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.

I work with your negative body image, from the inside out. "The negative image is understood as a dissociated and shame-based “part” of the personality in need of understanding and compassion, achieved via mindful awareness, “parts” dialogue and trauma processing. Our first step will be to create a healthy separation between the "observing" or aware Self and the part(s) absorbed in the eating disorder via mindful awareness. Once this separation between the "whole" self and part of self is established, the Gestalt polarity tradition (empty chairs) is utilized to develop understanding of the shame-based part. This leads to developing more love and compassion for yourself. You are enough!

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.

Using Interpersonal Therapy we will review the impact of your relationships on your emotional and mental health. Eating disorders often manifest as a result of interpersonal conflict or relationships that can be triggering, unresolved issues in relationships, and expectations we have of ourselves and others within our relationships. Breaking this down can be helpful in order to be more aware of how our behaviours within relationships affect us in negative ways. In collaboration we will create healthy coping strategies through building healthier relationships.

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.

The Refuge's team views eating disorders (like addictions) compassionately, as a symptom of unresolved emotional pain or trauma. We can support you in the journey towards processing and healing the underlying hurts that are resulting in disordered eating as a coping strategy. Therapy can build emotional regulation, distress tolerance and impulse management skills on the inside that can reduce the reliance on unhealthy eating patterns on the outside, so that pain isn't so overwhelming. We can also explore body image, negative self-talk, self-criticism, shame, discomfort "being in your body", and help restore a sense of self-worth, self-compassion and resiliency.
