Ep 5 - Shane Jeffrey


Here's another Aussie doing amazing things in the world of whole body healing. Our colleague, the very humble and remarkable Shane Jeffrey shares his path to becoming an Eating Disorder Specialist and lots of surprising turns along the way including a dabble in law (which, frankly, explains a lot!). Shane brings a really down-to-earth and refreshing perspective and is a true leader of our field.

Here, Shane tells us about:

  • His graduate years in  clinical practice, and the patient who changed his mind about working in eating disorders

  • The incredible model he has developed for Dietitians and Health Care Practitioners to support clients towards natural eating - it's GENIUS

  • His hopes for the future of our profession

  • A sneak peek into his presentation "Can I exercise now?" for the EDRDPro online symposium


About Shane:

Shane has worked almost exclusively in the fields of eating disorders and weight concerns since graduating in 1993, with experience across the private and public sectors in both Australia and the UK. An active researcher in both fields, he also presents lectures on weight management and eating disorders across Queensland, and has stood on various national and international eating disorder committees. Shane is an avid sportsman outside of work, and regularly takes part in middle‐ to long‐distance running events, and participates in triathlons.
