About the Clinic
At CFIH we aim to help people overcome their struggles with eating, weight, and body-image to improve their overall physical and emotional health.
Our practitioners are highly skilled and experienced in the assessment and treatment of a range of physical and emotional health conditions. All CFIH practitioners have specialist training, experience, and a dedication to eating, weight, and body-image concerns. Our commitment to evidence-based practice and improving client outcomes is demonstrated through our ongoing involvement in professional training and scientific research.
Individuality recognises that no two clients are alike and hence considers the unique, individual physiology, psychology, and lifestyle factors of each individual client.
Client-centered treatment is focused on recognising the client as a person, rather than simply treating their condition.
Integrated: recognises the interconnections of psychological, nutritional, physiological, social, environmental, and spiritual factors.
Partnership: a joint collaboration between the client and the practitioner, where the client is regarded as possessing expertise regarding their individual needs.
Scientific treatment is always informed by the latest, evidence-based research regarding the most effective modes of treatment.
Evolutionary: a philosophy that neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative therapies uncritically.
Good treatment should be based in good science, be inquiry driven, and be open to new paradigms.
Educational: aims to educate clients to be the masters of their own health and destiny, rather than promoting reliance upon health practitioners or services.
Inspiring: focuses on the promotion of health and the prevention of illness, rather than merely the treatment of disease.
