Eating Disorder Therapy

If you have an eating disorder, food isn’t simply a fuel but becomes much more symbolic than that. There are many patterns of disordered eating, some of which are more clinically recognised than others.

Many sufferers have poor self-esteem and often do the things they do to their bodies as a way to gain control over an aspect of their lives. If you suspect you have an eating disorder, see a therapist.
