About me

I specialise in weight loss, Eating Problems, Disordered eating, food addiction, Binge Eating Disorder, obesity, and ARFID.

Have you tried many diets, and you've lost the weight only to put it back on again? 

Have you had enough and do you want it to change for good? 

Many people come to me because they are tired of being overweight, they have health issues due to their eating problems and they are fed up having tried diet after diet and nothing works. Many suffer from anxiety and or health anxiety and feel despondent due to their weight.

I help you get to the root of your eating problems.  When we work on the root of any issue, we untangle your eating patterns and you start to gain new perspective and healthier habits. The results become sustainable and long-lasting. Weight loss becomes easier and you develop a positive relationship with food. Many people find that they end up feeling happier, more confident, and more importantly, lose weight.

We go through a process where we look at what you want, where you are now, and what is stopping you. We look at what your deeper issues are that are causing your eating problems and work on them. I facilitate the healing process from childhood and adulthood. 

Throughout the process people report; Losing weight sustainably so the weight stays off, Healing past hurts so life becomes enjoyable, finding new and healthier eating habits, and eating problems and issues become resolved so food stops taking over their lives. 

I have trained and qualified in; Hypno-Psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, counseling, NLP, EFT, EMDR, CBT, inner child therapy, gastric band hypnotherapy, binge eating and obesity, and emotional eating. Analytical hypnotherapy and suggestion hypnotherapy.

I have been a practicing therapist for many years and have helped many people overcome their eating problems and helped them with long-lasting weight loss.

It is not just about weight loss, but it's about finding your inner confidence, finding peace and acceptance within yourself. All of this helps to create a happier you and when we are happy then we tend to treat our bodies much better and naturally go towards healthier food.
