Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Self Help Course

The Kildare Street Clinic in collaboration with experienced professionals in the field, has developed a Self-Help / CBT online treatment program for Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorders.

Overcome your Eating Disorder for EVER!

Food — has it taken over your life? are you obsessed with it? Is it occupying your mind 24/7? You can’t live with it, and you can’t live without it. Food can feel like an addiction with no sense of control of your life. Why has food come to occupy this “uncontrollable” role in your life? How can you plot out a course for yourself that enables you to enjoy life again. In your clear moments, you realize you don’t even want to eat those things and it can lead you to want to purge or completely avoid it altogether.

The KSC Self help programme can help you to start making healthy choices and get back control of your life.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) has been shown to be an effective treatment for Bulimia Nervosa (BN) and Binge Eating Disorder and has been recommended as the psychological treatment of choice for these disorders.

As reported in the 2017 guidelines by The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) :

People with eating disorders benefit from specialist CBT and self-help programmes”.

Take control of your eating!

Cognitive behaviour therapy is based on the idea that behaviour, thoughts and feelings are learned, and can therefore be unlearned, or modified.

It is very much a problem-solving approach. Goals are set in behavioural terms and potential solutions are tested out in practice:

When you are doing the Self Help Programme you are taught to become your own therapist and you will be prepared to deal with recovery, relapse and any issues that arise in the future. The programme is practical, behavioural and educational and works on your core beliefs and underlying assumptions.  These are, on the one hand, the subject of eating and weight and, on the other hand, the more general psychological functioning including themes such as self-esteem and confidence, interpersonal and family issues.
