Counselling for Eating Problems and Disorders

I offer counselling and psychotherapy for eating disorders, weight loss and food problems from York or by phone/video link/online worldwide.

Whether you have an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia or binge eating, or just wish you had a less complicated relationship with food, counselling is a great way to help you:
  • regulate your eating and stop swinging between dieting and bingeing
  • feel better about yourself and improve your body image
  • make food and eating less of an obsession - life’s too short to be worrying about every calorie
  • talk openly about your feelings in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental setting
  • improve other areas of your life so food becomes less important
  • discover what lies behind the need for you to use over-use food as comfort and/or as self-harm
  • find less harmful coping strategies to deal with life's difficulties
  • work out ways to exercise and look after your body without obsession
  • make peace with your past


My interest in eating problems

I trained as a counsellor with the primary purpose of working with eating problems. I had difficulties in this area myself in my teens and twenties and really wanted to use that experience in a positive way once I’d recovered. I hope and believe that going through it myself has given me extra understanding when working with clients who are struggling with their eating.

I’ve worked as a volunteer on the BEAT helpline and many of my clients are referred to me via them. I’ve written articles for their magazine and you can find my details on their website: www.b-eat.co.uk/HelpandSupport/HelpFinder (go to North Yorkshire).

I run training courses for other counsellors in how to work with disordered eating and provide specialist supervision in this area.  I'm frequently asked to address groups and schools to talk about eating problems. Please contact me if this is something you would like to organise.

As well as face to face sessions at my premises in York, I offer phone, video link or online counselling for eating disorders and eating problems in the UK and worldwide. I believe distance work is not second best: it gives you access to a specialist service such as mine
and can be particularly useful if you struggle with body image issues and would find it difficult to be face to face with a counsellor. Please contact me if you would like more details.
