Eating Disorders


Eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder, are usually diagnosed by psychologists or psychiatrists, and involve people having a negative relationship with food and body shape which impacts upon their lives and wellbeing.  Newtown Nutrition has a dietitian with extensive experience in this field, who can help people in the difficult journey to reconnect their well-self with food and eating.

Each person will experience an eating disorder a little bit differently, and each person is a little bit different in terms of what they want to achieve through working with a dietitian.  We work at the level of recovery you are at - whether that be just starting your journey and making small positive changes, or whether you've journeyed far into recovery already and just want help to stay on track and consolidate those achievements.

 

Even if you don't have an eating disorder, you might benefit from speaking to a dietitian experienced in working in this area if you identify with any of the following:

  • you feel like thoughts of food, eating, and weight take up too much of your headspace
  • you get anxious or stressed when thinking about, or eating food
  • you feel like your relationship with food has somehow become distorted or out of control
  • you feel like sometimes you can't stop eating even if you wanted to
  • you feel like sometimes you can't make yourself eat, even though other people say you should

 

How can a dietitian help me with disordered eating?

Depending on what you would like to achieve and your readiness to change, your dietitian might talk to you about:

  • Meal and snack suggestions
  • Managing and breaking the binge eating cycle
  • Understanding the impact of disordered eating on the body and mind
  • Moving towards a healthier weight, if necessary
  • Understanding appetite and intuitive eating
  • Involving family members (where desired and appropriate) to help ensure you are supported in whatever goals you wish to achieve
  • Co-ordinating with your psychologist/psychiatrist, if you have one, to help achieve goals set in those sessions


Our dietitian Clare Marnane has extensive experience supporting clients with disordered eating patterns and with diagnosed Eating Disorders.
