We have a 17 y/o D with social anxiety and an eating disorder NOS altho that may change to bulimia.  Individual therapy hasn't shifted anything so I'm investigating FBT.  Could anyone recommend a good therapist or clinic in Melbourne, Australia?  I would value your thoughts and suggestions.  Many thanks.
Welcome to the forum. 

It depends a bit on where you are. There are a few therapists around Melbourne who have good reputations. 

You could try Vicki O'Dwyer https://insideoutinstitute.org.au/treatment-services/vicki-o-dwyer
or Linsey Atkins http://www.drlinseyatkins.com.au/bio.html 
or Maria Ganci http://www.fbtcentral.com.au/about-me/ 

 We saw Vicki , but ended up not using FBT.
