Susan Bailey Counselling & Psychotherapy
As a therapist, I work with many different people on many different issues. One of the areas that I have particular interest in is eating disorders. Having experienced an eating disorder myself, I know first hand just how difficult the battle can be. I have an integrative approach to therapy, combining focusing upon the emotions of an individual with practical ideas for gently moving forward and working towards achievable goals.

Dr Femke Leathes, D.Clin.Psych., CPsychol – Eating Disorders Counsellor in Reading
Telephone: 0118 9680898
I am a clinical psychologist with specialist training and experience working with teenagers, women and men with eating disorders. I work part-time in an NHS eating disorders service, and offer a private practice locally in Caversham, North Reading. My clinical psychology background means I am trained to deliver more than one therapeutic approach. I formulate each client’s case with them individually, and use this understanding to develop a person-centred therapy that draws on different models. While I am skilled in and able to offer ‘pure’ treatments that are evidenced to help people overcome some eating difficulties, my experience means I know ‘off-the-shelf’ therapy programmes are rarely effective on their own. I am inspired by the clients I work with and their determination to recover, a term that I know means much more than changing their approach to food. I aim to offer a therapeutic scaffold to help my clients build the kind of future they want, not just one that rids them of an eating disorder diagnosis.
Carolyn Langlands – Eating Disorders Counsellor in Hampshire
I am a BACP accredited Integrative therapist based in Romsey, Hampshire, with extensive experience in working with young people in a school and college environment as well as with adults. I am currently working in private practice as a therapist and supervisor; my therapeutic work includes helping clients with eating disorders, including anorexia, bulimia and binge eating, as well as helping clients who present with depression, stress and anxiety, self esteem and confidence issues. As an integrative therapist, my aim is to adopt an approach that works for the clients’ individual needs so that the approach fits the client.
Orla Gardam MA MBACP (Accred) – Eating Disorders Counsellor in Wokingham.
Telephone: 07702 976610
I have 15years experience working in the field of counselling and psychotherapy. I use an eclectic approach in my practice, this means I can adapt my skills to the needs of individual clients rather than the client having to adapt and fit into my approach. I work with both brief solution focused therapeutic approaches and open ended long term basis. I have extensive experience working with addictions using the 12 step model alongside more traditional approaches to counselling. I also have experience working with eating disorders – binge eating, anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa.
In addition to this, I have experience of working with clients with a variety of issues including;
- relationship issues
- low self-esteem
- panic attacks
- self confidence
- work related issues
I believe that my clients have the answers to ease whatever anxiety or chaos they may be experiencing. Using the counselling time to explore issues in a non threatening ‘safe’ environment can give clients the opportunity to explore feelings and fears.
I hope to offer a supportive environment that empowers the client to look at ‘how’ they are living their life and reflect on whether this is what they want or, what they think they should be doing. They can then move towards leading a more fulfilling and contented life.
