Melbourne Eating Disorder Treatment
Mental health is the single-most important factor when it comes to your ability to enjoy life. Those who find themselves struggling with mental health issues often feel alone. Eating disorders can be especially isolating, because they’re often associated with intense feelings of shame and guilt. This keeps people from reaching out and seeking help when they may need it the most.
Our team at Peaceful Mind Psychology takes a special interest in eating disorders. Our eating disorder treatment programs are evidence-based, which means they have been proven to work in a clinical setting. Our psychologists are well trained and experienced in eating disorder therapy, and understand just how complicated life can become with an eating disorder.
Eating Disorders Can be Caused by Many Factors
Eating disorders can arise from multiple sources. Often they start with poor body image and strict dieting. It is not uncommon for people with eating disorders to experience a life issue or difficulty in their relationships prior to becoming unwell. Research also shows that eating disorders are more likely to arise if there is a family history. However, there is no one single cause that explains why an eating disorder develops.
At Peaceful Mind Psychology we are well acquainted with the various factors that contribute to an unhealthy relationship with body image and food. It’s never exactly the same for any two people. However, there is tremendous comfort in knowing that others do feel the same as you. We have helped many clients who suffer from eating difficulties overcome their troubles and get back to living life on their terms.
