Never thin enough. The number on the scale defines self-worth. These are just a few phrases I hear clients use when struggling with an eating disorder. Rarely is an eating disorder about weight or food or image. The underlying issues revolve around control and safety and vulnerability. Together, we can work towards establishing healthy attitudes and boundaries with self, others, and food.

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.

Eating disorders benefit from the same or similar approach used for all addictive behaviours. One of the main therapeutic approaches I use is Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. The relationship to food can be quite complex involving societal or cultural pressures, self-image, past traumas, addictive non-nutritious junk food, media images, social media pressures, bullying. Shame and guilt need to be addressed along with peer pressures. The most common eating disorders are: Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating, Pica, Rumination Disorder, Avoidance/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), Orthorexia, Purging Disorder etc. The benefits of therapy are enhanced self-image, health and well-being.

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.

Traditional eating disorder treatments place the problem within the person. Using a Feminist and Narrative approach, I believe in unpacking people's experiences and stories. When a full picture of the problem is created, we can then understand the conditions of how the eating disorder came to be. Through a non-judgemental and non-blaming approach, it is my job to create an environment where clients can make sense of their struggles. Goals and treatment are negotiated with clients and are collaborative.

While I am not specifically a specialist in eating disorders, but I am a specialist in addiction and self esteem, both of which are usually at the heart of eating disorders. As with all addictions and obsessions, I work to uncover what the object of our obsession means to you, and why it holds such power. I find that bringing consciousness and deep compassion to the problem is often a key to not only understanding the addiction better but are often the main factors for changing and healing it. Addiction usually thrives in darkness and solitude, and bringing in understanding and relationship to the equation is almost always healing.

Eating Disorders can become all-consuming, and extremely disruptive of every day life. Most who suffer with eating disorders think about their relationship with food all day long, weigh themselves excessively, and do (sometimes irreparable) damage to their bodies and psyches. Dr Sloat helps you to find the underlying causes and thinking patterns that perpetuate your disorder so you can find a sustainable solution and implement it. Are you ready to reclaim yourself?

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.

Issues related to food and body-image, eating or not eating, perfectionism, or overall fixation on appearance can flood your reality to the point where they consume you. These kinds of issues often arise to serve a function, or fulfill a purpose, in your inner, psychological world. They can be a way to cope, to try to heal hurt parts of yourself, to maintain control in uncontrollable situations. Sometimes, they can be related to adverse childhood experiences and developmental trauma—though all the jargon may not apply or do justice to your individual context. Together, we can find a way to manage your thoughts and behaviors and take steps to address anything that may be underlying them.
