With a background in dance, the relationship between body and mind has always been of particular interest to Sonja. This has led her to undertake specialised training in eating disorder and nutrition, following my initial qualification in integrated psychotherapy. Over the last eight years Sonja has gained practical experience in both in and out-patient services. Sonja's clinical work at Brighton and Hove with out-patients has influenced her decision to undertake a professional doctorate with the Metanoia Institute, researching how therapists are prepared, trained and supported in their work with eating disorder out-patients. My aim is to improve treatment outcomes, so in-patient treatment and long term consequences of the illness can be minimised.
