Different eating disorders can impact how a person interacts with food daily. Some people may have experience with orthorexia, which is the term to describe an obsession with eating healthy food. Disorders like orthorexia can result in rigid dieting and a fixation on certain food groups. In contrast, some individuals eat compulsively to deal with feelings of guilt. This may lead to gorging habits that only reinforce the initial anxieties, which resulted in the initial compulsion to eat.
Today, eating disorders are associated with both men and women. Issues related to body image may be at the root of an eating disorder, and how we view ourselves is often associated with how we eat food. Psychological counselling helps deal with eating disorders because it looks to identify the root cause of an unhealthy or compulsive habit. Although therapy is not the final answer to dealing with an eating disorder, it is one of the first steps toward building positive behaviours that prevent an eating disorder from becoming uncontrollable.
Eating Disorder Support at Psychology Scotland, Glasgow
Entering the doors of a therapy centre can be an anxious experience, especially if you are seeking help for an eating disorder. It is not uncommon to feel shame or even embarrassment about the prospect of therapy. At Psychology Scotland, we understand how daunting this may be, and so we have created a comfortable environment that is accessible for everyone. One of our major aims as a therapy centre has been to facilitate a professional service that is both friendly and hospitable. It requires a great deal of courage to undertake therapy, and we want to make that step as easy as possible.
The therapeutic interventions offered at Psychology Scotland are empirically supported, and they are delivered with careful consideration with the needs of our clients in mind. Developing the proper coping mechanisms for eating disorders can take time, but our professionally trained therapists can help you begin your journey. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person-Centred Therapy (PCT), and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) are some of the forms of intervention we specialise in. Once you begin working alongside Psychology Scotland, we can help identify the right treatment plan. We want to collaborate with you to help build a better future.
As a result of undertaking psychological services for eating disorders, you will learn to recognise compulsive behaviours, allowing you to manage them easier. Over the course of therapy, your relationship with food will change. As well, how you perceive yourself in comparison to others will improve. Taking that first step toward therapy is the most difficult one, but you do not have to suffer alone any longer. Once enrolled at Psychology Scotland, we will equip you with the right skills that will help you live life with an improved state of mental wellbeing. It may feel impossible at first to open up about eating disorders, but we can help you start making the necessary changes to give you a different outlook on food and your body.
