At Mindworx Psychology we use range of therapies to manage and treat eating disorders.
We often work with dietitians, GPs and psychiatrists, but we sometimes work privately just with our client. Often we work with our clients family too.
Because all our clients are unique, there is no prescribed approach. We are excited that from 1st November 2019, reforms to the MBS allow our clients who meet the specified criteria to access uo to 40 rebated sessions of Psychological Therapy – along with 20 dietetic sessions. Our Psychologists who work with eating disorders all meet the NEDC competency framework specified by Medicare, and have comprehensive training, as well as extensive experience in working in inpatient, outpatient and private practice modalities.
Our approach is collaborative and holistic. We put a a lot of emphasis on understanding thoughts, emotions, behaviours, patterns of thinking, motivations and relationships. We want to understand your problem – why it started, why it continues. Why it helps you, and how it gets in your way.
We use evidence based therapies that are tailored to eating disorders. Cognitive therapies, family based treatments, behavioural therapies, dialectical therapy, mindfulness, narrative and a whole eclectic range of evidence based approaches to create and find what is the best fit for you.
Therapy isn’t something we do to you – it’s something we do together to help you reach your goals.
