You’re here because you want to implement real change for lasting eating disorder recovery.
You’re here because you want to find joy in food. And make peace with your body.
We do not use weight as a determining factor for whether you deserve our support. The first thing we ask when you get in touch is not “How much do you weigh?” but, rather, “How is this problem affecting your life?”
We understand each person’s experience of an eating problem is unique and so are their challenges, triggers, and roadblocks. That’s why we believe in supporting you with an approach that works best for you as an individual.
Our practitioners are trained to help you with your overall physical, emotional, social, and mental wellness. This is important because many of those who suffer from eating disorders cannot access support through traditional treatment centres. This may happen because they aren’t deemed “sick enough”.
Others do access support initially, but they leave with a fractured sense of treatment. Once they reach a certain level of physical “safety,” they’re often left on their own. We believe support is critical far beyond the “safety” stage. And far before the “emergency” stage too.
I’m so glad you’ve found your way here, but I’m also deeply sorry for any suffering you’ve experienced. I’ve seen first-hand how difficult it can be to find support that is truly geared to helping you make a full recovery.
I began my career as a professional dancer. But, early in my career, I became unwell with a parasite that led to continued gut problems. Eventually, through this illness, I developed an eating disorder. I saw many different practitioners—dietitians, therapists, doctors, coaches, and even a hypnotherapist. Some didn’t understand nutrition, while others didn’t understand the emotional side of things. All the options for support felt disconnected.
Throughout the process, I hoped for someone who understood the eating disorder and nutrition but was also invested in my emotional well-being. I wanted someone to support me in moving forward. When I finally broke free from the problem, I was relieved—but exhausted. I knew there had to be a better way for others to approach recovery. And I wanted to be part of it.
After years of study and working with clients, I founded Natural Food Therapy to provide a multidisciplinary approach to eating disorders that centres around you. At Natural Food Therapy, we focus on the individual, as each person’s experience is completely unique. Instead of working with you session to session, we work with you closely over a period of time and are there every step of the way. We commit to your recovery and make sure you are not just a number.
If there’s one thing I know for sure...
Recovery is possible. And you deserve it.

“I have lived with an eating disorder for 17 years and I lost hope in recovery being possible. I write this review because Sasha's approach has been life-changing for me and her kindness, patience and support throughout has carried me through a very dark place. She did not weigh me or push me too far out of my comfort zone. Instead, she focused on what needed to change and supported me with zero judgment.
I have started to find happiness in my days again and food has become something I find enjoyment in rather than shame and punishment. Today I come away from my time with Sasha with so much more than I ever knew I could have.”

"When I first went to see Sasha, I suffered with fussy eating, anxiety, and weight issues. Sasha is very patient and really understands. She not only helped me with my food issues but also helped me understand nutrition. My diet is now much healthier. Food for me is no longer about dieting, guilt or regret, but nourishing my body."

We work with those over 16 years of age who do not currently require inpatient care.
If you or a loved one fits these requirements and suffers with an eating disorder, we would love to support you. We work with both individuals who have been diagnosed and those who recognise that they are developing an unhealthy relationship with food and body image.
Common eating disorders we work with include Binge Eating Disorder, Anorexia, Bulimia, Atypical presentations, Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorders (OSFED). That said, we strongly encourage those who are not diagnosed but recognise a problem to come forward for support.
