THE SWAN CENTRE
We opened our doors in 2017 as WA’s first ever multi-disciplinary outpatient eating disorder centre. We have expanded to two locations, our metropolitan clinic in Claremont and our regional clinic in Busselton.
The Swan Centre home to a team of dedicated clinicians who are specifically trained to provide support to those experiencing difficulties related to eating, weight, dieting and body image. We work closely within our team at Swan, as well as with other external psychiatrists, GPs, dietitians and other mental health professionals in order to accommodate an integrated multi-disciplinary approach to treatment.
We are committed to providing the highest quality care to our patients using treatment approaches based on evidence from scientific research. We are well-known for providing Family Based Treatment (FBT, formerly known as “the Maudsley Method”) for children and adolescents with eating disorders and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) for adults and older adolescents with eating disorders. We also have clinicians that specialise in:
- Schema Therapy for Eating Disorders
- Maudsley Model of Anorexia Treatment for Adults (MANTRA)
- Temperament Based Therapy with Supports
- Dialectical Behavioural Therapy
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
- Somatic Therapy
- Embodiment therapies, including Trauma-informed Yoga.
The team at the Swan Centre have a strong focus on research in order to improve the understanding and treatment of eating disorders. Our team have had their research published in international peer-reviewed journals and book chapters, as well as presenting at many national and international conferences.
