We know how hard it is for women and men struggling with Binge Eating Disorder or Bulimia to ask for help from either family or professional helpers. That’s why we have developed an online, self-help program that anybody over the age of 18 can purchase and work through, safely and confidentially, in order to begin recovering without fear of being judged.
Clients with Bulimia or Binge-Eating Disorder tend to have a similar personality type. They tend to be perfectionistic, high achieving and think in a very black and white, all or nothing way. Clients also tend to be seen as the ‘strong’ person in their family or social group, the person everyone else turns to with their problems. It is therefore very difficult for them to admit that THEY have a problem, and most clients have an absolute fear or dread of appearing vulnerable or needy to people in their lives.
The online program is media rich, using a combination of Therapist delivered psycho-education, downloadable written exercises, and feedback from our ‘Virtual Group’, which reflects real client feedback in our real groups in Dublin. We believe our online program is an effective and practical first step towards understanding more about your eating disorder, what purpose it serves in your life, and can begin to give you other options.
The program will not ‘cure’ you of your eating disorder, or make it go away, but they will give you some time and space to reflect on how you are currently living your life, and we hope you will begin to see an alternative way of living, without your eating disorder. After that, it’s up to you.
