Do you feel too fat? Not pretty like the others? Do you fear weight gain? Are you ashamed of your physique? Eating disorders are behavioural disorders in which the constant mental and emotional preoccupation with the topic of “eating” plays a central role. It can either be the general intake of food or its refusal. This is usually related to psychosocial problems as well as the attitude towards one’s own body (psychosomatic)
Eating disorders can lead to serious and long-term damage and sometimes even death. Well-known disorders include for example bulimia, where binge eating is followed by purging, or anorexia, where the overall food intake is limited to the absolute minimum or even nothing at all.

The Helpnet focus is the client. I wanted to create a place where anybody could get help. Whenever you want; in your mother tongue and preferably with someone having or knowing your cultural background. And despite what people think, getting help is not a weakness but a real strength. Because it takes strength to confront your “demons”, looking them in the eye and not hide from them.
Tilo Held, Counsellor
Since I have had some unconvincing experiences with appointment portals, I was very interested in the concept. It quickly proved that Helpnet did not have all the shortcomings that had bothered me before. Since I and my patients have been using it, it has also proved to be very user-friendly in daily use. Communication with the fortunately not so snooty owners and developers is encouraging and makes one predict that I will remain loyal to this tool and the people who offer it.
M.D. , Client
I was seeking a personal and individual coaching on The Helpnet and it managed to help me in opening me to new perspectives and helped me getting an employment in well-known companies. The counsellor’s empathy and great analysing skills helped me to find solutions to problems, of all kind. Doing this via video-call was not that foreign to me and helped me especially when I wasn’t able to get help in an other way.
S.T. , Client
It’s in a context of a difficult work situation, that I was looking for support. On the Helpnet I found a counsellor who was quickly available, listening, quick and particularly perceptive in her analysis. Our sessions enabled me at first to recognise the problem and therefore helped me improving my coping mechanism in daily life and my well-being. I got some quite simple behavioural and communication tools, that helped me clarify and improve my approach.
Laurence Defago, Counsellor
I discovered The Helpnet on the advice of a colleague. The concept immediately appealed to me and motivated me. The possibility of providing online psychotherapeutic support seemed to me to be particularly useful and innovative, especially in these times. The prospect of being able to offer consultations almost everywhere, i.e. to be able to travel freely for several months or weeks a year while continuing consultations, also seemed to me to be a hitherto unsuspected opportunity in my practice.
