Mental Health Bites

Training & CPD

Nelson Mandela once said that “education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”.

Well, I’m not exactly aiming to change the world, but I do believe that education is a vital component in improving the support and care offered to those with Eating Disorders or any other mental health concerns. I offer workshops on the topic of Eating Disorders, as well as my new venture which is counselling skills for manual therapists.

I was doing a lot of the "Don’ts" with my patients – just desperately wanting them to eat and not become physically unwell.    I am going to approach my next consultation quite differently.

This workshop should be available for all MH nursing students as it is extremely beneficial

Eating Disorder Workshops / CPD

We are told Eating Disorders are ‘complex’ and ‘difficult to treat’ and this means stigma, avoidance and a lack of awareness. I therefore have worked really hard to condense much of what I have learnt in the last 10+ years of volunteering and working in this field into the following workshops:





Counselling Skills for Manual Therapists

CPD for Osteopaths and other physical health therapists. I have spent the last 3 years based within an Osteopathic clinic, and quickly became aware of how much emotional and mental health work can become part of your experience with patients. If this sounds familiar then this is the workshop for you!


My workshops have become well-respected and highly rated
