What is an eating disorder?
Bulimia Nervosa is characterised by controlling weight gain. People who present for therapy describe many ways of approaching this including induced vomiting, use of laxatives, diuretics, enemas and overexercising.
Bulimia Nervosa tends to be more common in western cultures especially in females. However, it must be noted that this is not a difficulty only experienced by females. It is estimated that 1-2% of the population suffer from Bulimia.

What you need to know
Treatment will involve education around the presenting problem; it will also help to reveal and challenge beliefs around bingeing and body shape.
Therapy will aim to establish an understanding of binge patterns and how they may be related to mood and other stressors.
Therapy will not solely focus on bingeing and weight control methods. We will view the individual holistically and work with any accompanying difficulties such as low mood, irritability, anxiety or low self-esteem.
