Many people experience difficulties in their relationship with food at various times in their life. We may use food to comfort ourselves, punish ourselves or as a way of suppressing difficult feelings. These may manifest as eating disorders such a anorexia or bulimia or have an adverse effect on our self-esteem and interfere with our ability to live life to the full. Therapy for Eating Disorders helps by exploring the root causes of your unhealthy relationship with food, and help you to tackle the issues.
Counselling for eating disorders is likely to include exploring the reasons for your difficult relationship with food, building self esteem, and looking at negative thoughts and beliefs that may be triggering and sustaining your issues. This may support you in developing a healthier and more satisfying relationship with food.
