Unfortunately, it’s very common for people struggling with an eating disorder to refuse help or never even to ask for it, often resulting in lasting damage or even death. If you or a loved one is suffering from anorexia, bulimia, or binge eating disorder, it’s important to get help right away. Christian counseling for eating disorders offers a combination of time-tested treatment methods, Bible-based wisdom, and prayer for a comprehensive approach to recovery.
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – This is a proven method for treating eating disorders. It brings awareness to people who talk to themselves negatively, builds up positive self-image, and will help you identify the behaviors that are contributing to the disorder. This therapy will help you find a new perspective and will cause you to start practicing healthy habits and eliminate harmful ones.
Family Therapy – Families will be able to understand their loved ones’ struggles and offer the right support through Christian counseling for families. Through this method, everyone gets the necessary help while accompanying you on your journey of recovery.
Counseling for Depression – Besides struggling with an eating disorder, almost 50% of those suffering from eating disorders also experience depression. Although depression hits everyone differently, Christian counseling for depression playsavital part in the treatment process.
