Are you struggling with anorexia?

What is an Anorexia?

Anorexia Nervosa is characterised as individuals that have “a significant and persistent reduction in food intake leading to extremely low body weight; a relentless pursuit of thinness; a distortion of body image and intense fear of gaining weight; and extremely disturbed eating behaviour.

Anorexia is usually treated with talking therapies, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

You are missing meals, eating very little or avoiding eating any foods you see as fattening
You cannot identify what a healthy figure for yourself looks like

It was clear that she listened intently to me as she was always able to go back to scenarios and issues we had previously discussed and help draw similarities between those and the present related feelings. My therapist helped me understand myself a little better and where sometimes my reactions and thought process came from.

The Onebright difference

What you need to know

It can be difficult for people with anorexia to recognise that they have a mental health condition. Because it’s hard for them to get out of the habits they’ve developed as a result of anorexia, recovery can take some time.
Most people with anorexia respond to treatment, and the earlier it begins, the better the chances of a complete recovery. Treatment for anorexia usually involves talking therapies, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), which aim to change the person’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviour around food. Nutritional support is also offered to help them gain weight safely.
