My approach to treating eating disorders is to focus on challenging negative thoughts and increasing a client's ability to cope with distressing emotions. The primary function of an eating disorder is emotion regulation, therefore if you learn to regulate emotions you are less likely to engage in symptoms. Therapy will result in a decrease in symptoms, improved body image, improved relationships, and increase of sense of self worth.

Disordered eating is a form of control for girls, boys, men and women of many ages and stages of life. It sometimes starts as a positive health-consciousness and sometimes starts from a place of public shaming about appearance. Either way, disordered eating can ruin ones health, relationships, achievement potential and goals and clients who work with me on this problem will benefit from a treatment plan tailor-made to their unique vulnerabilities, strengths and supports.

In my practice I encourage people to look at their relationship with food and encourage them to understand the "why" behind their behaviours surrounding food. I encourage flexibility and acceptance and believe that as one comes to heal the underlying "why" that a healthy way of being with food will start. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship to address issues that come from disordered eating such a shame, a lack of control, distress and guilt. In my practice we will look at identifying the problem, developing skills to interrupt the disordered eating, understand how weight stigma is connected with worthiness and establishing a healthy relationship with food.

Emotional Eating is a symptom of uncomfortable pressure that builds up inside of you. When you feel these uncomfortable feelings you may distract yourself with food and momentarily you feel better. You may notice that soon after, that uncomfortable feeling returns and it becomes a cycle of feeling bad and distracting yourself with food. This turns into an unhealthy cycle that often leaves you feeling frustrated and depressed. Food is the symptom not the reason. Together we can resolve the root cause of these uncomfortable feelings so you can have a healthy comfortable relationship with food and feel better about yourself. This is the time to make the change.

It is my hope that individual therapy will benefit clients who may currently be participating in community-based support groups and group therapy, giving them the opportunity to explore in more depth the underlying issues related to their challenges with food. Clients will benefit from exploring relationship issues with significant people in their lives. They will learn to identify inner and situational triggers that may have resulted in harmful patterns and choices in the past. They will benefit from identifying negative and debilitating thought patterns, and will develop self-affirming beliefs to move them to greater confidence and self-acceptance.

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.

Like most symptoms, the behaviour is driven by a feeling of self loathing. So the answer is to look at the mistaken belief created by the child that there is something very wrong with who they are. When shown the truth of who they are and they learn to love themselves, the behavior is no longer necessary. Learning to love yourself is a process of undoing the identity that was made up by the child. You too, can remember your innocence

Many forms or disordered eating are related to emotional eating. Somewhere along the line you have learned to soothe stress and overwhelm using food. Whether you're a binger or grazer, you are most likely familiar with feeling either in deprivation mode (you're dieting or restricting) or failure mode. Failure mode, feeling helpless and powerless in your attempts to control your eating behaviour can lead to bulimia, food addiction and binge eating. As an addictions counsellor I have specialized in Eating Disorders. Using a blend of cognitive behavioural therapy and somatic psychotherapy, I will help you change your eating patterns, stop disordered eating and develop a relapse prevention plan.

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 disorders are complex and multi-faceted. Treatment of eating disorders requires an holistic approach working with the individual and his or her family and other health care providers. More often than not, an eating disorder is a symptom of some other problem. While the individual's medical health must be monitored and controlled, therapy focuses on changing thinking and behaviour patterns that reinforce the eating challenges while exploring the underlying factors contributing to the presentation of the eating disorder.

Eating disorders are difficult because food is such an integral part of our survival and it can be a source of comfort as well as nourishment. We learn our relationship to food as young children and unconscious messages may continue to play a part in our eating habits as we grow older. Strong emotions often play a part as well since "emotional eating" is an attempt to keep our emotional balance. To develop a healthy relationship with food we need to take stock of all the elements of our lives and our culture to find a way to relate differently. You may be overlooking your strengths and be in need of a new perspective to assist in this process. Help is here - you don't need to do this alone.

In V3S 1C7 - Nearby to Murrayville.

Every person is unique and I help clients to find answers that are right for them. Sometimes, just bringing one's awareness into the body, saying "hello" inside, can be new, profound, and liberating experience. Listening within the body carefully and respectfully, we work to develop a new relationship within the self. Working from this bodily felt sense, there is a physiological shift that allows change and movement out of unhealthy or stuck places.

Do you eat to feel better? Do you associate eating with comfort and other positive emotions? You are not alone. Join others in group therapy that struggle with the same issues with which you are faced. Through individual or group therapy (your choice), you can learn to become motivated to change this behaviour, self-monitor, control your eating, eat healthy meals, find alternate ways to meet your needs, and maintain new behaviours.

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.

Eating disorders can develop at any age to anyone. I help clients recognize that they have a compulsion and how their need to control is negatively affecting them. I often use DBT therapy with clients and offer support groups as well. I have a lot of experience working with teenagers and can offer community support and other various tools to help clients deal with their eating disorders.

Dealing with an eating disorder is a journey for the client. It is very multifaceted. Issues such as childhood and upbringing, parenting and peer influences and societal pressures come in to play. I work with individuals to start to love the body they are in. When you love something it is harder to not treat it badly. Eating disorders are a way of gaining control in a life that feels not in control. Understanding what drives this need for control plays a key role in recovery.

Eating disorders affect all aspects of an individual’s life: emotional, cultural, physiological, and spiritual. Eating disorders are a very serious matter and they be can life threatening. Healing is rarely easy, but there is hope for individuals struggling with eating disorders to lead healthy, functional, and fulfilling lives. Families are deeply affected, and I often do a combination of individual and family sessions. Together we explore inner belief systems, the critical voice, family history and patterns, strengths, supports, and resources. With support and care people can recover from eating disorders. ???

In V3B 2H6 - Nearby to Murrayville.

Eating disorders is a form of coping that individuals use to try and control one aspect of life - themselves. Often individuals dealing with eating disorders feel that the world around them is out of control and they have little to no control over changing anything around them. I work with clients to help them identify with how this type of injury on one's self is the opposite of self-care and compassion, and ultimately does not lead to actual control over things. I help to focus on what we can control and work to empower clients by bringing more attention to themselves in a caring and non-judgmental way that gives many options for control and change.

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.
