About us
We have opportunities available for psychologists who are passionate about providing client-centred, empirically-supported psychological assessment, treatment, and support for individuals experiencing eating, weight, or body image related
difficulties.

 

Our goal is to make empirically-supported treatment available in the community, and we have a reputation as a leading treatment provider in this area. Our services are in high demand, and we look forward to welcoming more psychologists to our
committed and supportive team.


We focus on the psychological assessment and treatment of eating, weight, and body image concerns and associated physical health (e.g., diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome) and mental health (e.g., depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders) difficulties in
adults, adolescents and children.


We have strong links with GPs, psychiatrists, and allied health providers including dietitians and other psychologists. Many clients also find us through word of mouth, both through existing clients and our website and social media.


We are seeking psychologists for our East Melbourne Office to provide a combination of face-to-face and telehealth appointments.


The team
CEWBI psychologists are experienced, passionate, and committed to providing bestpractice, evidence-based care to individuals with eating, weight and body image concerns.


Our practice Director, Dr Leah Brennan, is a Clinical, Health, Educational and Developmental Psychologist. Leah is passionate about maintaining a supportive and evolving practice where psychologists feel valued, are supported to deliver empirically-supported treatment, and have opportunities to develop their clinical skills and interests.


Our Client Support Leader, Megan, looks after both our clients and psychologists. Megan takes care of most reception and administration duties, leaving our psychologists to focus their time and energy on their clients. Megan is renowned for anticipating our needs and providing seamless systems that reduce admin demands on psychologists.
