Cindy Rushton

Cindy lives in Brisbane, has an honours degree in psychology and is pursuing a career as a clinical psychologist. Her initial fascination with eating disorders and their complex and challenging nature has become a passionate endeavour. This led her on a journey to undertake extensive research into this ever-increasing problem, a problem that is literally “eating away” at modern society.

Her driving motivation is to help as many people as possible to overcome their struggles and improve their quality of life. Having spent more than seven years investigating eating disorders and related issues, Cindy is aware that no single approach is right for everybody. However, a key part of recovery is awareness and understanding, which she aims to dramatically improve through her ongoing efforts. With the right approach, she believes recovery is possible.

Outside of her career, Cindy enjoys spending time with her soon to be husband and her close family. Whilst she enjoys travelling the world, she appreciates the little things in life the most; quality time with family, a great cup of coffee, a good book or time with her two cats.
