Accepting you have a problem and wanting to change

Once someone has established that they may have an eating disorder or a a pattern of disordered eating, they must seek support to help them towards recovery.

They must want to change - 'Motivation to Change' (see below) helps to identify what motivation to change is and how, with a lot of determination and hard work, they can regain management over their illness and look forward to a better future.

Assessments may be a very scary thing for some people, but don't worry 'Points to Consider for Your Assessment' (see below) may help you to focus and prepare for that.

To identify the people/organisations you think are best suited to your needs check out 'Patient Log' (see below) and start to keep a record of who, what, where and when.

  • It is vital you know who you are seeing, what is their role?
  • What date did you see them, was your appointment cancelled and why?
  • What are they working towards? What are your aims and goals?
  • What was the outcome of your session?
  • Were there any issues you feel may have been overlooked?

WRITE IT DOWN! - it is simple, will take just a few minutes but may save you hours if you need to recall some of the information regarding your treatment at a later date.

Don't put all your eggs in one basket thinking this 'one' thing will make you better keep options open as you seek support.
