I use a cognitive behavioural therapy approach to address disordered eating patterns. I work with clients to help them identify the thought patterns and behaviours that lead to disordered eating patterns. I encourage clients to monitor the habits that they have developed over time and once these habits have been identified we work together to challenge and change them.

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!

Emotional eating can stem from social expectations, family of origin rituals and gatherings, and negative self-talk. Emotional eating can lead to weight gain and health concerns. I use CBT, DBT and ACT to help clients learn to recognize emotional triggers that lead to eating behaviors when not physically hungry. I also help clients develop techniques to mindfully eat, resist temptation and learn to recognize when emotions are pulling at your puppet strings.

Many challenges come with eating disorders, and they can have a profoundly negative impact on your quality of life. You can suffer from an eating disorder both physically and mentally. It can also affect your social life, causing you to become more isolated, withdrawn, and unable to participate in social activities. During therapy, I will teach you how to monitor your eating and your mood, as well as how to cope with stressful situations in a healthy way.

Winnie has walked with clients to understand their root cause of their binging and purging. It is not just the compulsion of binging. Your body and your emotional well-being are also strongly impacted by it. Being aware that you may have some symptoms of Eating Disorders is a giant step. With self awareness, you can learn about what is Eating Disorders, and learn different coping strategies to help yourself. You can make a change! You can break the cycle of binging and purging!

Eating disorders benefit from the same or similar approach used for all addictive behaviours. One of the main therapeutic approaches I use is Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. The relationship to food can be quite complex involving societal or cultural pressures, self-image, past traumas, addictive non-nutritious junk food, media images, social media pressures, bullying. Shame and guilt need to be addressed along with peer pressures. The most common eating disorders are: Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating, Pica, Rumination Disorder, Avoidance/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), Orthorexia, Purging Disorder etc. The benefits of therapy are enhanced self-image, health and well-being.

Eating disorders can threaten physical health as well as mental health and may be associated with other disorders such as trauma, self esteem and body dysmorphia. I work from a comprehensive/holistic approach to eating disorders and often use the potent tool of hypnosis when working with these issues. I provided a safe and supportive environment in which to address these sensitive issues.
