Send an email or use the contact box below with a brief message of what you want to work on in therapy.
I will message back to organise a free 10-15 minute phone consultation. During this consultation we can discuss your concerns and make sure I am the right person to help.
If you decide to go ahead we can book in an initial assessment.
How many sessions will I need?
This can vary depending on a number of factors including how long you have been struggling for, the severity of your struggles and how ready you are to make changes.
As a general guide, the National Institue for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends:
16-20 sessions CBT-E for binge eating
Up to 20 sessions for bulimia
Up to 40 sessions for anorexia
However, if you have milder eating or body image difficulties you may require fewer sessions.
If you are limited to a certain number of sessions due to private health insurance or financial constraints let your clinician know and they will work within this.
