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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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”...

In T5T 6M1 - Nearby to Thorsby.

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.
