Eating disorders are one of the most common psychiatric diagnoses in young women. It is an unhealthy attitude to food which takes over your life. They involve eating too much or too little. At the heart of the issue is obsession, control and poor self image.
A typical sufferer will be female aged 13 to 17, competitive, a perfectionist, with a high need for control. But it can affect anyone of any gender, any age, any walk of life.
Therapeutic interventions are mainly behavioural. They tend to focus on changing your eating routines, food choices, portion size, or the feelings surrounding food. Rather than your feelings about you.
Working through Eating Disorders starts with working on how you feel about yourself. Your self image and what you believe you are deserving of. It requires time and patience but together we can change how see and treat yourself.
