Eating disorders

 
Anorexia

Anorexia sufferers starve themselves, and have a terror of gaining weight. Sufferers frequently have a distorted perception of their shape and weight (dysmorphia) and will continue to think they are overweight even after they become extremely thin, and are very ill or near death.

Bulimia

Bulimia is a serious eating disorder, which involves the misuse of food to try to resolve emotional difficulties. The major symptoms are binge eating followed by self-induced vomiting or "purging". It is also quite common for a bulimic to abuse laxatives and diuretics. Purging may occur several times a day, often after each meal.

Overeating

Compulsive overeating is a disease of addiction manifested in an obsessive, compulsive relationship with food. The sufferer uses food as a means of trying to suppress or control uncomfortable feelings. He or she may often (but not always) overeat starchy and/or sugary foods that create a 'sugar high' to try to escape difficult emotions. This binge eating is usually followed by intense feelings of guilt and remorse, but unlike victims of bulimia, compulsive overeaters do not always attempt to purge their food by vomiting or using laxatives.

Sometimes the challenges of tackling personal difficulties with food extend beyond nutritional management and support. Where clients have serious difficulties with their eating patterns, and are suffering from harmful disorders such as bulimia, anorexia or compulsive overeating, it can be important to seek further help with the emotional and psychological aspects of these conditions.

Tina works as the nutrition advisor to Charter Harley Street, a specialist clinic based in Harley Street in Central London offering counselling and treatment services to clients suffering from eating disorders and addiction problems such as substance misuse and alcoholism, as well as individual and couples/family therapy. Tina can provide you with an introduction to Charter where you will be able to book an assessment to discuss your situation in complete confidence and be advised on your best options for any further treatment.
