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 can cause intense conflict within the couple and family system. There is so much stress, pain and helplessness that comes along with the impact it can have on relationships. Specialized treatment is needed, and often times couple or family therapy can offer tremendous benefit to focus on the connection piece between partners/parents/family members. Finding your way back to each other and establishing safety and trust in relationships is key in this context.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Available for Online Therapy

Eating disorders is a very complicated and serious issue which mainly occurs with woman but a growing number of men are also confronting this. We are still learning as much as we can about eating disorders and the opportunities to effectively treat and overcome this challenge. Caring psychotherapy and counseling along with behavior and cognitive therapies are currently the effective approach to reversing and managing eating disorders. It has been discovered that personal body imaging and family as well as social group messages around food, body size and body image have made for pivotal influences in the emotional trauma around food and eating. Transformation is successful with counseling.

Eating disorders are often the result of a dual diagnosis with other mental health issues such as mood and anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and alcohol and drug abuse issues. Furthermore, some evidence suggests that genes can too play a role in developing eating disorders. Treatment options usually merge psychological and behavioural adaptations and medical and nutritional education. If not treated, eating disorders can negatively affect a person’s physical, emotional and psychological well-being.

Registered Psychotherapist & Clinical Director of EnerTherapy

In L4G 2H1 - Nearby to Thornhill.

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.

Eating disorders appear to result from multiple factors including cultural, social, family and emotional pressures; personality disorders; genetics and biological factors. Some research has shown a connection between child sexual abuse and subsequent development of eating disorders. Eating disorders typically begin during adolescence. Moreover, up to 90 per cent of eating disorders occur in women, though men are being diagnosed more. Helping have a healthy relationship with oneself, gaining tools for coping, healing past issues is some of the therapy focussed on.

Psychotherapist

In M4C 1T3 - Nearby to Thornhill.

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.

Eating disorder is a mental struggle in relationship to food and body. It usually occurs with other issues such as anxiety, OCD, self-esteem, and perfectionism. There are different types of eating disorder including anorexia, bulimia, and binge/emotional eating and purging. Orthorexia is also an eating disorder that is caused due to unhealthy obsession with healthy eating. For treatment we work with our clients from a whole system perspective to understand every aspect of the client’s life such as trauma, biology, culture, habit and addiction to help clients unlearn their adaptive responses and change their relationship with food and their body.

Eating disorders are often seen in conjunction with low self-esteem, experiences of powerlessness / loss of control, depression, anxiety, OCD and nutritional deficiencies. Sometimes trauma, or invalidating living environments are also present. The complexity of these elements necessitates a client centered collaborative treatment approach. As a collaborative member of "Psychotherapy Matters" I can offer my clients consultations through tele-health Ontario with Psychiatry, with target wait times of only 3 weeks. I can also work collaboratively with nutritionists and primary care physicians, and families or circles of support.

The two most common forms of eating disorders are Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder. The current research shows that two of the most effective treatments for these conditions are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Interpersonal Therapy. The other disorders are Anorexia Nervosa and Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (EDNOS). The severity can range from mild to extreme whereby individuals experience irregular eating patterns, yo-yo dieting or at the other end can experience life threatening conditions. Eating disorders do not usually resolve on their own, they need professional intervention. It is my goal to help you overcome your difficulties with your eating disorder.
