In brief: Usually

People with eating disorders usually feel frustrated and would like to have help to control their episodes of binge eating.
They are sometimes reluctant to see help due to guilt, shame, depression, or a lack of knowledge that things could be better.

In brief: Yes

One might first ask the simpler question, "do women want help reversing their obesity?" of course they do! however, shame and other factors may interfere with their getting the help that they need.
Of course women want help with their binge eating disorder! they're not merely self-indulgent gluttonous pigs! they are deeply ashamed of and loathe themselves.
