  • So, why bother?
    First, tackling perfectionism is nothing new. Prior to this program being developed, there have been multiple studies which investigated whether targeting perfectionism can improve mental wellbeing. If you are interested in finding out more about these studies, you can follow these links which summarise the scientific evidence under the Research tab below. Study 1: Study 2: Study 3:
  • Do I really need to do the full program to get the benefits?
    Some of the researchers behind this program conducted earlier studies which looked at whether completing more sessions of self-guided therapy for perfectionism had an impact on how successful the treatment was. The results? Unsurprisingly the more modules completed, the bigger the reduction in perfectionism scores reported. Not only that, but completing more modules was linked with improvements in mood and body image flexibility whereas completing fewer modules didn’t see these additional improvements. So, the bottom line is: if you want to see results, then you should ideally aim to complete most, if not all, of the eight modules.
  • What happens if I withdraw my consent to participate?
    We understand that life gets in the way and participating in the full program will not always be possible. If this happens, you can withdraw at any time. You will still have access to the program for the same amount of time, and we may still contact you (via email) with a survey regarding your wellbeing or experience in the program. If you would prefer not to be contacted at all, this is fine too and we will not contact you regarding any follow-ups. Just send us an email at with the subject heading 'Withdraw Consent'.
  • Who can I contact if I have further questions?
    You can email the research team at We will respond within 2-3 business days. Please note we are not a 24 hour service and in the event of a crisis call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or emergency services on 000 (if in Australia).
  • Can I find out the outcome of this study?
    Absolutely! Results from this study won't be available until 2023, however, if you are interested to know the outcome at this time you can email We will provide you with a short summary of the findings and links to where those results are published.
