Effective Eating Disorder Treatment

Up to 3.4 million people are affected by an eating disorder in the UK alone and many millions more suffer from what could be termed disordered eating. If you are struggling with bulimia, anorexia, binge eating or restricting, you are probably feeling out of control and caught in a repeating cycle. You may feel that you have an unhealthy relationship with food, where you deny yourself certain foods, and then become wracked with guilt if you eat them. It may be that you are using exercise to control or limit the damage caused by your eating disorder. The high levels of emotion towards ‘good’ and ‘bad’ foods cause problems because we cannot think rationally when we are feeling emotional.

But you CAN get control of an eating disorder and gain a healthy relationship with food once more.

What is behind the eating disorder?

You may or may not be aware of the emotional thoughts that are driving your eating disorder, but there is a strong possibility that there is a trauma pattern behind it. The experiences we have change our perception of ourselves and how we view our lives and everything in it. Some things that we experience mean that we have emotional reactions to certain situations. In the case of eating disorders, some past experiences can change our relationship with food and what we feel that we will get from eating it or deny ourselves from having it.

Our therapy explores the emotions behind disordered eating because it is a response to a feeling. That feeling links to a need and by recognising and unlinking that need we can break the cycle.

We offer a free phone consultation to better explain how we work and to gain an initial understanding of the issues that you are struggling with.

Is trauma behind your eating disorder?

Trauma patterns are what the emotional brain lays down when it experiences something that has threatened it emotionally or physically. The trauma pattern will be stored in order for the brain to recognise if it is happening again. One of the ways it protects us is to trigger the behaviour that it put in place to cope with it when it happened.

In the case of eating disorders, this can be to turn to or restrict food.

The kind of trauma patterns that can link to an eating disorder vary widely, but some examples are being criticised about weight or appearance especially in our teen years, having a parent with their own issues around food or an association of food being linked to comfort or attention.

This is not long-term therapy. In just a few sessions you could be feeling like you’re back in control and have a healthy relationship to food and exercise.

We work on a session-by-session basis, so you can just book and pay for one session at a time.

We always have choices to make. What will you choose today? Will you do nothing and stay the same? Or will you pick up the phone today and change your life forever?

You don’t have to continue suffering, you can make a lasting change right now.
