Eating disorders

An eating disorder is a mental health condition in which eating, exercise, body weight and shape become an unhealthy preoccupation in a person’s life. Eating disorders are complex and can take many forms. People of all shapes and sizes can be affected by an eating disorder.

Treatment for an eating disorder usually involves a mix of psychiatric interventions, psychological care, nutritional counselling and self-help strategies.

 

How do we treat Eating Disorders at Ramsay Clinic Northside?

Our Sydney Eating Disorder Clinic specialises in providing the highest standard of treatment for people suffering from a range of eating disorders. Typically developed during adolescence, eating disorders can progress and emerge into adulthood.

There are four categories of eating disorders: Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, OSFED (Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder), EDNOS (Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified) and Binge Eating Disorder.

Our Eating Disorder Programs offer a high level of support to people living with an eating disorder to enhance motivation and develop skills, knowledge and resources to arrest unhelpful eating behaviours and attitudes and to continue the journey of recovery.

Inpatient

Our inpatient eating disorder treatment is run by an experienced multi-disciplinary team who will provide you with 24 hour care.

We will provide you with a comfortable, stable environment allowing you to focus solely on your recovery.

Through the eating disorder inpatient service you will have :

  • Access to treatment, information and resources to help support and drive your recovery goals
  • Have the opportunity to participate in our holistic care program designed to improve your physical, nutritional and social health.

Day

The Eating Disorders day program is designed for patients who are ready to begin the lengthy journey of recovery. The program is designed to meet the needs of patients suffering from Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia, EDNOS and Binge Eating Disorder, as they begin to change and challenge eating disordered thoughts and behaviours, removing the restrictions that these place on their lives.

In general we do not differentiate between the individual eating disordered behaviours.
