Transform your relationship with food. 6 weeks to a new you.
Change your life forever, dieting doesn’t work, therefore, make changes that will make you happy, diet no more and gain the peace of mind you have always yearned for, and learn the tools needed to keep it that way.
I promise that I will not weigh you & clap along with everyone else if you have lost weight & I will guide you appropriately if you are fearful of gaining weight. I will not suggest a food replacement liquid diet or detoxing on the latest fad to hit the paper. Yet if you invest some time with me, you can permanently change your mindset and your relationship with food.

Your course leader
Bernie is one of our most experienced qualified eating disorder therapists. She says ‘this is why I have developed this course’.
I work as a BACP (Accred.) Counsellor & Qualified Clinical Supervisor. I qualified in 2005 & quickly recognised a common denominator between the majority of my clients – low self-esteem, poor body image & problems with assertiveness. They tended to use anger as a way of communicating or were easily intimidated and/or bent against their will. So many of my clients were presenting in this way, with self-loathing & a limited ability to be kind to themselves. Furthermore, I worked with a lot of clients who were clinically obese or painfully skinny & I learned very quickly that even the ones presenting with normal body weight were often abusing themselves by self-harming, substance abuse, poor diet – often coupled with difficult & challenging relationships with themselves & others. So many were clearly using food to self-medicate, either by overeating or under-eating. So, I trained as a Master Practitioner in Eating Disorders & Obesity, with The National Centre for Eating Disorders & ensure my skills remain cutting edge.
