At The Surrey Centre we offer a service to anyone with a diagnosed eating disorder or who is experiencing any form of disordered eating.
Disordered eating is when your relationship with food is beginning to affect your everyday life but it is not yet severe enough to warrant a formal diagnosis.
People with eating disorders or disordered eating all use or abuse food as a way of managing emotions such as loneliness, sadness, stress, anxiety and fluctuations in mood.
Eating disorders appear in a number of ways; if you find yourself becoming increasingly preoccupied with restricting, controlling your food intake, regularly binge eating or eating more than your body requires then you may have an eating disorder. You may notice some of the following behaviours: avoiding eating in company, throwing food away, hiding food, consuming large amounts of food, becoming anxious when there is either too much or too little food to eat, doing excessive amounts of exercise, or making yourself sick after eating.
- An Eating Disorder is not motivated by attention seeking – no one chooses to have one
- An Eating Disorder can cause serious physical damage
- An Eating Disorder will severely affect your day-to-day life
- An Eating Disorder left untreated will get progressively get worse
- An Eating Disorder can be successfully treated
If your feelings of anxiety are becoming so extreme that they are causing you distress then you may want to seek professional help.
