Frequently Asked Questions

How will Therapy and Counselling help ?

As a counsellor, I believe in treating the underlying conflicts that breed unhelpful symptoms. Successful therapy is not just a function of information obtained - but the result of the relationship between client and counsellor.

Counselling aims at developing a healthy relationship with food, enabling the client to feel free to explore their thoughts, feelings and beliefs, helping them to understand the nature of their problem and work towards increased emotional competence.

It may also focus on relapse prevention by helping the client to modify the negative thought patterns that could have contributed towards their problems.

Each client will contruct for herself/himself a new, unique therapy based entirely upon their personality and presenting symptoms.
