Therapy for Women | Stop Binging | Stop yo-yo Dieting
I work with people experiencing all sorts of difficulties as well as those who use food to help them manage their day to day lives. If you want to stop overeating, stop binging, stop comfort eating, stop purging and stop yo-yo dieting then psychotherapy with me could help. I will support you and offer strategies and ideas to help you to find a happier, more comfortable relationship with food and your body.
Sometimes when life is overwhelming, stressful, scary, sad, angry making or confusing we can feel that no one understands and that we are really alone. Many of us use food to manage our feelings because they feel too much. Some people use alcohol or drugs – others over or under eat. It is a way of coping – a symptom rather than the problem itself. That is is why dieting usually does not work longterm.
I am a warm, empathic and responsive humanistic psychotherapist (and a Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP). I will focus on you and listen compassionately and impartially in a way which could be more satisfying and useful for you then when you speak to your friends or family, however well meaning they are.
Here are are some examples of concerns you might wish to work on:
- Anger and managing your angry feelings
- Bereavement and grief
- Body image concerns/Dysmorphia
- Compulsive overeating, emotional and comfort eating
- Creative block
- Difficulties in forming and sustaining relationships
- Difficulties in your partnership or marriage
- Difficult relationship with food
- Dream therapy
- Eating disorder
- Life balance for working mothers or carers

- Motherhood, parenting and family
- Panic Attacks/Phobias
