Bachelor of Psychology
Masters of Counselling and Psychotherapy
Specialist training in CBT-e for Eating Disorders and the Health at Every Size approach (HAES)
Emma's passion lies in helping women to break free from disordered patterns of over-eating, and those caught in the cycle of dieting and bingeing, which leads to feelings of failure and guilt.
She helps women to: identify and overcome triggers to bingeing and dieting; decrease obsessive thoughts about food and weight; improve self esteem, self compassion and body image; decrease shame and anxiety; learn to manage difficult feelings without using food; and to tune into one's hunger and satiety signals to allow a more peaceful, mindful relationship with food.
She also works with women with binge-eating disorder using the CBT-e model (the model with the best evidence for treating this disorder).
After many years in the corporate world of marketing, Emma retrained in counselling and psychotherapy and has always had an interest in the psychology behind disordered eating and weight cycling.
Emma has a bachelor of psychology, a master of counselling and psychotherapy, specialist training in CBT-e for eating disorders and the Health at Every Size approach (HAES), and is currently training in Family Based Therapy for adolescents with Anorexia Nervosa.
She works in an empathic, non-judgmental way, drawing from a mix of Cognitive Behavioural (CBT), Narrative, Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) and Solution-Focused Therapies (SFT), and is also trained in mindfulness techniques.
