Hotline support for eating disorders and body image concerns is available in Gibraltar.

It's normal to feel disatisfied with the way your body looks some days. But feeling this way most days is unhealthy. Poor body image can lead to disordered eating. If you have any of the following symptoms, there are 2 free hotlines in Gibraltar that can help you:

  • A lack of energy and fatigue.
  • Dizziness and potentially fainting.
  • Fear of gaining weight and becoming larger.
  • Skipping meals on a regular basis.
  • Feeling uncomfortable eating in front of others.
  • Monitoring calories consumed very cautiously and paying close attention to food nutrition labels.
  • Eating large portions of food and being unable to control yourself or extreme food restriction.
  • Withdrawal from social activities, especially ones that involve food and eating.

You may feel bad about how far your disordered eating has gone. Disordered eating and poor body image can cause feelings of shame and guilt. Often, these feelings make people want to withdraw from others.

Talking to someone about what you're experiencing can bring up uncomfortable feelings. You may wonder whether a stranger will understand you or how they can help. Crisis line counselors in Gibraltar are trained to help people cope with problems like yours. They will listen to you, support you, and give you appropriate guidance.

If you think you might need support with disordered eating or body image today, consider contacting a helpline in Gibraltar for free, confidential help.
