Following a referral from my GP and some blood tests, I had an initial session in one of the therapy rooms at the hospital with a clinical psychologist. This duration of the session was around an hour long, and after giving some context on the problem which I was facing, I was asked to give the particulars of this problem; i.e. my diet on an average day, my binging habits, my relationship with exercise, alcohol, drugs, and the history of this problem. We then delved into the mental and emotional issues surrounding my problem, i.e. how I perceived my body and the impact of this problem on my social life, family life, career etc. We also considered its potential causes in alignment to significant events taking place in my life.
