What to expect when you see a Clinical Psychologist:
Why might I see a Clinical Psychologist?
Clinical Psychologists can help support you with complex problems you may be experiencing with your relationship with food, body image and eating.
How can our Clinical Psychologist help you?
- Our clinical psychologists will help you understand your experiences by providing an open and non-judgmental space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and physiological symptoms
- Together you will explore how different factors may trigger and maintain your experiences. They will also examine factors that exacerbate or alleviate your symptoms
- You will learn how these factors interact to perpetuate your negative thinking patterns and, together, you will work through these experiences using evidence-based treatment approaches to help you improve your relationship with food, eating and body image
- Clinical Psychologists can support you with your eating presentation as well as other psychological issues
