Finding Body Peace and Eating Disorder Recovery
I have more than 15 years counselling experience with people with all kinds of eating and body image issues. I am considered a leading health professionals in this area and am often in the media as part of my advocacy work. During this time I have provided individual therapy to a wide variety of people.
I have worked in the public and private sectors and also lecture at universities in these subjects. I have also worked at The Center of Excellence in Eating Disorders (CEED) educating and training health professionals on how to treat eating disorders and co-wrote a manual for health professionals. I have been on the board of Eating Disorders Victoria and has a special interest in Binge Eating, Bulimia and Body Image.
What kind of therapy? My first priority is making you feel at ease and comfortable. My rooms are beautiful and calm and everything is completely confidential. I am an active therapist so I do ask questions, work with you on setting and achieving therapeutic goals and give you ideas of strategies and resources to aid your recovery.
Using a ‘tool kit’ of a number of therapies and drawing from the Eastern Wisdom Traditions (like Buddhism) (like Radical Self Compassion, ACT, Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, Feminist Theories and CBT) I will first assess you and then work together with you to set some goals for treatment.
What to expect: If you have never been to counselling it might seem a bit daunting. I am happy to answer any questions you have about my experience or approach and take time to help you feel comfortable about coming to see me (most people find me very warm and smiley!).
Fees: $120 – 140 (please inquire)
