Eating Disorders Resources for Western Australia

World Eating Disorders Action Day is on June 2nd.

As a women’s Counsellor and Psychotherapist who specialises in body image and trauma, I support numerous women in my practice who struggle with eating disorders.

In honour of World Eating Disorders Action Day, I’d like to share some eating disorder resources with you. The information provided is Perth-centric, however, I’ve also included some resources from around Australia and the world.
