NZ Eating Disorder Specialists has opened its private clinic in Auckland to help people and their families overcome eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. The clinic has 30 years of expertise and is the only clinic in New Zealand using the family therapy approach of Intensive Structural Therapy.
As a profound shift away from therapy which treats eating disorders as an individual problem, Intensive Structural Therapy has had proven long term success from changing patients social environment and family interactions.
"Establishing a clinic is an important part of our efforts to show that eating disorders need to be addressed as one of the most fatal psychiatric diseases per capita and are becoming more prevalent in New Zealand society,"
said Charles Fishman M.D, Director at the NZ Eating Disorder Specialists.
