    Eating Disorders. Obesity. Nutritional Counselling

  • Are you preoccupied with food and eating to the point that it rules your life?
  • Do you struggle with controlling your eating and your weight?
  • Is your eating habits harming your health?
    If so, you may have an eating disorder.

    I offer specialist treatment for eating disorders, obesity, weight management, and nutritional counselling.
    The most common eating disorders are:
  • Compulsive Eating and Binge Eating Disorder
  • Bulimia Nervosa
  • Anorexia Nervosa
    For more information on eating disorders Click Here

    Treatment for obesity and weight management is different from the treatment of an eating disorder. Treatment does not require going on yet another diet. For more information on obesity treatment and weight management Click Here

    Diagnosis can be helpful but often they do not always fit with people's struggles around food and weight. If you think your eating rules your life, contact me for an assessment.

    Intensive Workshops and Coaching for couples

    In the busy lives that we lead and with childcare issues, it is sometimes a struggle for couples to find the time to commit to weekly or fortnightly sessions.
    This is with this in mind that I offer intensive workshops for couples. Positive change can occur with intensive workshops and it requires less commitment than attending weekly couples therapy.
    The Intensive Coaching sessions are suitable for couples of all sexual orientations. For more information Click Here
