Eating Disorder Program

Eating Disorder Program

At Byron Private we approach the treatment of eating disorders holistically and understand that simply addressing the difficulties associated with food and eating is not enough, an integrated holistic approach is needed that looks at and values all parts of the individual and their environment. We have drawn together a highly qualified team of practitioners that are focused on supported the healthy self and healing the eating disorder self. We incorporate our person centred approach with foundations of systemic therapy to bring about shifts in behaviours, thoughts and relationship. Eating disorders according to Carolyn Costin, renowned eating disorder author, speaker and clinician eating disorders can be healed “When the healthy self is strong enough to deal with all that comes your way in life, the eating disorder self will no longer be useful or necessary". We believe at Byron Private that each client needs to be taken seriously and treated individually; there is no one solution for all clients, each individual is unique and may have different entanglements and support needs.

Features of Byron Privates Eating Disorder Program

Weight and BMI Admission Policy Byron Private’s approach to eating disorders is to support the healthy part of the individual through a range of therapeutic and alternative therapies and a balanced lifestyle.  Our Centre is not a hospital based “feeding centre” or focused on food and weight, however, if you enter the program with a low BMI our GP may set guidelines around further weight loss.  Management of those with low BMI may include weekly weighing by our GP. If the residents weight falls while in treatment below levels deemed safe by our GP it can inhibit the ability to cognitively and physically take part in our program at Byron Private. What to do now: If you or your loved one is suffering from an eating disorder or disordered issues surrounding food, weight or body image and yearn to look at the difficulties in a held, safe and secure space then contact Byron Private Treatment Centre about our intensive residential program.
