At The Surrey Centre we offer a service to both women and men who have a diagnosed eating disorder or who are experiencing any form of disordered eating.
Disordered eating is when your relationship with food is beginning to affect your everyday life but it is not yet severe enough to warrant a formal diagnosis of an eating disorder.
People with eating disorders or disordered eating all use or abuse food as a way of managing emotions such as loneliness, sadness, stress, anxiety and fluctuations in mood.
Eating disorders appear in a number of ways; if you find yourself becoming more and more preoccupied with restricting, controlling food intake and/or regularly binge eating or eating more than your body requires, you may have an eating disorder. You may notice some of the following behaviours: avoiding eating in company, throwing food away, hiding food, consuming large amounts of food, becoming anxious when there is either too much or too little food to eat, doing excessive amounts of exercise, or making yourself sick after eating.
