Eating disorders : Private treatment

Eating disorders generally fall into three categories:


  • Anorexia – in which people literally starve themselves in the pursuit of losing weight, eating far too little food and developing a distorted view of their actual size

  • Bulimia – in which people gorge themselves on large quantities of food, then make themselves sick, or purge with laxatives in an attempt to avoid the consequences of their binge

  • Binge eating – in which people use food as an emotional crutch, often eating excessively, leading to obesity, which then causes further emotional problems and leads to a destructive spiral of eating behaviour

Most eating disorders have a psychological or emotional root, and need to be treated by eating disorder clinics, using a combination of therapy, counselling, and nutritional advice.

Looking for a support group

In addition to eating disorder help from eating disorder clinics, perhaps a self help or support group would be helpful. Through our sister site Self Help UK, we maintain details of UK groups for people with bulimia, anorexia nervosa or compulsive eating disorders.
