In recent times we have heard a lot about eating disorders and the devastating effects that they can have on individuals, yet many people still don’t know exactly what an eating disorder is, and what therapy for eating disorders involves. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric condition, and they have an all-encompassing effect on every aspect of someone’s life from breaking down relationships with friends and family, as well as reducing functionality in the workplace/academic environments. At Counseling Works, we believe that Frankfort Eating Disorders Therapy is a compassionate and beneficial collaboration that can guide you to a more positive and healthy body image. We are passionate about developing strategies to assist you to steer away from shame and a negative body image, and more towards self-compassion and self-love.
The National Institute of Mental Health explains that eating disorders are often perceived as a lifestyle choice, however, they are very serious disorders that affect not only an individual’s eating and weight but their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. The most common eating disorders include Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge-Eating Disorder. Most frequently, eating disorders occur during the teenage years, or early adulthood; however, they may also develop in late childhood and later adulthood as well. Often eating disorders are thought of as only affecting women, yet eating disorders can and often affect men as well as men also often struggle with their body image and perception of themselves.
