Starting Eating disorder therapy

What is eating disorder therapy?

Eating disorder therapy is a specialized approach aimed at assisting those who are grappling with a range of eating disorders. These disorders are significant mental health conditions characterized by irregular or unhealthy eating patterns and an intense focus on body weight and shape. Common conditions addressed in Eating disorder therapy include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, and avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID).

How does eating disorder therapy work?

At Thriveworks, Eating disorder therapy begins with a thorough assessment and personalized treatment plan. Central to eating disorder therapy is psychotherapy, often employing cognitive behavioral therapy and other specialized techniques to target negative thought patterns.

Signs of an eating disorder

The signs of an eating disorder can include:

  • Drastic weight changes
  • Preoccupation with food and body image
  • Binge eating or extreme dieting
  • Excessive exercise
  • Social withdrawal and secrecy around eating
  • Physical and emotional symptoms like fatigue and anxiety

What is the success rate of CBT for eating disorders?

CBT’s remission rate, according to some research, is generally between 50-30% for those seeking assistance for eating disorder symptoms.

What is the recovery rate for people with eating disorders?

The recovery rate for those seeking assistance with eating disorders depends entirely on the individual’s involvement in sessions, the severity of their symptoms, and their willingness to change their eating habits and relationship with food.

Is eating disorder therapy conducted in person or online?

Eating disorder therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does eating disorder therapy last?

The length of Eating disorder therapy will vary from one person to the next, dependent on their specific needs. Your therapist can help to determine what might be most beneficial for you.

Anorexia and Bulimia Counseling in Houston, TX

If you are experiencing symptoms of anorexia, bulimia, or another disorder, you may benefit from working with a mental health professional. Thriveworks Counseling in Houston, TX has eating disorder counselors on our team who can help—simply call or schedule online to get started today.

 Causes of Anorexia and Bulimia

Traumatic events have also been linked to eating disorders, especially those involving experiences that resulted in physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, or even experiences that caused guilt, shame, or loss of confidence.

Your genes can influence your likelihood of developing these disorders as well. If you have one or more than one family member suffering from them, you are more likely to develop the disorders.

Other mental health issues can also influence whether you have anorexia or bulimia. One symptom of depression is the drive to eat more or to totally avoid food. However, it should also be mentioned you can have depression not related to an eating disorder at all.

Symptoms of Eating Disorders

Some of the most common signs of eating disorder issues can include:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Obsessing over body image
  • Obsessing over reaching or maintaining a certain weight
  • Experiencing feelings of guilt or shame after eating
  • Chronic health problems, including dental issues
