Elaine Henderson MBACP (Accred), BSc (Hons)
Adult & Adolescent Counsellor/Psychotherapist, Master Practitioner in Eating Disorders & Obesity
My name is Elaine and I am a BACP (Accred) Counsellor and Eating Disorder & Obesity specialist with over 15 years of experience working with adults and adolescents. I help people to change their relationship with food by addressing the factors keeping them stuck. I also support people to improve their quality of life by exploring psychological issues holding them back.
I work in a relational and integrative way which means that I may draw upon several different approaches according to individual need, circumstances and life experiences.
By bringing together my professional knowledge, skills and experience alongside my warmth and enthusiastic personality I am able to support you to regain life balance, achieve positive change, develop a normal relationship with food and build resilience for the future.
My aim is to provide a safe space to explore… where therapy can be experienced as a place of healing and growth.
