Treating an eating disorder is complex because of numerous individual, social, genetic and family-related factors that can influence the a person’s vulnerability to the illness. Many consequences, physical as well as emotional, can arise after the disordered eating begins. What’s more, eating disorders can be accompanied by one or more other problems, such as anxiety, mood disorders, or personality disorders, that act in tandem with the eating disorder and complicate the recovery process.
Taking these complications into account, ANEB believes it is important to recommend professionals specialised in eating disorder treatment. The organisation has established clear, defined guidelines for professional references. The following criteria are only guidelines; each request is checked by ANEB, who reserves the right to refuse to add someone to a list of references.
Finally, it’s important to keep in mind that the choice of a professional is at the discretion of the person in need. We recommend that a phone conversation take place between the client and the professional in order to validate the professional’s specialization, the help that can be offered, costs (if applicable) as well as any other information providing insight into the type of treatment proposed.
*Please note that at all times, requests to be added to the list are evaluated individually by ANEB. The following list is only a guideline to evaluate the admissibility of the professional. ANEB reserves the right to accept or to refuse the addition of any new reference to the list at any time.
