Alternative Treatment Options

If you have an eating disorder such as anorexia or bulimia, or have addictive behaviours relating to food, or are in the midst of a major life crisis, or just have a specific issue relating to your eating, then some of my other services such as psychotherapy, NLP, hypnotherapy or coaching will be more appropriate and beneficial. These are highly individualised to your exact issues.
