Hello and Welcome
Bespoke Counselling and Tele-Therapy
Mental Health, Stress, Eating Disorders & Weight Management
Counselling Remotely, Stamford, London
Often people come to me knowing that they need help as 'things don't quite feel right' but are unable to pinpoint the problem. In my experience issues do not get better or disappear without help, you are in control of choosing to see me, (together we can look at what changes you’d like to make and start implementing them), choosing to see someone else or doing nothing. Whatever you choose, I hope that you find the help that you need.
After a commitment to 10 sessions with Edwina I was able to dig deep and ascertain the reasons (due to a combination of childhood experiences and general over analysis) behind my behaviour and thinking.
I felt at ease and well understood by Edwina from day one. The counselling has helped me improve my relationship with loved ones - my communication skills and means of self-expression - come rain or shine. It has also allowed me to create boundaries and express myself in a more honest / constructive manner in all relationships.
After implementing changes to my mental models as advised by Edwina - I am now a lot more confident and self assured / realistic when it comes to my demands and expectations from others and self. The whole experience has been an eye opener, giving a whole new level of clarity of mind and more positive sense of purpose and better interpersonal skills at work and at home.
Thank you Edwina."
Cassie the Binge Eater
After coming for one to one counselling-coaching Cassie thrived. She found new ways to think and feel about her body, she lost weight, she threw away her diet books, stopped calorie counting, found the joy in food again and most importantly stopped binge eating. Cassie has found a new happiness and acceptance in her changed habits and behaviours which work together to help her lose and maintain a healthy weight.
“I didn’t think I would find something that works for me, I am so glad I found Edwina who has helped me so much” - C.H
Michelle – Anxiety and Depression
When Michelle and I started working together in late 2018 she was in a very unhappy place in her life. She was unhappy in her job, and her marriage was not as fulfilling as she hoped it would be. She had been struggling with anxiety and depression for a while but was still functioning therefore her friends and family remained unaware.
Through exploration it transpired that Michelle was a people pleaser. She would put everyone else’s needs and feelings before her own. This left her feeling exhausted and unsupported. We started working on Michelle’s self esteem, once she was able to identify what she wanted and boundaries to help manage other people she became a lot happier. She still helps other people but without neglecting her own wants and needs.
“I didn’t really understand how just talking would help me and decided to go to therapy as a last resort, it is so much more than just talking and Edwina helped me to see that I had gotten lost and gave me the confidence to make positive changes in my life” M.M
I recognise that finding a specialist counsellor in weight management and all things food, weight and shape can be difficult, I appreciate that not everyone who needs my services can access support from Stamford, or London. This is why I also work remotely via video call so that I can help and support you wherever you are in the country.
Counselling Young People
I currently work for several charities; CASY, YMCA, CCC and CRUSE who provide low cost counselling to the community, which is a cause I believe in.
Specialism - Eating Disorders
3 Hour Breakthrough Sessions
I am passionate about my work; my approach is holistic which means I use psychological and nutritional interventions to help you rebuild the person lost to the eating disorder. Part of working holistically calls for dealing with any issues with happiness, anxiety, depression, assertiveness, self-confidence and body image in addition to your eating disorder.
A one-off breakthrough session is a collaborative exploration, that gets to the heart of the problem and what’s keeping you stuck. In a 3-hour breakthrough session we will look at your relationship with food, how it impacts on your life, barriers to change, and help you discover what you need to do to do to move forward.
I work with Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder and Other Eating Disorders. Each eating disorder requires unique ways of working to help put you back in control and move forward with your life.

Over the years I have received frequent request from people who need my services but cannot access Stamford or London. In order to reach as many people who need my help as possible, I also work remotely via video call.
Due to the current guidelines around Corona virus, some people are opting for remote counselling sessions which is a service I provide. I use software called Whereby, and I send you a link which allows you access to a private room. It doesn't require you to download any software or be a tech genius to operate it!
Video call session price £70

If you are suffering from Binge Eating Disorder there is every possibility that your weight has increased over the duration of the binge eating. If weight loss and bringing your eating disorder under control is something you desire, contact me. Binge Eating Disorder is less publicised than Anorexia and Bulimia but makes up a large proportion of the other eating disorders out there. You are not alone in having it but you don't have to tackle it alone.

In the meantime take care.
