Mates in Mind

Hello and welcome to my profile. I am a qualified and accredited Integrative Counsellor – where I take the view, there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. A combined approach of psychotherapy is used, bringing together different elements of specific therapies. I am a Disordered Eating and Obesity Clinician, holding specialist qualifications for working with eating disorders, anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, compulsive eating disorders and obesity.
My approach is fully holistic and incorporates psychological interventions with nutritional support and mind/body therapies to initiate and facilitate a process of positive change in all areas of life. We value your privacy greatly and work within a strict set of ethical and professional guidelines. Your safety and confidentiality are paramount.
