Media reports on eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia nervosa often put a disproportionate amount of focus on the external behaviours that characterise the disorder – namely, behaviours that involve food, weight, and shape. While these three factors cause a significant amount of distress to sufferers of eating disorders, what is often not discussed are the psychological factors that set up and maintain the sufferer’s dependence on such behaviours. Dealing with this voice is vital for anorexia recovery.
Our Managing Directors, Sarah and Lydia, discuss one particularly damaging aspect of eating disorders: The Eating Disorders Voice. This is their latest clip describing what the ‘voice’ is like inside the mind of many sufferers, and how you too can challenge this ‘voice.’
