As a psychologist and dietitian, Mathilde Chappuis specialises in the treatment of patients suffering because of their eating behaviour, their weight or from an eating disorder. Mathilde Chappuis offers follow-ups in French and English for children, adolescents and adults suffering from feeding and eating disorders.
As part of her prior studies, Mathilde Chappuis attended English-speaking specialised courses on interviewing techniques and on appropriate nutrition for physical activity at Professionshøjskolen Metropol of Copenhagen. Within her latter studies, she pursued her training in the treatment of individuals suffering from eating disorders and weight-related issues with work placements at specialised services of the University Hospital of Geneva (HUG), such as Service d’enseignement thérapeutique pour maladies chroniques. Afterwards, she practised therapy for children, teenagers and their families with either feeding or eating disorders at HUG’s Consultation spécialisée dans les troubles de l’alimentation et du comportement alimentaire de l’enfant et de l’adolescent (AliNEA).
Graduate from University of Geneva in integrative clinical psychology and from the High School of Health of Geneva in nutrition and dietetics, Mathilde Chappuis’s approach is evidence-based and in line with cognitive-behavioural therapy and systemic psychotherapy. She is currently following a postgraduate education in systemic psychotherapy (family therapy) with Plateforme Systémique Genevoise.
Mathilde Chappuis joined the CCNP team in 2013 to evaluate and follow patients suffering from eating disorders. She offers a treatment merging nutritional and psychological dimensions, influenced by cognitive-behavioural and systemic approaches to therapy.
