Psychotherapy for Eating Disorders
Eating Disorders are serious psychological and physical illnesses, which can sometimes have fatal consequences. Eating Disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating nervosa. Unfortunately, for those who are suffering from eating disorders it can take some time before they realise that they require medical assistance and help from mental health professionals. Feelings of guilt, shame, loneliness and disgust can overcome our natural instinct to seek assistance and this is something we see time and time again with all eating disorders.
Eating Disorders are not just about the intake of food or output of energy – they indicate to us that there are serious disturbances at a psychical level. Once you have made that all important step to ask for help, it may seem like an impossible road ahead. However, acknowledging what is happening in your life is the first step towards addressing deep-seated issues that may underlie an eating disorder.
