Are You a 'Binge Eater'?

Emma Murphy MIACP - Psychotherapist and Emotional/Binge Eating Specialist

What is binge eating, and why does it happen?

  • Binge Eating feels like an out of body or out of control experience.
  • Binge eating usually involves eating very quickly, often in secret.
  • Eating in the car, the bathroom or standing in the kitchen are common.
  • Binge eating goes way past feeling full, to feeling uncomfortable and bloated. 
  • Binge eating results in feeling very ashamed, guilty and angry afterwards.
  • It’s common to have had some sort of upsetting, difficult or traumatic event in the past. This is often when you learned how to ‘self-soothe’ with food.
  • Low mood, high anxiety, weight gain and/or gut issues will almost always be present.

I learned to be kind to myself. I wouldn’t say the things that I say to myself after a binge, to my friend if she was going through the same thing.
