I work with people with eating disorders using and addictions model. The process is very similar with it's origins often in trauma and always in a belief that "I'm not good enough as I am". The obsession with eating is triggered by these thoughts or feelings as well as the body increases serotonin when in starvation and dopamine when we binge on food. There is preoccupation with the behavior, compulsive rituals (exercising, counting calories, binge-eating) and a cycle of shame that serves to reinforce our negative beliefs about ourselves. The work begins when we realize that we don't want to live like this anymore.

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.

Mary, 22, battled with disordered eating, low self-esteem and poor self image for so many years. She struggled on her own before finally opening up in therapy. I suggested she write a secret letter and share her true feelings of shame and embarrassment about her abuse as a child, her promiscuity and her disdain for her own body. Later, we destroyed the letter. I also used guided imagery and mindfulness techniques to change her relationship with negative thoughts. Mary learned to cope by responding appropriately and actively changing her thought patterns. She chose to use new coping skills and engage in healthy relationships to replace her disordered eating.

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.

Does thinking about your weight leave you feeling defeated? Frustrated? Hopeless? Unfailing willpower doesn’t come from the perfect diet or exercise program… it comes from the mind. It’s not the diet we have to get right. Learning to manage your mind and identify self-sabotaging beliefs can be key to achieving your weight management goals. Sometimes, it’s not the diet we have to get right. Learning to manage your mind and identify self-sabotaging thoughts and beliefs can be key to achieving your weight management goals. Emotional eating, whether as a result of a bad mood or in the form of “treats” and “rewards”, and negative beliefs, such as “I will never be able to,” “I’m going to fail”...

There's a variety of approaches to eating disorders and none of them are perfect. However, as a cognitive disorder one of the most promising treatment methods to help put the mind and body back together is cognitive behavioural therapy. CBT has a strong remission rate because it helps focus on what you can change directly and gives you the tools to achieve those changes. Amanda's clinical training was based heavily in CBT and she's well equipped to help clients make important behavioural changes with their eating disorders.

Having an eating disorder is a coping mechanism. It is maladaptive, but it does serve a purpose in your life. There’s a reason that people hold onto it and end up in treatment multiple times. However, the eating disorder is not a solution. It doesn’t make you in control, the problems you are ignoring don’t just disappear, but actually are put in a holding. I can work with you what the underlying issues are.

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.

Together we will work on achieving a healthy balance in your life.

Eating Disorders are often a sign of tremendous pressures that have been building up over time. The onset of disrupted eating patterns can have many causes, but the dynamics of an eating disorder often involves self esteem issues, body image distortions and societal ideas of beauty. The treatment of eating disorders often involves a closer look at the family dynamics too as the family unit is the stage where this battle is fought. There are many public services available, and private practice can be a wonderful addition to the existing services.
