Hello,

I got diagnosed with binge eating disorder through the week, something I knew I had but was scary to finally get an official diagnosis. I’m really wanting to start my road to recovery as soon as I can but due to the current situation services have been suspended. I’ve been referred to a dietician and therapist

i was looking to get help privately but can any counsellor help? Or do I need to get a special one specifically for this?

Also, if you have any hints and tips on recovery I’d really appreciate it.

Thanks

Definitely find one with experience with it. If they say they have experience, ask them in what capacity. Don't waste your time with others.

Thank you both so much, really appreciate it. Will do my research tonight and hopefully get something sorted until the NHS services resume :)

The best thing that you could develop is a support group for this - whether it be your friends, or family, or a therapist / counselor. I would absolutely consider giving it a shot and seeing how it goes. A dietitian will assess your eating happens and get you on a new eating plan with an attempt to help you understand your relationship with food, when to eat, what to eat. On the side, your counsoler or therapist will be directed to your mental and emotional states - trying to help you figure out why you eat like this, what triggers it and what you can do to distract yourself and direct your attention to other things / feelings and avoid eating.

I always say give it a shot, does hurt to try~
The hard part is finding a therapist you enjoy and trust ~ The rest is just talking about yourself! :p
