Counselling and Treatment

At BodyMatters we are committed to the highest level care for our clients. We use treatment approaches that are proven to be effective.

 

Its important to remember that, regardless of your experiences to date, recovery is possible. Effective treatment is a combination of the right treatment approach, the right therapist for you and the right timing.

Our therapists are experienced in treating all kinds of eating, dieting and body image issues, including:

- anorexia
- bulimia
- binge eating disorder
- dieting disorders
- trauma-related difficulties
- comfort/emotional eating
- compulsive exercise
- weight management
- lap band and other pre/post op weight-surgery complications
- body dysmorphia

Our therapists offer expertise within this expertise. For example, we provide highly specialised Maudsley Family Therapy for people experiencing restrictive eating aged 17 and under. In Maudsley Family Therapy the whole family is involved as a resource to treat the eating disorder. We offer discrete, skills based treatment modules to help you build specific skills for issues that you are struggling with, such as obsessive excercise and assertiveness. Rebecca Guzelian, our Intern Psychologist, offers low-cost treatment for those who otherwise cannot access treatment. We also offer specialised treatment services for people in regional and remote areas via skype. Finally, BodyMatters offers support groups to complement treatment.

Whatever your situation, our BodyMatters team is here to help. We provide comprehensive initial consultations to fully understand your unique situation. From there we develop a customised treatment plan matched to your specific needs. We balance research-based treatment approaches that are proven to work with genuine care and compassion for all of our clients.

Making the decision to recover may be one of the hardest things that you’ll ever do. You may be reading this website feeling completely  motivated to recover and make changes. However you may also have some feelings of ambivalence about embarking on the recovery process. This is very normal. Be assured that our experienced therapists will be working with you at your pace, understanding your motivation & ambivalence and giving you the skills to make change when you are ready. 

It is common for people with eating disorders to fear that they are not sick enough to be taken seriously when considering treatment. Eating and dieting disorders of any size are serious. At BodyMatters we take a non-judgemental approach and treat all cases as genuine. Research  shows that the earlier you seek treatment the more likely you are to recover: treatment outcomes are typically enhanced by early intervention.
