Therapy for eating disorders

Do you have problems with food or abnormal eating habits? Have you become obsessed with your weight or body shape? Counseling can give you a chance to control your eating disorder and help you develop a better body image and self-esteem. Seeking help for your eating disorder is a big first step on your recovery journey.

Eating disorders are complicated because they affect people emotionally, physically, and socially. It’s necessary to get professional support to combat them. Psychotherapy is the most important component of eating disorder treatment. It involves seeing a mental health professional on a regular basis. Therapy for eating disorders can help you learn skills and strategies you can implement into your everyday life to address your condition.

Online therapy can be beneficial for people with eating disorders who do not have the option of doing face-to-face sessions. Research revealed that internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy (ICBT) with real-time therapist support is feasible for patients with bulimia nervosa and binge-eating disorder.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the leading evidence-based psychotherapy treatment for eating disorders. It focuses on identifying negative thought patterns and emphasizes the importance of the person making behavioral changes and working on specific tasks between sessions to produce this change.

How does CBT work?
  • It helps you understand current thought patterns and the way they influence behavior.
  • It teaches you how to replace harmful thought patterns with more positive ones.
  • It teaches you how to change your behavior in response to any triggers.
Advantages of CBT
  • Teaches how to manage difficult feelings and emotions using relaxation techniques
  • Helps you gain control of your thoughts and learn to think rationally in difficult situations
  • Can be completed in a relatively short period of time compared to other talk therapies
  • You learn useful practical strategies that can help you cope with future challenges of life

It depends on the nature and severity of your condition and the type of treatment provided. Each person’s experience of psychotherapy will be different, and the time it takes to see an improvement will also vary. Sometimes even slight changes are quite visible, but the majority of clients report feeling better after 3 months of therapy. It takes time for therapy to work because ingrained habits and interpersonal patterns are not quick to change. To benefit from a therapy process, you need to actively engage in the treatment, complete assignments between sessions, and be honest with your counselor when describing symptoms and situations.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

1) Text Therapy. It’s an unlimited messaging therapy that allows having a text session with your therapist anytime. For privacy purposes, all conversations take place in a secure therapy room.


2) Video Therapy. It’s a remote service with the same benefits as traditional in-person therapy, including scheduling appointments with your therapist ahead. The best thing about video therapy is that you don’t have to travel long hours to see the therapist as you can do it from the comfort of your home.


To clients willing to make use of both options, we offer Text & Video Therapy Sessions.
