Amy works with each person to develop an individualised personal map. This involves developing a shared understanding of strengths and resources, ideas about how difficulties have developed across the lifespan, and the thoughts and behaviours that might be keeping you stuck. Offering a genuine, open and trusting space, Amy aims to support you to make lasting changes to your thinking and behaviour, establish new habits and ways of understanding and relating to yourself, others and the world.

Amy’s career has focused on working with children, adolescents and adults with eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and difficulties with body image and exercise, in inpatient, daycare and outpatient settings. Each person with an eating disorder brings their own individual, rich experiences and their own reasons and motivations for change and it is important to explore these throughout therapy. Amy uses evidence-based treatments like CBT and MANTRA and family-based approaches in her work and strongly believes the key to being able to use these treatment tools effectively is the development of a warm, open and collaborative relationship with the people she supports. It takes a huge amount of courage and perseverance to overcome an eating disorder and recovery is always possible.
