Press & About Emmy

What is The Recover Clinic?

The Recover Clinic is an outpatient eating disorders clinic which opened its doors in 2007 – the realisation of a dream by owner and Director, Emmy Brunner, to create an eating disorder treatment model tailored to the ‘whole person’: body, mind and spirit.

Emmy spent many years working as a clinician in the sector and found that too often treatment was concerned only with food and recovery from the physical symptoms – rather than looking at the root causes of an eating disorder.

What is different about Recover?

The holistic program that The Recover Clinic offers includes creative therapies, meditation, spiritual exploration, movement therapy, drama therapy, CBT, nutrition and much more, alongside the physical assessments. Their recovery rate among their graduates (those who have completed The Recover Clinic program) is 100%.
