Professor Julia Buckroyd

Julia Buckroyd is Emeritus Professor of Counselling at the University of Hertfordshire and a therapist in private practice, specialising in working with people with all sorts of problems with food, weight, shape and size.

She is particularly interested in the meaning and function of the manipulation of food and looks for triggers to episodes of food misuse. She believes that clients are unlikely to abandon their eating habits unless they learn alternative means of life management and so focuses on helping clients develop better means of emotional regulation.

Julia has spent many years involved in a range of research on disordered eating and has written widely on the subject. This includes a number of books for the general public, such as Understanding Your Eating: How To Eat And Not Worry About It (2011), as well as books for practitioners such as Psychological Responses to Eating Disorders and Obesity (2008), co-edited with Sharon Rother.

Testimonials for Julia Buckroyd’s training

Extremely informative and delivered in an engaging and manageable way. One of the best trainers I’ve had, so passionate, approachable and ‘human’.

Brilliant day, thank you. Informative, well balanced style of delivery with easy and relaxed manner. Julia has a wonderfully easy and relaxed style of delivery that is easy to connect with.

I felt ‘well fed’ with information, learning, personal reflection and food!

I have found the experience of being taught by Julia exhilarating and I’m left yearning for more.

Julia offered a fantastic mix of learning. I loved the ideas of connecting more to feelings and body in positive ways.

Julia has a very open and amusing approach which invites you to enthuse.
