What is Eating Distress Counselling & Psychotherapy?
Counselling and Psychotherapy can help with psychological causes of food-related problems such as comfort eating, pre-occupation with weight, binge-eating, negative body image and eating disorders such as bulimia, anorexia and binge-eating disorder.
When you enter therapy you will meet with a senior therapist for assessment during which a medical and symptom history is taken. You will be advised on suitable treatment options for you.
Eating distress counselling adopts cognitive behavioural therapy techniques such as goal setting, food diaries and thought monitoring to enable you to gain a greater sense of control over your eating patterns. Where appropriate you will work with your therapist to address the underlying causes of the issue.
Insight Matters works individually and collaboratively with other professionals and treatment centres in the city.
