Eating Disorder Counselling

Life Resolutions can help clients overcome eating disorders. Our qualified psychologists offer specialised eating disorder treatments to children, adults, men and women.

Two of the most well-known eating disorders are anorexia nervosa, characterised by a dramatically low calorie intake, and bulimia nervosa, which involves cycles of binge eating and purging. Left untreated eating disorders can become life threatening. Professional counselling can treat these conditions and help people overcome issues with their weight, body image or food intake.

Some symptoms of eating disorders

  • Restrictive food intake or binge eating
  • Obsessing about food, weight or body shape
  • Excessive exercise
  • Abusing laxatives or diet pills
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • A rapid oscillation in body weight
  • Self-induced vomiting after meals

A professional psychologist can help you overcome this disorder through counselling. During these sessions, clients are taught how to overcome their fear of gaining weight and how to respect themselves again, so they can enjoy a healthy life.

Medicare rebates

The Australian Government offers Medicare rebates for treatments by registered psychologists as part of the ‘Better Access to Mental Health Care’ scheme. To access the Medicare Rebate, you need your GP, psychiatrist or paediatrician to complete a detailed mental health assessment and prepare a Mental Health Treatment Plan before referring you to a psychologist.

You may be eligible to receive Medicare rebates immediately into your bank account when paying for your session by cash, credit card, EFTPOS or cheque at all Life Resolutions® locations.
