Anorexia Nervosa is an eating disorder where you focus on keeping your weight as low as possible. 

Usually, you have a fear of gaining weight and will do anything to avoid it.

Anorexia can have a serious impact on your body. It
mirrors the effects of starvation. Your hair can fall out, you might find your periods stop, or you feel bloated or constipated, maybe even dizzy and faint.

Some with anorexia believe they’re fat even if they’re at a medically healthy weight or underweight. While others go to extremes to stop gaining weight after eating. There’s no set way to be anorexic. It can affect anyone in multiple ways.

About us image

If you’re struggling with anorexia, you’re not alone.

Anorexia can affect anyone of any age, gender, or background. It’s most common among young women.

Anorexia is not always about food. It’s a mental health condition. Most treatment looks to understand what’s causing the behaviour.

Some people obsess over the idea of controlling what they eat. Whereas others are more image-conscious, with a fear of gaining weight. There’s no one way to be anorexic.

How it works 

If it matters to you, it matters to us

You don’t need to have a full idea of what’s wrong before speaking to us. If something is bothering you, or your symptoms are affecting your life, then we can help.

Our GPs look beyond your symptoms to address the full picture of your health. If you need help, we’re here to listen – no matter what you’re feeling.

"I was in agony. I wanted to eat, but I was crippled by fear of looking in the mirror.”

Sharon’s anorexia started when she was in her teens. She hid it from her friends and family at the time. But once she hit her 20s, it was difficult to juggle everything in life. University studies, social life, it all took a backseat to her eating disorder. She became obsessed with everything she put into her body.

She binned 'fatty' foods. And she started skipping social outings that involved eating. When alone, she would jot down her calorie intake for the day to work out how she could lose more weight without people knowing.

When Sharon’s energy levels started to dwindle, and her university work started piling up, she knew things had got out of control. Her family asked her to get help, and she contacted us. Our GPs worked with Sharon to help understand her relationship with food and aid her recovery.

Why would I see a GP
for my mental health?

Our GPs look beyond your mind to assess a complete, overall picture of your health. That includes looking at physical problems arising from their mental health concerns or mental health issues arising from physical problems. As well as environmental factors that contribute to how you're feeling in 40-minute appointments.

Our GPs train with mental health specialists to improve the way we evaluate patients. With their many years of experience, they're well equipped to look after your mental health concerns. Each doctor can put together individualised plans and goals to improve your overall wellbeing.

With the help of our GPs, you’ll be shown how to deal with your health concerns; understand what you can control, and what you can’t. It’s a full-bodied approach to care.

It’s estimated that 3.4 million people in the UK are affected by an eating disorder

With our plans, you can speak to a GP about your mental health concerns, no matter what they may be.
