Collaboration

Support for Eating Disorder recovery is offered by a multi-disclinplinary team including a GP, dietician and counsellor / psychologist, ideally all trained in working with people with eating disorders.  Rachael will collaborate with your other supports including your GP and dietician, if you have one.   Where possible support from family and loved ones can also support the recovery journey, Rachael offers both sessions with other family / supports as well as communication with supports on your terms.  Please note for people with a restrictive and / or purging type of eating disorder regular GP appointments are required for you to participate in counselling.

Values / approach

Rachael works from a holistic philosophy and believes in a weight neutral, non dieting approach to recovery from an eating disorder.  Together we will decide what our work together looks like, this will always include elements of physical recovery, where medically indicated, alongside other elements which may include exploring behaviours, thoughts, coping strategies and recoverying a sense of self.
