Make Changes

Hi- My name is Dr Salena Bhanji, and I'm a Counselling Psychologist with a true passion for therapy and over a decade’s worth of clinical and therapeutic experience in both Australia and the UK.

I work with Adults and older Adolescents (15+) and provide a wide range of short-term, medium-term and long-term psychotherapies.

My expertise is in working with people are struggling with various forms of disordered eating or body image issues. These issues may include emotional eating, binge-eating, constant dieting or restrictive eating, food anxiety or phobias, orthorexia, health -related eating issues, body dysmorphia, body disaatisfaction (shaming), exercise-addiction- or pretty much any issue related to eating or body.

Under this umbrella - I also provide treatment for eating disorders including Binge Eating Disorder (BED), Bulimia Nervosa (BN), Anorexia Nervosa (AN), Other Specified Feeding or Eating Dsorder (OSFED), Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) and others.

In addition to eating and body image issues, I also provide a range of evidence-based therapies for other mental health issues including:

* Depression and low mood

* General anxiety, social anxiety, health anxiety, phobias, panic attacks and obsessive compulsive disorder

* Addiction or dependency disorders (e.g. alcohol, gambling, technology etc.)

* Attention Deficit Disorder

* Stress 

* Insomnia or sleep difficulties

* Low self-esteem/ self worth

* Relationship/ Family issues

* PTSD and Trauma

* WorkCover (SIRA), Traffic MAA claims and workplace isses

Therapy is different for each person, however the process of change tends to rely heavily on the nature of the therapeutic relationship; one that is built on trust, acceptance, empathy and authentic connection. Building this therapeutic relationship has become a crucial foundation of my practice, and with this, a sound reliance on blending together different approaches to meet the unique needs of every individual, as diverse as they may be.

There is also a strong focus on making therapy an active process, so that there is a sense of accomplishment at the end of each session when new skills are learnt and can be put into action. To achieve this, there is a lot of time spent on clarifying clients' goals and developing a clear roadmap of ‘what is actually going on here?’ , 'how did we get here?' and ‘what can we do about it?’, with an underpinning in psychological science and neuropsychology. Often when people understand the role that the brain plays in their problems, they can let go of the self-blame or self- defeating narratives that can erode mental health over time.

If you're thinking of booking an appointment for yourself or for your child, but would like to ask me a few questions first, you're more than welcome to send me an email or give me a call, and I'll be in touch as soon as I can.
