Our Focus

At McCallum Place we help patients restore energy, exercise balance, flexibility and trust through individualized evidence-based treatment, building skills for well being, delivered by an experienced and compassionate staff. We always treat patients and their families with an open heart, respect their potential and recognize their suffering. We help patients improve self-compassion and reduce judging mind states. We recognize that our patients have difficulty adjusting to change, struggles putting things in context (central coherence) and suffer from rumination, so these struggles along with the fear of accepting a natural body weight size and shape are primary therapy targets.

We focus therapy on values and work to develop a flexible concept of self. Patients learn to face fears and develop skills and confidence in relationships and emotion regulation. Learning from the past, but not being defined by it is always important as many have suffered from trauma.
