Kate Heavey BA (Hons) FdSc BACP (Accredited) - Food addiction? Food misuse? Binge Eating? For individuals and couples impacted by binge eating in their relationships. Online binge eating addiction counselling offered via Zoom, Signal, WhatsApp and the phone.
The aim of this page is to provide you with information and support if you are currently experiencing binge eating disorder (BED) and you feel that it is out of control and want to recover and start to manage your relationship with food.
Working with BED is slightly different to working with other addictions in that, although we work with identifying the root cause, you can not completely abstain as you need to eat to live.
The reason you are binge eating is probably due to, at some point in your life, it becoming a coping mechanism and it has kept you alive. You may have needed it to feel in control; to block out disturbing thoughts or feelings; to change the way you feel or to take your mind off what was happening around you. Chances are you now find yourself here as it is causing you more unpleasant feelings such as distress, guilt and shame.
The National Institute of Mental Health reports that BED is the most common type of eating disorder and, of those with the condition, only about 30 percent will seek treatment! So if you are here now, take action and be one of the 30% who seeks therapy and recovers; together lets work on getting you the life you want.
The chances are that you will have had an unhealthy relationship with food since your early years, or you would have learnt to have an unhealthy relationship with food due to what was modelled to you.
We will explore all of this, plus more, so you can recover.
