No-one wants to admit to using food to fix how they feel, but ignoring it wont make it go away – in fact it might just let it get worse. The sooner you take action and seek help the better the outcome. Usually families are aware of the problem too, but just don’t know what to do to help, so we need to help everyone involved.
So how do you even decide if somebody is in trouble with their behaviours around food, as maybe its just a stage some is going through? Dieting and faddy eating habits have become such an accepted part of western social culture as has overeating on sweet and starchy foods as a form of comfort. But for some people it isn’t a one off, for some its a way of life, a way of controlling how you feel. These are the people we can help.
At CHARTER we take a simple approach – if you are using food to avoid or cope with how you feel, then usually the problems get worse and the eating habits become compulsive, and the sooner this is addressed the better. The reality is that in the vast majority of cases, the problem is not going to go away on its own; in fact, any dependence of this kind usually worsens over time. Experience tells us that the sooner we can begin to support the sufferer, the sooner they will begin to feel better. It really is that simple.
If you are caring for somebody with an eating disorder, you will at best be walking on eggshells. We believe that you need support too, so we offer help and care for all those in the family, in a compassionate, caring and non-intrusive way, sometimes even before the person with eating issues asks for help themselves.
If you need help then get in touch now. We offer a FREE initial assessment with one of our trained therapists who will work with you to decide what help is needed and devise a plan of treatment that works for you and which could include our intensive day treatment programme, workshops, one-to-one counselling and group therapies. We also offer aftercare support and a range of very successful workshops.
