clinical 

Lead where I am responsible for the supervision and clinical development of the service. 


I am a visiting lecturer at Universities, where I teach sessions both for counsellors and for other professionals who may need to use counselling skills or who need knowledge of Eating Disorders..



For information on sessions and fees, please see my 'services' page or contact me for an informal chat.
