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.

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 V8N 1L6 - Nearby to Gulf Islands.

I help women with eating disorders to understand and let go of the destructive eating patterns which are trying to fill the void caused by their emotional hunger. Most clients have already been through the rehab process, surgery, cognitive therapy and short term solutions and are looking for a way to satisfy their deeper hunger. The journey is not linear. It twists and turns through a process of self-discovery to the core of the heart they are trying to nourish. We work with early trauma issues, with boundaries, and with assertiveness techniques in a supportive and compassionate environment, to let go of the addiction to perfection, which is often the root of an eating disorder.

In V5G 2H1 - Nearby to Gulf Islands.

Eating disorders are an unhealthy pattern, used by a healthy individual, to deal with an issue. Together we explore what the issue is about. We don't talk about food a lot, but about what lies beneath. In most cases the person has difficulties of emotional regulation, which are then transferred on the corporal level. Once the client becomes aware of that, we slowly unwrap the issue and the feelings involved.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V6Z 2R4 - Nearby to Gulf Islands.

I work with clients dealing with disordered eating by helping them first identify their individual triggers, habits, thought patterns, flawed coping strategies, body image issues, and belief systems. Most people who have an eating disorder developed this as a means to cope with bigger issues in their lives such as poor self-esteem, trauma, depression, anxiety, or other significantly painful events. I work with clients to help them gain insight into the source of their disordered eating, to develop awareness around their thoughts, and to create change through teaching healthy coping strategies and processing of the source of their pain.

Registered Clinical Counselor / Canadian Certified Counselor

In V9S 1G5 - Nearby to Gulf Islands.

Eating Disorders can impact someone as negatively as any type of serious addiction. However, unlike addiction treatment plans, food must continue to play a role in your life. My basic goal is to stop further development of any eating problem you may have, and assist you in returning to a healthy lifestyle. The most successful focus is on harm reduction as an overall principle in addressing eating disorders, with the end goal of moving towards complete recovery. I also typically want to establish effective coping skills to reduce the possibility of relapse and sustain the progress you make in therapy.

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.

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.

If you struggle with binge eating I can assist you to develop a healthier relationship with food. I view binge eating as an addiction to food and can help you learn how to identify your triggers, deal with cravings, and manage distressing feelings that you may be supressing with food. I can also teach you ways of soothing and coping with the emotions or situations that may be stimulating your binge eating.

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.

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.
