For example, our founder and expert Sandra Kettner reported on the dangers of anorexia nervosa in a Spiegel TV program on February 16, 2014. In this report on eating disorders, she highlighted the risks of ProAna movements in particular and presented excerpts from a real therapy session. Sandra Kettner was also interviewed by a Dutch editorial team for a television documentary on the development of eating disorders. As an alternative practitioner for psychotherapy, she used this platform to share her own experiences and the understandable picture of this serious and dangerous disorder.

Eating disorder test: a first step towards self-assessment

Eating disorders are complex and multi-layered illnesses that often develop gradually and can be difficult to recognize for both sufferers and their relatives. In order to identify the first signs of an eating disorder, we have developed a special test that can help to better understand symptoms and warning signs.

Recognizing the signs of an eating disorder

The eating disorder test is designed to provide an initial indication of the presence of an eating disorder. It includes a series of questions designed to assess attitudes and behaviors related to eating, body image and self-perception. This test is a valuable tool for becoming more aware of one’s eating habits and the thoughts and feelings associated with them.

Importance of professional diagnosis

It is important to emphasize that this online test cannot replace a professional diagnosis. It serves as a guide and should encourage you to seek professional help if necessary. An accurate diagnosis and treatment of an eating disorder can only be made by a qualified professional.

The advantages of online counseling

Anonymity and privacy

Online counseling offers an essential element that is invaluable, especially for people with eating disorders: anonymity and privacy. It is often difficult for those affected to talk about their disorder, whether due to feelings of shame or fear of misunderstanding. The opportunity to seek help in a protected online environment without being exposed to the direct gaze of a therapist or other patients can significantly lower the inhibition threshold. This anonymity encourages many to take the first important step and seek professional support, which can be crucial in overcoming eating disorders.

Flexibility in scheduling appointments

Another significant advantage of online counseling is the flexibility in scheduling appointments. For many people, it is a challenge to fit regular sessions into an already busy schedule, especially if traveling to and from the practice takes up extra time. Online sessions offer a practical solution here: they can be conveniently attended from home or any other location, allowing patients to continue their therapy without major interruptions to their daily lives. This flexibility makes it easier to establish therapy as an i Continuity and support

Continuity in therapy is crucial for the treatment of eating disorders. Online counseling offers the great advantage that it can be continued regardless of time and place. This is particularly helpful for people who move frequently, travel for work reasons or are restricted in their mobility due to unforeseeable events such as illness. The ability to work with the same therapist regularly and without interruption creates a continuous support structure, which is very important for the healing process.

Access to specialized therapists

Another key benefit of online counseling is access to specialized therapists who may not be available in your area. Eating disorders often require specific and experienced treatment that cannot be found in every geographical location. Online platforms allow patients to connect with experienced professionals who specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, regardless of where they live. This greatly expands the opportunities for sufferers to receive quality, specialized help that can be critical to the road to recovery.
