Services offered by NZ Eating Disorder Specialists

The causes of eating disorders are not entirely known, but the premise NZ Eating Disorder Specialists takes to successfully overcome them is based on the family acting as a resource for healing.

Our family therapy sessions use Intensive Structural Therapy to focus on the interactions that can be observed in the sessions between the individual and other members.


Medical insurance may cover part of the therapy sessions. On the initial enquiry about our services we will discuss the appropriate fee based on the initial appointment needed. We will also discuss ongoing fees when planning the length of the treatment with the individual and family. We have a sliding scale and no one is turned away because of inability to pay.


NZ Eating Disorder Specialists will see patients that have been referred to us by general practitioners, family or friends. In cases where the individual has no general practitioner we can assist to have them medically assessed. We can also prescribe medications when necessary.

  • 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.
