Make peace with food and recover from your eating disorder

Do you feel anxious at the thought of eating more food? Does eating an extra snack cause you to panic?

Do you wake up thinking about how to eat as little as possible and go through your day tracking your intake and feeling obssessed with food? Maybe you go to bed counting up what you ate and working out how to make up for it tomorrow.

Are you cold all the time, low in mood, energy and lacking your period? Lacking concentration to do your daily tasks?

Do you know your relationship with food is not right but feel unsure how to fix it.

Are you worried that your family member is not eating properly and know they need specialist support.

Most of us struggle with our relationship with food and our bodies at some stage of life. This could be due to a traumatic event in life or a life change. Or perhaps the world around you tells you that being thin is beautiful and you are shown body perfect images, it can be hard to ignore it. Maybe social media shows you pictures of perfect diets or you read that eating processed foods is bad. You might try the latest fitness craze, want a healthier body or turn to food for comfort. Sadly eating disorders are a lot more common that you would think and they can take over your mind and life.


My passion for this work has come partly from my own struggles. As a teen I struggled with my own body image and eating. Skipping meals, feeling hungry all the time and over-exercise was my coping mechanism. Why am I sharing this? Because I get it and I want to help. I believe that you can get to a place where you can appreciate your body and enjoy all foods. A life recovered is a life full of joy and multicolour.


Testimonials

“Priya, has been the most kind, compassionate dietitian I have ever worked with”

“This time last year I starved myself on my birthday. Today I ate birthday cake for the first time in 4 years.”

“I just wanted to message to thank you so much for our session yesterday. My husband afterwards he said he had felt like crying at times. We both felt so reassured by your professionalism and understanding of this difficult horrible disease. We have had such a negative experience so far with the people who are in charge of helping us so it was brilliant to feel some hope after talking to you.”

 “She is now well, eats all foods without judgement and is back enjoying life, thanks to you”


“I feel like you understand it and are very slowly and gently trying to get me to move forwards
each time I see you.”

FAQ’s

What do we cover in sessions?

After years of experience, working with so many wonderful clients, I know that everyone is different. Recovery needs to be individualised for you and your needs. That’s why each session is tailored exactly for you in a very holistic way. As an expert eating disorder dietitian I assess where you are in your journey and work with you on the areas you either need to work on or are ready to work on. Recovery is not easy and it really does need specialist support, including your dietitian, therapist and doctor as a minimum. Sessions include: education on nutrition, the body, metabolism for starters. We cover some psychological work around food and your body and help you work on motivation too. We may include some breath work and grounding for your nervous system and we also help you work on food fears and challenges, when you are ready. At later stages we work on maintenance, mindful movement (aka exercise for the right reasons) and intuitive eating.

Is there support between sessions?

Some clients will be offered support via an app and we offer email support too. This will be agreed in your session.

How many sessions will I need?

This depends on where you are in your recovery journey and who else you are working with. Some people make great progress in 4 sessions and others will work with us for a year. If you have never had a dietitian work with you and you know that you are going to need plenty of support, then I recommend the intensive package.

Am I sick enough for help? I’ve been told I’m not low enough weight.

Yes everyone deserves help at any stage of this journey and we want to help you. Getting help earlier on is far better for your long term health so please do not wait to get sicker. Please do reach out wherever you are at and let’s have a chat. Some eating disorder services have criteria they need to stick to before they can offer support. As a private practice we do not have that same criteria and can offer help at almost any stage.

If you are too unwell then we will need to be under a medical team but can work with you when you are more stable.

As a specialist eating disorder dietitian (anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder), I have over 15 years experience helping people recover, which means I know full well how hard it is. For me, a holistic approach is key, not just looking at nutrition in isolation but look at the rest of life too.  If you need help getting your eating back on track I am here to help with education, meal planning, practical help, support and an understanding ear.
