A sense of self is easily interrupted by stress, change, and trauma. Maybe you feel like you have never really known yourself and have always been focused on others. Or, maybe, you feel like you have lost a sense of self due to big changes in your life. This could all be tied in with how you feel about your body, especially if it has gone through a change as well. We can offer support for this, including help for: • Body image concerns • Low self-esteem or self-worth • Questioning self-purpose and plan • People pleasing, rescuing and fixing • Chronic guilt, regret and shame

Issues with eating are an understandable reaction to difficult or traumatic circumstances. The word disorder is faulty as it implies that it is a single person's disorder. However, the disorder is one of society. Due to limitations and restrictions of society, institutions, media, and groups, we have learned to restrict and or indulge ourselves in food. It is my goal to explore the emotional and cognitive roots of your issues with food as well as to figure out just how these limitations and restrictions of our society and/or families have affected you. In discovering the roots of the struggle, we can then collaboratively work towards health and healing.

I have worked with clients who have issues stemming from trauma/abuse and self-esteem. Together we take the necessary steps to change. We will use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to understand the emotional disturbances that stem from eating disorders. I also believe in utilizing additional social service networks to assist in this approach if deemed necessary.

Eating disorders are a complex mental health problem with many contributing factors. My approach focuses on understanding the context of the eating disorder development with each individual client, learning about triggers for related behaviours, and exploring and healing underlying issues. Clients will learn to cope without the eating disorder and will be able to minimize or eliminate unhealthy behaviours. In addition, clients will rediscover who they are away from the eating problem. Many clients have described feeling free or like they have "been lifted out of the fog" as they recover and are able to enjoy their life without the eating disorder thoughts and behaviours interfering.

Eating disorders such as bulimia, anorexia, binge eating, and compulsive eating as well preoccupation with weight and shape are quite common in our culture and can be devastating and complex. Often there are severe consequences in terms of productivity, relationships and health. The good news is that it is possible to find our way out of an eating disorder. Whether through individual, family or group therapy, counsellors can assist us in changing our perceptions and behaviours and develop healthy self-esteem, communication, coping skills and emotional well being. (If we could have done it on our own... we would have by now.)

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.

Eating disorders are a symptom of distress and a subsequent need to manage that distress. Understanding the source of the distress can greatly help to alleviate the symptoms enough to learn new ways of coping that are not as compromising of the body, but rather move the individual toward a more balanced regard for self and a healthier lifestyle. Depending on the severity of the disorder it may well require co-operation and participation of other family members as well. This kind of support can often bring faster more permanent positive changes.

Does body image effect weight loss? Absolutely. People with poor body image often struggle more with emotional eating as well as the lack of confidence to choose a healthy lifestyle. Research indicates that improving body image can enhance a person's ability to adopt a healthy weight loss plan and be successful (Journal of Behavioural Nutrition and Physical Activity). Learning to accept and love our bodies and ourselves is an important and often a difficult ongoing struggle. Rather than trying primarily to be thin, women should work towards focusing their energy into developing healthier lifestyles as well as experimenting with what weight feels comfortable.

Eating disorder can overshadow your life, stealing the joy and self-respect. I have worked with many who struggled with eating disorders and disordered eating and yes, it is possible to fight it and move beyond it. In the therapy with me you become aware of your strengths, your limitations and areas that need strengthening. You discover you are not alone and let the guilt and shame sweep away and become stronger. You learn how to create healthier boundaries, recognize triggers and become emotionally and mentally stronger.

Depending on the severity, I often approach clients with eating disorders with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) or Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). Clients with eating disorders can benefit from CBT by learning to recognize how certain thoughts and feelings may be connected to harmful behaviours. If clients can learn to change their thoughts, they may be able to change their behaviour. DBT can help clients describe, tolerate, express and cope with their negative emotions.
