Helen Dean – dietitian and counsellor

Helen Dean

As a dietitian and counsellor,  I am deeply caring, gentle, warm and welcoming in my counselling approach, assisting you to settle in and feel safe and comfortable before and during our sessions. I am focused and intentional in my approach, and seek to be empowering, energetic and fun with the people I work with.

I provide counselling support for eating disorder and body image concerns across the lifespan in a safe and inclusive environment. 

My areas of interest include:

  • Eating disorders – I provide Family based Therapy, family led therapy and CBT to assist adolescents and children who suffer from anorexia, bulimia, disordered eating, bing eating, body image issues and ARFID.
  • I provide counselling to children, adolescents and families to work through school related issues- social anxiety; bullying, school refusal, trauma, separation, anxiety and depression.
  • Nutrition advice to assist with mental wellness


  • Master of Counselling
  • Training for clinicians in Family Based Therapy
  • The Essentials training in Eating Disorders
  • Master of Teaching (primary/secondary teaching)
  • Master of Nutrition and Dietetics
  • Bachelor of Applied Science

My goal is to empower and help you make the best possible choices for your overall health and well-being
