I have chosen to focus the counselling arm of my psychotherapeutic practice on helping people overcome stressful/distressing eating behaviours.
I have worked for a long time with people who have eating disorders and I love the work but have branched out to include disordered eating as this can also have a serious impact on quality of life.
Apart fromt the desire, passion and drive to treat eating, I have qualifications and experience.

Certificate in Counselling Supervision
Advanced Diploma Therapeutic Counselling
I am an accredited member of the BACP - reg no. 87154 and member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers
I work for Somerset NHS Foundation Trust as a Senior Psychological Therapist and Supervisor. I am also a unit leader and lecturer on the University of Bath Addictions Counselling degrees.
I am currently undertaking doctoral research.
