The Redleaf Practice has grown from a solo private practice, to a large purpose-built multidisciplinary eating disorder clinic. The Redleaf Practice name originated from our previous location, Redleaf Avenue in Wahroonga.
Our practice was founded by Clinical Psychologist, Chris Thornton. Chris has worked in eating disorders for close to 30 years, during which time he has consulted with inpatient, day patient and outpatient clinics to improve the Australian eating disorder sector. These continued efforts culminated in Chris being awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award in the field of eating disorders by the Australian and New Zealand Academy of Eating Disorders in 2020. As the Clinical Director, Chris provides regular supervision and case consultation to all of the Psychologists at Redleaf.
We seek to not only provide the highest level of care to our clients, but to also ensure that our clinicians have a supportive and growth-focused working environment so they can focus their time and energy on what matters – you!
