I am a highly professional Counselling Psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society.
I am passionate about helping people with Eating Disorders, Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) and disordered eating. I am experienced in delivering both group and individual therapy and work collaboratively to empower people to achieve their individual goals. I also offer individual and group support to loved ones of people who are suffering from Eating Disorders and related difficulties. I have published several journal papers about the experiences of people with Body Dysmorphic Disorder and have written book chapters about qualitative research methods including narrative research and visual methods.
I am proud to work as Psychological Therapies Lead at Orri, where I provide specialist day treatment for people with Eating Disorders. Prior to this I was the Lead Therapist for Eating Disorders at Nightingale Hospital, London.
I believe that it is very importance to raise awareness about Eating Disorders, BDD and disordered eating and regularly present to other health professionals about these conditions. I am media trained and have been quoted in many magazines and newspapers including The Telegraph, The Guardian and The Independent. My television appearances include Newsnight, ITV Lunchtime News and BBC World News. The radio shows that I have been featured on include BBC Live 5 and the World at One.
