Eating Disorder Counselling  – Clients

EATING DISORDERS OCCUR AT ANY BODY WEIGHT AND SIZE

When you attend eating disorder counselling you’ll have a health assessment and full history taken. It may be that you are referred to your GP for further tests if you are not already under the care of a medical team. If you are under the care of a medical team, we can discuss information sharing to ensure your care is integrated and safe. All care is confidential and unless you are at immediate risk.

No two clients are the same. You may have been struggling with a secret eating disorder for years, but haven’t felt able to speak about it. You might have residual medical or gut issues that are as a result of an eating disorder, or caused by an eating disorder. Perhaps there are other issues in your life that you need help with before you even think about letting go of your eating disorder. Some clients are on the cusp of developing an eating disorder and really need some support to prevent falling down that hole. Whatever your circumstances, eating disorder counselling can help.

RECOVERY IS POSSIBLE

Recovery looks different to everyone but it is possible to get to a point where you can eat to nourish your body, and find safe, non-harmful coping strategies to replace a negative relationship with food and the body. An eating disorder is nothing to be ashamed of and it can happen to anyone. Sometimes an eating disorder develops out of a lack of alternative coping strategies to help you feel safe and comforted. Through counselling you’ll have the opportunity to explore how else to feel safe when disordered eating behaviour comes knocking.
