Food and Eating Issues
Many people, both male and female, suffer from issues relating to their relationship with food, often involving excessive or insufficient food intake. This may be in the form of:
- Bulimia and Binge Eating
- Weight Management / Weight Loss
These issues are often maintained by unhealthy belief systems and destructive behavioural patterns. Although there are various contributors to these problems, psychological intervention is considered an important step in overcoming these types of problems, especially as they often exist in association with other emotional issues.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy offers a clear and effective means in which to manage eating related issues, by tackling the important role of thoughts and behaviour which maintain and underpin the way you feel emotionally. Through this process you will be able to gain better control of your reactions to your personal triggers and master skills that can help you feel less vulnerable. Treatment may comprise of conversational and belief change work, direct psychological education, behavioural and homework based tasks. Mindfulness training and Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapy may also be utilised if required.
