Counselling for Eating Disorders

Eating disorders affect many people worldwide. Anorexia, bulimia and binge eating are just some of the problems that are increasingly gaining attention on mainstream platforms because of how they take over people’s lives.

The American Psychiatric Association defines eating disorders as “illnesses in which the people experience severe disturbances in their eating behaviors and related thoughts and emotions.People with eating disorders typically become pre-occupied with food and their body weight.”

Affecting mostly women between 12 and 35 years old, eating disorders can affect people from all walks of life. Celebrities like Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato and Jessica Alba have suffered from an eating disorder in the past, but they all worked towards making their lives better by overcoming it.

With the increased pressures of looking good and keeping up with what is perceived to be beautiful, a lot of people tend to put excessive focus on what they eat or don’t eat, how much they should exercise within a day. We at Chettiar Counselling can help you deal with this problem through proper counselling.

Here’s how we can help.

The media has been more influential than ever, painting a picture of what should be ideal through fashion magazines, movies, fashion shows, television and other video-based medium. This false portrayal has caused many people to alter how they look in order to gain approval from others. With the prevalence of social media, more people have a heightened desire to have more attention and be liked.

But this doesn’t have to be the case and we at Chettiar Counselling can help you deal with eating disorders by helping you process your pain with someone who can understand you.

Through therapy, we will help you gain knowledge about your condition, build your coping strategies and foster your healing and personal growth, so you don’t have to go the same route again. Get in touch with us today.
