How to recover from an Eating Disorder in Adelaide
Our Eating Disorder dietitian provides treatment services to our clients living with an eating disorder to correct disordered eating behaviours. We can assist clients who have been diagnosed as having (or suspect they have) Anorexia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, Bulimia Nervosa, EDNOS (Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified) or general disordered eating behaviours.
Bulimia Nervosa Treatment:
We assist clients to change any binge eating behaviours via the Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for eating disorders (CBT-e) model for treating Bulimia Nervosa. Together we can correct unnecessary restriction of whole foods and enforce regular eating patterns by acting as a supportive coach armed with CBT-e principles.
Anorexia Nervosa Treatment for Adolescents:
Our eating disorder dietitian will work with parents wanting to prepare adequate meals for their adolescent within the framework of the Family Based Therapy (FBT) model of treating Anorexia Nervosa. As the adolescent progresses in regaining nourishment, our eating disorder dietitian will introduce skills into the adolescent to become more independent in their eating, widen their food choices, address fear foods, break down food rules, eat normal, regular meals.
You can expect a high-level of ongoing support to change your eating behaviours and the way you think about food. You will gain skills that help you change your eating habits and move towards a way of life where food doesn't dominate your thoughts. Our sessions are personalised to provide dietary counselling that is aligned with current best-practice standards in the treatment of Eating Disorders. We work collaboratively with psychiatrists and psychologists across Adelaide that all share a special interest in eating disorder treatment. Together we strive to achieve recovery and remission from the eating disorder in each and every client we treat.
