Eating disorder can be seen as a condition characterized by unhealthy eating habits that may involve either too little or too much food intake to the detriment of the individual's physical & emotional well-being. Bulimia nervosa, binge eating, & anorexia nervosa are the most common forms of eating disorders. It is not known with certainty what causes eating disorders, however, it is known that they can be due to combination's of biological, psychological or environmental cause.The treatment for eating disorders will vary, for each individuals eating disorder. We focus on gaining control and changing unwanted behaviours, and thought patterns that support change in behaviours.

Many people struggle with eating issues. Ultimately, food is not the issue - it is about how we feel about ourselves on the inside and how we believe others value us. Even though eating disorders are complex, we can make invaluable changes to improve life and bring peace to your thoughts. Using a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy and exploring the root problems such as poor self-esteem, perfectionism, requiring approval from others - we can change your life.

Eating disorders can manifest in a number of forms; including over eating, bulimia and anorexia. A therapist is an integral part of your treatment. Our relationship with food is usually not just physical, but emotional as well. If your emotional relationship with food is not addressed it is difficult to make lasting changes. Often people deal with unpleasant feelings by eating or not eating. I will help you to address feelings and deal with them in a more constructive manner.

Eating disorders, whether this is in the form of anorexia, bulimia, or compulsive/emotional eating, can be seen as an unheatlhy coping mechanism for stress and life difficulties. I work with clients to identify the issues they are experiencing, and replace their maladaptive coping methods with more healthy ones. This would include working through unresolved issues, identifying difficulties with control, establishing more assertiveness and healthy boundaries, learning the appropriate expression of feelings, and working through body image issues. We would also work towards identifying triggers for disordered eating, and then put coping strategies in place for when these occur in the future.

I view eating disorders as process addictions. I view addictions and compulsions as coping strategies that persist because they work (or once did); but are being identified as disordered because they no longer help the client cope they way they once did. So, sourcing the root of the disorer is essential. There are also specific strategies for altering habitual behaviors that can be quite useful as the client turns from a failing method of coping to one that in fact functions and permits personsl growth toward self-actualization.

Problems with eating behaviours are quite distressing and difficult for the person to control. My approach to this area is to help the person identify and work with the “triggers” to these behaviours. These triggers are often emotional and psychological in nature, from stress and frustration, to low mood, perfectionism, body image difficulties, self-esteem and relationship issues, etc. My work focuses on helping the person to manage or resolve these underlying issues or triggers, so that they free themselves from the “trap” of eating behaviour problems.
