New Zealand Eating Disorders Clinic
Private Service, Mental Health, Paediatrics
The New Zealand Eating Disorders Clinic (NZEDC) has been established out of dedication to helping people get the best eating disorder treatment possible in the private setting.
We are a group of highly skilled and experienced specialist clinicians providing evidence based treatment for anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder in both adults and adolescents. We also offer treatment for less severe forms of disordered eating, including compulsive eating, difficulty managing around food and body image concerns.
Treatment specialities include Family Based Treatment (FBT) for adolescents and young adults and specialist therapist-led manualised psychological therapies for all age groups. We also provide specialist medical/psychiatric and nutritional consultations when required as part of treatment.
We also offer treatment for a range of other psychological, emotional and relational problems.
