    Coming from an emotionally-focused perspective, I encourage exploration and expression of feelings as the road to awareness and understanding of who we are. This can be during a crisis, when making difficult decisions or just taking stock of life. Helping people to speak about, focus on, experience and express their inner world brings healing and change. I also encourage exercise, writing, mindfulness practice, reading and other creative tasks to help support this process of change.When working with Eating disorder clients I work in partnership with a GP or Psychiatrist.
