Eating Disorders

From anorexia, to bulimia, to overeating patterns, eating disorders are frequently experienced by both men and women, young people to older adults. There can be body image issues, self esteem issues, relational issues, abuse issues, at the root of these difficulties. The recovery from eating disorders is made easier with support. With younger people, it is often necessary to get the family involved.

Professional help can make the process go more smoothly. It is hard for people to remain motivated to recover from eating disorders, because they are faced with constant decisions about eating behavior. And it is easy to push the deeper concerns aside. With the support of a professional, these deeper issues can be addressed as the individual becomes ready to deal with them.
