I work with the following issues:
You may be experiencing depression, anxiety, confusion and emotional torment. You are consumed by your weight, by food, by trying to gain control and struggling against feeling so out of control. You may be hiding what you are going through from others.
You can become locked in your private world and often those close to you have no idea of the intense struggle you are going through on a daily basis. On the surface it is about weight and food yet beneath this an eating disorder can be a response to a deeper issue such as family problems, relationship breakdowns, issues with self-esteem, grief and loss or trauma.
You may feel incredibly misunderstood and others may not understand that your issues with eating are not solved by simply eating a healthy diet. Often when friends or family are involved they can become incredibly frustrated because they think it is about losing weight, eating or not eating when really it is about how you feel about yourself. I will work with you the address your underlying feelings which you might not even be aware of so you can start to make healthier choices in your life.
My clients often speak of feeling incredibly worthless and inferior to everyone around them. Or feeling pressured to fit in, feel perfect or feel like they belong. When they speak to me it can be the first time they have felt that anyone has heard them.
I can offer you the support and understanding you need to overcome your issues with eating. I have worked with many clients suffering from various forms of eating disorders which has given me a unique insight into your experience. I believe that the key to recovery is about learning to process difficult emotions and to work on rebuilding your self-esteem.
I will provide you with a safe and supportive environment to explore what the feelings underneath your symptoms are. By exploring these underlying feelings you have a chance to overcome the negative feelings and the unhealthy behaviour patterns that are consuming your life. I believe once you have the experience of being listened to and understood that we can work together to overcome your eating disorder. I understand how trapped you feel and I can give you the gift of freedom from your eating issues through helping you develop a sense of trust in yourself.
