Eating Disorders and Disordered Eating
Do you assess your self worth in terms of a number on a scale, your body shape or what you eat?
The term disordered eating is used to describe a set of behaviours, feelings and thoughts centred on eating, body image and weight that impact negatively on aspects of a person’s life and those around them. Those suffering from disordered eating will often engage in immoderate, compulsive behaviours that include but are not limited to: under eating and restricting food, habitual dieting and detoxing, over and compulsive eating, purging, laxative abuse and excessive exercising.
There is a common misunderstanding that eating disorders and other eating issues are about food, body weight, moderation or just learning to eat well - here at Byron Private Treatment Centre we understand that the issue runs much deeper than simply food or weight. We recognise disordered eating is a complex and serious issue, often the symptom of a deeper psychological struggle or trauma and serves as a coping mechanism for painful thoughts and feelings. We work at Byron Private to help you to find out what it is that you are really hungry for!
