Eating disorders

It's not just the amount of food you eat - or don't eat - that can cause problems. In other words, size is simply not the issue. The seductive myth that slimness equals happiness is possibly one of the most destructive of our age and has caused misery for countless people.

A difficult relationship with food is often the result of persistent negative thought patterns such as self loathing, fear and anxiety. In other words, it can be the outward symptom rather than the cause of unhappiness. It's so tempting to think that if only we could achieve our perfect weight, we would have the lives we dream of. However, media photographs of thin, miserable celebrities prove time and again that this is not the case.
