Eating Disorder Recovery

 

ABOUT

I’m Dr Jenny Davis, I am an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist based in Berkhamsted. I have worked in mental health services for over 10 years and have a doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of East London. I firmly believe that you can recover from an eating disorder and have worked in specialist eating disorder teams for 6 years. I have also worked in a wide variety of other mental health settings including adult mental health, anxiety and health psychology services. I am passionate about supporting people with eating disorders and have now chosen to specialise in helping adults recover and repair their relationship with food. 

Clinical Psychologists train in a variety of models including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, systemic therapy and trauma-informed approaches. This enables me to work in a highly personalised way, drawing on the models that are going to be most appropriate for your needs.

I tend to work in a more structured way, providing both a listening ear and a focus on the steps needed to make you feel better for good.  I also believe that all therapists should work using a trauma-informed approach and I draw on this for all clients where it may be relevant.
