Serving Kitchener-Waterloo, Anchoridge Counselling wants to support you with any eating condition you may be suffering from.
Eating disorders generally occur because people develop complicated relationships with food or their bodies. They may try to control their bodies through exercise, medicine, or diets. Others may use food to soothe painful feelings.
The most common eating disorders include; binge eating, bulimia nervosa, anorexia nervosa, restrictive food intake, pica, and rumination.
Not all eating and food issues fall into the six categories above. If a behaviour causes distress and interferes with daily life, it can still qualify as an eating issue. One doesn’t need a diagnosis to have a problem. Many people can diet in a way that does not hurt their bodies. Some try to lose weight by reducing calories or avoiding certain foods. Others diet to manage their food allergies or cleanse their bodies. But if they take a diet too far, it can backfire and damage their health.
