About me

I offer Professional, Compassionate & Confidential Therapy in Reading, Berkshire and the surrounding areas. I am an experienced Hypnotherapist & BACP Registered Therapeutic Counsellor (Integrative) and specialise in Eating Disorders & Weight Management.  I aim to offer a warm, gentle and non-judgmental approach to therapy in a comfortable, safe and confidential environment.

Are you using food to cope with the pressures of life or for emotional comfort rather than for self nourishment?
Would you like to learn how you can change your relationship with food, including your attitude towards eating and weight?

Imagine how life would be if you could…

  • Stop dieting and start living
  • Stop food cravings and take back control of your weight
  • Enjoy every mouthful you eat and still maintain a healthy weight
  • Eat whenever you are hungry and stop when you are full
  • Eliminate emotional and comfort eating and start nourishing
  • and taking care of yourself without turning to food
  • Feel better about yourself and have more energy
  • Maintain a healthy weight for life

Many people who suffer from the painful cycles of weight loss and weight gain, or yo-yo dieting, know all too well that diets don’t work in the long term. Reducing and maintaining a healthy weight is not just about stopping eating, depriving or skipping meals. It’s more about understanding and changing the emotional reasons behind your desire to overeat – the often desperate and uncontrollable need to “self-soothe” with food.  It’s just as much about changing your mindset as it is about changing your lifestyle.

You will receive the support you need to help you explore and resolve your difficulties with food and eating.

Therapy sessions are tailored specifically for your individual needs, to ensure that you get the results you desire, and are conducted in a highly professional & ethical manner.
