Our relationship with food is often deeply connected with our emotions and painful emotions can often be masked through comfort eating or depriving ourselves of food. If these ways of eating become habits, they can develop into eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia which can affect our lives in many ways. Body dysmorphia (having a distorted body image), which can develop from low self-esteem, can also have an impact on our relationship with food.
Therapy can help you to explore your thoughts and feelings around eating and the reasons for your difficult relationship with it. It can also help you to explore your relationship with yourself and to build your self-esteem, opening up the way to loving and accepting yourself and to developing a healthy relationship with food.
