ABOUT FOOD AND
ME COUNSELLING

I am a bacp accredited integrative counsellor and I have worked in a variety of locations from GP surgeries, NHS services including IAPT, post cardiac clinics, bariatric services, colleges, community counselling and private practice. I became more focused on eating disorders when a close family member developed some difficulties. I am still actively involved in counselling other conditions such as anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement, abuse, etc, please use contact page for details. When not working I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, socialising, or just relaxing and catching up on a good box set.

Many people struggle for years with their relationship with food and eating, suffering years of yo-yo dieting in a repetitive cycle of losing and then regaining weight. Living their lives in a pattern of eating and then fearing weight gain and obsessing about food and weight. People living their lives in a pattern of binge eating, feeling ashamed and guilty followed by purging. Hating your own body image. A life filled with low self-esteem and self-worth linked to their body image.

Adam was skill-full in providing a sense of direction. Going into this without knowing what to expect made the experience seamless. A big thank you to Adam for making sense of it all.

It really helped me to understand why I feel like I do at times, it made me more aware of how I should react.

During the sessions Adam was absolutely brilliant in not only helping me understand my issues but also in providing ways to deal with them.

I cant believe where I have come from to where I am now. The counselling sessions have been a great help.

Very useful. Was nice to have someone who I could talk to and not worry about being judged on anything I said. Adam has helped me think about things differently than I had been.

I have found this experience very helpful, it has helped me organise and prioritise my problems so I can work through them and find solutions rather than worrying about everything all the time. I feel more confident and happier and more in control.
