"I understood as I had done myself, that their issues had nothing to do with food, it was merely a coping strategy for their emotional distress and low self-esteem"
Hi, I'm Claire
I am an Eating Disorder Therapist on a mission to help women break free from binge eating and gain food freedom!
I spent most of my teens and early adulthood struggling with low self-esteem and poor body image.
What started off as a diet to lose some weight and gain confidence progressed quickly to restrictive eating and overexercising. Within a few months….
I was in the grips of a restrict and binge eating cycle, which soon led to purging behaviours of overexercising or vomiting.
This cycle continued for a number of years, until I eventually worked through my own recovery.
Despite being ‘recovered’ I still spent the next 15 years in constant pursuit of an unattainable body ideal and never really made peace with myself as I was.
After a few years practising as a Psychotherapist and hearing women tell stories about their Food, Weight and Body image issues I understood, as I had done myself, that their issues had nothing to do with food.
Food had merely become a coping strategy to manage the psychological and emotional stressors in their life.
To gain as much knowledge as I could into the relationship between Food, Mind and Body, I have sought out training by leading experts in the field over the last seven years.
I’m a fully accredited Eating Disorder Therapist and offer 1:1 therapy programmes that are tailored to individual needs.
Although my core training is in CBT, as my experience and knowledge has broadened, I love to integrate more alternative treatment techniques such as EFT (Tapping) and RTT (Transformational Hypnotherapy) to my practice.
Clients often report that these ‘alternative’ techniques have impacted them on a deeper emotional level because they enabled them to identify and release the root cause of their limiting beliefs quickly.
My training and experience encompasses Eating Disorder Recovery, Nutrition and Energy Psychology modalities. This enables a unique, holistic approach to your recovery.
Whilst, like most women, I still have bad body image days, I am at peace with who I am and no longer battle with food or the reflection in the mirror.
I truly want to help women overcome their Food, Weight and Body Image issues, so they don’t need to spend countless years in pursuit of Self-Acceptance and Food Freedom.
I deliver a professional service offering a variety of therapeutic interventions for Non-diet Health & Weight Management and Disordered Eating Recovery.
