One cant help wondering what exactly it i about seeing a shrink tha she says she finds so frighterning. Sadly, this is not a rare situation, in which we see someonealmost clinging to their illness and symptoms, and finding excuses not to get treatment. But it also has to be remembered that not only is depression and anorexia unpleasant but dangerous --- untreated, both condiions have a significant death rate. This is very frustrating for you, especially a you yourself are suh a good example of someone who had the widsom to et help and work with therapy.
Broadly, there's little one can do other than to persist in trying to persuade her, nless her family ( who have some legal sanding ) or her GP, conider there is significant and sufficient risk to her life to seek to arrange for compulsory assessment and treatment, which is legally possible, but often undesirable and capable of causing major problems including a loss of her trust
