Reaching Out For Help Is Hard

We hear you. And we know that everyone’s relationship with food and their body is different, which is why our services are tailored to meet you, where you’re at.

Binge Eating Disorder Treatment. At Home.

Does food and eating overwhelm you? Read everything there is to know about eating, but still feel like you don’t know how to “eat normally”. Start every day feeling strong but finding yourself out of control around food each night? We get it.

Our approach is founded on the principles of:

  • 1

    Building Inner Wisdom: reconnecting with body cues and rejecting diet mentality

  • 2

    Gentle Nutrition: Discovering what "health" means to you

  • 3

    All Bodies Are Good Bodies: Challenging society beauty ideals that dictate what we should look like

  • 4

    Community: Finding your community of people that "get it"

  • 5

    Building Your Toolbox: Navigating triggers and finding alternatives

  • 6

    Holistic Care: Building Your Village Of Health Professionals to support your journey

It’s quite common to over-eat. Having second or thirds of a tasty meal, or enjoying all the delicious foods cooked up in a christmas lunch.

However, for some people, over-eating might be a regular occurrence and leave you feeling out of control, embarrassed and ashamed about your eating habits. But, as much as you wish to stop, the compulsion to keep eating can be so strong.

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is a serious eating disorder. It’s more than just overindulging, it’s a genuine emotional and physical struggle (often daily) that can leave you feeling isolated, overwhelmed and full of guilt.

When you work with an Imbodi Health Binge Eating Dietitian, we don’t just look at your diet. We take a holistic approach to understanding you as person and develop a plan to build a healthy relationship with food and body, together.

We adopt the Health At Every Size (HAES) philosophy, which focuses on changing health behaviour, rather than setting goals around changing body weight, shape or size.

Through Binge Eating Disorder treatment together, we will also explore things such as food neutrality – the idea that there is no one food better than the other, identify and challenge any “food fears” these are foods that might cause guilt, shame and anxiety, explore our body image, and develop trust in our body’s own internal cues.

Your Binge Eating Coach Just A Click Away

Discovery Call

A complimentary discovery call with an Imbodi Health eating disorder dietitian is your opportunity to get to know us and share your struggles, goals and concerns. During this call, we'll discuss how we might work together and what this looks like moving forward.

Onboarding

We kick of the onboarding process by getting you to fill out some forms, booking in your appointments and downloading our app so you can kick start the messaging support and start to work through our online program to compliment the work we're doing together.

Weekly or Fortnightly Check-Ins

We'll collaboratively decide whether we want to work together on a weekly or fortnightly basis. We often say these sessions can seem like a psychology session, but we talk about food. We'll discuss what's been going well for you and any challenges you may have faced, develop some new strategies that can help you move towards your goals and provide nutrition counselling to help support your journey.

How We Work:

We don’t do a one-size fits approach. Our unique way of working with you provides you the support you need, when you need it.

  • Your personal dietitian: It’s important that we’re a good match to work together, and that’s why we have discovery call’s with all of our new clients so you can see if we’re a good fit.
  • Personalised Plan: After a few sessions of getting to know you, your dietitian can make a comprehensive assessment and develop a personalised nutrition plan to help you reach your goals.
  • 1:1 Support: The regular 1:1 sessions with your dietitian will be the backbone of your work together. You’ll work together to understand not just what you eat, but why you eat, develop skills in developing a regular eating pattern and work through challenges that come up along the way.
  • Holistic: We don’t just look at food, we also look at areas such as sleep, movement, digestion, supplements, medication and more.
  • Working With Your Team: We believe that recovery works best when we have a team involved. We’ll make regular contact with your care team to ensure we’re all on the same page.
  • Online Program: To accompany our work together, you’ll receive access to our signature online program to support the work that we do in our 1:1 sessions. We’ll cover areas such as identifying food rules, understanding our body image story and building balanced meals.
  • Messaging Support: We believe that the real challenges happen outside of the session. Our clients get between session to support to answer any tricky questions that happen along the way.
