Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V5T 3E3 - Nearby to Gulf Islands.

A healthy, rich, full and meaningful life- this is what we want for you. What is going on? How are you thinking? How are you feeling? How do you see yourself and the world? What are you trying desperately to control? We might begin with these questions in a session together when the presenting issue is an eating disorder. Our approach to eating disorders is person centered, and we decide as a unit which approach may work the best for you. We incorporate some art therapy activities to help explicate/integrate these processes.

Demill Keevil, MCP:AT, RCC, CCC, Art Therapist

Counsellor/Art Therapist

In V7T 1C5 - Nearby to Gulf Islands.

My approach to treating eating disorders is holistic, meaning that I focus on treating the whole person: body, mind, and soul. Your treatment will be highly individualized and may include both traditional talk therapy and art therapy. (It's up to you if you'd like to try working with art or not.) While working on the eating disorder, we will also address any relevant underlying conditions, such as anxiety, depression, or trauma. Depending on your preferences, I may use a combination of modalities, including ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™. My approach is also informed by my own ED recovery journey.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V6J 1Y9 - Nearby to Gulf Islands.

As an experienced therapist in the area of eating disorders, I have found that often the greatest healing occurs through re-connectiong with the body, developing a trusting and loving relationship with it, and discovering its wisdom. When one begins to trust that that far from being one's enemy, the body is one's constant friend and guide, one's whole experience of self can be transformed. One lives from one's own core rather than focusing on food, body image, and others' evaluations, and therefore one becomes more confident and life becomes richer and freer.

I work with people who are struggling with emotional eating and are having difficulties managing their weight. The focus is on mental health, nutrition and body work. I explore what is causing the emotional eating and find ways to deal with the underlying emotion. The foundation of my work in this area is the transtheoretical model of change but I do include a number of other therapeutic approaches including EMDR.

Psychotherapist and Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V9C 1E7 - Nearby to Gulf Islands.

If you are eating in an unhealthy way quite possibly you have sought medical advice. Counseling will support you by looking for the reasons why you use food and eating in unhealthy ways. i will ask you to tell your story in lots of detail. Maybe you will uncover self esteem issues or issues about control and power. We may talk about feminism and societal trends and advertising which encourage you to try to look like models or entertainers. We will try to strengthen your pride and acceptance of yourself so you do not seek approval using behaviours not respectful of you health and individuality. We will look at effective eating management strategies and self honoring lifestyle choices.

Connectivity Counselling, RCC

Registered Clinical Counselor

In v7p 0a7 - Nearby to Gulf Islands.

For those struggling with binge-eating, food addiction, or yo-yo dieting, I would love to help. The fundamental principle that we must accept before addressing disordered eating is that it is almost never about the food, it's about the act of eating and what need it is fulfilling within ourselves. Let's work together to discover why your relationship with food has become unhealthy and come up with some ideas of how we can change it. You shouldn't have to be afraid of your refrigerator.

In V8M 1J8 - Nearby to Gulf Islands.

I am honoured that you are interested in my services and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been described as slightly non-conventional in the counselling world, which suits me perfectly, and also tends to suit youth who are trying to stand up to the force of the problems in their life. I am very comfortable working with this population, and I feel fortunate that I can connect with teens the way I do, conventionally or in a way that makes sense to them.

While most eating disorder issues are treated by cognitive behavioral methodologies or specialized outpatient/inpatient programs, Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, PhD provide relief first and foremost for the brain of one suffering from an eating disorder----without giving them medication. We believe that the neural circuitries responsible for the compulsive behaviors with eating are not necessarily only a neurotransmitter issue but of overused neural networks that affect the harmonization, balance, and decisions of the whole brain.
