Eating disorders explained

Eating disorders can be explained as a negative attitude towards food, severe enough to change the person’s eating habits. Someone suffering from an eating disorder may develop an obsessive habit to monitor their weight and body shape, gaining an unhealthy relationship with food and exercise which may cause damage to their health.

The most common eating disorders are anorexia and bulimia, the former, being when a person attempts to maintain a very low weight or achieve it, through lack of eating or over-exercising. Bulimia is diagnosed when a person attempts to control their weight by inducing vomiting after binge eating.

Our approach to treating Eating Disorders

We offer help for people with different eating disorders.

An eating disorder is a sensitive subject and we take the utmost care with our clients. Mostly we will use talking therapies with our client, such as cognitive behavioural therapy.

Recovery from eating disorders is a slow process, using a mixture of CBT and family orientated therapy we can help the client come to terms with their illness and to set goals and outcomes of the treatment.

If you would like to find out if we could help you, we invite you to contact us.

What Clients Say

Everything is going very well. I’ve stopped drinking diet cola completely, I drink mainly water now, with the occasional fruit juice, and my teeth feel 100% better. I haven’t had any cravings for starchy foods, I’ve stopped eating bread and butter between meals, and I’m eating more fruit. All in all I’d say it’s been very successful. I make a point of not weighing myself, but I do feel a little thinner, and more importantly I feel a lot more positive.
