About Mary Wood
“Food is much more than just a matter of fuel – it marks us as human, situates us in time and place and shapes our relation to each other and the rest of the world” (Polly Russell) Mary Wood has over 15 years of experience working with individuals and families to treat the full spectrum of eating disorders, weight management and body image. Mary helps clients move beyond the established diet myths and beliefs, to a new and mindful relationship with food and eating. Mary helps clients understand and address root causes, which may include trauma, stress and low self-esteem and she understands how disordered eating can blight happiness, relationships and self–belief. Mary empowers her clients to achieve greater vitality and resilience by challenging destructive patterns and establishing new routines and relationships, and teaching new skills to cope with everyday situations. Mary uses an integrative and multi-disciplinary based approach to focus on the unique journey of each patient. When appropriate Mary works with clinical practitioners, dieticians and nutritionists. Mary sees clients in West London and online. She also runs online group programmes for weight management.
