Anorexia Help, Advice and Counselling
Anorexia thrives around the shame which holds its victims trapped within their illness. Those suffering with anorexia often drift between wanting help, thinking that things ‘aren’t that serious’ and not thinking that there is a problem at all.
We provide counselling for anorexia sufferers and their families, and we know that when someone with an eating disorder asks for support, we need to act fast and not miss what is often a small window of opportunity to help. For eating disorders are aggressive and sufferers need treatment as early as possible. If you are suffering with anorexia, or know someone who is, you can talk to a therapist today who will gently guide you through all of the available options.

Our team of specialists will be able to offer you advice and guide you toward all of the available treatment for eating disorders. Eating disorder treatment may be outpatient services, anorexia counselling services or eating disorder clinics. Our counsellors will be able to tell you which option will be the most appropriate.
What is anorexia?
Anorexia is a serious and potentially life threatening illness. The illness is manifested by obsessive thoughts about weight and appearance and compulsive behaviours around food. There are two ‘sub-types’ of anorexia: restricting and binge/purging.
Restricting anorexia: Someone suffering with this type of anorexia will generally restrict their food intake and frequently over-exercise in order to maintain a low weight.
Binge/purge type anorexia: sufferers will also restrict their food but will also binge on foods and induce vomiting. Symptoms vary between patients and some may have a mix of symptoms.
Anorexia is generally associated with people who have low self-esteem and feelings of self-loathing. It can often manifest itself in high achieving individuals who have an obsessive desire to seek and achieve perfection.
Our team of specialists are skilled in working with and counselling people suffering with anorexia and are often able to bridge a relationship with them to help take those first steps toward treatment.
