So, there’s a variety of different treatment options available. The most common option is individual treatment so, one-on-one with the psychologist. You can also engage in family work with loved ones, or you can focus the work typically on helping to understand exactly how much you’re taking in and monitor it that way. So, individual treatment typically involves looking at what you’re eating, when you’re eating, how you feel when you do eat certain foods and help you to gain a better understanding of your emotional relationship with your food. So times where you are typically restricting or bingeing and purging trying to understand what was I thinking? What was I feeling at that time? How can I better control my emotions without using food as a way of coping with the difficult experiences you might be having?
