Professor Julia Buckroyd
SPECIALTY Eating Disorders + Obesity
SUB-SPECIALTY + SPECIAL INTEREST Emotional welfare of professional dancers and dance traineesPROFILE
Julia Buckroyd is Emeritus Professor of Counselling at the University of Hertfordshire and has been working in the field of eating disorders since 1984. Her original training was as an academic historian but she retrained first as a counsellor at Birkbeck College University of London and then as a Psychotherapist with the Guild of Psychotherapists. Her first post as a student counsellor was at London Contemporary Dance School in 1984 where she became interested in eating disorders. Her first book on the subject, Eating Your Heart Out (2nd edition, Vega 1996) derives from this experience.
From 1994-2008 she worked at the University of Hertfordshire while continuing her clinical work as a therapist. Her work with dancers, including work relating to eating disorders, was published in The Student Dancer (Dance Books 2000).
In the past ten years she has applied the insights of therapeutic work with eating disorders to obesity and has been researching whether psychotherapeutic groups of obese women are effective in creating sustained weight loss. This work is ongoing. Her account of this research and the group programme she developed was published in 2007 (Julia Buckroyd and Sharon Rother, Therapeutic Groups for Obese Women; a group leader's handbook, Wiley). Professor Buckroyd has also sought to support work on psychological aspects of all forms of disordered eating via conferences and publications. From January 2004 to December 2007, she was editor of Counselling and Psychotherapy Research, the research journal of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Professor Buckroyd has also developed a commercial programme for emotional eaters now available to the general public.
