Eating disorders and disordered eating are very prevalent in our society. There are a variety of treatment approaches, some that work, most that don’t. At The Hull Institute, we believe the biggest barrier to treatment is a lack of willingness and lack of self-confidence that one can actually implement and stick to the plan, one day at a time. Most of our work is focused, especially initially, on staying in the moment and learning and using new skills to get through one day, one minute, one meal at a time.
Talk therapy is great and a critical part of recovery. AND doing is what recovery is all about. We recognize that people are in various stages of readiness for change, so our work is a delicate balance between what the client thinks is the pace she/he wants to go, and what the pace actually needs to be, given the level of “dis-ease”. At The Hull Institute, we work with clients to develop and maintain a sound, holistic recovery plan.
Since eating disorders and other addictions are found in all populations, we treat men, women, children, adolescents, middle aged and older adults.
