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.

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 🙂

** PLEASE NOTE **

* In October 2019 we welcomed new associate dietitian, Hayley Liew to the clinic! Book in with Hayley online here

** Emma has been on maternity leave and is making her way back slowly, but currently quite full! Please feel free to email or phone, however I apologise in advance if I take a few days to respond while at home with baby #2!

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.

Binge & Emotional Eating Program

In Clinic + ONLINE

What Health Issues Can We Help With?

We're a specialist eating disorder treatment practice, offering 'non-diet' (i.e. not weight focused) nutrition and body image counselling, and related group programs. We can help with all main ED diagnoses in all age groups, including Anorexia Nervosa, Atypical AN, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, ARFID, and OSFED. If unsure whether we can help you, feel free to phone and ask.
Anorexia and Bulimia Nervosa

Medically stable adults and adolescents seen. Maudsley Family based Treatment offered.

Maybe you're not sure whether you actually have an eating disorder, or whether you're ready to get treatment? We can help you work towards readiness, and build motivation. We can also advise what outpatient treatment options could suit you (check out our support group here), and put you in the drivers' seat. Learn why you need a specialist eating disorder dietitian here.

It's never too early or late to get help!

Parents are welcome to phone or enquire online about options for your child/ young adult.

Emotional & Binge Eating

Are there foods that you just can't keep in the house? Do you eat in secret, or feel ashamed about how much you eat?

It's not your fault! We'll show you how so many people get stuck in this cycle, and teach you how to take back the control that food has over you.

Get individual nutrition counselling, or you might want to join our Overcoming Binge & Emotional Eating group program.

Weight Concern & Body Image

FACT: Most people seeing a dietitian want to lose weight. BUT: dieting increases risk of chronic disease and makes most people heavier over time. There IS an alternative to yo-yo dieting misery!

We do NOT offer a weight control service; what we do offer is the Non-Diet approach, which is better supported by research for achieving long-term health improvement. This takes the focus off weight (which is mostly out of our control) and puts it on eating behaviours (eg intuitive eating, or mindful eating) & body image- which we CAN control and improve.

You deserve a life of enjoying food and feeling comfortable in your skin!
