About the network:

Thanks to support from the Tasmanian Government, Butterfly Foundation have appointed an Eating Disorders Coordinator to work locally on the ground in Hobart. Part of this role involves the delivery of community-based support to individuals experiencing eating disorders and their carers and families. Another important component of the role is to coordinate networking opportunities for service providers in order to enhance collaboration, referral and support. The network will be coordinated by Caitlin Walker, Eating Disorders Coordinator for Hobart, and Michelle Sperling, National Manager of Treatment and Support. The network aims to meet quarterly and feature local guest presenters. Please feel free to forward this invitation to colleagues who may be interested in joining this network.

About the coordinators:

Michelle is a registered Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist with extensive experience as an eating disorder clinician. Michelle has worked in a wide range of settings, including individual counselling, Butterfly’s Intensive Outpatient Program, and Recovery and Carer support groups and programs. Michelle has a holistic approach to eating disorder treatment and is a strong advocate that recovery is 100% possible.

Caitlin is a registered Psychologist and has recently completed her Clinical Masters. Caitlin has volunteered as a facilitator of eating disorder support groups and is passionate about improving access to eating disorder support for Tasmanians.
