Sharon Rother Counsellor , WD7

I was trained as a psycho-dynamic counsellor but would now describe myself as integrative, drawing on many elements including Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) and Person Centred theories. My training has also included short term focused work, couples therapy and bereavement counselling. In 2002 I completed an intense course in the varied aspects of eating disorders culminating in an MA. My final paper, which was published, reported on a research project with recovered anorexics and bulimics and the services which they would have liked to have been available when they were ill.

From 2002 until 2008 I worked as a lecturer and researcher at the University of Hertfordshire on all aspects of disordered eating. I have been quoted extensively in the media on these issues.

My publications include

(2008) with Julia Buckroyd, "Psychological Responses to Eating Disorders and Obesity". John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

(2007) with Julia Buckroyd, "Therapeutic Groups for Obese Women: A Group Leader's Handbook". John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

(2004) with Julia Buckroyd, "Experience of Service Provision for Adolescents with Eating Disorders". Primary Health Care: Research and Development. 5: 153-161.
