Do you feel overweight or maybe eat for the wrong reasons? Counselling can help.
It is quite normal for people occasionally to eat larger amount of food than they usually do. However, when you feel that overeating creates feelings of hopelessness, guilt, despair, depression and lack of control, then maybe it is not just a temporary unhealthy habit but a more complicated problem. The good news is, that binge eating is something that can be treated.
Even though binge eating can create a weight problem, this is not always the case. There are many underweight or slim people who suffer from binge eating.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) can help you to identify what the real problem behind the binge eating is, what makes you overeat and struggle to stop, how to avoid temptations and listen to your body, as well as, develop healthier eating habits.
Binge eating is also developed by a difficulty to manage your negative feelings such loneliness and boredom. In therapy you will learn new ways to overcome these negative feelings and develop healthier coping strategies that you can use when you experience any negative emotions.
Working on your self-image, confidence and self-esteem is part of the therapeutic process.
Occasionally, the support of a nutritionist and psychiatrist is important. In those cases, a referral can be arranged.
