Meal Support Therapy

 

Meal Support Therapy

Meal support therapy is an option for those who have food phobias or eating disorders. The IntrinPsych Woman therapist and her patient eat together, addressing and processing the emotional reaction to the experience in real-time. Depending upon the needs of the patient, issues confronted may include:

  • Difficulty ordering from a menu
  • Confronting fear foods
  • Hunger/fullness levels and physiological and emotional responses
  • Fast or slow eating behaviors
  • Urges to restrict, binge or purge before, during or after the meal
  • Fears of eating in public
