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.

An eating disorder is part of a constellation of addictive behaviours that help you cope with an underlying issue, particularly negative feelings about yourself, which when repeated results in more negative feelings. Let us address this cycle together with understanding and compassion, and mindfulness. Treatment for your eating disorder will help you gain more insight into the emotional underpinnings of your behaviours, and work towards relaxing this stressful circle.

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 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.

Eating disorders are a symptom of low self esteem. What is need is an ongoing psychotherapy to become aware of feelings and needs that have been repressed while attending to learning new ways of self care and replenishment. Help in providing a structure and contracts for change are also part of the treatment for eating disorders.

Sometimes we deny our needs and this can include our need to eat. The problem is the control others might have over us if we are to reveal our needs. Exploring the need to express our needs and have control over our lives increase our ability to choose. The tangible we create with our bodies that mirror this dilemma can take many forms, but the healing comes from reconnecting to our needs. I have successfully worked with people from a variety of backgrounds to treat a variety of eating disorders and look forward to working with you.

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.

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.

Our relationship with food can get really complicated! Food is intended to nourish us and keep us healthy, but a unhealthy relationship with food can easily develop. Frequently food becomes a coping mechanism for dealing with stress, anxiety, perfectionism and self-hate. It is when you start to address the underlying causes of destructive eating and begin to value yourself more that you can start to develop a healthier relationship with yourself and food.
