                 Eating Disorder Therapy in Devon


After extensive training and counselling experience working in many different settings Gillian realised there was an alarming increase in disordered eating clients and a need for specialist eating disorder therapy. In particular her work within the school setting highlighted how vulnerable young people are to the pressures and demands of social media and the impact this is having on their mental Health, body image and ideals. Gillian's own personal experience of an eating disorder during difficult teenage years also gave her much insight into this very complex mental health issue.


Gillian is now supporting many clients of all ages on their road through recovery and can offer a programme that supports the ED client and parents and carers too. Working with parents is a particularly important aspect of recovery as caring for a loved one with an ED can be a minefield. Gillian teaches parents/carers how to approach difficult conversations, resistance to change and motivational language.

Gillian offers a recovery package that includes, assessment, parent/carer sessions, weekly therapy sessions and a referral for nutritional intervention. Gillian is clear on how working collaboratively with other professionals and carers is an essential part of a successful eating disorder recovery journey. Please enquire about the recovery package.

Gillian has specialist training and holds a Master Practitioner Diploma in Eating Disorders- Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating and Obesity. She uses the unique model and way of working developed by the National Centre for Eating Disorders, the New Maudsley Motivational Interviewing (MI), Positive Psychology and other recovery enhancing approaches to help bring about change in your relationship with food, and a healthier happier lifestyle. Gillian also has experience and training in approaching recovery for those who are neurodiverse. Eating disorders are exactly what they say- disordered eating. They are emotional and psychological issues and usually a way of controlling uncomfortable and difficult feelings. The health risks are high but full recovery and healing is possible if there is early intervention from a well trained practitioner.
