Eating Disorder Recovery

 

 

 

OVERCOMING AN EATING DISORDER WILL BE ONE OF

THE HARDEST thiNGS YOU'LL EVER DO 

 

Sadly, we often feel that we have to do it on our own, and yet, we would never expect a cancer patient to fight cancer on their own. 

There comes a time in the recovery process when we start to understand that having a support network is vital to maintaining recovery. 

Unlike traditional forms of psychotherapy, my approach is focused on giving you the tools and strategies that you need to become autonomous in maintaining your own recovery. While my coaching is focused on the practical, my approach is deeply compassionate, understanding and genuine. 

 

EXPERIENCE

After completing my doctorate thesis in the field of eating disorders and publishing numerous journal articles on prevention and treatment, I spent the majority of my time working in private practice in Australia with individuals experiencing eating disorders.

During this time, I worked with individuals who were experiencing Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder and variations of eating disorders that don't neatly fit into the diagnostic criteria. 

I have worked both with adults, as well as adolescents and their families, to reach recovery and strongly believe that recovery is possible.
