If you’re struggling with an eating disorder, counselling can be a helpful way to explore the emotions and behaviours that are driving your disorder. At Dr Jo Gee & Associates, we can help you with that and more. Counselling can help people experiencing any type of eating disorder, including binge eating disorder, issues with gaining weight and anorexia nervosa.

Eating disorders counselling can help you to understand why you’re struggling and give you tools to cope with your disorder. Today, we’ll explore what eating disorders counselling is, how it can help you, and what you can expect from counselling sessions.

What is Eating Disorders Counselling?

Eating disorders counselling is a type of therapy that helps people with eating disorders to address their disordered eating behaviours and thoughts, as well as any related emotional and psychological issues.

Counselling can help people with eating disorders to:

  • Better understand their condition and why they may be experiencing it. Understanding your body shape issues and eating habits is an important place to start.
  • Develop healthy coping mechanisms for dealing with difficult feelings. That’s something cognitive behavioural therapy can really help with.
  • Identify and change any negative thoughts and beliefs about themselves, food, and their bodies. Your physical and mental health both matter where eating disorders are concerned.
  • Develop a positive relationship with food and their body shape. When you struggle with your relationship with food, it can be difficult to address it without support.
  • Manage any underlying mental health conditions (such as anxiety or depression) that may be contributing to their eating disorder.
  • Build a support network of family and friends who can provide understanding and encouragement. The sessions can incorporate elements of family therapy, for example.

Eating disorders counselling can be an important part of treatment for many people, helping them to make lasting changes in their lives. If that’s something you think you’d benefit from and you want to explore it further, you can get in touch with us here at Dr Jo Gee & Associates today.

How Can Eating Disorders Counselling Help You

Eating disorders counselling can provide you with the support you need to get past your eating disorder and establish healthier eating habits. Your counsellor will work with you to understand the root cause of your disorder and help you develop healthy coping mechanisms. They will also provide you with practical advice on how to manage your food intake and avoid triggering situations.

What Will Eating Disorders Counselling Sessions Involve?

Eating disorders counselling sessions typically last for one hour and are usually held weekly. During each session, you will have the opportunity to discuss any concerns or issues you are having in relation to your eating disorder. Your counsellor will also provide you with support and guidance as you work towards recovery.

There are different types of therapy, so what they involve will depend on the type of therapy you receive. But that’s something that you’ll be able to discuss with your therapist. One of the most common types of therapy used to address eating disorders is cognitive behavioural therapy. Family therapy is also often used as part of the overall approach.

What Should You Expect from Eating Disorders Counselling?

The goal of eating disorders counselling is to help you overcome your disorder and develop a healthy relationship with food. With the help of a counsellor, you can learn to cope with difficult emotions, manage your food intake, and maintain a healthy weight.

Eating disorders counselling can be very beneficial for those struggling with an eating disorder such as binge eating disorder or anorexia nervosa. It can help them to understand the root cause of their disorder and develop healthy coping mechanisms. An eating disorder counsellor can also provide support and guidance throughout the recovery process. If you are considering seeking counselling for your eating disorder, it is important to know what to expect from the sessions.

Eating disorders counselling usually involves discussing your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours around food and body image. The goal is to help you develop a more positive relationship with food and your body. Counselling can be an incredibly powerful tool in recovering from an eating disorder. If you are ready to take steps towards recovery, consider seeking out a qualified counsellor who can help you on your journey.
