Help with Eating Disorders in Cape Town
An eating disorder is caused by anxiety and an intense preoccupation with body weight and physical appearance, which leads the affected person to alter their eating habits and digestive processes. We ascribe eating disorders to underlying emotional imbalances that can be remedied through cognitive social and emotional rehabilitation. We work with the deeper emotional issues that underpin eating disorders. Treatment is predominantly based on group therapy.
Eating disorders are not merely simple changes in the eating patterns of affected people. These disorders are underpinned by a very complex range of systems that increase in severity over a period of time.
