Molly has worked in a wide range of areas across the lifespan including youth mental health, disability and aged care.
Molly is passionate about helping people turn down the volume on diet culture, the food police and the inner critic and turn up the volume on the internal messages of the body – intuition, hunger, fullness, satiety and pleasure.
Molly’s goal is to help people live their life with a little more ease, by creating more enjoyable experiences and happier relationships with food, eating and the body. Molly using HAES principles and Non-Diet, Intuitive Eating approaches as the foundations for her work with all clients.

AGE LIMITS FOR ACCEPTING NEW REFERRALS:
Please note some practitioners have boundaries on the age of clients they will accept as new referrals.
We request that for all new clients aged 15 years and younger that a pre-assessment questionnaire be completed to assist us in triaging the young person and family.
For all clients aged 15 or younger we request that the initial assessment be with the parents/ carer only.
Eating disorders do not just affect the person but families as a whole.
This is an important part of the assessment process and will help us to get a clear history of the development of the eating disorder and aid in setting up a treatment team and clear treatment goals moving forward.
Family Based Therapy/Treatment (FBT) is the gold standard for supporting children and adolescents with eating disorders. The Eat Love Live team are not trained in FBT or family therapy.
We can be an adjunct to this important treatment process, provide a safe space for discussion around meal planning, information about eating disorders, physical and psychological risks associated with the eating disorder, normal puberty changes to the body, guidelines to adequate amounts of nutrition and help clear many of the myths about food and bodies in our community.
We appreciate that accessing paediatric and adolescent services is difficult and there are long wait lists. As with all clients, we insist that all adolescents are linked in with a multidisciplinary team including a GP and a mental health clinician - be it a psychologist or psychiatrist. And we suggest that clients make the referral to CAMHS/CYMHS and / or private family therapy and be on the waiting list for this support.
Along with the GP or paediatrician we can provide information and support while families are waiting for this important more intensive support.
Parents can speak with their GP or Paediatrician about referrals to these supports.
