Abstract

This research dossier was developed as an integral part of the practitioner doctorate degree in counselling psychology, and has evolved over the last three years. It contains three pieces of research: one literature review and two empirical studies. The literature review particularly focuses on the available help for bulimia nervosa and the process of seeking help for this type of human distress. By exploring the current trends in the eating disorders field and implications for individuals who experience bulimia nervosa, this literature review aimed to set the scene for future research projects. The first empirical study was a qualitative study, which explored the individual experience of seeking help for bulimia nervosa using interpretative phenomenological analysis. Conclusions from this study contributed to the development of the second empirical study. This second empirical study was also a qualitative study. It used a narrative analysis approach to explore how individuals who experienced bulimia nervosa made sense of themselves and their experiences after recovery.
