My Philosophy of Care

I use an integrated model of counselling, and place a strong emphasis on the client-counsellor connection. Part of my focus involves supporting you to better understand society’s structures and how they impact your body story - after all, power and profit thrive when you feel bad about your body. At Held Counselling we are all about holding space for you – we will never tell you what to do. Instead, we will listen, validate and support you to work through whatever is going on. Together we can explore your thoughts and feelings, identify patterns and core beliefs, recognise strengths, learn new techniques, and overcome challenges – helping you live a life in pursuit of what matters to you. My style of counselling is kind, curious and authentic. I will be your cheerleader, your confidant and will gently challenge you. Working with you is a true privilege.

About Me & My Practice

I am a registered, masters qualified, counsellor who specialises in body image counselling, and holding a space for EVERYbody. I support people to make peace with their body, eat intuitively, find joy in movement, and become self-compassionate. With lived experience of navigating the world in a bigger body, I understand firsthand what it's like to face constant criticism, not feel good enough and to have a body that the world says does not belong. I first discovered the Health at Every Size (HAES) paradigm in 2013, it changed my life. Using a HAES framework, I support you to shift the focus off weight and onto your version of health.
