Are you looking for help overcoming night eating syndrome? Counselling can help with a variety of food issues including binge eating, overeating, eating junk food, comfort eating and night snacking. A number of things can contribute to this problem and there are various methods of treatment but it’s important to get this issue under control to ensure your body and mind are healthy. People who struggle with this eating disorder are often plagued by other emotional problems. Counselling can help you regain control.
The trained psychotherapists at Bayside Psychotherapy have experience in addiction counselling, mindfulness therapy, NLP, hypnosis, and other therapies and we can help you stop nocturnal eating — regardless of the causes. Our therapists will work with you at our Melbourne clinic or you can get help via online counselling, which can be extremely effective. Above and beyond getting our help, we also list recommended downloadable hypnotherapy recordings on each page of this site that can help people with many different conditions. Self hypnosis can help you on its own (depending on the severity of your situation) but our counsellors often recommend using it in conjunction with counselling. Whichever way you decide to get the help you need, be proud of yourself for taking this first step to stopping your evening binge eating.

We can work together and you can overcome your eating and food issues.
There are many different causes and symptoms of night eating syndrome. Individuals may eat once or eat repeatedly through the night. Some do this because they’re trying to overcome binge eating during the daytime and after a long day of resisting temptations, their resolve has totally faded. Some people find that they’ve eaten and don’t even recall consuming food in the night. They wake up to food missing from the fridge and pantry. People with night eating problems often feel lonely, isolated, self-loathing, anger with themselves, and become depressed. These emotions can create other problems in your life and impact your energy, relationships, and productivity at work.
Counselling can help you see food as it should be seen — as a source of sustenance instead of a comfort or to reduce anxiety and stress. Yes, food can temporarily change your mood but it can also be very harmful when eaten in excess. If you are having trouble stopping night eating or bingeing on your own, counselling can be extremely beneficial.
How long will treatment take?
Treatment for eating issues will vary depending on the individual. Some clients change their thoughts and habits in just a few short therapy sessions, with neuro linguistic programming, which will change your behaviours and thought patterns and can eliminate addiction and related behaviours. Others require more in-depth treatment. Your openness and willingness to participate in your treatment is going to have a major impact on the duration of that treatment.
Is Bayside Psychotherapy’s treatment really different?
Treatment at Bayside Psychotherapy is different from many other counselling clinics. Not only are we flexible in the way we do counselling but we also cater your treatment to your individual needs. Our training and methods enable us to customize and base treatment on your needs. With various methods to draw from, if a method is not working, your therapist can alter the course to find a better option for you. Whether we use NLP, mindfulness therapy, or a combination of several treatments, we assure you that we will work to help you in a supportive, safe, and caring environment.
Don’t let one more night go by with needless eating that’s harmful to your body and your mind. Above and beyond meeting with our counsellors via the web or in the office, you can also download a recommended Stop Night time Eating recording that can help you break the cycle of eating at night just by listening. We look forward to getting to know you soon. Make a confidential appointment by calling (03) 9557 9113 or using our contact form.
