Get Effective Treatment for an Eating Disorder

Eating disorders are a serious and distressing mental illness that affects approximately 9% of the population. While that figure may seem small, at Person Centred Psychology we do not take it lightly. Eating disorders such as bulimia, binge eating or anorexia nervosa affect so many Australians, and professional treatment is a proven method to help sufferers find a way out.

This is why it’s important that you find professional treatment from psychologists who understand and have experience treating eating disorders. Proper treatment is important to combat such an illness as binge eating, anorexia or bulimia.

Symptoms can include excessive dieting, restricting calories, binge eating, purging, and excessive exercise. Common eating disorders include Anorexia, Bulimia, and Binge Eating Disorder as well as many people who have significantly disordered eating but don’t fit into any of these boxes.

Disordered eating has a serious impact on a sufferer’s emotional and physical wellbeing, and men and women who experience an eating disorder often experience high levels of anxiety, depression, guilt, shame, and self-loathing. These emotions, coupled with uncertainty about change can make it very difficult to ask for help. Our Melbourne St Kilda Rd team includes psychologists who have experience and expertise in counselling helping people address their eating disorder through in clinic sessions, and will walk beside you on your path to recovery and taking back control of your life.
