According to the National Eating Disorders Collaboration, approximately one in twenty Australians have an eating disorder. Anyone can develop one of these conditions at any time in their life and at any age. They are generally induced by stressful social and/or personal circumstances which can also have adverse effects on one’s body image. Sufferers may starve themselves of food, and/or purge immediately after meals for a variety of reasons. Common eating disorders include Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, and Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorders.
These conditions can be cured with the right treatment and support network in place. Our trained psychologists provide an understanding and professional space for sufferers and support people to work through the underlying issues, including the development of easy to follow treatment plans.
