Sarah Dosanjh

Did you know that binge eating disorder is more common than both anorexia and bulimia? In my experience I have also found it to be the most misunderstood. Binge eating is not about a lack of willpower or discipline; it is a distressing experience where you find yourself having uncontrollable bouts of eating. Having recovered from binge eating myself, my mission is to reach those who are still suffering; those who feel like no one else understands or 'gets it'. If you binge eat, your struggle with food is as valid as any other kind of disordered eating. The frustrating thing about bingeing is that it may seem the harder you try to stop, the worse it seems to get. It doesn't make sense, does it? Why do you keep engaging with this behaviour even though you know you want to stop?

I work online offering one-to-one sessions, therapy groups, workshops and support meetings for binge eating recovery. I believe connecting with others who can relate to your experience is enormously helpful when embarking on this journey of healing your relationship with food and body.
