Why refer to me?

My name is Danni McDougall and I am a mental health professional specialising in eating disorders, anxiety, depression and trauma.

With over a decade of experience in specialised mental health work, and lived experience of an eating disorder, I am uniquely qualified to help clients with their mental health challenges and eating disorder struggles.

I prioritise building trusting relationships with my clients, and am reliable, compassionate, and non-judgmental. 

I understand how difficult it can be to cope with an eating disorder and mental illness and believe that effective strategies and emotional support are vital to successful treatment.

I believe that a multidisciplinary approach is often the most effective way to address mental health challenges and eating disorders. That’s why I work closely with doctors and other mental health professionals to provide the best possible care for my clients.

By referring clients to me, you can be confident they will receive a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses their unique needs and challenges. I am committed to working collaboratively with you and other healthcare professionals to ensure that each client receives the best possible care.
