Why Choose A Counselor For Overeating?

When it comes to overeating, looking to an overeating counselor is not something that most people think about for a solution. Instead, they just beat themselves up by telling themselves they are not good enough, lazy and lack willpower. So, they hit the diet scene with gusto. They hire a personal trainer or spend hundreds of dollars on a pill to take away their appetite. The problem is that all of these things do not address the emotional component of overeating. How many times have you tried to address the problem of overeating with diet and exercise? How many times have you walked away feeling like a failure? How many times have you told yourself that you just needed to try harder next time? How many times have you repeated this cycle over and over? This is why I would encourage you to find a counselor who specializes in overeating. A counselor will help you get to the root of the overeating problem instead of just giving you a band-aid solution that will lead you into a cycle of shame when the plan doesn’t work out, again. By getting to the root of the overeating, you will actually find a solution. I think there is a lot of fear and shame around the decision to look at counseling for overeating instead of going on yet another diet and exercise program. Many people are afraid of what it might uncover, what other people might think or that the journey will be too difficult. The reality is, you are living every day with whatever it is that you are trying to avoid. Why not just address it now, so you don’t have to avoid it for another 10, 20 or 40 years? Make peace with food. We can teach you how! Our counselors are experts at treating overeating. We can help you develop the skills and tools you need to heal your relationship with food and avoid this trap of self-sabotage. Give us a call today to learn more about an overeating counselor!
