Counselling and Treatment

At BodyMatters we are committed to the highest level of evidence-based care to our clients.

Making the decision to recover may be one of the hardest things that you’ll ever do.

Eating and dieting disorders often take a significant toll on a person’s relationships, education, school or work. This can often contribute to their desire to get better. However, they may have tried treatment approaches that just haven’t worked, or perhaps there’s still a little part of them that doesn’t feel completely ready to recover.

These feelings are normal at the start of a person’s journey towards recovery.

Whatever your situation our BodyMatters team is here to help. We provide initial consultations to fully understand each client’s unique situation, and on that basis develop a customised treatment plan matched to their specific needs. We balance evidence-based treatment approaches with genuine care and compassion for all of our clients.

Problems we typically see at our treatment clinic include:

- 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

We also provide highly specialised Maudsley Family Therapy.

Please note: we are now able to provide low-cost treatment for those who otherwise cannot access treatment. This would be provided by our individual therapist, Kassie Bottalico. We also offer specialised treatment services for people in regional and remote services via skype.

Please contact us now to make a booking.

Please also note that 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.  Treatment outcomes are typically enhanced by early intervention.
