I help frustrated people to escape binge eating, emotional eating, and overwhelming thoughts about food, by combining the insight and emotional depth of therapy with proactive solution-focused coaching.
Binge Eating Therapy
  • It is exhausting constantly thinking about eating and feeling that you don’t have control over food.
  • It is frustrating knowing what you should do, but not being able to do it.
  • It is isolating feeling alone and judged, and just wanting to feel ‘normal’.
I help people who want to:
  • Stop binge eating for good
  • Get freedom from constant thoughts about food and your weight
  • Escape the cycle of yo-yo dieting and weight gain
I combine counselling, to understand and overcome emotional barriers, with the strategies and energy of coaching, to help you make lasting change.

Find out how you can escape binge eating with 1:1 binge eating therapy.

As an overweight child and someone who emotionally ate and yo-yo dieted through my teens and twenties, I know that eating issues are complicated and can't be fixed with normal diets.

How to Stop Binge Eating
The mind is powerful and although our mind controls us, we can also control our mind. If you keep telling yourself you can't stop bingeing, then that is what your mind thinks, it can be a self-fulfilling prophecy. To stop bingeing, you need to realise that you can do it. It sounds simple but often it is not.

Find out how to stop binge and emotional eating.

Hear from people who have worked with me...

"Kirsten supported me through a really difficult time when I was using binge-eating to avoid feelings around a relatively new diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. My binge-eating had a seriously negative impact on my mental health, self-esteem and relationships. With Kirsten’s help and expertise, I finally have my life back and it changed my life. I cannot thank her enough and fully recommend her services. Thank you Kirsten."
