Anorexia/DiverticulitisSolutions Corner Forum
By Karen Polley
I have a client in her 50's who has been anorexic for most of her life. She also has diverticulitis which flared up earlier this year and has resulted in her anorexia becoming out of control.
She is not body dysmorphic and acknowledges that she is too thin but part of her does not want to put on weight and she counts calories obsessively and exercises compulsively.
I have tried IMR with little success and am intending on doing parts therapy with her as she has said she feels like there are two parts of her which are in conflict.
Any suggestions/experiences of working with similar clients would be greatly appreciated as she is becoming dangerously underweight. She is being monitored by the NHS and is weighed regularly.
