Helping you find calm with food
Welcome! We're so glad you've found us.
We're a specialist eating disorder practice in Sutherland Shire, Sydney, offering compassionate and collaborative treatment for individuals and families, plus treatment for other eating behaviour concerns (like binge or emotional eating) using a non-diet approach.
We offer individual treatment with experienced dietitians (we're looking for a psychologist!), a variety of online and in-person group programs, plus extras to support your recovery like meal support (clinic or Skype), and check-ins with your clinician via the Recovery Record app.
We appreciate the lack of specialist eating disorder services, and are happy to offer our services via Skype/ telehealth/ phone Australia wide.
Hopefully, this is the start of your journey toward finally breaking free from the power that food has over you. If you aspire to a life of just eating 'normally' again, you're in the right place. Read on 🙂

Individual Dietitian Consults
In Clinic + Skype
The number 1 reason people tell me that they held off on seeing a dietitian for their eating concerns is the feeling that ‘I already know what I should be eating’. And you know, I bet you’re right! I’ve never met someone with an eating disorder or other food & body concerns who didn’t have excellent nutrition knowledge. But because ‘nutrition is a science, and eating is a behaviour’ (actually a really complex set of many intertwined behaviours!) I focus on the ‘why’ & ‘how’ of eating.
We’ll work on improving your relationship with food: breaking down unhelpful food rules; building your confidence in making your own food decisions; and taking the guilt out of nourishing your body.
