Jo Baker was delighted to be joined by HG therapist, Russell McKenzie, on our latest Ask the Expert podcast, Eating Disorders – helping people take back control.  Russell explains how he helps people to take back control of their lives – by removing barriers and giving them the tools to be able to manage their mental health better.

  • Why people develop eating disorders
  • Eating disorder addiction

  • How eating disorders impact someone’s life and their loved ones, family and employment
  • The recovery process – what can you do to help
  • Breaking the cycle of the addictive behaviour
  • Signs of bulimia and binge eating
  • Bodybuilders and binge eating
  • How to approach the subject – what not to say
