Individual Therapy Program For Anorexia/Bulimia

Individual therapy for people with anorexia or bulimia helps to address symptom change. For patients further along in their journey to recovery, therapy covers motivation, developmental and relationship issues, self-esteem, sexuality and assertiveness.

Program details:

  • Weekly or bi-weekly appointments with a therapist.
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): for symptom reduction, especially binge eating and purging.
  • Motivational Interviewing: for helping people ready themselves for more intensive treatments, or make changes on their own with the skills they already have.
  • Non-specific Supportive Clinical Management (NSCM) of anorexia: long term expert support of individuals with anorexia with a focus on psychoeducation, weight gain and normalizing eating, plus any issues that the client brings to the session.
  • Dialectic Behavioural Therapy (DBT): learning and applying DBT skills to reduce symptoms and build a better life.
