WE JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW....
* We won't fall asleep on you during appointments;
* We won't judge you by how much you eat/don't eat;
* We won't weight you/ask your weight (unless you want this as part of treatment);
* We won't tell you others have it worse than you; and
* We certainly won't tell you to 'just eat' or 'pull your socks up'
Unfortunately, some of our clients have had these happen to them with other support/services. Can you believe that?! We don't do that. We are here to listen and support you.
You might be thinking, 'well that's good to hear, but do I REALLY have a problem with food?'
We get many emails asking, 'I have a difficult relationship with food at times, but I am not (overweight/underweight/exercising X amount/not being sick more than X times a week/fill in the blank), does that mean I can't seek help or come to therapy or counselling?'
As far as we are concerned at Talking EDs, if someone says that they have difficulties with food and eating and that it affects their life in some way, then they may have an eating disorder or a form of disordered eating and need help and support.
We won't slap a label on you though (unless, of course, you find it useful to have a name for what you are experiencing) as we work with everyone individually. We are interested in you and how things are for you - not lists of un-representative criteria from textbooks.
Talking with psychotherapists and counsellors who actually understand too is a bonus!
