As a counsellor with over 20 years of experience specializing in the field of emotional eating, binging and eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder, as well as depression, anxiety and trauma, I have come to identify three key areas that need to be attended to in order for clients to answer the question: Why do I binge? or Why do I restrict? and to find a lasting solution to their stresses with food, weight and body image. These three areas are:
- Your relationship with food
- Your relationship with yourself
- Your relationships with others.
