Joy 9 year follow up

Joy came to me when she was referred by a Health Maintenance Organisation; she was 35 years old at the time, and she had had Bulimia for 20 years.

This video begins with a re-enactment of our second session. She had been discharged from a psychiatric hospital after taking a large overdose. This session deals with the essential issues of eating disorder and her other problems.

This video is a re-enactment of an actual session with Dr Fishman, shared with the permission of the client. Names have been changed.

Endorsements from Clients

  • Hello Charles! I am unsure if you will even remember who I am haha, but this is [name withheld] – I saw you in (I think) 2017 with anorexia.

  • My wife and I felt quite emotional last Monday after our short Zoom session. All three of us hugged. It felt like the end of a relatively short but profoundly enriching journey with you which started in June at your home office on Waiheke Island.

  • Dear Dr Fishman Thank you so much for this website. I have a long history of swinging between bulimia and compulsive over-eating. I am currently a compulsive over-eater.
