Eating Disorders and Obesity Psychology Research Clinic (known as EDOC) provides highly affordable, evidence-based psychological treatment to individuals with eating disorders, feeding disorders, obesity and co-morbidities.
EDOC also conducts ground-breaking clinical research to further inform its treatment practices.
Many individuals who are obese have tried to lose weight many times and have failed. If a person fails many times at something they feel hopeless and may give up. Weight loss is difficult and everyone needs support.
Clinical psychologists are experts at behaviour change and can best support obese individuals with their weight loss efforts and treat any underlying problems.
