Psychotherapy in Bushey, Hertfordshire
Eating disorders specialist
Life can be daunting when you wake up in the morning anxiously thinking about how you will get through the day. Going to bed do you find yourself lying awake worrying about who you may have upset, what you may have said wrong and feeling desperately alone?
Maybe you try to downplay these thoughts with “others are worse off than me!” Perhaps you have a sense of what’s 'wrong' in your life, yet somehow this ‘knowing’ makes no difference. Trying to rationalise what is behind your anxiety or depression does not change how you feel!
I work with clients seeking professional support for a variety of psychological difficulties which includes eating disorders, trauma, depression and anxiety. Each person comes with their unique history, what they have in common is the impact on their self-esteem and this undoubtedly stretches to the relationships they have with others.
Eating disorders, whether anorexia, bulimia, emotional over-eating or binge eating is my specialist area. As you will read on my 'eating disorders' page what I am truly interested in is you as a 'whole' person. Beyond the symptoms I see a person in emotional pain and turmoil. Moving forward is about learning to like yourself, appreciating that life is not black and white, perfect or catastrophic, there is a life to be had without your eating disorder.
Therapy offers you different possibilities
Therapy can be a leap into the unknown, You may have experienced therapy in the past, perhaps it helped for a time, or didn’t, back then. Timing, or 'personal readiness' is a factor yet time is passing, maybe therapy can enable you to find new possibilities in your life.
I believe the relationship we have is the most important factor in our work together. I can’t tell you if I’m right for you but meeting is a useful and courageous step forward.
As a qualified, experienced psychotherapist my aim is to provide a place for you to safely explore the challenges you are finding hard to deal with alone. This is your time, to find a more resilient, gentler perspective of yourself, your relationships and your place in the world.
