Credentialled Eating Disorder Clinician
Problems I can help you with
Eating Disorders and related issues, including body image problems, difficulties with anxiety/guilt/shame around eating, binge eating, weight/shape concerns
Difficulty regulating emotions, behaviours and relationships
Reactions and responses, emotions and beliefs related to traumatic events
Difficulties with obsessional thoughts and compulsive behaviours
How deep my understanding of these issues is
I'm a clinical psychologist, and have been extensively trained and supervised in assessing and treating clinical problems.
I'm a Credentialed Eating Disorder Clinician and I have a PhD which focused on understanding the relationship between personality, emotions and Eating Disorders.
I am a research fellow at the University of Queensland, where my research focuses on how the co-occurrence of other mental health problems (trauma, OCD, interpersonal difficulties) impact on the treatment of Eating Disorders, and how to best optimise the treatment for each individual.
I supervise other psychologists in working with people with these difficulties.
How I can help you
My primary orientation for Eating Disorders is CBT-e. CBT-e helps people to understand their Eating Disorder and what maintains it.
I will work collaboratively with you to make the decision about what elements of your eating problems are important to address and how, with the end goal of being in control of your eating, weight and shape (rather than being controlled by them).
I will possibly be your individual therapist if you are part of our comprehensive DBT program.
For other problems, I will use evidence-based cognitive and behavioural treatments.
What does your involvement look like?
Willingness to share information about current problems and collaborate on how to address them
Willingness to take an active role in treatment
About me as a person
I am warm, empathic, committed and collaborative
I enjoy having a laugh
I have an extensive sock collection
I am a big fan of greyhounds (as pets!)
