Welcome to Essex eating disorders and obesity services
Thank you for taking the time to visit us today. We all have a relationship with food, and we cannot escape that. For many, dining in restaurants, a picnic in the park or sweets at the cinema are social occasions to look forward to. Food is there when we want to celebrate something and also find comfort in times of hardship and sadness.
We have all shared chocolates or a glass of wine after a stressful or sad event. This is normal. However for some, it can go further than this. Food serves a different purpose. It serves to mask and distract from life and relationship problems.
When emotions can no longer be tolerated, food can fill that void whether it be by overeating, bingeing, restricting, purging or other forms of control. If this sounds like you or somebody you know, we hope that you will find some useful information in these pages.
If you need any further help or wish to book an appointment, please fill in our contact form.
