Counselling is a confidential, secure, non-judgemental talking therapy. You will be invited to take the opportunity, in a supported way, to talk and explore yourself, your relationship with food and your body. You may also examine current and historical problems, with the purpose of gaining insights into your feelings and behaviour and finding ways of moving forward.
EDS uses an integrative form of counselling which means that all interventions are tailored to best suit your needs. We draw from a range of models in our work together to create a therapeutic experience that works for you and enables you to achieve secure and lasting recovery.
Counselling usually takes place at the same time, in the same place each week and lasts for one hour.
Counselling can be offered in person, via Skype, or telephone where appropriate.
Fees for one-to-one counselling are £50 per hour.
After experiencing difficulties in several parts of my life I decided to seek help. Kym was the first counsellor I've ever seen; I'm very lucky to have found a great counsellor straight away. I saw Kym, face to face, for several months and she is unquestionably easy to talk to. The great thing with Kym is that she is competent in lots of areas. She has given me a lot of positive/useful/truthful feedback as well as support on various subjects. She has helped where and when I most struggled in my life. Seeing Kym has changed my life because she re-focused me on who I want to be and how to achieve this. She has also taught me how to enjoy the present moment through mindfulness. I will most definitely see Kym again in the future and I would most definitely recommend her to others.
After struggling with disordered eating for over ten years Kym has helped me to change my perspective towards life, as well as issues surrounding food. She gave me the space, safety, knowledge and tools to start a journey of self-acceptance which allowed me to let go of the misconception that I would find happiness in thinness. The most important thing to me was that I felt understood, which is not something I have experienced with previous counsellors.
