Counselling for Eating Disorders
Sessions are charged at £60 each*.
A minimum of 48 hours notice is required when cancelling appointment/s, or the full fee would be payable.
I do not offer any concessionary rates. However, I work hard to keep my fees reasonable when compared to others who are working in this area.
I am registered as a provider with BUPA, AXA and Aviva.
Face-to-face sessions are currently on hold but may be available again next year.
A limited number of online sessions are currently available.
Due to the demands and requirements of my working roles I primarily see counselling clients on weekday mornings or throughout the day on a Saturday. I am unable to offer weekday evening spaces.
Clients I work with:
I work with a wide variety of clients, from age 16 and upwards.
One way that my approach is different to that of other Eating Disorder provisions therapy providers is that I don’t have any specific referral criteria and I work with clients of all different body shapes and sizes, from different backgrounds and from age 16 to 100. I consider an ‘Eating Disorder’ to be simply any instance in which your relationship to food and weight has become intertwined with your mental health.
Many clients come to me after previously accessing other Eating Disorder services, perhaps because they want additional support or because they have not found the approach provided by local services to be of lasting help to them. Often these clients have previously been diagnosed with Anorexia or Bulimia.
Additionally, clients might consider working with me because they have not met the referral criteria for their local service, or have found there to be a long wait. Such clients might have a diagnosis such as ‘Atypical’ Anorexia or OSFED or might be experiencing binge eating, emotional eating or issues with long term dieting.
Essentially, if you feel that a space to discuss any of these types of challenges (or related ones) might be of help to you, then you might be interested in getting in touch.
Physical health monitoring:
Eating Disorders in all their shapes and sizes present with increased physical risks. It is therefore very important that I take those risks seriously. This means that I require all clients presenting with Eating Disorders or disordered eating to be in regular contact with their GP (or an appropriate professional). I will support you to arrange this if requested.
