In V6H 3K2 - Nearby to Gulf Islands.

Recovery from eating disorders (ED) is possible regardless of how long and intensley you may have struggled with it. ED works to rob you of your life, but you can have your life back from an eating disorder. Though it rarely seems so, ED's are not about food and body image, but about the underlying emotional issues and challenges one is experiencing. I would be pleased to assist you in recovering and understanding these issues and aid you in resolving them. Each woman longs for a beauty to unfold, and I believe each woman has this. You are not an exception.

In V7M 1B3 - Nearby to Gulf Islands.

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.

Whether it is counting calories in extreme, using laxatives, exercising excessively or purging food, I can help you stop the behavior and replace it with healthier behavior. The "cause" of an eating disorder is individual to each person but in therapy you will become clearer on this cause and learn the triggers in order to prevent relapse. The benefit of stopping the eating disordered behavior is a healthier body, less physical health risks, an increase in self-esteem and better body image.

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 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.

Eating Disorder Counsellor

Devorah Peterson, M.Ed., RCC

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.

M.A., Registered Clinical Counsellor, Employment Assistance Program Therapist

In V4K 5C8 - Nearby to Gulf Islands.

Counting calories becomes a way of life. You start to judge yourself harder and more than anyone else does. People say just be happy with who you are. But how do you get there when you have put this label in your head? Do you deserve better? Yes you do. A friend once said to me, " when I give you a compliment it is like a slap in the face when you don't accept it!" Do we have the right to take that away from the other person. Maybe they see more in us then we see in ourselves. I know if you are here your ready to feel really good about yourself no matter where your at with your eating habits. I'm here when your ready.

In V9B 3S6 - Nearby to Gulf Islands.

True recovery involves listening to your body, listening to your feelings, trusting yourself, accepting yourself, loving yourself, and enjoying life again. Asking for help is the first step, but addressing health problems is also important. Therapy can help with creating a long-term treatment plan. Therapy focuses on addressing the following: root causes of the problem, identifying emotional triggers, difficulty coping with stress, anxiety, fear, sadness and other uncomfortable emotions. Feelings of shame and isolation are also primary targets of a good cognitive behavioural treatment plan.
