Online Bulimia Programme
anonymous Asks ...
I just read that the best first step to overcoming bulimia is to try an evidence based self help program by myself, before I even need to think about getting treatment. I am a 21 year old woman who has been binging and purging off and on but with increasing frequency for about 2 years. Would you agree that trying a self help program first is a good idea before getting other treatment and can you recommend an evidence based self help program for bulimia, because I am not sure exactly what that means?

There is an Online Bulimia Programme --- http://www.bulimiahelp.org/bulimia-recovery-program. I have to say that I don't know anyone who has participated in this programme though. There are a lot of testimonials though.
I have treated a few bulimic patients, very successfully, over the years but obviously this was not a self help programme.This was psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy which worked very well.
