Eating Disorders

Mark Giesbrecht, MA, CCC, RCC

Registered Clinical Counselor / Canadian Certified Counselor

Unit 12B - 1601 Bowen Road, Nanaimo, BC V9S 1G5

Eating Disorders can impact someone as negatively as any type of serious addiction. However, unlike addiction treatment plans, food must continue to play a role in your life. My basic goal is to stop further development of any eating problem you may have, and assist you in returning to a healthy lifestyle. The most successful focus is on harm reduction as an overall principle in addressing eating disorders, with the end goal of moving towards complete recovery. I also typically want to establish effective coping skills to reduce the possibility of relapse and sustain the progress you make in therapy.

In this approach I combine constructive Psychology and Nutrition, which is a Holistic approach to Mental Well being. Counseling clients with this issue requires me to be humanly present and sensitively attuned to the client and noticing even minute subtleties, a connection with the client as one human being to another is necessary to foster a genuine human relationship, because in dealing with eating disorders the therapy is viewed as a collaborative team effort. Neurotransmitters in our brain are known to affect mood and one of the ways to do this is through food intake. Using this method I assess my client’s diet and modify it where necessary.
