  • Negative or distorted self image
  • Excessive exercise
  • Flat mood / lack of emotion
  • Abdominal pain
  • Low blood pressure

  • Feeling out of control
  • Constant dieting or fasting

There are three primary types of eating disorders that people commonly deal
with: Anorexia Nervosa, Exercise Nervosa and Bulimia. These disorders stem
from a need for control and low self-image/esteem. People suffering from
eating disorders often feel that the key to their happiness is centered in
being “thin”. If only they can loose those few pounds or inches
they will then be happy and successful. Unfortunately no matter how much
weight they loose the feeling of contentment never materializes.

Eating disorders often involve low self esteem and self consciousness. A
negative running commentary plays in their heads telling them “they
aren’t beautiful, will never fit in, everyone is judging them, and/or
nothing they do is good enough”. Even when someone takes the
essential step of admitting they have a problem and that many of their long
held beliefs about themselves aren’t true it is still very difficult
to break such long standing habits.

Noyau Wellness and Counseling Center works with clients to develop a
healthier more accurate self image then teaches how to maintain their new
found esteem and prevent relapses. A combination of psychotherapy,
nutritional planning and self care techniques work to help clients finally
experience the success, confidence and fulfillment they have been searching
for.
