My experience is primarily with overeating. I like Martha Beck's "been there" caring philosophy and approach and recommend her book and CD "The Four Day Win". My role is to provide psychological support. In addition to working on historical issues that may stand in the way, there is also a need to befriend the "inner critic" and "wild child" voices inside, and take small steps that are sustainable. I encourage assistance from groups and dietician and provide family/couple sessions as needed.

In my counselling practice and in my hypnotherapy practice I often talk with clients about what is "weighing them down" when they come to me with weight issues. If they come to me with an eating disorder that is not about weight but about consumption practices that are hurting them I will ask them how they connect with their external world and their life-style without using food or drink as the connector. In either case I have several hypnotherapy techniques that are specifically designed for overcoming eating disorders.

The goals for someone with an eating disorder may be to improve her/his body image and self-esteem and, perhaps to address other emotional issues. If you have an eating disorder, or think you may have one; you may discover that you have other problems in your life such as depression, stress, or substance abuse. You may explore feelings of sadness, anxiety, or anger with your therapist. When clients and therapists have a “good fit” with one another, counselling sessions can help a client to explore their “eating disordered thinking” and behaviors and learn strategies to become healthy and whole.

In a supportive and empathic environment I help people who are suffering from an eating disorder to develop trust, build motivation for change, implement and maintain strategies to change as well as monitor their recovery process and journey of self-discovery. I work with both cognitive and behavioral strategies as well as an insight-oriented focus on the client's awareness of self and body. My work with an eating disorder often includes family of origin issues.

Eating Disorders is another behavior that has been learned through practice. It is another habit that can be unlearned. It is effective to go into the underlying reasons for the behavior. There, we will find a lot of self esteem issues and deeply rooted negative core beliefs which are negative underlying assumptions about ourselves. People can greatly benefit from correcting those negative core assumptions so we may stop the surfacing of negative thoughts. By learning how to, we can change negative thoughts to either neutral or positive thoughts, which will tell our brains to make our bodies feel calmer or happier feelings. Only then are we able to stop the self defeating behaviors.
