We recognise that caring for someone who is experiencing an eating disorder can be extremely distressing and stressful. Our friendly team of specialist therapists can offer a range of different talking therapies to support you during this difficult time.
I qualified as an Occupational Therapist 10 years ago, however I have worked in the field of eating disorders for 15 years now, previously working for Syeda as a volunteer, so extremely passionate about the work SYEDA do in offering support to those affected by difficulties with food.
I have worked in the field of eating disorders for over 10 years and am passionate about people getting the help they want when they need it in a way which suits them.
As Clinical Manager my role at Syeda, along with Michelle, is to oversee the clinical support services we provide both in Sheffield and across wider South Yorkshire.
Here at SYEDA, I assess people who self-refer via our website, have a caseload of clients that I see for therapy, supervise other clinicians, manage the waiting list, mentor students on placement and generally work towards promoting the organisation and all that it can offer to the people of South Yorkshire.
I am SYEDA’s Occupational Therapist and have been with the organisation since January 2014. My approach always focuses on the needs and goals of the individual and has so far ranged from managing anxiety in a supermarket to practising circus skills in a park.
My role at SYEDA is young person’s counsellor. I have worked therapeutically with young people for around 7 years.
To access talking therapies you will need to make an appointment. You will be asked for a bit of information about how you are at the moment. Once this is submitted someone will contact you to arrange for you to come in and talk through what the different options are and what sort of support would be most effective for you. We offer talking therapies in Sheffield, Rotherham and Barnsley.
Our team currently offer the following types of talking therapies which are all available to family and friends, as well as individuals who are experiencing an eating disorder;
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (C.B.T.)
- Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (D.B.T.)
- Psychoanalytically Informed Psychotherapy
- Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy
