Addiction to Drugs/Looking for a good Psychotherapist


Hi Mr Plesman
I am looking for a good nutritional psychotherapist who understands the relationship between nutrition, mental health and drug addiction. I live in country NSW. There are so many therapists listed but don't seem to have all of what I am looking for. I would be grateful if you could help me with some recommendation. I am willing to travel.
Thank you for your time.

Hi Maree,

I know it is not easy to find a nutritional psychotherapist. This is why I have devoted much of my time to teaching a self-help course for psychotherapy. This is done by getting people to read articles on the various subjects in this area. If you want to search for a nutritional psychotherapist I suggest you consult:

Looking for Complementary Health Practitioners at

On the other hand if you could let me know what area or what symptoms you are dealing with, perhaps I could refer you to various articles that deal with these.

If you go to

you could ask questions there.

Jurriaan Plesman, Nutritional Psychotherapist


I have a degree in Psychology from the Sydney University and a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Nutrition. I am also the author of “GETTING OFF THE HOOK” which deals with the nutritional and psychological treatment of personality disorders. It is freely available on the internet at Google Book Search. I am interested in the relationship between nutrition and behaviour, and as a Probation ans Parole Officer facilitated groups for offenders, many of whom were alcoholics and drug addicts, sex offenders or compulsive gamblers, as well as the whole gamut of “personality disorders”. I am also the ex-editor of the Hypoglycemic Health Association of Australia Newsletter, a quarterly publication dealing with hypoglycemia and related health problems. Its web site, together with a shortened course of PSYCHOTHERAPY can be visited at:
