For clients facing Binge-Eating Disorders, concurrent with mood and/or anxiety disorders, I approach clients from person-centered, existential, and cognitive behavioral perspectives. I view BEDs and disordered eating as having it's origins in multiple areas to include addiction, emotional triggers, low self-concept, shame, and so forth. As a result, I would work with a binge-eating disordered client on the physical, cognitive, emotional, and spiritual front and educate the client on the cycle of emotional eating, addiction, and shame. In addition to working through the underlying shame, low self-concept, and low stress tolerance, I would employ practical and easy to use CBT tools.
