What We're About

The Wellness Workshop was originally founded as a welcoming space to help sufferers of eating disorders and mental illness access support and recovery services such as Dietetics & Nutrition, Intuitive Eating, Exercise Physiology, Personal Training, Wellness Coaching and Meditation. We align with the Health At Every Size (HAES) philosophy, providing a weight-neutral approach to healthcare that focuses on improving overall health behaviours, rather than the rigid pursuit of weight loss. Our clients’ range in age from 8 to 85 years old, and come from a variety of backgrounds, lifestyles and upbringings. We offer kind, considerate and compassionate care, and go above and beyond to ensure your overall physical, mental and emotional wellbeing needs are met. Most of our services can be claimed through Medicare and Private Health Insurance, as well as offering services to patients under the care of NDIS, DVA and TAC.

What THE WELLNESS WORKSHOP standS for

“The Difference between knowing better and doing better.”
 

whY WORK WITH OUR WELLNESS TEAM?

Australians’ understanding and access to better health services has never been better. Unfortunately, this doesn’t often translate into action. This is where The Wellness Workshop really stands out. Our Qualified Allied Health Practitioners and Professionals don’t just provide the advice required to improve your health, happiness and wellbeing, but also offer the guidance, direction and motivation to really facilitate the change long-term. We do this using a number of techniques including methods from Behavioural Change Psychology, Positive Psychology, Motivational Interviewing, Personality Profiling and many more.

EJ,

What seemed like such a daunting process of learning how to use all the big scary machines at the gym and learning how to take care of my body was made fun and easy with the help of Melani. She is so much fun, so nice but not a push over…she’s the perfect amount of support and push that I needed to make a change in my lifestyle.
