Eating Disorder Counsellor

Liane Odze-Silver, MA, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

In M6C 3H1 - Nearby to Pickering.

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.

Eating Disorder Counsellor

Mazda Kahnamuyipour, RP/CRPO, Diploma/ GIT

Registered Psychotherapist

In M6E 1M4 - Nearby to Pickering.

Weight and eating related issues are not the causes of our misery but signs of a deeper unrest. The compulsions keep emotions, mostly shame, fear and anger at bay. Times of extreme control or lack of control help hide such uncomfortable emotions. In therapy we will look at those emotions and find ways to move away from shame to compassion and acceptance. When there is less shame, together we will look for tools to empower you to sustain the new found joy and excitement.

Eating Disorder Counsellor

Dan Sileshi

Clinical Counsellor

In L1N 1C4 - Nearby to Pickering.

Eating disorders resulting from societal, as well as inner pressures to control one’s physical appearance or weight have become prevalent among children, teenagers and adults. Within a short time, the victims begin to experience negative physical, medical and social impacts of their condition. Since family has an important role to play in the reduction of this disorder, my approach is to investigate the developmental, social and behavioral factors, as well as the family dynamics influencing the client. A deeper understanding of the root causes of their difficulties makes it possible to help the client to resolve emotional issues and shift into a healthier relationship with food.

We will help you reconnect with your body and develop a more intuitive approach to food, diet, exercise, and body image.

Eating Disorder Counsellor

Gabriela Vilar, MA Counselling

Spanish Bilingual Psychotherapist

In L1S 2E9 - Nearby to Pickering.

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.

Eating Disorder Counsellor

Anna Marson, M.A., RP, CCC, Heartfulness Psychotherapy

Psychotherapist

In M4C 1T3 - Nearby to Pickering.

I am specialized in helping clients explore the root of their problems in order to develop new ways of coping and live healthy, fulfilling lives. Often our emotional concerns manifest externally in ways that may be initially useful for coping in the short term, but over time become chronic problematic behaviours, such as addictions or disordered eating. I use approaches such as mindfulness, interpersonal counselling (therapy through relationship), and CBT to explore the factors contributing to the underlying difficulties to promote healthy ways of managing difficult experiences, help clients gain a sense of control and improved self-esteem, and foster lasting growth and transformation.

Shelley Whitehouse, RP
Eating Disorder Counsellor

Shelley Whitehouse, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

In L4E 5C5 - Nearby to Pickering.

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.

Residential Addiction Program

In M5E 1W7 - Nearby to Pickering.

Eating disorders are a serious illness that cause destruction to a person’s food intake behaviors. They are characterized by emaciation, restricted eating, unhealthy body weight, fear of weight gain, and distorted body image. They may be defined as food addiction, anorexia, binge eating or bulimia. At Valiant Recovery, we recognize that eating disorders and addiction can occur simultaneously. We address eating disorders by providing adequate nutrition, promoting a healthy lifestyle, offering group and individual psychotherapy, and connecting clients to medical care and nutritional counseling.

Laura Kemp-Romas, MA, RP
Eating Disorder Counsellor

Laura Kemp-Romas, MA, RP

Registered Psychotherapist & Energy Practitioner

In L4G 1J5 - Nearby to Pickering.

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.

Sharon Purcell, MSW, RSW, SEP
Eating Disorder Counsellor

Sharon Purcell, MSW, RSW, SEP

Somatic Experiencing Psychotherapist, Coach, and Counselor

In M2R 2A8 - Nearby to Pickering.

Our relationship with food is inescapable. Overeating/denial patterns reflect an effort to combat isolation and the absence of equilibrium in relational dynamics. We are biologically engineered for connection and resonance. When that basic need is not met, we strategize survival in unique ways. By addressing all levels of experience, you can track the sequences relating to choice and absence of choice, be more present to your own emotions, cultivating a deeper connection with your body and yourself which naturally progresses into empowered relationships. Family members can learn to connect and resonate effectively, reducing isolation and creating the longed for feeling of belonging.

Registered Psychological Associate

In L4C 9M5 - Nearby to Pickering.

Many times people become addicted to food, or to the attempt to control their response to food. My role will be to assist you in gaining insight as to how this is hurting you, as well as the purpose of your behaviour. We will then review more adaptive methods to manage your needs more effectively. Sometimes it is helpful to work with your familial supports, particularly if you have been hospitalized for your eating disorder, and family dynamics are impacted.

Carrie Fleetwood, M.Ed. Registered Psychotherapist

Individual, Marriage and Family Therapist

In L3P 7P2 - Nearby to Pickering.

I have been working with eating disordered clients since working in a college setting over 30 yrs ago and I am still using a two-track approach: helping an individual change their behaviour and life-style on the one hand, and then walking with them through many of the underlying emotional and spiritual issues that drive the eating disorder on the other. Compulsive eating, anorexia and bulimia have a tight grip on so many women (and some men) but if you are one of them, I want to assure you that your future is not hopeless. I would be glad to help you get free from this. Call me today with any questions you may have regarding my experience and approach.

Eating Disorder Counsellor

Nidhi Gupta, R.I.H.R, Dip. BSc (Hons), RPc

Regd. Psycotherapist: Individuals, Teens, Couples, Families

In M3J 2C4 - Nearby to Pickering.

Eating disorders are closely related to the intense emotional issues that a person is not yet ready to embrace. Eating becomes a distraction or a way out of these painful emotions, and a ready distraction. The treatment methodology I provide is to do a family sculpt of you as a child in your family of origin, so you can learn about the messages, beliefs and rules your learned around body image, food, sexuality, emotions and feelings. We also explore loneliness and inner child work as a way to uncover how is eating and why? Often it is the inner child who eats because he/she is lonely and feels abandoned. I encourage a deep spiritual practice of mindfulness and bodywork in this field.
