Finding Balance Psychology!

Helping young people and adults with eating and body image concerns

Based in Perth, we are Credentialed Eating Disorder Clinicians (CEDC). Our passion is to help people develop a positive relationship with eating and their body. We help young people and adults with restrictive eating / dieting, comfort eating, binge eating, weight or body image concerns, and eating disorders. We also provide therapy and support to families and carers, supervision to other mental health professionals, and support and education to GPs and other referrers. 

We take a non-diet, Health At Every Size (HAES), body positive stance with all clients. 

For those with clinical eating disorders, we incorporate this philosophy into the evidence based models we use: Enhanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT-E) for eating disorders, Specialist Supportive Clinical Management (SSCM), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Family Based Treatment (FBT). 

Dietician support and restorative yoga

We share our office space with an eating disorder dietician, Dr Tasmiah Masih, and encourage all clients with eating disorders to have dietetic support.

People with eating disorders recover more quickly when they receive both psychological and dietetic support, and Tas works from a non-diet, Health At Every Size framework. 

Tas is also a highly experienced yoga teacher – how lucky are we – and offers restorative yoga classes on Thursday evenings.

Please contact her directly on 0421 130 222 or mindfuledible@gmail.com for both dietetic and yoga bookings and information.

Hollie is pregnant and finishing in May, so I'm looking for a new receptionist.  Please feel free to share to your networks to help me find someone great.  Unfortunately, I can't employ current or previous clients for ethical reasons. 

All the information you need is on the website, so no DMs please.
Hollie is pregnant and will be leaving us in May, so we're on the hunt for a new receptionist to take her place, starting with a two-week handover in April.

We can't employ a current or former client, but do you know someone in your network who might be a good fit for me?  If you do, please share this ad with them.

Wishing you all a safe and restorative Christmas, and a wonderful year ahead.  See you from 4th Jan.
Hollie and I really enjoyed our staff (of 2) Christmas lunch on Friday at @ourtable_cafe. 

 It's been a big year for both of us in different ways, and it was lovely to spend a few hours together away from work. 

I can't believe Hollie only joined the team at the beginning of the year. She has made a really positive difference to me, and to the practice overall.  Just today she told me about a new system she has set up for contacting GPs, which is a great idea that made so much sense. 

And for those of you who remember Tarika, she did very well this year in her Masters of Professional Psychology training and has now been accepted in the Masters of Clinical Psychology programme for 2024, which is a fantastic achievement.
Christmas can be a difficult time for anyone, but it has particular challenges if you are recovering from an eating disorder or body image distress. 

Take some time to think about what your specific challenges or concerns are, and how you might be able to address these.  You might not be able to remove every challenge, but having a plan can help you stay on track and improve your chance of coping.

If eating and socializing over Christmas is difficult for your recovery, think about which of these tips would be most helpful to you. 

Can you try out one tip as an experiment for your next function, and see if it helps?  If it does, do it again at the next function. If not, try something else.

If you’re heading out to buy a new outfit for Christmas, my top tip for finding clothes you enjoy wearing is to buy clothes that FIT you, regardless of what size is on the label. 

If you’re like me, you probably have clothes that fit you right now that are a range of different sizes, depending on the brand. I bought all these summer tops on the same day, and yet I needed different sizes, even in the same brand on the same day. 

 Obviously, my body did not change from a size Medium through to an extra large in the space of one shopping trip, yet I bought clothes in those sizes. 

Remember: clothing sizes vary, they are NOT consistent. 

Buying clothes that are too small or too tight, just because they are your usual size, will backfire on you – if you wear them you’ll feel ‘too big’ all day, which may result in you restricting food to try to fit in to them, or binge eating from distress, or feeling bad about your body.

Wearing clothes that fit you is a form of body respect. You will feel more comfortable and look more relaxed, and it will help improve your body image over time.

It's a month to Christmas. This is often a really difficult time of year for people with disordered eating or body image concerns. 

Maybe you get stressed about getting dressed up for these events, or you worry about what you will eat or how much you will let yourself eat. Maybe your self critical voice goes into overdrive, or your perfectionistic side flares up. 

Whatever the source of stress, see if you can use these tips to help you through, and remember that we offer emergency appointments on Monday and Friday if you get stuck.
