Lifesource Medical Centre, 2130 Robertson Rd., Ottawa, Ontario

Eating Disorders is another behavior that has been learned through practice. It is another habit that can be unlearned. It is effective to go into the underlying reasons for the behavior. There, we will find a lot of self esteem issues and deeply rooted negative core beliefs which are negative underlying assumptions about ourselves. People can greatly benefit from correcting those negative core assumptions so we may stop the surfacing of negative thoughts. By learning how to, we can change negative thoughts to either neutral or positive thoughts, which will tell our brains to make our bodies feel calmer or happier feelings. Only then are we able to stop the self defeating behaviors.

My goal is to support you to accept yourself, as well as care for yourself and your body. I can encourage you to understand societal and media pressures which contribute to eating disorders. I would offer you relaxation exerces and cognitive therapy. I am also trained in EMDR and EFT which help overcome eating disorders by positively shifting our thinking and modifying our anxiety response. By acknowledging you have a problem and want to find a solution, you are much closer to resolving it. When we are in crisis we are more motivated to step out of our old habits that no longer serve us well. I serve adults and young adults 16 +. This is your opportunity. I am here to help you.

Jane Langmaid, M. Ed., RP

Registered Psychotherapist, Ontario

124 O'Connor St, Suite 503, Ottawa, Ontario

My experience is primarily with overeating. I like Martha Beck's "been there" caring philosophy and approach and recommend her book and CD "The Four Day Win". My role is to provide psychological support. In addition to working on historical issues that may stand in the way, there is also a need to befriend the "inner critic" and "wild child" voices inside, and take small steps that are sustainable. I encourage assistance from groups and dietician and provide family/couple sessions as needed.

Eating Disorder Counsellor

Suzanne More Kerr, M.A. (C. Psych.), C.C.C.

Marriage & Family & Individual Psychotherapist

301 - 267 O'Connor Street, Ottawa, Ontario

When I see a client with an eating disorder, I do not focus on the disordered behaviour as such. Rather, together we explore the client's family or origin and attachment history--from which our belief system about ourselves and the world are derived. I see this disordered behaviour as most often the result of the debilitating effect of an attachment wound.

Having an eating disorder can rob you of so many joys in life. The disorder takes over and it becomes very difficult to focus on anything else. I can help you to discover what lies beneath the compulsion to restrict or to binge, and to regulate your food intake. I will refer you to more appropriate services if I feel that you need more of a multi-disciplinary approach, for instance if I feel that your disorder has affected your physical health in ways that I can not help you with.

Eating Disorder Counsellor

Marc Whitehouse, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker

563 Gladstone Avenue, Suite 22, Ottawa, Ontario

My approach to eating disorders is grounded in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I believe that in order to change attitudes about food and health that it starts with awareness and developing mindfulness skills. I will work with individuals to accept their thoughts as just thoughts and not who they are as a person. This will allow us to be able to develop a more healthy perspective that will allow you to be less impacted your eating disorder and to focus on what really matters to you in life.

Richard Merrill Haney, M.Ed., Ph.D. (Counselling Therapy)

Couple Counselling/Coaching and Family Mediation Specialist

Bank Street (On the Rideau Canal), 15 Aylmer Ave. (Entrance at the rear door, at 7 Galt St.) , Ottawa, Ontario

In my counselling practice and in my hypnotherapy practice I often talk with clients about what is "weighing them down" when they come to me with weight issues. If they come to me with an eating disorder that is not about weight but about consumption practices that are hurting them I will ask them how they connect with their external world and their life-style without using food or drink as the connector. In either case I have several hypnotherapy techniques that are specifically designed for overcoming eating disorders.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.
