About me

I am a registered and experienced nutritional therapist and counsellor, I specialise in helping women who struggle with binge eating, emotional overeating and long term weight and body image concerns.

I offer nutrition counselling to help you achieve a relaxed, healthy and balanced relationship with food and eating. 

Why work with me?

  • I can support you to achieve freedom from disordered eating patterns, feeling out of control around food and constant dieting and bingeing/overeating.
  • My practice is weight inclusive and compassionate, there is no judgement of you, your size, shape or eating habits.
  • I use my extensive training in nutrition, eating psychology, mindfulness and counselling to offer a personalised support package which works for you.
  • I believe in simple, achievable and sustainable changes which lead to consistent and lasting impacts on your health and wellbeing.
  • I don't use restrictive diets or weight loss plans, these are unhelpful and unsustainable for people with disordered eating issues. We'll work together to find a balanced, nourishing way of eating that allows you to enjoy food as well as meet your nutritional needs.
  • We’ll work on understanding what’s driving your eating behaviours and discover the triggers for binges and overeating. I offer a safe space where you can explore how past experiences and events may be causing you to use food as an emotional coping mechanism.

Our goal will be to achieve effortless, compassionate self-care and peace around food and eating. This is not a quick fix, but it is a lasting solution to issues you may have struggled with for life.

Further information

Eating and body image issues are often deep seated and may have been a lifelong challenge for you. I am not offering a ‘quick fix’ approach, but rather an opportunity for you to deeply explore your issues and work towards lasting and sustainable change- a commitment which will benefit your health and wellbeing for life.
