Ashleigh Olive - Psychologist

Ashleigh is a registered psychologist with a passion for body-image and exercise-related concerns.


Ashleigh’s postgraduate research investigated sport-related body weight pressures and body-image concerns in elite athletes. This sparked a passion for and commitment to promoting positive body-images, and healthy relationships with food and movement among elite athletes, exercisers, and the wider community. Through such endeavours, Ashleigh has acquired extensive experience in providing support to those struggling with exercise dependence, compulsive exercise, relative energy deficiency in sport, and adherence to safe exercise guidelines during eating disorder recovery.
