What is Anorexia?
Anorexia is an eating disorder characterised by an abnormally low body weight, an intense fear of gaining weight and a distorted perception of weight. A lot of focus and attention is placed on weight and shape and it is typical for it to begin to affect everyday life and relationships.
Anorexia can affect both adults and teenagers alike. It often begins innocently with a desire to cut out sugar or “eat clean”, but can quickly take over and be hard to control. Anorexia can involve food restriction or be in combination with like bingeing or excessive exercise.
Common things that loved ones may see:
- More social withdrawal
- Agitation or mood swings
- Baggy clothes being worn
- Food cut up into small pieces
- Aversion to many foods
- Lack of energy
- Lack of interest in normal everyday activities
- Poor concentration
- Parents/loved ones know something is going on, but don’t want to admit it as they keep hoping that things will change.
Are you worried that someone that you love might suffer from Anorexia?
I know how distressing this journey can be and I am here to support you and your family and help you work together towards the best possible outcome.
Over my career, I’ve focused on getting the right training to be able to support families and help individuals cope with and recover from Anorexia. I have hands-on experience helping both teenagers and adults turn their condition around and take control of their health.
Anorexia is treatable, and early detection can make the recovery process easier. Treatment is not just about learning to eat; it’s a long journey and requires the support and education of loved ones.
The journey usually starts with an assessment to ensure that I am the correct person to help you. If between us we decide that we can have a good therapeutic alliance and I feel it is safe to do so, we will then outline a program plan to work towards recovery. It may include the support of your GP, to unravel the behaviours of Anorexia and help you find a path back to a happier and healthier life.
Our journey together starts here. Complete this quick questionnaire for me to do a preassessment. Once I’ve received your information I’ll be in touch to discuss how I can help.
