Body Dysmorphic Disorder clinical specialist and psychometric scientist. Teaching Associate at Monash University.
Toni and Ben have collectively worked with individuals with body image concerns for over 15 years. Throughout this time, they’ve come across many people seeking cosmetic procedures to improve their confidence and self-image, both successfully and unsuccessfully. This has allowed them to develop an intricate knowledge of the factors which are most likely to maximise patient satisfaction with cosmetic procedures.
At ReadyMind, we realised that psychologists and cosmetic professionals share similar goals, hoping to improve their patient’s self-esteem, confidence and quality of life. This experience, combined with years of science and research on the interaction between cosmetic procedures and mental health, led to the birth of ReadyMind.
