How Can Therapy Help With An Eating Disorder?

Therapy can be an effective treatment for eating disorders. It can help a person identify triggers and underlying causes, learn healthy coping skills, develop a better relationship with food and the body, challenge negative beliefs about the body, and increase self-esteem. With early treatment, therapy can improve the chances of full recovery.

At Supporting Wellness, our therapists will help you discover your underlying challenges, and help develop healthy ways to overcome them.

What Types Of Eating Disorders Are There?

A variety of eating disorders exist, including:

Anorexia nervosa: This condition is characterized by an intense fear of gaining weight, prompting extreme limitation of food intake and extremely low body weight.

Bulimia nervosa is identified as a disorder that involves frequent episodes of indulgent eating followed by attempts to reverse the effects, such as inducing vomiting, utilizing laxatives or diuretics, or partaking in extreme exercises. All of this is done in an attempt to avoid gaining weight.

Binge Eating is a disorder distinguished by recurring episodes of binge eating, during this time a person consumes too much food in a short amount of time. This often leads to the person becoming uncomfortably full, and often brings a feeling of guilt or shame.

OSFED: This is a group for feedings and eating disorders that do not meet all the prerequisites of anorexia, bulimia, or binge eating disorder, but still lead to substantial worry or disability.: This is a group of eating disorders that do not meet all the prerequisites of anorexia, bulimia, or binge eating disorder, but still lead to substantial worry or disability.

Avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID): is defined as a marked decrease in food intake or an inability to meet nutritional and energy needs, often stemming from a distaste for certain types of food. This disorder can also be the reason why children fail to gain or lose weight.
