Multidisciplinary Team

The Crescent Clinic Eating Disorders Unit comprises by far the most experiences and comprehensive professional team of any eating disorders facility in South Africa.  With the director of the programme having formed part of the original team that started the first private sector eating disorders unit in 1994, many of the current team are still professionals that comprised the multidisciplinary team that moved from Kenilworth Clinic to Crescent Clinic when the programme moved to the latter facility in 2001.  All professionals on our multidisciplinary team are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa, while some team members hold additional registration with other international health councils.

Our Multidisciplinary clinical team comprises:

•    A team of three Clinical and Counselling Psychologists
•    A Psychiatrist
•    Two Occupational Therapists
•    Two specialist Dieticians
•    Qualified Drama Therapist
•    A Qualified Group Analyst
•    Specialist Addictions Counsellors
•    A unit-specific 24-hour supervising nursing team
