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.

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.

Eating disorder are as unique as the individuals suffering from them. I work to build on the strengths clients already have to overcome the eating behaviors interfering with their lives. Finding balance, regaining a sense of control, and developing more self-confidence and self-esteem are important to the clients I work with who are suffering from eating disorders. I see my clients as people, not as diseases and I remember that you have an eating disorder but that does not mean you are broken, it means you are a person who needs support.

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.

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.

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

Has eating gone from enjoyment to a battleground? Has your body gone from a friend to an enemy? Disordered eating can steal the happiness from our lives and strain the relationships we have with others. Whether it is anorexia, exercise-anorexia, orthorexia, bulimia, or binge eating disorder, whether you are a man or a woman, the strain can become unbearable. By working in gentle, non-judgemental ways, we can create a beautiful life, leaving the disorders eating behind.

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.
