Support with Anorexia in Teenagers and Children

We understand that it is upsetting to find out that your child may have anorexia. If you are concerned that your child or teenager may be suffering from Anorexia or if they have been diagnosed and you are looking for professional support we will be able to help you.

Eating disorders in children and teenagers can be extremely complex and help from specialists who are experienced in this area is essential.

The earlier that anorexia treatment is sought for your child, the more likely they will be to recovery and heal. It is also important to see a Psychiatrist who will be able to properly diagnose anorexia and ensure that there are no other medical reasons behind the weight loss.

Call us on 0203 326 9160 to arrange an initial private consultation with one of our Anorexia specialists.

Signs of and Support for Anorexia in Teenagers and Children

1) Severe and rapid weight loss. Watch out for teenagers who once had a normal weight or perhaps overweight who have become thin very quickly.
2) Binging and purging. Sometimes they may binge and then purge their food – very similar to someone who suffers from Bulimia.
3) Refusal to eat in front of other. Many anorexics dislike eating in front of friends or family – preferring to eat small amounts of food in isolation – so they avoid these situations.
4) Periods have changed. Missing three or more periods in a row can be a sign of anorexia.
5) Exercise. They start exercising frequently and become difficult if they cant.
6) Faddy Eater. They can become very strict about they eat, only eating a very narrow set of foods and become very inflexible about what they eat.
7) Depressed. Often they may have become depressed or withdrawn or perhaps more aggressive.

If you recognise these symptoms in your child call us now on 0203 326 9160 to discuss your situation and to arrange a private consultation with one of our specialists.
