About the research trial

Binge Eating eTherapy (BEeT) is an online therapy program to help treat people with Bulimia Nervosa. BEeT uses Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and has been designed by researchers and specialists at the University of Sydney, and eStimulation experts.

The program involves 10 sessions, completed at your own pace over 12 weeks. Each session is highly interactive, featuring therapy videos, psycho-education, personal stories and activities. BEeT also provides a range of treatment tools, including a Food Diary and Thought Diary, and offers ongoing motivation and encouragement.

Recruitment details

As part of a research study, we are recruiting volunteers with Bulimia Nervosa (16yrs+) for a free 12-week trial of the eTherapy program.

For this phase of the trial participants may be randomised to eTherapy with support of a clinician. Due to this, individuals interested in participating in the trial must be in reasonable transportation distance of the University of Sydney (Camperdown Campus).
