In M9A 1B6 - Nearby to East York.

If you are struggling with an eating disorder we want to focus on what has brought you to your current eating and nutritional patterns and behaviours. I want to initially focus less about the foods you eat and the current behaviours surrounding your food intake, and more about what you are wanting to accomplish in doing so. Do you feel a need to control your environment? Do you feel anxious or out of control in other areas of your life? Are you wanting to push away or ignore some other important concerns? Let's explore. My primary focus is to help you feel good about yourself and your environment, and empower you to continue to create the changes within yourself that you want to make.

Registered Psychotherapist & Cognitive behavioural therapist

In M4N 3N1 - Nearby to East York.

Have you ever thought about what you were eating and why? Do you know what you were thinking and feeling at the time you were choosing which food to eat? Were you sad, anxious, or stressed about something? Or, had you just finished a stressful experience and felt the need for ‘comfort food’? Have you ever heard the term, ‘emotional eating’? Firstly, let me tell you, you are NOT alone! Many people with psychological problems turn to food for comfort and relief from stress. I can help you design an action plan to manage these challenging thoughts, feelings, and behavioural choices, towards your goals and sustainable change.

In L4A 7X5 - Nearby to East York.

An eating disorder is typically tied to a feeling of being out of control. Although I deal with the practical considerations of the disorder, I also teach my clients to look at there whole life to see what else needs to be addressed in order to successfully navigate this condition. Our work revolves on no judgement but is based on facts that look at the price and reward of each decision my client's make.

In M4P 1G8 - Nearby to East York.

Eating disorders appear to result from multiple factors including cultural, social, family and emotional pressures; personality disorders; genetics and biological factors. Some research has shown a connection between child sexual abuse and subsequent development of eating disorders. Eating disorders typically begin during adolescence. Moreover, up to 90 per cent of eating disorders occur in women, though men are being diagnosed more. Helping have a healthy relationship with oneself, gaining tools for coping, healing past issues is some of the therapy focussed on.

Barry Johnston-Spooner, M.Ed., Registered Psychotherapist

Registered Psychotherapist

In L6C 1Z7 - Nearby to East York.

We may not need to learn how to eat - but eating in a balanced way can be quite the trick to learn! If compulsive eating (or avoiding it or overeating and 'getting rid' of it...) is a problem it would seem simple to change this. Sometimes that's true. But if it's not for you, you already know how it has a profound impact on your life. So, like many of our addictions (and I would say that we all have some form of addiction) to change such a pattern can feel impossible. In therapy the trick is to find how the particular 'routine' that you have works - both to help you as well as how it hinders your life. From there, we can plan ways to continue the 'good' yet move beyond what is 'problematic'.

Eating Disorder Counsellor

Shelley Whitehouse, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

In L4E 5C5 - Nearby to East York.

Eating disorders are a common coping mechanism that we use in order to keep the pain down that wants to rise up. There is a part of us that wants to push down any feelings arising that we have worked hard to bury so that we do not have to feel the pain associated with our feelings around our sense of worth, or our trauma. We often will mindlessly go to food to feel better, to feel satisfied and to feel rewarded in some way.

Liane Odze-Silver, MA, RP
Eating Disorder Counsellor

Liane Odze-Silver, MA, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

In M6C 3H1 - Nearby to East York.

Work in therapy focuses on self-esteem, body image, eating patterns and how to move towards healthy eating, "what is healthy eating", obsessional thoughts about food, weight, shape and body image, media and peer pressure, also on perfectionism, issues with control, mental health issues, interpersonal problems; and, when the client wishes, on family problems and childhood issues such as trauma and abuse. We build a relationship where it is safe to explore issues that you choose to bring. You decide what is discussed. This is a place where there is no pressure to be a certain way. You are free to explore your ideas about what you would like to change, and I work to understand and hear.

Gabriela Vilar, MA Counselling

Spanish Bilingual Psychotherapist

In L1S 2E9 - Nearby to East York.

I offer individual counselling to support your efforts to lose weight based on the diet of your choice. Stress, depression, or anxiety due to hormonal changes, cravings or emotional difficulties may lead some individuals to overeat. Being overweight alters the functioning of the whole body plus may hurt emotionally as well. The psychological component of a successful weight loss is just as important as nutrition and exercise. Counselling supports you by identifying the emotional factors that affect your weight by rebalancing your lifestyle in a holistic way. We also work on improving your relationship with food, with your body and to learn to respond in a different and compassionate way.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

In M5J 2T3 - Nearby to East York.

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. Contact kevin@kevinfleminphd.com or 877-606-6161 to learn more about this safe and effective alternative.

Eating Disorders are best followed by a medical doctor, due to the complex emotional, physical health and mental health issues involved. I only work with eating disorder clients once their condition has been medically managed. I work specifically in the area of anxiety/depression management, attitude adjustment, acceptance, self esteem and healthy lifestyle choices. If you or your loved one has an eating disorder it is important that you first seek proper medical attention by your M.D. and health professional team.
