Hello
does anyone have any recommendations for an ED psychotherapist in Yorkshire? 
It’s a bit of a mine field. We live Wakefield area. We have ditched CAMHS and want private CBT sessions. 

many thanks in anticipation xx

What about call Dr. Sonia Bues and ask her if she can recommend a collegue there? Or ask Eva Musby?

Hi teecee,

You could try emailing Batty Matty - I think she will still be on ATDT even though she doesn't post much now.  She is in Yorkshire and may know some good people.  In terms of therapies - psychotherapy really involves looking at issues in the past which may impact on current behaviours.  It might be worth finding a clinical psychologist if you are looking for CBT for your d.  I see there are private clinical psychologists in West Yorkshire, having had a quick look online.  There appears to be a private psychiatry practice and psychology practices too.
Believe you can and you're halfway there.

Whatever you do please avoid someone called Allie Outram - she has had an ED herself and, based on my sister's (negative) experience, it seems like she very much still does.

It might be worth contacting Ursula Philpot who is a dietitian who specialises in EDs and seeing if she can recommend anyone - she's based in Leeds so may know of people who could help

Hi teecee, I hope you are on the way to finding a good therapist. You might have worked this out already but please be aware that Harrogate Eating Disorder Service Limited is not the same as the NHS's West Yorkshire and Harrogate Eating Disorder Services. If you go with the former (private one), I advise that you take care to find out what form the therapy will take and what the attitude to carers is.

Thank you all for your responses. I’ve had a couple of professionals get back to me. One especially in Huddersfield is hopefully going to get back to me xmas time if not before when a slot becomes available. 

I will email Batty Matty to see if they have any personal experience....I am desperately trying to avoid anyone who could be harmful to her recovery as she’s been doing so well. The Dr I spoke with was really positive and open to different therapies...and happy to discuss them openly. She is private but I think their practice is used by the local CAMHS also as an overspill ....

I can’t find her email....if it’s not on her profile does that mean I can’t email her???

There is no email link on her profile, that means she does not want email contact directly. I would ask one of the mods if they can get you in contact.

If an email is not visible on the profile it does mean someone has chosen not to receive emails. They may have elected to receive @mentions so that can be tried. BattyMatty  is also sometimes on the ATDT Facebook page.
