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.

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”...

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.

Eating disorders and disordered eating behaviours (ex: emotional eating, binge eating, restricting, purging, etc.) are often preceded and exacerbated by problematic thought patterns, negative core beliefs, and a poor self-image. I can help clients challenge their thoughts and beliefs, replace negative coping skills, and rebuild their self-image. Accompanying anxiety, depression, and trauma can also be addressed and managed as these conditions frequently co-occur with eating disorders.

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.

When a teen experiences anorexia nervosa or bulimia, the whole family is under stress. The focus will initially be on nurturing a supportive relationship with the teen where she (he) feels understood and enjoyed. The family, especially the parents, will also be involved in enhancing communication skills and expanding on their teamwork effectiveness. Working collaboratively as a family has been found to be a highly effective approach to healing for the teen as well as the rest of the family's interactions.

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.
