The human race’s relationship with food is a complex one. Naturally, eating is essential for our survival but, for some, it is difficult to achieve the correct balance in terms of what they consume. In some cases, this can manifest itself as an eating disorder such as bulimia nervosa where a pattern of binge-eating followed by self-induced vomiting develops around a fear of weight-gain. Pressure to look slim and images of supposedly perfect bodies are omnipresent in modern society and this can also be a factor in the prevalence of the disease, which may have serious long-term health effects. But, rest assured, you’re in good hands. Our experts are very skilled at identifying and treating the disease, having successfully done so on many occasions. Most clients make a full recovery and learn to develop a healthy relationship with food for the rest of their lives.

Bulimia is all about someone developing a problematic relationship with food in order to control weight. Rather than not eating at all, it is a cycle of behaviour where one binge eats and then forcibly makes themselves vomit to keep weight off.

The toll on the body can actually be quite devastating. Many sufferers risk developing gastroparesis, tooth decay and self-harming. Some may withdraw from their social lives and turn to alcohol or drugs as an emotional crutch. Anxiety, mood disorders and neuroses can also walk hand in hand alongside the disorder.

If this is registering with you, then be assured that bulimia can be quite common, with surveys indicating that between 1.1% to 4.6% of women and 0.1% to 0.5% of men will develop symptoms sometime in their lives. So, do not despair, we have seen many such cases and our professional help is just one step away.
